No means no, a thousand times no...

Next Instruction: How to Ride Someone to Thailand.

March 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterChaotk

Scott, I think you just coined a new international pickup line: "Can I ride you to Thailand?"

Note from Scott: Please, it's "Can I put on a speedo and ride you to Thailand?"

I won't sleep tonight thanks to panel four.

March 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKevin

Awesome! I love the new angle on Omnipresent man. . . the world's fastest, cheapest delivery service! and most reliable transportation! I laughed so hard my cats think I'm crazier than they normally think I am.

March 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPaula

I. Love. Omnipresent Man. Love him. There has never been a bad Omnipresent Man comic. Or if there has, I've forgotten it, so don't remind me.

March 18, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterjzimbert

I love Omnipresent Man too. But I'm mainly saying that because HE'S RIGHT BEHIND ME.

As someone from New Jersey, I resemble that New Jersio remark...

Panel 4: Oh, thank you for that visual! Anyone got any brain bleach I can borrow?

And Scott, you have a warped mind... I really don't want to know where you get all your ideas.

That's because Omnipresent Man's humor is all over the place.

"Oh pleeease, please let me put on a Speedo and ride you to Thailand. I love you long time"

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterNH

What's a Speedo? Is that like half a pair of Speedos? That's just weird. No wonder he said no.

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJames O

In panel two I was sure it was going to be drugs in that envelope.

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJL

Can omnipresent man now teleport things about? Or is it a long chain of passing the item to the next closest version?

Just thinking how unfair to play pass the parcel with him could be!

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJimbob

I can see that phrase being used when you're telling someone that you realize you are asking too much from them. i.e. "Scott, I need you to come into the office on Saturday and do my work for me. I'm gonna put on a speedo and ride you to Thailand!"

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLazlo

You got t-shirt material right there! A simple "Can I put on a speedo and ride you to Thailand?" on a black shirt will be lengen... dary!

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterbrazilian_guy

That's a very disturbing image, The worst part is that everyone everywhere would see Omnipresent man getting ridden by a man in a speedo.

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterFrank

Move over, "Mavis's Bestiality Website"- a new perversion just rode into town.

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPaddy

NO, Scott. It's - let me put on a speedo and ride you to Thailand!

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered Commentertreebeard31

When will we finally get to see Rocket Hat or Omnipresent Man action figures?

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJeremyjb

Is it just me or does Omnipresent Man's logo look like something out of Google Map?

And why is he thrusting his pelvic out in the first two frame? Makes me think he would be willing to give that first guy a ride to Thailand... :)

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered Commentercfg

I promised myself I wouldn't be a Grammar Nazi (today), but that comma in panel one between "world" and "are" is making me twitch. :)

Also, I think "Please! Please let me put on a Speedo and ride you to Thailand!" may be the dirtiest-sounding thing I hear all day. I hope.

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKaa

If you hand him something and he drops it, where does it fall? Do infinite copies drop from his infinite selves or does it randomly fall from one location? Does he choose where it is at any given time?

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJesse

If established continuity still applies, everyone just heard Omnipresent Man say that.

They are still discussing it in Thailand. I don't think he's very popular there right now.

As for New Jersey, there was a documentary about there on The Daily Show once. Wow-ie.

Of course Omnipresent Man has seen what's inside the envelope. A Speedo.

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRobert Carnegie

Surely he's already on Omnipresent Man's back?

March 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJoe

It hadn't even occurred to me that he could teleport items by picking them up and suddenly having them everywhere. My mind has been blown.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

New Jersio looks a bit like a younger, unbespectacled Rick...I think that might explain a lot.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJara

Jimbob, consider these established facts: Omnipresent Man is in frame 1; Omnipresent Man is holding the package; Omnipresent Man is in New Jersey. Therefore, the package is in New Jersey. The details are unimportant!

Jzimbert, it's worth noting that Omnipresent Man is in all comics, good or bad. But yes, I love him too.

March 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJerodast

This actually raises a question that has been bothering me. If Omnipresent man is everywhere, then what about anything he carries? Does it manifest itself in ever possible location or would he have to actually move it? What if he punches something? Would everything suddenly be experiencing an infinite amount of punches?

March 21, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAndy

I'm in Thailand, and I am not sure if you really want to ride all the way here in this extremely scorching hot month! ;)

March 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKen

For the grammarians, I suppose I must concur, panel one does, in deed, need a comma after "People" to justify the comma after "world".

March 22, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterThe Chosen One

Omnipresent Man is everywhere but there is only one of him. Except for that one other guy, who I think was played by Rick. Or by someone else.

Whereas, Multiple Man makes duplicates of himself, his clothing, and personal property. Then they pop out of existence when he merges back.

On reflection, superheroes do need (1) to reinvent their powers at least once a year and (2) go back to the original version again, i.e. ignore point 1. Maybe Omnipresent Man has discovered how to be somewhere only if he needs to be. Or how to be not noticed.

March 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRobert Carnegie

HA! I have a friend going to Thailand soon. I think this would be his travel method of choice :D

March 31, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBlastov

Why didn;'t he just say no in the first place.

May 14, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterFrank Taylor

In a way, he did say no. I think it's one of those test for Asperger's syndrome. Anyway, he didn't say yes.

May 14, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterRobert Carnegie

Oh man I almost busted a gut laughing so hard at this one! :-))
Live long (and keep up the good work) and prosper, Scott! Your wicked humor is absolutely priceless in a world like ours.

October 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJason Toddman

This becomes even funnier when you consider that everyone in the world can hear Omnipresent Man's side of the conversation.
