How to Make Conversation with Someone Who You Have Not Seen in a Long Time

The advice Rick asked for from the readers of his advice column (I’m not sure he’s doing it right) are in, and the result is that from now on he’ll be putting out two smaller columns a week. That starts today, with a column I didn’t get published until midafternoon because I forgot.

Anyway, it’s out now!

Been reading for years, but I have to say, I love a punchline a strip. Love it.

Panel 2 is a good definition for a recursive function.

I love that shirt. I would buy it if it were available.

Great comic. That last line is the best!

I like the murse he always wears. All that guy needs is one of those Indiana Jones type fedoras and he would be the perfect modern day male yuppie archetype.

Panel 3 was the funniest I thought

Heh. Before I read any of the text, I saw the character in the thumbs-up shirt and thought, "I think I've seen this guy before -- shouldn't I recognize him?"

Which, in context, turned out perfectly.

Okay... so... um... someone help me out with the shirt's meaning?

@ boB

I think it's related to this older comic. Not sure though.

Sometimes I think I should pursue a career as a corporate trainer. It seems lucrative, and all, but I have certain handicaps to overcome.

I understand what workers do, I can actually pronounce foreign words correctly, I like to produce measurable results, and I have an aversion to idiotic "teambuilding" games.

I'm not sure these are surmountable. I think I need some corporate training.

@Matthew To know recursion, you must first know recursion.

I kind of like the idea of a corporate trainer who dresses like he thought it was Saturday when he woke up.
