    I’m on Rat’s side here; we should all be legally protected from having to listen to morons like Mr. YoBro.

    Especially with people who, like this dolt, can’t be bothered to speak coherent English.

    re: sherlock

    It’s easy enough: don’t go to bars or drinking/drug parties.

    Rat, you have my permission to inflict grave personal injury. Where’s your baseball bat?

    Four of us behind the counter and this one guy kept yelling, "Yo!’ We ignored him until he said, “Excuse me.” Wasn’t out fault. None of us were named Yo!

    Mr.YoBro’s conversational style is very lowbrow…

    I don’t go to bars, but occasionally have to sit beside a very loquacious person on an airplane. One time an old lady insisted that our plane was 2,000 miles above ground. It couldn’t be 2,000 feet, because some mountains are higher than that. I finally just let her rave on.

    For those who are interested, you can get on the Do Not Call Registry here::

    One reason to be glad I didn’t work in the office. The prevailing office conversations were sports, what was on television the night before or what they had for lunch.

    Regardless of the lowbrow style of conversation, more of these strips need to end with Rat being belted into the next strip.

    We used to speak of the Yodude family. They seemed always to be calling out to one another.

    I’m surprised Rat didn’t just taze him…

    Agreed. I’m on the DoNotCall registry and it makes no difference. When you file a complaint, nothing happens. They ask you for contact information and don’t contract you.

    I’ve finally had to pay my phone company $3.16 a month for selective call rejection to deal with telemarketers who keep calling over and over again.

    It is a rare time when I agree with Rat.

    Today is one of them.

    Sign me up! I know Stephan likes to put either bad/controversial strips on Saturday but this would be gold every day of the week for me!

    Does this mean that people play recorded messages at him that he should contact them about the government’s mortgage adjustment plan, and not leave a name for him to complain about the conversation to the government, thereby getting by the no talk rule? That is what happens with our no call on our phone and our answering machine.
