True story! That's what I saw. That's how it made me feel. I tried to work in a joke about how when they grow up they'll sound like Droopy Dog, but I didn't really have the room.
Thanks again for using my Amazon Affiliate links (US, UK, Canada).
thanks very much for sharing, very funny one ;)
I think "sound like Droopy Dog" is snappier than "look like basset hounds". But then, basset hounds, yes, the visual is pretty good.
If you used alt-text you could get the alternate punchline in there more smoothly.
Just something I noticed, lately your comics have been more philosophical than practical. Also, where's that long-requested "random" button?
tellt hat to my friend's little brother. He lost him thumbs playing that game. It's not pretty.
Aw, the double fishhook. Just be careful not to let your foe bite you.
"Sometimes it's like you don't even know me."
Richard Nixon could be called loose-lipped... at least the way he is impersonated vocally in [Futurama], which is playing daily at the moment where I am. In the 31st century setting of the show, 20th century and earlier celebrities are preserved as animated heads in jars, whether this is logical or not, and Richard Nixon's head got elected as President again. Sad but funny. I just played a bit of the David Frost interviews online to compare, I hope I got the real ones and not the movie.
I believe that the Inuit have a very similar sport.
Pure gold in every panel. The fact that this was "Based on a true story" is the icing on the cake.
> Aw, were they playing tag?

when the 'you' said approximately 'kids today are profoundly different', i figured there were real guns instead of nerf guns. or maybe saw blades instead of frisbees (wham-o flying discs if you are old enough to remember those instead)
HA HA HA! I read this one to my wife & she laughed her head off.
I found the comic only mildly amusing until your comment 'true story'...Then I broke out laughing.
Real life, such a wonderful state of insanity. Fiction(comedy) writers can only hope to match the absurdity.
I think it could've been done adding Droopy Dog.
"If someday the countries greatest inventors are two guys that look like basset-hounds and talk like Droopy Dog, I won’t be a bit surprised."
Though it was great the way it is.
Basic Instructions always gives me a smile.
I LOVE the "Sometimes it's like you don't even know me" line. Brilliant!
Brilliant, Scott. It had me laughing out loud.
