    @AD: This comic was in Random Magazine a few months back. Till then I had not introduced these dudes on the site. Do you read Random Mag?

    Check the guy’s expression when he says ‘who would have thought how hard it is to retrieve a silkworm from your ass’ :D

    Have you named this fellow? I understand he’s filling in for the original Toe Nail dude.

    I had a grimace and a grin on my face while reading this comic..I have to tell you, the combo of those two expressions looks very weird

    you’re gross. by the way have you ever tried messing with people’s minds by actually saying any of this stuff to anyone?

    Dude this totally rules. I like your edgy stuff more than the normal stuff any day.

    Talking about grossness, I had just written a poem recently with many of the philosophical underpinnings that you have referred to here. http://daily-humor.blogspot.com/2009/05/shit.html

    @Ans: The problem with Namaste is that Toe-Nail guy gets all his “excuses” on himself :D

    Btw Saad how much time did you spend coming up with the various scenarios? And is this the 1st comic to feature all major characters so far?

    Saad Akhtar (Author) // May 21st, 2009 at 11:12 am

    @ @nks, alex, simply ridiculous, sheba: Thanks! The internet did not disappoint me. Glad people can appreciate grossness :P

    @abhiroop: A great observation Sir! For this feat I’ll offer you the chance to name these 2 characters. Remember, Bubu is already taken.

    @eesha: Nope. Never said this to anyone.. because I never had a silkworm or damp skin problem. I wash hands regularly.

    @rohan: An Epic Poetry! Ode to a turd. Future generations will marvel at this. But your post said graphic imagery ahead, but I saw no image. Slightly disappointed. :(

    @varun: Don’t remember how long it took… I keep adding to these things in Evernote. Till the time is ripe. And this isn’t the first one with multiple characters, that was the Independence Day one.

    Hey, Got your link thru Greatbong blog. Good work, love the style of your graphics – It’s like Purani Delhi Dawaakhanaa ads.
    Ever thought about printing a book? (You could contact the people who printed ‘Kaari’).

    Saad Akhtar (Author) // May 21st, 2009 at 12:38 pm

    @heejeebeejee: Ha.. Puraani Dilli Dawaakhanaa :D Good one.

    Who, or what is kaari? Google gives weird results…

    Kari, actually. Graphic novel by Amruta Patil and the first publication in the genre (or was it Sarnath Banerjee who got there first?).

    You going for a gawk at Mr Tharoor today, Saad? Maybe he can guest star here ;)

    First up, the comic is awesomely disturbing, in the best possible way, I assure you.

    Also, I’ve started a blog called “A Comic A Day”, where I put up (as the name suggests) one comic everyday sourced from over 70 different web comics that I follow. Yes, I don’t manage to get much work done in life. I’ve linked to one of your earlier comics in my latest post, I hope that’s all right with you?

    I read your rules for copying the comics, and no, I’m not an evil person. Do check out the blog if you’re interested, got some nice comics in there. Cheers!

    very nice

    I’d love to catch Swine Flu than ‘actually’ trying to do any of those things…
    Awesome work! Was about to fall from my chair…

    In childhood, every damn guy, who got disturbed with this comic, used to tell these gross-y jokes and enjoy them and now they are making faces – double standards. I still love jokes with damp skin, dump, silkworm, farts and many more like that. Anyway is there any good website with fart jokes with animation and sounds?
