This is a re-run? Im pretty sure I read every comic before and I have never seen this one before o_O;
Very funny! Best one I've read in a while! Keep up the good work, Scott!
Telling me to calm down won't calm me down!
As a matter of fact...it only makes me more angry!!!!
I, too, have noticed that you-know-what always seems to float to the top of the pan.
The number of people I have worked with who have managed to get themselves , somehow, into well-paid posts that they are incapable of fulfilling, and yet can't be sacked because they have tenure, and who spend their worthless days (literally) counting spoons in the break area and sending e-mails to the entire organisation when one goes missing, breaks my underpaid, overworked heart. ( Their work is difficult , unappreciated and often dangerous - they are the "SPOON POLICE" - coming soon to a soulless top-heavy organisation near you)
You're wrong on the yelling/respect part.
Hitler did. :)
I wish I had read this two days ago.......
Thought bubbles are awesome!
Classic! I love it.
I thought this was a new one until I got to the 3rd panel then I finally remembered it. This did NOT reduce my enjoyment in anyway.
This is why I buy the books. The re-read value of these comics is a huge ROI. ;)
Scott... I do not know if you noticed or not, but your Wednesday and Friday comics were not posted on GoComics like usual. I hope that they are still going to feature you.
Note from Scott: I did notice it Friday, but I thought Wednesday posted fine. I'll take it up with the management.
Are there reruns that aren't showing up in your archives?
When I discovered your amazing e-comic I had to have more. Once I discovered your navicgation buttons underneath the comic (and it only took me a couple of weeks to figure those out) I started at the beginning and worked my way through until (sad day) I had read them all.
Or so I thought. Now lately, you are having rerun Fridays - but I swear I've never read them before. And because of my photogenic memory, i'm sure I wouldn't have forgotten such a humorous comic.
Keep up the good work. Loving the new reruns.
"It's hard not to lose your temper" would have been better. Just sayin.
I read several webcomics. This one is more consistently funny than all the others.
You forgot to change the copyright date.You're really late on this one though.
I like the idea of a photogenic memory - "Hey baby, your memory is HOT. Mind if I take a pic?"
These comics are hilarious. i was just wondering are all of the characters based on people in your life or are the just made up for comedic effect?
Note from Scott: A little of both. Me, Missy, and Ric are exaggerated versions of the real thing. Most other people are either largely or totally fictional.
Hey, do you no longer feature your comics at Cracked.com?
Note from Scott: They've pulled back from comics in general of late. I'm still on good terms with them, and there's a chance that they may use my stuff in the future. As it stands, they haven't used one of my comics in quite a while.
That 3rd panel has long been one of my favorites in all BI.
Can't decide if pane 1 or pane 4 is funnier. Leaning 4.
