Pretty sure I don't want to know what the clean finger is reserved for...
Just finished an archive binge for this comic. I have to say that this is one of the most consistently funny comics that I can think of. Good job!
I'm just wearing black until something harder to stain comes along.
Asking if you're green seems extreme, It's more a matter of how green you are as the only completely green person would be in use as compost.
So much man logic in here. I know it's 'wrong' but it feels so right!
Scott- the wife agrees you made a web comic about her "wack-a-doo husband"
Gotta agree with Matthew's comment (and by extension, the strip itself) about the 'man logic' in this one.
Completely off-topic: I just ordered the BI four-book set... looking forward to losing my voice from a laugh-filled book-reading binge when it arrives!
He obviously hasn't discovered "Heather Gray" tees.
Your daily reminder that the extended pinky is the tacky option. If the teacup handle is too small, you tuck the pinky into the palm.
THE MORE YOU KNOW...
Your logic is undeniable.
Obviously, green is relative and black is back.
Fester, the clean finger is for opening doors, picking up drinks, turning on the faucet, etc. have you never eaten messy foods?
> the basic tenets of your system
As soon as I read that, I realized that I misspelled "tenets" as "tenents" in a blog comment this weekend. And now I can't correct it, and it's going to bother me for a long time.
Hey! Chuck & Beans did a black t-shirt comic, too.
If he wants to look good, he needs to wear fake black polo shirts.
traditionally the pinky is used to scratch your self thus you don't want to hold food with it
"I don't eat BBQ in an effort to look refined" should be screen-printed on your designated BBQ eating t-shirt!
If you want to branch out from black, there's always NeverWet. Those BBQ stains would slide right off.
My boss used to eat ribs that way. The clean finger was reserved for answering his cell phone, which he'd pre-set to default to speakerphone mode.
Nix, Nix.You're thinking of the left hand, traditionally only used in the smallest room of your house (yes, they were notably intolerant of sinistrals back then).
It never even occurred to me that designating a shirt as a BBQ-eating shirt could be a punchline. I ... I do this.
The extended pinky is the only way to maintain a sense of dignity when engaging in the hedonism inherent in eating ribs.
I'd have to disagree with Demian's claim that asking if someone's green is extreme. Scott is from Washington, after all. Granted, he's not from the green part, but not everyone knows that.
