Again, I should mention that it's the holiday season, and that both my most recent book (USUK, Canada) and my 2013 Calendar (USUK) would make great gifts. Really, almost anything purchased using my Amazon Affiliate links (USUKCanada) would!

How would Scott see his own expressi- Oh! Reflected in the shiny metal asses of the robots as they leave!

Has this been done? "How to travel back in time to deliver a dire warning to your Former Self"? Still, it is hilarious

How did/will Rick lose his hand?
As I finished that sentence, I realized I actually don't want to know.

@Birren, I think he lost his hand in an "accident" with a self-aware robot.

Or a Thankgiving dinner gone horribly wrong!

@ Contrajoe - Scott has stated previously that he feels he's running low on topics (since he's done a couple), but not on ideas, and that we may see some repeating of topics since he's got a lot of unused material.

@ Birren - Knives, man, knives.

No... please... not the candy corn Oreos >_<

[Note: I have not tried these yet. I may, with trepidation.]

I would have a hard time believing anyone claiming to be from the future if they were wearing a Spiderman codpiece.

Good thing you didn't put the past and future "pointing Scotts" in the same panel, 'cuz if you had, the universe would have exploded.

"Also, no one in the future knows what the words 'cassette,' 'stereo,' or 'watch' refer to. And by 'phone,' they mean 'handheld computer'."

For the benefit of UK viewers - please can someone explain 'candy corn' (We know what Oreos are)

I'll let Wikipedia do the talking. This stuff is like autumnal crack for me. ~Missy

Nice codpiece.

Excellent comic, as usual... but the highlight for me was Missy describing candy corn as "autumnal crack" in the comments! ROFL!

I would have a hard time believing anyone claiming to be from the future UNLESS they were wearing a Spiderman codpiece.

"A single pill's worth of nutrients from an entire meal" was absolute genius.

I have never told you how much I love that your younger self wears a Flood t-shirt. Allow me to tell you this now: I love it a lot.

@Rick from the U.K. Candy corn is a cheap, super-sweet treat given out at halloween, but the main joke here in the states is that basically no one likes them. they're kind of just like filler, and yet, year after year someone thinks it a good idea to buy it and give it out to others. hmm.. kind of like fruit cake.

Lose the cod piece, Meyer. It makes you look suspiciously French.

My husband actually likes candy corn (shudder).

December 11, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLolita

Is there any other codpiece that would be more pleasing to you, Mr Tee?

BTW - fucking love candy corn

December 11, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJaymz

Most of us hate candy corn because we ate too much as a kid and got sick off it, hahah. I know I did...and all these years later just the smell of candy corn tips my stomach a bit :/
