oh randomly checking your website 10 times a day pays off a new strip yay!~
RSS – it’s your friend!
You have to have the proper theme music as well, Such as “Eye of the Tiger” or “The Indian Jones” or “Just beat it” There are many good choices, but always wear a fedora!
Why don’t you hire a Pay Per Punch service?
they have that sort of thing in Japan. mostly street bums that set up a sign with prices. the most common are we’re u pay em and jus beat the crap outta them for like 15 mins others are more intense were u pay them and they try fighting back it’s craziness
I’m kinda hoping when/if my wife becomes a widow, she doesn’t wonder about this. Or rather, wonders about MORE than this…
I love the last panel. Made me laugh out loud. I love how he’s trying to read the paper while Bug winds up for the shot.
I once knew a guy who said the prequels were better than the originals. How do you not punch that guy?!?!
The thin veneer of civilization is the line in the sand meant to keep our lizards brains in check (mostly). Unfortunately, the more regressed lizard brains see the less violent means of conflict resolution as sign of weakness to be exploited. Not everyone can pull off David Carradine’s Kwai Chang Caine demeanor where he gives the bully every opportunity to walk away before going all Kung fu on his ass.
What bug needs to throw is the preemptive bluff punch.
I had a neighbor who was always threatening to kick my ass because I was calling the cops on the noise his kids were making with their auto boom stereos (this was after much time and many attempts to deal with the kids and parents directly with no results).
As much as I wanted to bust him one in the chops, I felt that would be lowering myself to his level (as well as whatever legal ramifications/fight match-up, etc.). The last time there were heated words from across the street and there was no point in continuing (after another threat to come over and “kick my ass”), I turned around and started to walk away. The neighbor (Wilbur) was coming for me and called out, “There you go running away again like a big pussy!”
Like an Old West showdown, I turned to face him. Wilbur, like a little yapping dog, stopped in his tracks. With flecks of spittle flying, I growled, “Listen Wilber, if you assault me for *any* reason, you’d better KILL me because you’ve got a HELL of a lot more to lose…THINK about it ASSHOLE!”
He’s hasn’t said another harsh word since.
Sometimes you gotta show a little tooth.
While I was reading this, when it got to the part with the Old West showdown… I actually heard the high noon whistle, and suddenly there were cowboy hats.
I had “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” theme playing in the dark recesses of my mind.
Nerd bug’s pose in the second panel reminds me of similar poses in Bloom County. It probably helps that he’s standing in a patch of grass.
I slapped a bitch once, and broke my finger. Worth it, though. Effing bitch.
I’m not a violent person per se but I do have to admit that those thoughts crossed my mind as well. Damn you Indiana Jones!
Narrator: Well, what do you want me to do? You just want me to hit you?
Tyler Durden: C’mon, do me this one favor.
Tyler Durden: Why? I don’t know why; I don’t know. Never been in a fight. You?
Narrator: No, but that’s a good thing.
Tyler Durden: No, it is not. How much can you know about yourself, if you’ve never been in a fight? I don’t wanna die without any scars. So come on; hit me before I lose my nerve.
Narrator: This is crazy.
Tyler Durden: So go crazy. Let ‘er rip.
