Yeah, I pretty much rehearse all my voice messages (even if only in my head) before recording them, and think others might benefit from doing the same. 🙂
Wow. It’s been a long time since I was the first to comment. Feels kinda good. But not as good as I felt when I read this strip. Super funny, bot. And pretty much super true. 😉 The Cornfather waits for no man…er…I mean no XBOX 360 when he’s heading to the beach. Great colors, great dialogue, and great facial expressions. Way to go, man!
i think you’re supposed to yell out “First!” or something there, MC. 😉 thanks for the kudos! glad the Cornfather’s insensitivity toward jefbot could make you feel good. 🙂
Awesome! I always take forever to make important decisions too – and to me everything is an important decision – so I’m always a amazed and slightly horrified when someone like the Cornfather just wings it w/o rehearsal or reviewing every possible scenario. 😉
i hear ya, Z. i’m always amazed and horrified that there are almost never any consequences for those friends who “wing it,” either. 😛
OH NOES! CF is surely going to pay for that one! I can see Jebot just shaking with pissed offed-ness 😛 I foretell the tackle and takedown of CF! I can honestly say that most of the time, I do tend to rehearse what I am going to say even if it’s to a live person and not voicemail. (But most of the time my mouth can’t keep up with my train of thought which is like a fast moving train, and I usually end up sounding like a babbling idiot.) JB’s facial expression in the last panel is amazing! Another one to make me laugh! Love it!
agreed, Spanky – rehearsal time is not just for voicemail, but can (and should, imho) be applied to pretty much any social interaction whatsoever! 🙂
Ah… my abs hurt from laughing so hard!
awesome! glad to cause you some pain there (in a good way!), Stan. 🙂
the question that third panel leaves is a good one… Does jefbot simply twitch with the malfunction or spring into action to exact his revenge? Your strip makes me wish for Fridays almost as much as the weekend beckons.
anticipating the next strip is one of the highest compliments i can get, so a big thanks for that, 11teen! but as for whether jefbot will exact his revenge or not… yeah, you’re gonna hafta wait ’til friday to find out. 😉
Puahahahaha. I think people should too. Though I kinda go with it and then play it back and keep re-recording until I get it right.
i do the same thing, ImitationAsian; even just recording the greeting on my cell phone takes me many, many takes. 🙁
I personally think there will be a lot of twitching for Jefbot…especially if Cel comes to the party…
heheh. yes, i think there will be much twitching in jefbot’s future, too, Hans. much twitching. 🙂
NO! WAIT!!! KILL YOU!!!
Ok, that lat panel prooved that Jefbot is his sisters Brother. Well, I guess it also depends on wheter he does something about Cornfater destroying his attempt to ask Cel out. Dont you agree Xinda?
But it was good to see Cornfather take the initiative into his own hands when Jefbot was taking too long.
I cant wait until next strip, but on the other hand I know its worth the wait. Kudos Jefbot!
thanks, Maryz. i can’t tell you how much i appreciate you and all the other readers who come back for each strip!!! and what you said about jefbot is very true – he does have some of the same dark blood running through his veins as Xinda, only he’s much better at keeping it in check. had it been Xin in that situation instead of jefbot, the Cornfather would be dead by now. end of story. 🙂
Agreed with the cornfather. Great emotion conveyed in the faces. Love it. Can’t wait for the next…
thanks, man! see you here friday! 🙂
Oh man I used to ALWAYS rehearse/write down all my phone calls and get all strung out with Anxiety. Now I’ve got this super swanky job were I talk to a bunch of professionals and crazy parents all the time.
Piece O Cake.
ooh, maybe that’s what i (and jefbot!) need: a “super swanky” job, Vee (anybody need a graphic designer/actor/webcartoonist?)! or maybe you can just give us some pointers. 🙂
Oooh…that’s eeeevil Cornfather..your eeeevil 😀 Great strip!
glad you aren’t fooled by his innocent-looking exterior, TadBot – the Cornfather definitely has a little evil in him. 😈
Wow xD That’s perfect, great comic.
glad you dug it, Nat!
Haha! Made me LOL on that one, Jeff. Well done.
thanks, JM! your LOL is much appreciated!
That wasn’t very nice of The Cornfather… however, I must admit… it’s probably better than a rehearsed speech would have come out! I love Jefbot’s face in the last frame! EXCELLENT job as always!
very true, funnyshaffer – sometimes a rehearsed message can sound a little too rehearsed. and jefbot was definitely going into “too rehearsed” territory, there. 🙂
Nonononono….this is baaad. I’ve had a friend use my phone to text a girl, and she never spoke to me again after that….. 🙁
did she assume it was you or did she know it was your friend, speearr!? i’m afraid to even ask what he texted her. actually i’m not – email me and let me know what the text message said. 😉
YES!! Mad Cornfather ownage! Initiative owns you Jefbot!
ha! it does indeed, CheddarMan!
Reaction A: Time, tide and the Cornfather wait for no man; and I’m afraid that includes you, Jeff…
Reaction B: “KILL YOU!”
That line made me lol so hard…
glad you liked that line, reynard61! it totally worked for me once i took the “I’ll” off the front of it. 😀
i sense another honor comic coming up next…come on JB…i know you want a piece of CF….he aint so tough…lolz….KILL HIM…….indeed=====>/<3 wakizashi through the heart…lolz……
methinks the Cornfather was lucky there was no wakizashi within grabbing distance, JF3! although, the Cornfather does have moves as evidenced by this strip.
awesome………………..i won……..thanks JB…and also thank you Mombot….woohoo
congrats! lady luck and MOMbot have smiled upon you.
3 guesses as to who won the BOTton.
First two don’t count.
IT’S-A ME! MARIO!
I… I mean… Darkwolf901.
heheh. the BOTton might not be as valuable as a gold coin, DarkWolf901, but i hope you’ll enjoy it nonetheless! 🙂
Way funny! What’s the best is when you recording your well thought out message and someone is in the background making funny noises. Awesome Strip. And thanks MOMBot… You Rock! But you know that already.
with the Cornfather as a roommate, i count myself lucky when the funny noises are coming from his mouth, epikto! 😛 oh, and CONGRATS!!! MOMbot does indeed rocketh.
Awesome ‘Bot, Dorks in love. 🙂 I only really rehearse what I’m going to say if there is a lot emotion behind what I want to say. ^^
i hear ya, DJ. sometimes it’s easier to contain the emotion when it’s rehearsed. and yes, dontcha just love dorks in love? 🙂
you made me LOL in my soup. and then i ROFL’d myself. this is one of my favorite strips of all time. and the jefbot expression in the final panel is high-larious.
super happy you liked the strip so much, skinny! sorry ’bout your soup. 😉
This will defenitely make Cel believe that Jefbot is a perv. *LOL*
Oh man. The cornfather is either very cruel or he has a death wish! HE make it sound like if Jef has a crush on Cel (which we all know that is true no matter what certain bot keeps saying *evil laugh of doom*)
“…really, REALLY wants you to be there. Please come so he doesn’t ruin the party with his sobbing…”
Watch it, jef. Cel will come… with her father’s shotgun! *bwuahahahahahaahahahahahaa!!!!*
see!? i’m glad you totally get why jefbot’s having a conniption, Sonitan! he’ll never be able to shake cel thinking he’s a perv, now! i guess i’ll have to make sure he’s wearing a bullet proof vest to the beach. 😉
And THAT’S how it’s done! Cornfather doesn’t mess around!
true dat, JK!
I got to try that some time….though, I don’t own an Xbox or Ps3
Most can relate to this one, except for maybe the Xbox. Great dialog and facial distortion.
Yeah, it took a big enough chunk out of his soul it almost turned him into a member of the Gorillaz.
I do this too, rehearsal, several takes, let my wife listen for confirmation of its awesomeness and then sending and hoping. Just started reading this webcomic Monday, looks like i still have quite a bit to go, but enjoying it quite a bit 🙂
