Is this the first time we've seen "disgusted to nausea Scott"? That pose make the comic. This was hilarious as always.
Well, I feel really stupid. The first comment I ever posted on basic instructions had a typo in it. I must now ponder how best to reflect on my shame, so as to prevent such an occurence in the future.
@sean: occurence? If you're in a hole, throw away the shovel.
THIS KEEPS GETTING BETTER AND BETTER!!!!sry but i had to shout it out loud... for you know, effect

Don't worry about it, Sean; You're sure to be permanently banned for daring to make a typo. Scott NEVER does that in his comix, and he simply won't stand for it in the comments.
Hasta la vista, baby!
I love the comic, but your wife doesn't look disgusted/uncomfortable so much as excited. Maybe it's just me. Otherwise, great episode.
Hmm panel three kinda reminds me of the time I deep throated a Slim Jim. It's been nearly a year and my friends are still scared. Muhahaha!
It makes me glad to know I am not the only one horrendously creeped out by lip balms applied with fingers.
and the sharing... THE SHARING.....
I laughed more at this than any new BI in a while... and I enjoy me some BI.
@Simon: Yes, that's her excited pose. Maybe she has a thing for disgust? That would explain why Scott went off to fetch his phone.
@SimonDefinitely not uncomfortable, but it certainly passes for looking scared, like a stereotypical female upon seeing a mouse running around. Within BI, Missy doesn't strike me as the type to be scared of a mouse (more likely to shout for the cat to come do his job), I'm just saying it's that type of pose.
Wow, so I was busting a gut on this one from panel one.
"On an unrelated note, do you think it'd hurt to scrub my nasal cavity with a toothbrush?"
Freaking GOLD right there.
A very disgusting and nauseating comic. Love it!
Have to agree about Missy's look in the last panel with her looking more excited than disgusted.
mmmmmmmm......... strawberry lip balm......... almost as good as cherry chapstick, at least that's what Katy Perry says..... in my mind......
Great from the first panel, keep it up.
There's a very fine line between excitement and disgust.
Another great one, although Mark's Slim-Jim comment almost upstaged today's BI.
I confess, I've frequently offered people a hit off my lip balm, with the express purpose of making them uncomfortable.
Loved it. Your genius continues to astound.
A new pose! It's a classic. I think it'll have a lot of utility in future cartoons featuring mullet-boss.
Panel 2 onwards just left me uncontrollably laughing. I'm still laughing as I type this, oh man.
Would this be a good time to say "NGAHH?"
Panel 3. Gold... as always.
Note to self: Do not type any comments after work. Apparently, I lose the ability to type like someone with two fully functioning hands by the end of the day.
What is great about the first panel is the startling awareness that actual molecules from his lips are inside your nasal cavity. That the two of you are this intimate. Then the horror to realize this is always true and the scent is just cluing you in to this reality. Once acquired the knowledge can't be removed.
try it. try to now not realize this is always true.
