speaking of small talk hunting: First!
Small talk is one thing, but how about those people that are completely clueless to your signals too? I meet my neighbor in the hallway as I was bringing home a hot pizza and she just start yapping about the weather, her latest cold and how she quit smoking 35 years ago – well excuse me dear, but the steaming pizza box I'm carrying might suggest that I'd rather go eat it while it's still hot. Yesterday I was cornered by her after coming home from a run, hot as hell, sweating like a pig, do I: A) Want to go up to my apartment and have a shower? or B) Listen to you telling me about your daughter and son-in-laws latest vacation?
She's a nice lady and I don't mind chit-chatting, but please, read the signals and pick the proper time!
I struggle with the same thing, although I’m learning to break out of the habit. My system tells me it’s not “polite” to tell someone I don’t want to talk, because I might “hurt their feelings”. So instead of simply telling the truth, I go through secret contortions trying to keep myself from doing what I actually want to do, all the while getting more and more irritated at the person who is failing to read my mind. A little honesty can be so liberating.
My vote: people that stop unexpectedly in front of you while walking. Bonus points: they are slow and hence easy to hunt. Extra bonus points: Dynamite fishing allowed if they are on (or looking at) mobile phones.
People who stop and talk in stores instead of shopping. Hello!! I'm shopping here if you want to chit chat go to facebook and post 9 pages of farmville updates while you talk about how your kid made honor roll or something. (seriously, not bitter at ALL) ;op
I just like the camaraderie between bug and nerd bug in this comic.
Me too. I had a smile on my face while drawing this one because of that.
I guess that’s a case of “My enemies enemy is my friend” or something… 😀
Can we at least hunt down the people who keep buying tickets to see those movies?
i'd go for the 4th panel adam…definitely the 4th panel 😀
2nd that …yeah I am bitter!
Okay. Open hunting season on all those incredibly rude young people on the bus who don't give up their seats to those who really need them like the elderly, the handicapped (or severely injured), the pregnant or those with baby carriages.
(oh, can I get a special hunting license so I can hunt to extinction all my idiotic ex-boyfriends?)
i think ur covered by the 4th panel
No, they were hunting down someone’s attraction to jerks, not the jerks themselves.
Glasses bug not so jerkish this time. Looks like a friend in this episode.
Adam! You need to make an app so I can view Bug easier on my droid at work. 😛
what about the girls who walk close enough behind you that you feel obligated to hold the door for them but then stop to talk to their friends, leaving you there holding a door for nobody?
Panel 3 — SHUSH! Don't give Dreamworks any ideas!
Na na na na naaa gettin' piggy with it!
Upon viewing the first panel my first thought was: 'Huh, Nerd Bug and Rambo's love child.' Of course, that could have also been the result of a mind empty of food fuel. -ponders- Anyway, great comic! XD
love the second panel.
HAHAHAH i def. had a good chuckle today, i like how bug and nerd bug both wear the same thing wen hunting and fishing great strip today 😀
Despite reading your comic religiously, I have never commented before. But I felt it necessary to tell you that I absolutely LOVED the last panel. I pretty much died laughing.
Nerd Bug's line in the last panel is a classic.
Well you can always hunt jerks in real life.
I'm with you 100% Adam id hunt them all
Hahahahaha nerd bugs back in killing season again lol
Ah, bug and nerd bug, united in the face of common annoyances.
Though i’d like to date someone at least regular good-looking-ness, I would never dump my BF for a nicer looking guy. I choose who to like/love by personality.
