Aaaaaand the Era of Rick's Ascendancy comes to a close...

You're not stealing Rosie's material, are you Scott?

What was it that Scott said?

"I torture Rick out of love. I torture Jenkins out of spite."

We may go back to seeing Jenkins insulted a whole lot more. Pass the popcorn and let's see.

Ha! Why does abusing Rick never get old? I think it's because he never seems to disagree with the insults.

Oh, and as per the new top banner ad, I added an "employment competency" to Jenkins' and the fictional Scott's Diffen articles. Now, Scott is "useless" and Jenkins is "more useless."

And then Scott realized that he could create this app for iPhone/Android, and sell it? :o

I'd buy that app.

Thanks to Diffen for sponsoring BI (it's a great comic, you chose well).

I'm guessing Rick doesn't put much effort into being so very insultable. It likely comes naturally!
p.s. I would also buy that app.

Every single frame made me laugh. Thank you as always Scott!

"If I don't plan things I'll just end up with a mess, like your career."

So. Much. Awesome.

Not sure if this is 300th time this has come up, but after seeing the banner on top of the site today:

Actually, the poet and classical scholar A. E. Housman did keep a small book of insults. Whenever he thought of something insulting he'd write it in his notebook, and whenever he found someone who needed insulting he'd look in the notebook.
