Not only do they barely cover you, it goes straight through them when they do, because there’s not a damned thing there to stop it! Oh, and the half-hearted bodyguard. His timing’s good, but his jump is half-assed and he ends up running you into the ground after you’ve been shot. Reply Some guy on June 30, 2011 at 5:29 am Wouldn’t the very skinny bodyguard fall under the “fragile bodyguard” catagory? Reply Ijon Tichy on June 30, 2011 at 10:40 am Nah. The fragile bodyguard is a weako who breaks on bullets (or is too soft for them). The skinny bodyguard could be perfectly strong, but there still isn’t much in the way of bullet absorption in him! Reply Jim Drummen on June 30, 2011 at 12:03 am First comment I do believe Third and last panel are hilarious ! Great comic as always Reply Jim Drummen on June 30, 2011 at 12:04 am Although I could be wrong with the first comment bit…. 😛 Reply Sandy on December 7, 2012 at 2:11 pm If you stuck with “FIRST!!!!!” you might have made it in time! Reply Dabisnit on June 30, 2011 at 12:07 am I hope ones like the second to last ones dont actually exist. They should only be given crappy phones from the nineties so there is no angry birds or tiny wings haha Reply Chaucer on June 30, 2011 at 12:08 am Let’s not forget the bodyguard in the red Starfleet uniform who dies before he can jump in front of anything. Reply dreamweaver13 on June 30, 2011 at 12:28 am LOL on panel 2! Even the “noooo!” was midgety. Reply williamkattwilliams on June 30, 2011 at 12:36 am I’d be more annoyed by the hypersensitive bodyguard always jumping in front of me…drinking fountain…hugs/kisses… (think Clint Eastwood bug in In the Line of Fire). I think your best options are: 1. Hire a ninja bug to continuously orbit you at ninja speed 2. Hire Crasher Squirrel Reply Let on June 30, 2011 at 12:53 am That last one, hahahahaha :-). Reply LoveTheBadGuy on June 30, 2011 at 1:47 am OMG! Each panel just got funnier and funnier! I am literally laughing out loud (and getting some rather odd looks as a result, but ah well, it was worth it!). Reply Hierro on June 30, 2011 at 2:46 am LOVE the last panel! I’ve actually joked about it with my brother but your implementation of it is much funnier! Reply Smølfen on June 30, 2011 at 2:56 am I looove how the bug who is going to protected just stand there and look down at him being shot at D Reply Stranger on June 30, 2011 at 3:04 am For some reason that look makes me think “Dang it, not again” XD Reply ecky ecky on June 30, 2011 at 2:57 am NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! I would be the look to the other side and pretend nothing happened bodyguard. Reply smudgeon on June 30, 2011 at 5:42 am hahaha – Dig Dug! How can it not be on my mobile telephone? Reply ManateeJohn on June 30, 2011 at 6:25 am I love it. Somehow it reminded me of a defective “Spy vs Spy”. Reply Zoltan on June 30, 2011 at 7:36 am Five gags today! A superlative strip. Reply Cadier on June 30, 2011 at 9:27 am I love how Bug in the second/third panel looks at the bodyguard instead of the bullet. x’) And because I’m obsessed with Repo! I can imagine them going: Bodyguard: “OOF! My soft nougaty center!” Bug: “Nougaty center?” All the other bodyguards: “NOUGATY CENTER!” Anyway, who is the shooter? ^^ Reply Joey on June 30, 2011 at 10:53 am “Oof! My soft nougaty center!” may be the greatest sentence ever written. Reply Alessandro on July 1, 2011 at 8:57 am Amen to that. Reply Jonjon on June 30, 2011 at 11:13 am A. This was absolutely epic. B. I think there needs to be a part 2 based on some of the comments above!!! C. My first thought on finishing reading this was just thinking about how delayed his reactions have to be if he waited three days, got himself to the grave, and THEN jumped while screaming noooo! Reply RubertBear on June 30, 2011 at 7:47 pm I think the delayed bodyguard was more along the lines of waiting three days after Bug got shot to go to the grave,waited three more days THEN jumped screaming NOOOOOO!! Reply Rhea on June 30, 2011 at 11:46 am An article about Secret Service training said that their job, ultimately, is to be a “meat shield”. ## 1 & 2 suck at that. The others aren’t even trying. Reply NinjaBlackLlamaClan on June 30, 2011 at 12:31 pm I feel I would either be the overly confident or the slow to react body guard… Hmmm… this may require research on my part to decide which kind I would really be. Reply Dashboard on June 30, 2011 at 10:58 pm So you’d be the bodyguard that stands in front of the tombstone and says “Don’t worry mate, i’ve got you covered” Reply Bethluvsbooks on June 30, 2011 at 1:25 pm Which is why I employ two fragile bodyguards. After it has passed through both bodies the bullet only goes partway through your body. Reply Anders on June 30, 2011 at 3:27 pm Good thing Tim McCarthy isn’t nougaty. Reply ogeezus on June 30, 2011 at 5:38 pm lol this made my day! hate to be that type of guy who makes suggestions but how about something about dmv lines? I was waiting in line while reading this lol. Reply Mimi on June 30, 2011 at 6:13 pm the last panel was way too funny! oh lord! Reply Rodent on June 30, 2011 at 7:22 pm Best bodyguard probably would be Bud Spencer 😀 Any upcoming comic about bodyguards that are good at their job? Reply WingSpin on July 1, 2011 at 8:19 am The last panel is comedy gold. Hillarious! Reply Kimberly Temple on July 2, 2011 at 4:20 pm Your webcomic is seriously my favourite anywhere! That last panel is perfection! Every comic is just hilarious! I love them! <3 Reply Kaliganforever412 on December 2, 2011 at 3:17 pm Did anyone else read “Soft nougaty center” in Arnold Schwarzenneger’s accent? (Also, I have no idea if I spelled his last name is right or not…) Reply Faytl on September 26, 2012 at 1:00 am Probably my favorite strip Reply Locku Cisse on September 24, 2013 at 11:47 am Except for the midget, he keeps hiring the same useless dumbass! Reply asterisc on September 9, 2014 at 11:00 am fav Reply Coga19000 on June 2, 2015 at 4:11 am Not that it makes the hole any less hilarious, but most unarmored human bodies fall under the “fragile bodyguard ” type. Unless a bullet is specifically designed to not penetrate, or if the gun is to weak, a fire bullet can pass easily through at least two people. Now, if he was wearing body armor under his suit, that would change everything. But if you can afford a body armor, why waste it on your bodyguard? Just wear it yourself 😛 Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
