Thanks for solving mystery one for me: so L is for Loser.

I assume 'too soon' refers to making painfull jokes to someone you just fired. As if Ted would be able to laugh about it if PHB had waited a month with calling him a loser.

And Ted: by all means do burn the bridge, and look ahead.

I too have not been able to get PHB's statement in the last frame.

May be after calling Ted a loser on his face, he feels remorse or, maybe, he feels regret at not having had the pleasure of doing it behind his back?

@zosete PHB does come across as cruel in this strip - calling someone a loser rudely on his face when he comes in for reference isn't an act of kindness.

I feel a bit silly, but I don't get PHB last reply. Too soon??

Also, lately the boss has evolved from cruel/clueless to a more sophisticated leader. This is a weird case of PHB pwning, a-la Wally.
