Reply Thopter on February 9, 2012 at 12:16 am Way to break the fourth wall. Love it! Reply you'reilliterate on February 9, 2012 at 1:22 am the fourth wall is between characters and audience, not characters and narrator. Reply Google Is Your Friend on February 9, 2012 at 12:17 pm But, by talking with the narrator, it is, in fact, breaking the fourth wall (i.e., having the character acknowledge that the action is, indeed, fictional and/or scripted and that the “real world,” either of the audience or of the author, is separate from that of the character). See here: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BreakingTheFourthWall BTW, I agree with Thopter – way to break it! I didn’t fully realize you were doing it until Pane 4 – well done, sir, well done! Reply Nick on February 9, 2012 at 9:04 pm Lemme just squeeze right in here, between these comments. …So. How’s it goin’? Reply twicker on February 9, 2012 at 12:32 pm Actually, breaking the wall between the characters and the author/narrator would also count. See the TV Tropes page about this. I suppose you could argue that the narrator is Bug and not Adam, but that would make it really weird when Bug talks to the narrator – like, say, yesterday. Or, you know, the day before that. Or, well, right often, as it happens. Reply Vorgex on February 9, 2012 at 2:55 am Bugg dating tips has changed my life! I will never be Forever Alone again! Reply huxley on February 9, 2012 at 8:06 am “Never Be (Forever Alone Again)” would have been a great 1980s rock ballad by REO Speedwagon. And by great, I mean really insipid.

Most of your strips have self contained jokes in each panel which are loosely tied together. This one has a basic premise that just gets more ridiculous that had me bursting out laughing at the end. Reply Omnicrola on February 9, 2012 at 12:02 pm This what made it great to me too The “joke in each panel” is what I love about this strip every day. Reply huxley on February 9, 2012 at 8:08 am My favourite dressing tips are all cribbed from “Plan 9 from Outer Space”. Reply twicker on February 9, 2012 at 12:18 pm Huxley for the win … Reply Richard J. Marcej on February 9, 2012 at 8:39 am Today’s strip had a real “Bloom County” vibe to it. Reply Adam on February 9, 2012 at 12:43 pm I take that as a compliment. Reply Rhea on February 9, 2012 at 3:16 pm Also reminded me of Overboard, where the characters sometimes argue with or even ridicule the cartoonist, and the big guy once came for him with a pair of cutlasses because the cartoonist had let the woman in the bar read the guy’s nervous thought balloons. Overboard is one of my favorites, but Bug has surpassed it on the list. Reply Frances on February 9, 2012 at 3:16 pm For those who don’t know what ‘Bloom County’ is (i.e. me): http://www.gocomics.com/bloomcounty @Adam: Great strip as always 😀 Reply Patmaheiny on February 9, 2012 at 8:51 am GREAT. I just cackled and snorted LOUDLY. In public. >.< There should be a disclaimer on your site, man. You're too funny. Reply Jeff on February 9, 2012 at 9:13 am I’m gonna say “You’re totally ovulating right now” to my wife the next time I can work it into the conversation. Hilarious, Adam. And I agree, there should be a disclaimer on this site. “May cause you to snort in public”. And yes, very Bloom County-ish vibe today. Kudos! Reply Frank Jordan on February 9, 2012 at 1:00 pm Adam, you’re way too funny man! Reply novascottch on February 9, 2012 at 9:46 pm I wish I could swap places with my boyfriend so I could say stuff like this to him XD Reply bakeca milano on April 25, 2013 at 1:22 am mmmm….interesting Reply Steve on August 11, 2013 at 1:33 pm A moment of silence for the fourth wall.
