I think this may be your funniest comic yet.

Hooray for unbridled hedonism!

May 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterThe Chosen One

You had better change the year on the comic to 2013 now, there's only 6 more months to go.

May 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterHenry

XD love the meta in this one. Great Scott, Scott, you've done it again!

May 17, 2012 | Unregistered Commentersav

I thought this was a clever idea, and a very funny comic.

And he left this world the way he entered it - covered in bodily fluids and screaming at the top of his lungs.

Wow, It's like a clip-show. Though I'm not sure I remember where panel 2 came from.

May 17, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

Hmm... I look forward to seeing these 4 panels re-used again in later comic... er, I mean, I look forward to later comics with completely new and original art. :P

Matt, it's from How to wallow in unbirdled hedonism, one of my favourites, but still surpassed by this awesome comic

Does anybody know if the Amazon Affiliate links work for any product I order from Amazon? I'm not sure if Scott still gets some moolah if I navigate away from the book and buy something else.

May 17, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterboz

d'oh. I obviously can't count to two. I don't remember where the second panel came from either

May 17, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterboz

Love it.

Not only is the comic great, but there are some exceptional comments this time.

I am hoping that at least some are comments the writers were keeping around in hopes of a fitting comic coming by.

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterlauraf

A genius comic - moved me to post my first comment so it must be good. excellent work sir - keep it up!

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterTed

I normally use the RSS feed, but had to come to the site to post this.

Scott, you are brilliant! This is one of your finest comics for a while, and I'm proud to say I'm going to a party tomorrow as Omnipresent man.

Are you really terrified of birds? I thought was just another gag?

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKevin A Kunreuther

This is the first BI which I have actually laughed out loud to. Or at least, sniggered quietly to myself, for an extended period of time, until people started looking at me in the office.

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJames O

you take clip art to a whole new level.

The lorikeets are the scariest part of Gatorland!

@Matt: Home-made mountain dew.

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCzernobog

Recycling at it's best !

Scott; the artwork in panel 2 seems to be circa 2007-2008, no ??

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMike

Are you really terrified of birds? Just the great big ones, or little tiny ones too?

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterJD

In the second panel, I guess you're using either the word "sense" or "art" in ways that are unfamiliar to most of us.

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLen

Matt, it's from How to Save Money.

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

I think if someone were a really, REALLY, dedicated fan, they would post links to the originals of each of these panels. I, sadly, am only a really dedicated fan, not a really, REALLY dedicated fan.

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterjpoteet2


Panel 2 is from

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterAduvash

I had to stifle laughter at work. Great comic!

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMatt K


(Yeah, really, though. What was panel 2 from?)

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterEaglesQuestions

Wow, Scott, you just keep getting better. This was the funniest in a while. Am I pathetic for knowing where each panel came from, or just a devoted fan? :P

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDBH

Can we get some links to all the originals (if not from Scott then from some enterprising youngster who has more time on their hands than I)?

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDavid

Panel 1 is one of my favorite images ever from this comic. And I love how panel 4 references the origin of panel 1. It's so...artistic.

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterStevenR

so, where DID panel 2 come from?

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered Commentermaribethann65

I agree with the assessment that this may be the funniest one, yet. Bravo. :)

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterKaa

This is brilliant. Funniest comic ever.

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGary

One of the funniest Scott!
Another great example of this storytelling method is the artist draws whatever comes to mind then it's up to the writer to make a funny caption. Check it out!

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterWingnut

I would love to have the original strips that these panels are from mentioned in your comments!

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterthisisntadam

Very funny - both in context, and in the re-using of hilarious artwork for a different purpose. Way to go green!

May 18, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBuck Flicks

I love you & I think I want to have your cartoon babies - can a guy do that?

I have rating stuff I like, saying this is best or this is worst one but this strip here? It is my new most favoritest one of all times - thanks!

Well, unlike you, I am quite certain I remember. That is, I remember not ever seeing Scott in the tub stirring with a 2x4.

Since he left the shower curtain hanging on the inside of the tub, I'm guessing he wants the extra flavoring from the soap scum and mildew along its bottom edge. Or maybe the curtain will be consumed by the sauce's acidity and add a bit of polyvinyl texturing. Mmmmm–hmm–yum.
