"Sorry to disappoint you."

Definitely one of your best lines.

That last line of panel 2 was awesome.
And I have gotta remember to apologise for disappointing people.
Awesome.

Jenkins is the type of person i would pat on the back...with a crowbar...

Other than that great job! Hilarious!

Basic Instructions has the most hyperbolic commenters IN THE UNIVERSE.

Can a pile of delusion actually collapse under it's own weight?

Panel 2 is gold. Panel 3 is platinum.

And Jenkins would look good on a platter with an apple in his piehole and a long, pink, hairless tail. Who's the PIG-RAT now, huh, smart guy?

Love love love the "I'm sorry to disappoint you" apology. Although it seems to me if I ever have occasion to use it in this context (and I just might), I probably won't be all that sorry to disappoint.

Squeal like a pig!

Hmm, half the text in panel 3 isn't attached to anyone.

@Jawfin: "Can a pile of delusion actually collapse under it's own weight?"

Never, but it can form a government, or a global economic model.

No need to pile it on. I've got the point.

Best BI ending I have seen in a very long time - perhaps ever.

I am so stealing panel three for use in real life applications. Classic!

"I've got the point, but don't expect any changes in behaviour." ;-) Understanding and agreement are two totally different things, as most people fail to realize.

Excellent comic as usual, but I suppose hearing that is getting pretty tiresome eh Scott? Then again, anyone who gets into stand-up comedy probably wants all the positive reinforcement they can get, especially after a long day of surfing the web, completing and submitting RJ-17's, and verbally fencing with co-workers, customers and suppliers.....

Wow, your physique really went downhill between panels 1 and 3.

January 9, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRyan

Beautiful way to continue the day right after I handed in my resignation.

January 9, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAC

Sheer brilliance at every step of the way!

From setup to punch... punch... punch... punch line!

January 9, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterbyevad

This would have been hilarious if a resemblance to real-life events weren't so profound. I'm caught precariously between the brilliance of your humor and my hatred for humanity. Thanks for an emotionally complicated morning.

The RJ-17 form again. I'm getting very curious about that. Or maybe I don't wanna know

January 9, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJoost

I love this ongoing saga of the R-17 forms!

January 9, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPaula

This is an instant classic.

January 9, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterme

@Paula It's a RJ-17 form, not R-17... They are completely different! How could you make such mistake???? Sorry to tell you but even Jenkins would know the difference!

@Simes:
Don't shake the piles of delusions... the last time someone did that the USSR was created. :P

January 10, 2012 | Unregistered Commentersilzz

For anyone curious about the RJ-17 form, just watch the movie Office Space. It's mandatory viewing for all cube dwellers.

Piles of delusions eventually compress, given enough time, like dead plants becoming coal. However, instead of something useful like coal, piles of delusions become cultural icons such as established religion. The end state of compressed piles of delusions is the type of Black Hole into which intelligence and rationality vanish, never to reappear.

January 10, 2012 | Unregistered Commentergobbler

Considering that Rick is Scott's best friend, Jenkins has plenty of reason to believe that he, too, might be Scott's friend. He just never realized exactly what that means.
