I thought of "irritating people", but there are already proffessionals who are better at it than I am.
Rick's last name isn't Shaw, is it? Panel 2 makes me ask...
Use a RICKshaw! Get it?
Oh, the wit!
I <3 rage-face Rick.
Dang, Ric was looking downright svelte back in aught-eight.
How about I start the whole thing off by getting the inevitable 'wahhhh haven't we seen this before wahhhhhh' over and done with. Yes. Yes we have. And is it still awesome? Yes.
And here I was thinking you were going to suggest he run with the bulls. When did the fairy wings come in?
Rickshaw ... Hah!
You got me at running from your own mortality
What's with Rick's right hand in panel 3? He looks like the Karate Kid getting ready to paint the fence.
I must say, I do not remember this one from the archive. I don't know how I don't, since it made me laugh out loud, which is a rare occurence. The first panel alone could be a single panel strip by itself.
There is not a statement you can make that cannot be improved with the addition of Jazz Hands.
See Rick.See Rick run.See Rick re-run.
(see what I did there? huh? huh?)
Even as a re-run, I still love it!
old style rick startled me slightly. Still funny though
"Fleeing like a coward from your own mortality"That is a brilliant line!Bravo!
Knowing Rick, Rick's rickshaw would likely be really rickety.
Any cartoon featuring jazz hands is automatically rated +1.
I love your work Scott, you know that.So can I make one insy-tinsy request? As I read the comic everyday, regardless of whether it's a new comic or not, may I please ask you don't post reruns on Fridays? (Or Mondays?) Because that's a intolerable 5 day wait from Wednesday to next Monday for a fresh comic to feed my addiction. If it were possible that reruns could be shared Wednesdays when necessary, that would make for only a 4 day withdrawal - I can handle that, the shaking isn't so bad, but by the 5th day...
Question: Haven't you already cornered the market on exploiting and humiliating Rick?
Fleeing like a coward from your own mortality ... how did my Ex sneak in here and why is he impersonating Rick?
second panel was golden..i have to clean up my keyboard YET AGAIN
