OMFGOAS, did I just say "sex or seven?".  Screw this noise, I'm pulling her out of college.

Stargirl Lee (stargirl) says:

I want to do this to my sister's young children. I hope she doesn't mind too much.

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

I have done similar, horrible things to my neices and nephews.  Go nutty.  Some day she'll look back on it and laugh, but until then, make sure your passport photo is up-to-date  :-)

Randy Anderson (ponderpatron) says:

Nope...it's hilarious.

Randy Anderson (ponderpatron) says:

Sometimes the best comedy comes pre-service warmups.

Stupor Hero (stuporhero) says:

Where does ZX Spectrum tape-loading fit in?

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

Wow, that brings back memories!  Blasted my ears out a few times with a Spectrum!

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

I cracked up when I came up with the "exhaustive research" line...

Stargirl Lee (stargirl) says:

I love this. I have a friend with Tourette's. Her first tic was spitting, when she was very little. She made a concerted effort to never swear so it wouldn't get introduced. Her verbal tics in college were "Jesus love you" and "Go to hell".

Sometimes she'd backhand you in the chest with her right hand. It was always dangerous to have her in the passenger seat of a car because of that last one.

I've been subscribed to your RSS for quite a while now, and I'd just like to say that I really like your cartoon :)

Also, some comic creators post small previews in their RSS to get people to click through to their site, but then I just use Yahoo Pipes to replace the image with the original.

You, however, create so wide comics (and the RSS is full size) that I'd have to scroll sideways to read them, but rather than creating a pipe to scale down the image, I click it and visit your site every time :)

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

I am aware of the width problem.  I appreciate your comments and feedback!  I am looking to re-do my site, but I confess one of the reasons I haven't yet is because of the people who have RSS feeds...I don't want to lose them!  Unfortunately, I don't know jack about RSS feeds.  Maybe I'll get some help :-)  My feed is provided by Webcomicsnation, my host.

Maria Monroe (m_storm) says:

You *wish* you were that dad when you met her boyfriends! Either that, or I missed out on all of these fun conversations. However, creepy hidden conversations like this would explain why they all insisted that you were just so awesome and cool...

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

Well, since 2 out of 3 of them were drummers, they were easily impressed  :-)

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

Awesome. I am sure I could construct a comic around someone with those verbal tics!  It makes me laugh just thinking about it.  On the more serious side, I hope it doesn't negatively impact her too much...

scott monroe (smonroe) says:

Is being a maroon mean being 1/5 of a musical group? I think his theology is every quarter, or when his bank account falls below a threshold that he proclaims the world is going to end.

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

Oooh, "Fiscal Theology".  I like it!  Imma have to use it in another strip, I think.

doc martin (madmosher) says:

HILARIOUS! Love the lulzsec segway! Thanks for the comment on mine BTW, I'll be following from here on out. Keep up the fight! 

Terry Clarke (sambista) says:

They look like Jebusites to me, Brian.

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

My wife wasn't sure she got this one, so I referred her to the Reddit comment thread:

http://www.reddit.com/r/webcomics/comments/10kg9n/what_3_items_would_you_want_in_the_event_of_a/

(Not that that helped much, but she nodded and went back to her book)

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Ok. I've been chuckling over this since yesterday... Things keep popping up in my head like, "What's a dirty Gandalf?" "Don't know, but since he became Gandalf the White, he must have given up that nasty hobbit." and, "My, that's a longbow you got there, Elron." Thanks, Brian

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

So many questions have been rattlin' around my head on this one, though I may have figured the first one out...

1. Why do you have hair and no beard ion the first five panels? I finally decided it wasn't you, but another random co-worker?

2. Is that your son that you're telling the story to? The one who likes Hobbits? <G> are you passing on a life lesson there?

3. The title of the strip seems fairly ominous. New directions? And...

4. I'm sure, in the interest of realism, you heavily thumbnailed a real site. No question, really, I'm just happy to say I have no idea what it is. <Smile>

Finally, as always, there's no question at all that the strip is bark laugh funny. I enjoy reading them.

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

Hmmm, you are most observant.  lemme address your questions thusly:

1. Originally, it WAS me in all frames, but in the end I decided to make it a coworker, and then have me (the security guy) only at the end referring to the "incident".  Good Call.

2. That's another coworker.  Note the tie.  Damn, he does look a  bit short, though.  Both my boys are now taller thanme, so...

3. Across the ages, when someone leaves their PC unlocked, one of the first things a coworker does is to send an email to the boss (and CC the department) stating something to the effect of "Dear Boss, I quit".

4. I shouldn't admit this, but it's a bunch of safe-for-work images put together in such a way as to look bad in a thumbnail.  Okay, the fat chick in the thong wasn't quite SFW, but you get the idea.

Thanks for the praise.  Sicko.

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Sicko? Wow, I'm glad I didn't share all my rake jokes from the other day.<grin>

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

There's a whole section on '96'ing!

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

we are of scary, like minds!

Spamwise Hamgee (spamwise) says:

That's great. I got attacked at a party by a giant locust once -- I swear I wasn't drinking THAT MUCH -- and threw my solo cup at it and ran away screaming. My friends thought it was part of the story I'd been telling. :/

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Then along came a spider to help exercise her and frighten some calories away.

Jonathon Barton (jonathonbarton) says:

My personal favorte (because it's easy to remember)...

http://tiny.cc/unattendedPC

I managed to spring that one on You Know Who (Tall, Ginger, Dutch) once...

=)

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

I've been waiting so 'lawn'! Aren't you going to post 'mower' comix?

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

And he has a "soul" patch! Awesome!

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

Hehehee.  But, of COURSE he does!

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

It was nice of that pastor to give that young man a leg up.

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

And to hang around with him!

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

They default to 'national' ads, "Buy a Buick", ads local to the website, "Come see this great play in Seattle" or occasionally general ads for the zip code registered for your wifi, "Find a date in Highlans Ranch!"

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

It's funny that the geolocation puts me in Aurora where (I presume) comcast's POP is.  I see those ads, and think, "I gotta drive all the way to Aurora for a date?"

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Ha! Has anyone (I mean, other than Barb, obviously) told you lately how awesome you are! My doctor is ex-Army, and was in an IED blast. Very sympathetic to all my symptoms... And said only a 'slight' variation of the last panel to me. 

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Are you sure you're not a doctor?

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

...and milk in jugs<snerk> Oomly took me three weeks to notice the title.

 

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

I got a '97'Miata. <Smile> By getting one, now I know what they look like and can pick them out while driving. When I was young I could pick out and ID most of the cars on the road. I'm amazed that my son can do the same thing today, because they all look the same to me. But when I look back at cars from the 70s, it really was all boxes (except for the VW Beatle)

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

Yeah, but the B'mers stood out.  Now, they just blend in with all of the "lesser beings" on the road.  Plus, I used this mostly as an excuse to use the "Subaru Forester"  as an insult.  GAWD I think they are fugly.

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

HA! I think that may be what my brother-in-law and sister just bought. <grin>

BTW, very creative on the 'multiple lines' balloons. Did you invent that?

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

I don't know, but "laziness is the mother of creativity" I think...

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Ah, duct tape, the hackerman's secret weapon! (sorry, rainbow tables reminded me of the tech genius of Red Green.)

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Made me laugh out loud. I think the ending is "spot on".

Spamwise Hamgee (spamwise) says:

Bet that picture's straightened out tomorrow!

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Well THAT didn't work. Let's try this... http://www.skipmorrow.com/collections/i-still-hate-cats#M85-CATS_11_WEB 

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

We had a cat once that we just called "Psychokitty". He would have you pet him and then bite you... Hard! We tried to warn people, but they wouldn't listen, and all the 'Aawws' turned into 'Oowws!'

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

THAT is why I did this strip. I've run into too many AAAAAaaaaooooOOOOW Cats.

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Stand up is tough. You have to take your humorous story or observation and distill and condense it to only two or three lines. Then repeat the process in order to fill 10 minutes (or more).

Lucky you for getting permission for a GF, btw. Too bad you'll never find one as good as B, tho.<smile>

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

Doing an "open mic" is on my "fukkit list".  i don't have a "bucket list", but my "fukkit list" is stuff I want to do "soon".  I have been compiling ideas (like you said, short ones, not long drawn out stories).  Thankfully, this comic only *partially* reflects reality; Barbie wouldn't approve (and I wouldn't want) another female in my life.  Too much work  ;-)

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

In fact, compiline those ideas is what brought my strip to a standstill for awhile.  It's not easy for me thinking in both modes (comic and stand-up).  I missed the immediate gratification of having something for people to see, so here I am, back in the saddle.

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

I'm glad to see it. I've been enjoying the strips.

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

BTW, you'll have to share the elephant joke sometime. <Grin>

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

I guess that's the joke.  There is no "elephant joke".  My buddies and I would be talking, and when someone new entered the conversation one of us would throw out this line and everyone would laugh like it was part of a joke.  It was funny watching the new person laugh, too.

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

That's the thing about short term memory. It's, um, hey, I notice the bedspread hasn't changed.

Brian Monroe (cryptoknight) says:

Sure it has; it doesn't have anyone under it.  It took e FIVE MINUTES to straighten that thing out...

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Ha! You're right. Well done. I didn't even notice, which means, of course, you did it perfectly.

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Ok. It's time to publish a new comic, and I'll give you three good reasons why...

1. Your comic makes me laugh.

2. Your talent needs to be shared with the planet. (3PGI is so much better than, say, Foolish Mortals on GoComics)

3. I'm beginning to get turned on by seeing you naked every day in panel two and it really disturbs me.

P.S. You and Barb should go as stick figures this Halloween! (Variation on a skeleton suit)

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Yay! You're back! You disappeared for a while

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Love it they they were all 'annoying' emails. Every once in a while a 'good job!' Email wouldn't hurt, huh. Hope you get to feelin' better!

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Love the Purgatory Grill. 

"Good evening, Mr. phelps. Your mission, whether you accept or not, is to be toasted like a marshmallow. Then we'll do it S'more and S'more and S'more."

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

That way, for all eternity, he's toasted every day, plus he's forced to also be sweet and gooey on the inside. 

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Darn! You stole my line! It' scary how much we think alike. I had already typed, "Which, unfortunately, were mounted in the same place." Before I saw it.

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Ok. How's this for original. "It can also be adjusted to give Brazilians."

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Maybe I am misreading it. Are the last three conjoined twins?

Nairb Ekceir (ekceirb) says:

Oops. I looked again today and saw that I'd forgotten to add my <snicker>

BTW, What's the name of that cool font you used for "In The Future"?
