There are only a couple things I would change.

1) Add Arnie. And Oracs pup. That would have been funny 😀 (But Orac is hysterical as is)

2) Add me saying “hehehehehe” in my first panel. Plus, one additional panel with me jumping up and down, clapping my hands saying “YAAAY!” over Nisbets unconscious body Nisbets Theory of Framing.

**giddy clapping** YAAAY!!

I might have to change my ‘Douchbaggery!’ category to ‘EXTREME RANDOM VIOLENCE!

    That last panel will the be springboard for Clue 2010.

    The researcher did it.

    In the lab.

    With a centrifuge.

    I wonder if this doesn’t provide us a clue as to what’s really happened with Nisbet. Maybe he got so caught up in his own spin on framing that he has centrifuged his brain. 😉

    I still think Abbie needs a cape. ‘Cause, you know, she’s a fucking superhero.

    (Incredibles) No Capes Dahling! (/Incredibles)

    Or something like that. I’d include a link to that youtube clip if I could remember how.

    Use the old one over in the corner — it’s already broken!”

    I’d add some more “ERV”.
    – When Abbie shows silly people how science actually looks like, this is what happens.
    – When some nonsensical noise arrives at scienceblogs and sciencebloggers hear it and dissect it line by line, this is how it looks like.
    – One of these guys represents this blog. The other, the poor, unlucky pieces of douchebaggery with which it so kindly deals.

    As I said to you in another context, I think you should clip a bit of that last frame and work it into your Sb banner.

    Just brilliant.

    Green and blue wrestling tights, wielding a centrifuge???

    I am going to have to be very careful the next time I run into you in person.

    But would you not prefer to use the centrifuge on a creationist?

    Oh wait, I keep on forgetting…a broken Nerf bat would be good enough to make them fall down whimpering and whining. I suppose that it might also be a bit too much for a young lady to be expected to pick up a creationist PYGMY + DWARF and use him to whack a fellow science blogger in order to prevent the breaking of valuable equipment like a centrifuge. Is PZ big enough?

    Centrifuges make wonderful weapons, especially for committing random acts of violence. After all, if you see someone carrying a centrifuge on the sidewalk, your first thought is going to be, “This person is about to commit some serious science.”, then they take you by surprise. Of course, the tights and mask might give the game away.
