    Wow I feel dumb it took me about 10 sec to figure out what this comic was about. I like it.

  2. CJMack says:

    @Reign, Don’t feel bad. Took me a couple of seconds too…

  3. PreacherCG says:

    OK, I must admit. I’m stumped.

  4. Good on you Scott!
    Maybe you could start a series of comic called “Took Me A While”. I love this it made me take time to figure it out.

  5. luke7374 says:

    i think i get it…. not sure… more about the pig rite?

  6. Brian Duff says:

    I think Swine flu is so bad… that even Avian flu has to use a mask and gloves…. 🙂

  7. digisam says:

    don’t you watch/listen/read the news?

  8. Kakmize says:

    Sorry pig flu wasn’t the first thing to come to mind. But it’s late here and I was distracted by the bird’s ‘wolverine’ like hands….

  9. PreacherCG says:

    OK, I get it now. I was confused. Who got real news in my gaming comic?


  10. Curtis says:

    Four feet good! Two feet bad!

  11. Zorbane says:

    Poor Porky pig, no one wants to be his friend anymore.

  12. Sensei Szota says:

    Swine Flu is in the town just over from me (Torbay UK) help!

  13. Doughboy says:

    I was wondering if you were gonna make a comic/comment on this one…very nice.

  14. Maleldil says:

    I originally thought it was about Orwell’s Animal Farm, and that the pig had bound and gagged the duck so he could play videogames in peace. I was way off 🙂

  15. Shaymus22 says:

    Wha…ohhhhhhhhhhh. Haha. Nice.

  16. Dourgrim says:

    Hehehe, good stuff.

  17. Gwar says:

    You guys crack me up… it really took you awhile to understand it? I mean… theres been NOTHING else in the news lately.

    The thing that I noticed is this poor duck aint protected. His nose holes arent under the mask. lol…

  18. Asterix says:

    That’s funny!

  19. Dourgrim says:

    All I can say is, not everyone watches the news, Gwar. Just sayin’.

  20. Novan Leon says:

    The controller in the pig’s hands confused me. That and the iron claws the duck has. I’m going to see Wolverine tonight, probably too much Wolverine on the brain.

  21. dman0001 says:

    They are not iron claws, they are rubber gloves over feathers.

    And that is funny.

  22. Falcon says:

    I was pegging Animal Farm myself at first. I guess since I don’t watch news on the TV I wasn’t thinking of the overblown hysteria that is the ZOMG END OF THE WORLD!!1!11!! swine flu. That said well played Scott, well played.

  23. Mike SLC says:

    I wanna know what game the pig is playing?!? Gears of Pork, Left 4 Bacon…???

  24. supersamurai says:

    im with falcon on this one. even if you do watch the news, if you dont live in a state/country with a confirmed case, the way its so overblown paired with the “iron claws” rubber gloves and the addition of a pig playing Meat Fighter 4 for no apparent reason could leave one confused

    when i got it from the comments though, i definitely laughed. ace comic

  25. Lazarus says:

    I was confused too, because the mask and gloves look metallic.

  26. ScottC says:

    Wake me when the Zombie Flu has an outbreak.

    In related news, I found out a World War Z movie is sceduled for 2010!

  27. Reign says:

    I for one thought that the pig had gagged the duck up so he would shut up with his quacking and then put the hand restraining instruments on him so he wouldn’t be able to get the controller away from him.

  28. Jake says:

    Despite being an RN, I had to read the comments to understand. It may have something to do with having just worked for 17 hours straight, though.

  29. Eric says:

    The caption:
    There was a time when one might say that ducks would wear masks and gloves when pigs fly. Well… Swine Flu.
    (That should take people a second to figure out.) 😛

  30. JoyfulAnn says:

    I have to admit I didn’t get it when I first saw it. Somehow the face mask didn’t read to me, and the gloves seemed sharp, and I was wondering why the pig was in a chair holding a controller. That’s ok though, I don’t have to love every comic. 🙂

  31. SteveB says:

    I’m with Lazarus on this one. I couldn’t figure out why the duck was wearing a metallic face mask and claws. It threw me off completely and I work at a large tourist destination in central Florida where I’ve been getting swine flu updates several times a day. I did laugh quite a bit once everyone here so kindly explained it for me though! 🙂

    • Eddy says:

      or maybe you can turn off all the lights when you leave your house an rylcece plastics and paper and unplug you tv and electronics to save energy!!! and spend more time outide . and try to keep lights off and open curtains and let the sun shine through!!!! so what im trying to say is you can save energy and rylcece and be green for the whole 30 days and hopefully keep it going!!!!

    Hurray! Swine flu made it to my town! Their going to close down the schools! Hurray!

  33. BrainFloat says:

    Took me a while to get it. But loved it when I did. 😀

  34. Lazarus says:

    If they were medical blue instead of metalic grey than I think understanding would be instant. I think it’ll be even more misunderstood when it drops to the archives (assuming the flu scare dies down to a dim memory rather than becoming a major epidemic).

  35. Gary says:

    whoah, totally not what I was thinking….

    I was trying to figure out what new controller system had hands and a face-mote. I was thinking it was something to do with Wii for Ducks…yeah…..

  36. Ferouk says:

    Yep with Gary on this, was thinking Pigs had to use handheld controllers and Ducks got to use new VR controllers, hence the “Discrimination”.

  37. Ringo says:

    I had to look at it 3 different times before it clicked. After that it was hilarious. Maybe a poor choice of coloring. I seriously thought the “gloves” were metal slip-on claws.

  38. Lunchbox says:

    Anyone who has been watching the news or reading a paper in the last week should get this right off the bat. Awesome job to make it a topical comic Scott.


  40. AssultTank says:

    I thought it was the duck dressing up as a pig because the pig was discriminating against the duck for being a duck…
