How to Share Good News with A Friend

In this week's unprecidented Asking the Wrong Guy, Rick asks for your advice! Please, send him an e-mail!

On an utterly unrelated note, I thought I’d point out a book I have not read, but all of the proceeds from it will go to The One Fund Boston to support the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. 

The 27th Mile includes a mix of fiction and non-fiction contributed by a wide range of talented writers who run. They're marathon champions and weekend warriors, ultramarathon racers and fitness joggers, running magazine pros and bloggers, best-selling novelists and indie publishing standouts, people like Amby Burfoot, Ben Tanzer, Kathrine Switzer, and Lawrence Block.

First he tells us that he can satisfy his wife. Now he gets a big bonus. STOP SHOVING YOUR AWESOME LIFE IN OUR FACE MEYER!

Ha! Ugh! Me laugh plenty! Like a cave man seeing Al!
By the way, I think the time is right to remind everyone: All-Star voting ends on July 4... so log on and vote for panel 3 now!

Panel two is pure gold. Subtle and funny, great work, Scott. Not that the following panels aren't great, too.

This seals it. Allison is my favorite character already. When does she get to be a superhero, or perhaps a supervillain (the nicest and happiest supervillain ever)?

Panel 4 is unprecedented gold.

"It'll just confuse him, like a caveman seeing an airplane."

Best line of this comic. Awesome.

Some times I check this site daily. Sometimes I'll go a week or so between visits. Every time I visit, there's a new cartoon. I check the "Recent Instuctions" and at the top of the list, every time is the last Instuction I read. I have never, ever missed one. HOW DO YOU DO THIS?

fannnnntastic! "like a caveman seeing an airplane" had me in stitches. your comic is marvelous. keep up the good work.

June 25, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAngel

I loved the airplane line, but panel 2 is what did it for me. I burst out laughing.

Oh, God, Allison as a super-person. Please let this happen soon.

June 26, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterRebekah

I wonder if Allison is based on someone Scott actually knows. In a comic she's hilarious. In reality maybe not so much.

Allison is loosely and loudly based on my best non-Meyer friend. Scott and I and Mr. Garbagecan agree, she's a hoot, and an absolute delight. ~Missy

Thanks, Scott! Good news indeed!

June 26, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterRay Charbonneau

I agree, the Allison-Meyer exchanges are quickly becoming some of my favorites!

Oh, sweet fancy Moses yes, please make Allison into a superhero!

June 26, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJen

If the roles were reversed in Panel 3, would Scott's analogy be "like an indigenous alien race seeing the Enterprise rise from the ocean"?

June 26, 2013 | Unregistered Commentersimilian

So why did Mullet Boss give Scott a bonus?

Scott, have you done anything recently that made you want to take a shower?

June 26, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDevinC

Like many, I had seen a few of your comics whilst perusing the CRACKED site.
I finally took the time to go through them all( Been doing this for some time, you have.), though, in reverse order, very much worth the time.
All I can say is that you have firmly ensconced yourself in the top five of my favorite web comics...I'm sure you're ecstatic.
Definitely going to have to check out your page on Google+.
Stay cool and froody.

allison is just damn hilarious! but seriously scott, is she a real person?

June 27, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterkevin

The "caveman seeing an airplane" line is an instant classic! Loved it!

June 27, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBart

Consider this a second vote for an Allison based superhero... Imagine her reaction to Rocket Hat and the Moon Emperor.

June 27, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDavidC

I know a loud Allison too, and I send her all the comics featuring her, and she always replies I'M NOT THAT LOUD, and I really have a nice time. Thank you.
