Sentient Cleansers Appraising Triplicate Sequels

I apologize for the late SCATS today. Yesterday was mad for me. I had a full work plate and I was running my first ever CLAW business meeting. Tack on to that the fact that I gave a reader the opportunity to choose this week's SCAT subjects and it all worked out to no SCATS time for Stowe. However, I really like how this particular strip turned out. Kevin wrote a killer script and Joe Izenman suggested two great subjects. Half way through drawing this strip the Scrubbing Bubbles cleansers became a horrid squeaky clean version of Stephen King's Langoliers in my mind. Word to the wise... in the SCATS bar... always heed the 'CAUTION, WET FLOOR' cleaning signs.

As for the script content: I am the one that had the David Fincher makes good/bad/good/bad movie scenario. I have held that belief for years. It only took about 5 minutes in the bar for Joe Izenman to poke huge holes in my theory. And yes, it was I that thought Alien 3 was the FOURTH Alien movie. Kuddos to Kevin for writing a script that incorporated a conversation with the actual reader involved with that making of the strip for the week. Excellent work.

If you too want to me privy or contribute to the real life conversations that inspire SCATS from week to week I invite you to join Kevin and I at The Red Hot bar (2914 6th Avenue, Tacoma, WA 98406) between 5:30 and 7:30 each and every Monday night. You witty aside might actually make it into or inspire a SCATS strip. At the very least, the Red Hot serves the best hot dogs and craft beer in town.


Thanks Stowe! I hope everyone realizes how much of a talent this guy is. The detail he puts into his work is pretty astounding -- I mean look at how many of those scrubbing bubbles he whipped out! Just want to echo what he said about joining us at The Red Hot. It's a great way to start off the work week and our ears are always open to fun conversations for SCATS.

But Sigourney with a shaved head, that's at least pretty hot! Admittedly I've not seen any Alien movies beyond the second so clearly I have some catching up to do.

no. Sigourney big blue and with tail is hot.

Those Langoliers freaked me out! Almost as much as the guy from "Perfect Strangers" (Bronson Pinchot) as Mr. Toomey in the made for TV movie version. I think A3 wasn't bad upon repeat viewings. Having foreknowledge of an alien bursting out of your chest for half a movie? Now that's tension. A4 was great up until the alien human hybrid nonsense... Didn't bother with AVP... Oh, and 2012 would have been much improved if it were the Langoliers destroying the world instead of some geological mumbo jumbo... Man I got a lot of random going on today!

Scrubbin' Bubbles are the aphids of the cleaning world

I like it that Mr. Clean and the Scrubbing Bubbles crew follow the filthy flies whizzing in the urinals.

I suppose Mr. Cleans urine probably doubles as some kind of high powered disinfectant.
