The comic appears today despite Wes and Tony constantly hearing voices.
What, rat poison is people poison?
oh no. quickly we must tell the president.
There may be an antidote in our book of nerd shit.
At least we know we can still poison eachother. He didn’t die in vain.
Somewhere, Darwin smiled.
Oh no, I tested it on myself too! I–
RIP: Rererak, 19XX-2011, Died due to awesome comic.
I think the last two weeks of comics have been unusually good. Yay!
that is because Wes and Tony were replaced by Robot versions of themselves sent back by the only person that hates the glorious and free future that happens as a result of their comics being soo awesome.
Goodnight San Dimas!
Why would anyone possibly test an experimental formula on themselves? WHY IS RAT POISON STILL EXPERIMENTAL???
Why test? Because they can! As for why research rat poison is that rats can become resistant to such poisons. The susceptible ones die, the resistant rats live.
That book looks way too thin to be Nerd Shit.
We nerds have some huge damn books with lots of nerdy shit in it.
Oh, that’s just his collection of notes for the rats behavior.
It is only volume 3.1415926535…
My dog has eaten rat poison twice now. I am certain that it doesn’t work on dogs. People, maybe, I’m not willing to find out personally though!
Despite hearing voices? I thought those were your inspiration for this comic.
Vitamin K is actually “rat antidote”.
Ya dirty RAT
Perhaps they should also keep the salt and pepper shakers off the lab bench. You know, just in case of “accidents” that can’t be remedied by checking in the Nerd Shit book.
Nerd Shit? sounds like a great read.
Only if you skip to the good shit…
that’s right, we MAKE rat poison, we don’t EAT it.
Oh cool! Hand bones!
Dang, that’s too bad, well at least he’s not an executioner.
IIRC, rat poison works on rats because they can’t throw up, and not on dogs because they can. I still wouldn’t try it.
Of course this was an experimental rat poison, so maybe it’s different. Not in a good way, but different.
Half true on the throw up part. Modern rat poison is different and very varied. There are about oh… a dozen or so different types currently in use.
….why….why do y’all know so much about rat poison…..
Um. No reason. Really. Yup. No reason at all…
Lol these are always so good. That’s why I can’t wait for my copy of the catalog of regret
Reminds me of flowers for Algernon for some reason
that story made me cry :'(
I object to portraying rat killin’ science as inhumane like this. When not developing novel antibiotics (and goading colleagues into good triage practice,) scientists work through a Batman Game full of urban menace http://nymag.com/news/features/rats-2011-11/ with poise, bonhomie and good vibes. Some postgraduate degrees of special education are different from others, though.
Did anyone else immediatley think of “Flowers for Algernon”?
