You forgot the very skinny bodyguard. 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.
Wouldn’t the very skinny bodyguard fall under the “fragile bodyguard” catagory?
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!
First comment I do believe Third and last panel are hilarious ! Great comic as always
Although I could be wrong with the first comment bit….
If you stuck with “FIRST!!!!!” you might have made it in time!
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
Let’s not forget the bodyguard in the red Starfleet uniform who dies before he can jump in front of anything.
LOL on panel 2! Even the “noooo!” was midgety.
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
That last one, hahahahaha :-).
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!).
LOVE the last panel! I’ve actually joked about it with my brother but your implementation of it is much funnier!
I looove how the bug who is going to protected just stand there and look down at him being shot at D
For some reason that look makes me think “Dang it, not again” XD
I would be the look to the other side and pretend nothing happened bodyguard.
hahaha – Dig Dug! How can it not be on my mobile telephone?
I love it. Somehow it reminded me of a defective “Spy vs Spy”.
Five gags today! A superlative strip.
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? ^^
“Oof! My soft nougaty center!” may be the greatest sentence ever written.
Amen to that.
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!
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!!
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.
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.
So you’d be the bodyguard that stands in front of the tombstone and says “Don’t worry mate, i’ve got you covered”
Which is why I employ two fragile bodyguards. After it has passed through both bodies the bullet only goes partway through your body.
Good thing Tim McCarthy isn’t nougaty.
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.
the last panel was way too funny! oh lord!
Best bodyguard probably would be Bud Spencer
Any upcoming comic about bodyguards that are good at their job?
The last panel is comedy gold. Hillarious!
Your webcomic is seriously my favourite anywhere! That last panel is perfection! Every comic is just hilarious! I love them! <3
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…)
Probably my favorite strip
Except for the midget, he keeps hiring the same useless dumbass!
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
