The pictures coming out of the North East are just horrifying. Seriously, I fully endorse sending some money to the Red Cross.
The insert key joke is a classic.
Love the skulking artwork, and the last panel is pure genius.
This is one of the great third panels of all time.
I prefer the "CRTL, ALT, down arrow", flips their screen, inverted the X/Y axis of the mouse, and really makes em scratch their heads!
"Pressed the insert key." Haha, still cracks me up.
"I think it's perfectly obvious that I am skulking."
Well there's your problem.
This is the type of plot that could easily backfire. What if his computer was already in insert mode due to an accidental button press?
Hoodie Scott needs to be on a hoodie.
And the unibomber wore those mirrored sunglasses. That's the problem with copying the murderous psychopath with the most recognizable signature look. People will spot it when you get it even slightly wrong.
I remember this one. All that tailored artwork for one joke shows real dedication!
Do I detect another Sheckley influence? http://www.e-reading.org.ua/chapter.php/149381/10/Sheckley_-_Citizen_in_Space.html
I used that same getup as UniBomber back in Halloween1993. I taped a few road flares together, attached a wrist watch and ran some wires from a d-cell battery and a piece of clay. It looked more real than my costume. lucky I never got arrested carrying that around all night.
Glad you chose this one to rerun. Insert key is my favorite keyboard-centric prank. Then it's swapping the N and the M keys.
Wow, what a coincidence. That's my Halloween Costume, almost exactly.
Jenkins, standing idly by, (as is his MO) for some reason works for me.
Yes! The skulking-hoodie Scott on a hoodie... with the caption "Think, man, THINK!"
The eighties called, and they want their keyboard joke back. Where's my Mr. Pibb rerun?
So now, Scott will be blamed for it, because he was skulking. And then get fired. Er ... congratulations?
Oh my... for Halloween, I dressed up as Skulking Scott Meyer before I read this reprint. Just uploaded it to Google+
1) Scott tries to maintain low profile2) Crowd gathers. Lol.
I like how more and more people gather around Scott being "stealthy".
