How to Alter Someone's Perspective

One of the unexpected dividends of attending Comic-Con is that there is actual physical merchandise (A snazzy new version of The World’s Violentest logo shirt, and a new coffee mug) left over and now available for purchase in the Basic Instructions Store

And again, thanks for using my Amazon Affiliate links  (USUKCanada).

So Rick succeeds at failing?
If he were to fail at that, he would be successful. But if he was successful, then he would make himself fail even more...
I am confuzzled.

I think that as a social species, to have a positive attitude about problems we need to feel that we're not alone. Of course, Rick isn't alone. He has Scott. But that looks like one of Rick's problems.

Can you simultaneously fail at succeeding and succeed at failing ?

Scott's "kissy-face" in the fourth panel is more than a little disturbing - especially directed at Rick . . .

What does the coffee mug say? Couldn't read it and I'm dying to know?

Side A: "DECAF COFFEE puts me in an irrational murderous rage, but leaves me far too sleepy to act on it." (Scott's voice balloon: "Destroy ... them ... all ... zzz")

Side B: "Caffeine keeps me alert. Too much could make my heart explode. At least I'll be alert when my heart explodes."

Based on How to Quit Drinking Caffeine.

I suggest changing "snazzy" to "zazzy" as it is more zazzy. Think you could deal with zazzing it up a bit. A little more zazz is all you need.

Awesomely funny!

I've had this exact conversation before.
With a co-worker.
Not verbatim...
THE DETAILS ARE NOT IMPORTANT!
