I can't help but think that this comic may be based on actual events.
Can we get a link to this Muppet Jim Henson please, Scott? I googled it and found nothing.
Note from Scott: Here you go!
Wonderful :-) Thanks for the laugh - I needed one.
Hah! Nicely done! Was the pun in the 3rd panel intentional?
Your link got me wiki-walking the Muppet wiki for an hour. Which was probably a good thing.
Hahaha! Well, in the words of Picasso (and later Banksy) "The bad artists imitate, the great artists steal."
I got a good laugh out of this one. And your Henson Muppet was awesome (even after seeing from your link that you had a model for it).
It's not easy being...
I suspect that the first three panels exist solely to provide context to the final panel.
Here's some video of the Country Trio in action:
Wow, Kermit is a jerk when he wants to be.
So, "FELT like an idiot" wasn't an intentional joke?
Hey, is that a new scott drawing in the last panel?
You could try selling it as a Muppet Jesus. I foresee no problems whatsoever with that plan.
Can't see it in the last panel, but Scott also has a hand up him.
It's muppets all the way down.
"Felt" was a great pun, whether intentional or not. I still give you credit, Scott! :-)
Can Muppet Jim Henson join the Legion of Super Heroes, and the Knifeketeer? Somehow I think he and Rocket Hat are a team made in fan heaven ...
My uncle and I actually did this a while ago, straight down to the Kermit on his hand. SO THIS IS NOT ORIGINAL.j/k
Haha, c'mere puppet.
Is this the first time we see what I'll for now dub as scott's "Wow, this sucks"-face?
The first panel was my favorite this time around. It reminds me of so many conversations I have with a certain friend of mine. Anyways, thanks for the laughs during the week!
If you had a Muppet Mohamed to go with the Muppet Jesus in a set then you'd have a real original that might make you (ahem) famous.
Why is your website advertising for a scam to "immigrate to USA?"
Scott, among the thousands of BI ideas you get by readers, please think about writing "How to survive, another, end of the world".
Would be great for 2012 and already a rerun for all up coming end of our specie (you could take the next cataclysm day off).
Again, as usual, love your work!
Wait, in the first panel, if both of your ideas were to tell each other that you shouldn't tell her your idea, then you wouldn't have told her that your idea was to not tell her your idea. Therefore, she's very much mistaken in the exclamation that both of your ideas were the same (as we, as the readers know well) or else a paradox would arise.
Also, can I get a Scott hand puppet with a Jim Henson puppet on his hand with a Kermit puppet on Jim Henson's hand? Because then, maybe, someday in the future people will clamor for a puppet of me. With Scott on my hand.
People don't have to testify against their spouses, so Missy would've been okay there.
