Anyone who wants a higher res version of the third panel, I've totally got one. Email me.

Third panel is going to be a popular avatar, I'm guessing.

darkamnios, August 16th, 2012, 12:45 am

I want to see the higher res version.. I need that in my life..

reverendjack, August 16th, 2012, 12:52 am

i imagine Indiana Jones says the same thing whenever he loses his hat, too.

Quadrant, August 16th, 2012, 1:38 am

Lol as if Mulligan in rage-mode will need keys to get into the van. He'll just rip the door off and hotwire the thing.

Barzaad (Guest), August 16th, 2012, 1:42 am

I bet Viv calms him down... or gets him a new hat... I can't pull of the fedora, I regularly wear platoon caps.

yayness (Guest), August 16th, 2012, 1:45 am

Haha man this is awesome. Have I mentioned today how much I love Patrick?

Anonynonny (Guest), August 16th, 2012, 4:50 am

I really don't like Mulligan and don't see why anyone would EVER BE FRIENDS WITH HIM.

NicoleW, August 16th, 2012, 5:46 am

Really nice work on Patrick's expression in the last panel!

Travis V. (Guest), August 16th, 2012, 7:05 am

Panel 3
Lol! Panel 3: Best. Comic. Panel. EVER.

Jess (Guest), August 16th, 2012, 7:36 am

@Anonynonny: Agreed. Especially now that he's all but told them he feels like he's better than them.

Tsuki (Guest), August 16th, 2012, 8:16 am

I can't fucking stand people like Mulligan -___- he just pisses me off more and more with each page.

Jeffko, August 16th, 2012, 8:18 am

@Jess: Nah, he's just a Rage Whore, an offshoot of the primadonna persona. He gets off on his wee tantrums. I'm guessing that's how he deals with stress and angst. Os this the healthiest way to go about it? Hells no. However, I've had friends like that and they were all highly entertaining and profoundly loyal. Plus, seeing them freak out actually meant I didn't have too, so it did wonders for my disposition.

Towel (Guest), August 16th, 2012, 8:32 am

Man, Mulligan. You're such a prick xD.

Towel (Guest), August 16th, 2012, 8:37 am

@Jeffko: Well, it's a matter of perspective. If you're willing to put up with this kind of shit, kudos to you and your infinite patience, but being a 'Rage Whore' (do we really need to include demeaning vocab in every single thing we come up with...) simply means somebody needs to calm the fuck down, grow up, and learn some respect for their fellow human beings.

This kind of shit is intolerable in a group that works together. If it happened in the workplace, the raging asshole would be sacked and sent to counseling, and if it was a relationship, it would be a GTFO asap situation of potential violence. In real life, people who can't control their tantrums often overlap with the group called 'abusers'.

Making excuses for them is anyone's right, but it's just evading the problem. I do not tolerate Mulligans among my friends anymore. I'm nobody's therapist and nobody's mum - we are all adults, thus capable of making the decision of behaving like adults.

I'd rather find loyal friends who also are not verbally abusive and throw childish bullshit around like this.

Jeffko, August 16th, 2012, 8:58 am

@Towel: How about Rageadonna, then? Rageaholic? It has a ring to it. Also, let me clarify that I once HAD friends like that, as I mentioned. Specifically, it was in my late teens/early twenties, when I suppose my patience for or amusement toward that type of behaviour was optimal. Now in my mid-thirties, I most certainly would not tolerate it.

I suppose having a guy like that around in a band/tour context generates more tolerance than it would in a work environment.

The man clearly is attached to his hat. Of course, the way he deals with this is childish and aggressive, but I've seen people get attached to sillier things and panic when they misplaced them. The man feeds on his emotions; it's what drives him, but it's not like he's losing his shit all the time. That's where he's at now and hopefully he'll grow out of it.

Like Patrick said, the man left without the keys, so maybe just being outside for a bit will calm him down. Am I making excuses for Mulligan? Perhaps. However, I believe that being a good friend also means helping others out. Maybe Mulli'll get worse and crash and burn, or maybe being around the boys and Viv will make him into a better person. We all grow based on the relationships we share with others. Also, I'm the King of Wishful Thinking.

As much as I loved panel 3, panel 5 had me laughing so hard I couldn't breathe for a minute. Jesus, I would totally be the guy that held onto the keys through all of that. That was fuggin' EPIC!

TacoTotes, August 16th, 2012, 9:31 am

I always say that I had an ex-boyfriend like Mulligan--but the fact of the matter even HE'S not that bad--and he had some pretty bad moments. That boy has no redeeming qualities, his hat is RIDICULOUS, he's a giant prick, and uses the C-word way too much. So yeah, he needs to get a life and grow the fuck up. I hope Vivian doesn't waste her time with him, he's not worth it.... end rant. Sorry, I can't staaaand people like that, if I had my choice of what my cameo placement was I'd say it would be kicking Mulligan in the nuts, but I don't so I hope to god someone does. :)

artcurmudgeon, August 16th, 2012, 10:10 am

Oh my.....
That is what is known as having a Hard-on of Hate. Love it!

Artephius (Guest), August 16th, 2012, 10:36 am

Maybe that hat really meant something special to him? His dead dad's hat and the last thing he's got to remember him by? And people are just making fun of him because he's lost his hat. Some people expressed sad and despair as rage...

Though, IMHO, Mulligan is probably just an ass.

Xasswuwe (Guest), August 16th, 2012, 10:40 am

@Anonynonny: The free drugs.

If any of the characters dies later on, I hope it's Mulligan, and only Mulligan. I really think they'd all be better off.

fallenpoet (Guest), August 16th, 2012, 11:46 am

Fedora's are SERIOUS BUSINESS! Also, it could very well be sentimental, or he's using his hat as an excuse for his breakdown. Could be the drugs and stress are finally getting to him

BlackRosePhantom, August 16th, 2012, 12:11 pm

Loving that Mulligan, a notorious misogynistic chauvinist, announced that he has a cunt which he wants sucked by everyone. Irony doesn't get more beautiful than this page.

Remnants of Nana, August 16th, 2012, 7:08 pm

The expression on Patrick's face in the last panel is priceless!

twaddle (Guest), August 16th, 2012, 8:36 pm

@Quadrant: I guess he pulled a Mulligan....

The_Hankerchief, August 16th, 2012, 9:23 pm

Sure hope Mulligan knows how to hotwire the van. haha

Onyxlight, September 29th, 2012, 11:43 am


Now that was a rant for the record books!
