Make yourself a cup of tea or coffee because we have prepared a delicious dessert for you. Scott Hilburn is back on Bored Panda!

Scott is a cartoonist who was born "on top of an arctic glacier", exposed to "high levels of intense radiation", and made his way to becoming a well-known artist. He creates a funny comic series called 'The Argyle Sweater' filled with absurd situations and silly humor. Why 'The Argyle Sweater', you may ask? Well, because "'The Argyle Cummerbund' was taken and 'The Argyle Girdle' just sounded plain silly."

Scroll down and enjoy these amusing single-panel comics! If, at the end, you still have some tea left, check out the previous post here!

Scott can be considered an old wolf in the comic world. His work is found in such giants as LA Times, NY Daily News, Chicago Tribune, Washington Post, Dallas Morning News, and more! People seem to enjoy Scott's edgier and darker humor, that's why he's so popular.

In one of his interviews, the artist revealed that he gets ideas for his comics from pop culture, historical references or "presenting animals or fairy tale characters with human settings and real-life experiences". Some of his ideas come from something he has overheard his kids say or do, but not as many.

Perkins has a perpetual lightbulb moment, which is misleading as he's actually quite dim. Sorry, I'll show myself out.

Scott shared that Larson was one of his biggest influences. Besides that, he also read New Yorker cartoonists like Sam Gross and Tom Cheney. "I was always impressed at how a single panel cartoonist could say so much in just one frame – especially when the humor is inferred and required some thought on the part of the reader. That 'A-HA!' moment is something I try to create in my own cartoons."

My favorite. Robert Smith always had his high tops untied so that may be a problem.

Just a reminder that a down vote isn't a dislike. It literally can get people banned.
