New comic! and a comments section all to myself!
Funny as always Adam, keep it up!
Oh my gawd that last panel is creepy!
So my eyes wondered over the comic before I read it and panel four was so prominent that it sort of threw me. That is a seriously eye catching (in a disturbing way) scene! I love it.
Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus!
Didn’t even need to look it up, boo-yah!
…now to find out what APR means.
annual percentage rate aka interest (he should go for the low one, but knowing sucker-bug, he will go high because it is more “interesting” haha)
I once asked if the price of a car included fuel to drive away with, or whether I had to pay for that…not my proudest moment…
I wouldn’t be surprised if you did have to pay. At one dealer the price list on the car window included hundreds of dollars for ADP. That turned out to stand for Additional Dealer Profit. I’m not making this up.
Haha. That first panel hit a little too close to home. I feel like I’m a pretty smart dude, but there are also a great many things that I “know” only from having seen them in a movie/TV show.
The main reason I know what “laser” stands for (light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation) is because of a video game.
It bounces off hills, too!
I must confess-I also only know what SCUBA stands for thanks to Family Ties. It was the one thing Mallory remembered from what Alex taught her, and the one thing I remembered too. I guess that doesn’t speak too well for me…
I always say the words in SCUBA in that sing-song way because of that episode…as for car buying…I’m a lollapalooza
Is that where I got the sing-song from? When I was reading the first panel, I started to say it, and it comes out in the rhythmical chant. But I couldn’t think why.
So thank you, Adam, for allowing me to thank Family Ties.
Yep. I hear them say it in that way too.
We bought a car last week, and indeed, we could have paid extra for them to replace the air in the tires with nitrogen.
We did not pay extra.
Extended warranty? How could I lose?
Ha-ha! I was thinking of that Simpsons episode while I wrote this.
that last panel made me gigglesnort.. i love how the cardealer bug can lick the carbuying bug without the carbuying bug even loko up and wondering what he is doing
walking onto a car lot is similiar to going to a no obigation time share meeting. There is a good chance you’ll walk off with a nifty bag full of promises , a stunned look on your face and many monthly payments waiting to assault your wallet and feeling like a ToosiePop that has been bitten.
Very funny strip. This reminds me of the King of the Hill episode where Hank shows Bobby the ropes of negotiating to buy a new car. As always, Hank worked hard for his special deal, “not a penny above list”.
Was that the one where Hank gave up his beloved truck?
Yes. And was amazed at all the new features of trucks since his previous 20 year+ old truck. Hilarious!
My son, at age 10, owes most of his knowledge of history and popular culture to the Simpsons…
I’m both proud and ashamed…
Nice hair on the car salesman. Could work for televangelist too!
And the licking at the end? Both disturbing and hilarious!
Every time I walk into a dealership I end up embarrassing the dealer when he tries to pull his suave bull. (…”Flux Capacitor” my bunz!!! This thing hasn’t fluxed in years!”)
They try to send the ‘Head Tech’ [read: the kid just out of High School] over to verify various things.
After I let them struggle for a while I’ll let them in on the fact that I’m an Auto God – and “I am not malevolent. I just am!”*
*Apocalypse – X-Men (1992 series)
Family Ties reference win!
MMMMmmm, thuckers are even better when they are repeat customers :p
BAH HA HA Family Ties totally taught me what “SCUBA” stands for, too. And The Facts of Life taught me the periodic table symbol for gold. Where would we be today if fictitious characters never had to study for tests?
Yeah, inexplicable face-licking is usually a sign that *something* is up.
