How to Create an Urban Legend

Yes, a rerun. Sorry about that. Missy and I ended up moving on less than a week's notice, and it's eaten up some valuable production time.  Expect another rerun in the next couple of weeks.

It will now be my mission in life to incorporate "INDEED! FOR I HAVE EATEN THE SLAW!" into as many conversations as possible.

Hope the move went ok. I guess I had forgotten this one, didn't feel like a rerun

Intentionally misspelled words have been throwing the FBI, CIA, and NSA off for years. Every teenager with a cell phone is well aware of this trick.

Also, the assertion that Wendy's uses only "fresh, never frozen beef" is quite true. Every Wendy's has a live brangus kept alive in a special laboratory, which can be accessed only through the freezer. In this lab, square slabs of beef are cut out of the side of the brangus, In the laboratory, the wound heals very quickly with special treatment. Nerve endings never grow back, so the brangus feels nothing. It is the freshest beef available in any fast food chain. I regularly order a double Baconator® there and haven't had a bad one yet.

The bacon itself comes from live pigs as well, but it is harvested by sloughing off the skin of the critters which are kept under the deep fryers, which drip on them and cook the bacon on contact. The pigs feel excruciating pain, but hey...they're pigs. Who cares.

@Jay in Oregon , I'd be interested to know how that works out!

September 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJordan

I will live in fear of the octo-chickens for the rest of my life. You are a genius

I keep laughing, just thinking about that fourth panel. Occasionally I stop being able to breath and the tears of joy prevented me from typing this message for about 20 odd seconds. This'll be entertaining me all day.

Scott, so far, you are the only maker of internet funny stuff that constantly produces funny stuff, every day, without fail. Kudos to you.

for rerun it's brilliant Happy Labor Day

September 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKevinKunreuther

OMG! Just too funny. I think octo chickens would be tasty. All those extra legs. And maybe wings?

September 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJess

yep, the slaw made me kinda sick too!

September 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJames Yeamans

Question for Scott: when you decide that you are going to publish a rerun, how do you decide which one is the correct one for a rerun?
And about the "octo-chickens"… I don’t know how, I don’t know when, and I barely know why, but one thing I promise: someday I’ll make a low budget “B” movie, (preferably rated “R”) called: “The Curse of the Octo-Chickens” or maybe “Night of the Octo-Chickens”, I haven’t decided yet, but it’ll have pure classic stuff, a lot of: gore, a lot of nudity (the chicken nudity kind), many guys in whity southish suits stalking PETA members. An instant classic. What about this tagline: “The secret recipe… for the end of the world” or “The secret Recipe… of death” I don’t know I’m open to Suggestions.

Note from Scott: I usually just try to think if anything's going on that reminds me of a comic. If not (as with the most recent rerun) I just pick a comic I like.

I must've forgotten this one, it's great. Panel 4 slays me.

September 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTheTick

Scott, do you mean change of permanent address or evacuation due to the weather down there?

Note from Scott: Thanks for asking. Change of address.

September 5, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHari

AHHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. This is too finger-freaking good. xD

September 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMuhammad Jalal

"For I have eaten the slaw!" Priceless!

September 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnathoth

Everything in this strip is true and valid, beware the octo-chicken!

Hope everything is going well in the move :)

September 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterWally

It seems like you two just moved IN and now you've had to move OUT with less than a week's notice? That SUCKS! Hope you and Missy and the cats are coping. I didn't remember this one as a rerun, so hopefully the next (rerun) you have to give us will be just as damn funny (this was a good one).

September 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBI Fan

An oldy, but a goody. this is one of my very favorite BI's.

September 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTrip

Ah nice flight of fancy. Everyone knows that KFC is a warning "Kontains Freak Chicken".

September 6, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTheStevens

Love it! I also love that you used "jibe" correctly! I can't count how many times I've seen the word "jive" instead. (Yeah, stuff like that irritates me. What of it?!)

September 6, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterlefty891

One of your best Scott!!

As a long time reader (i can quote some comics with more accuracy than i can quote "Reservoir Dogs") i think a good idea that has not been done yet, i think, would be "How To Creep" or sneak up or scare someone. just think - crouching down with the jazz hands pose, ready to sneak up on someone or scare them. just a though. love this one, too, though, what with the army of octo-chickens.

September 7, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterpooker

RAWK, Polly shouldn't be!

September 11, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterByron Black

Q: What does a free range octochicken taste like?
A: We don't know. No one has been able to catch one.

September 14, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterbillzz

Still one of my absolute favorites.

September 19, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterI, too, have eaten the slaw

I have been reading these in reverse order for a couple of weeks now, and happened to hit on this today (1 June 15). It is a rerun of a comic I have not gotten to yet, obviously, however the funny thing is that the Kovertly Frozen Colonel is currently suing a blogger for the 8-legged chicken thing, so Scott better whatch out.
