The Ones Who Knock

I've got to try that. I wonder if it works on other kinds of solicitors.

I'll admit, it gave me a chuckle. If I hadn't seen the episode a few hours post air, I'd likely do the same, were I a god fearing man.

You forgot to add in "Game of Thrones" spoilers.

Also I cannot imagine the endless rivers of tears that will spawn when the TV show ends.

It will be a feels-apocalypse.

I got a laugh to and am yet to watch any Breaking Bad. Yay, I'm going to have a great time avoiding spoilers when awbody else has seen and is discussing it!

I've known folks who purposely put 'Please give blood' stickers by their front doors to keep Jehovah's Witnesses at bay.

It'll only be good until next Monday. But at least by then you'll be able to put up the Trick or Treat signs.

Is it a bad sign that I've never heard of breaking bad?

Haha I got it. Now I feel smart. Also, it's funny. Also, I've never seen BB :/

Heh.

Mind you, apparently orb spiders work as well. In that my mum heard Mormons come up to the house, and decide not to continue, citing the spiders as a reason.

Truly, Satan dwells within that house.

Never heard of it at all? I'm not sure if "bad sign" is the right term. "Impressively oblivious", maybe. Where do you live?

Apparently they aren't the danger.

You failed your first test, religious evangelists.

USA, but deployed to Afghanistan.

Avoidant.

My housemate always invites them in, offers them tea, and explains neo-Celtic paganism to them.

It's fun to watch.

:)

Fun (/arbitrary) fact: I actually know a Jehovah's Witness named Paul.

Akisa:

Normally anyone would be forgiven, but in your case, with 386 posts on the Escapist... Yes, it is a problem.

I'm sure it is. Does your friend really believe in Celtic Neopaganism?

Brilliant! Though to be honest...

thaluikhain:

The concept of guard-spiders is both terrifying and ingenious. The house I grew up in used to have a similar defense...evidently there was a wasp nest somewhere in the wall right behind our doorbell...because every time someone rang it 3 or 4 of the angry buggers would fly out from a crack in the wall and harass whoever was standing on our porch.

Farther than stars:

I'm sure it is. Does your friend really believe in Celtic Neopaganism?

Yup! Started a local group/grove, has a household shrine, and everything.

A place with internet. He probably doesn't visit 9GAG. I live in South Africa and literally only heard about it on 9gag.

OT: LOVE Erin's "No, Mr.Bond, I expect you to play Superman 64" face

[insert religiously distressed bleating here]

That said, that sign wouldn't stop me I've already ruined the whole show for myself without seeing more than three pictures of it. :D

I do like Erin's expression, though.

Also, I'm disappointed by the lack of excellent tags.

I must say that the ending of Breaking Bad is nothing worth writing home about, and definitely not worth spoiling. Because basically

Shame such a good show had such a rushed final season and such a disappointing final episode.

We once turned up a game of Unreal Tournament 99 real loud when some Jehova's came a-knocking. The faces they made while hearing extremely loud cries of HEADSHOOOT and MULTI KIIILL were so damn worth it.

And a family friend of my partner's parents once told us he had some original Adolf Hitler speeches on old records in his record collection. I suggested he'd put those on when Jehova's would come by his door as they're rather rife in that area. There were enough laughs that I wouldn't be surprised if he'd actually try it.

It's funny, my folks and I have recently started watching Breaking Bad. We're about halfway through the second season at the moment and holy shit it's so good. How the hell did I miss this for so long??

...Are you sure you saw the finale? Cause he sure as hell did something with that machine gun.

OT: this one made me laugh, loved the face in the window.

Erin,my dear,you are genius. XD

Really? My step-dad says that if you open the door while naked, they turn a most lovely shade of red and tell the other's to avoid that house. Personally, I'd just draw a pentagram on my door to keep them at bay.

Furioso:

Wait, the last episode was this weekend, not the previous one?! So there's an episode 16?

...

Ahahahahaha... Better go watch it then. Still, at least my critique on the last season as a whole stands. It was so sadly rushed.

I found a pretty good technique to get door spammers to go away. I tell them I'm in the middle of doing chores but they can come in and talk while I do them, and they get totally excited.

Then when they get inside I start cleaning a gun and not paying attention to them at all.

Usually they let themselves out.

The end of Breaking Bad was good - but that alien invasion at the end was a bit out of left field.

You ever get SO lonely that... well come on in Jehovah's... let's have a chat!!

Great comic, I want to watch breaking Bad but it's so many seasons already and where would I find the time?

I almost wish they'd visit sometimes. I am ever so lonely.

Although I doubt they will. Not after last year, when they held a bit of a Mormon get-together in town. On May Day. They looked rather frightened.

Remember, if spoilers and all else fails, Culture Clash.

"Paul..? I won't lie. I'm scared now."

Hahaha- I must admit, that's a very clever comic you did. Even some people have limitations, and it may confuse us as to what it is but I know I have them. I remember a time when I would go through the horror house with ease while even my ex being a horror fanatic would be startled here and there (she was brave too).

Oddly, I can't stand spiders even if they're not that big on the wall XD

So yeah this comic was very funny.

Be glad I'm not the door-to-door type, for I do not have the slightest interest in that show. Actually, I'm glad it's done because people will (hopefully) shut up about it soon.

Wouldn't work on me. I don't watch TV and don't give a shit about anything on it.

you're step-dad's right. they won't even leave me a copy of the watchtower anymore

That face in the window... Im not entirely sure what to think of it...

Seems like a creative way to get rid of soliciters though, kinda like trying to sell something back to telemarketers.

My favorite part was Walt taking Jesse to the petting zoo and telling him, "You are really my son, that's why I'm so hard on you."

It was a nice moment right before the Aliens destroyed the meth lab. But it does make me think that Walt knew the aliens were coming.
