It isn't ironic unless they ate him.

I think this is the first comic where I like the instructions better than the actual "story". But the artwork IS really cool, and it's cool to reminisce about which strips they were originally in. Great!

May 19, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMartin

For the seekers of the previous strips:

1. How to Face Your Fear

2: How to Save Money

3. How to Wallow in Unbridled Hedonism

4. How to Overcome Your Fear (Scott covered in birds)

The funeral part of panel 4 has had several appearances: How to Create a Running Gag, How to Share Your Enthusiam, and How to Run a Joke into the Ground.

And yes, Scott does have a fear of birds. All sizes.

This comic moves B I closer to the top of the Comic Power Rankings.
Clever, absurd and hilarious.

Thank you, Scott, for this EXCELLENT re-use of past artwork! And thank you, Missy, for linking all of the previous iterations for those of us too lazy to look for them!

This was awesome. Every frame a winner.

I love how there are so many throwbacks to previous comics here.

Grapes, anyone?

I always read in my RSS feeder, but came here to say the same thing the 1st poster did.

And to boz (and anyone else who wonders) - Once you click a link over to Amazon, it puts a 24 hour cookie on you, so anything you buy there in the next 24 hours, Scott gets the credit. (Unless you happen to click on someone else's Amazon link in the meantime - then it starts all over again for them).

I am crying with laughter. This is probably the sort of thing you can only do once, but I do find it hilarious.

The horrified face makes a return!

Yay!

I'm a fan of your comic, so when I read this one, it made me laugh out loud. I think this is one of the funniest of them all.
