It’s comic number 1-8-7! Sorry, no references to murder or undercover cops.

Transcript

Rose: Seriously?
Aya: Yeah. I try to do the right thing and help you, but things inevitably go all haywire. I’ve been doing it for years. I’m surprised you still listen to me.

Aya: Hey Rose, let’s head out to the waterfront! What happens? Wet T-Shirt contest. Hey Rose, you should try being all sexy with Nate! Rejected. And then this junk with Trevor…

Rose: …was totally my fault. I was thinking with my CLIT and didn’t even consider how you might feel about me banging your brother.

Aya: It wasn’t Trevor I was worried about. It was YOU.

    “Thinking with my clit” First time I’ve heard that one. Chicks should say it more often.

  2. BunnyRemix says:

    “I was afraid you’d catch his stupid!”

    XD Sorry, my MST3K impulse kicked in. It does that.

  3. One Manic Ninja says:

    thinking with your CLIT? I’ve never heard that one before. I don’t even think it’s a true parallel to thinking with your cock.

  4. RotSman says:

    It’s possible that Rose has a sex addiction…

  5. The Negro Guy says:

    The Negro Guy always wondered how Aya’s brother was in the sack.

  6. KWilt says:

    Definitely gotta remember that one…

    • The Negro Guy says:

      The Negro Guy wonders what people would say during pillow talk if they could?

      • model S says:

        model S knows what model S say at orgasm.

        “MEGAMERGE! MODEL S ON THE SCENE!!”

        … the third person thing doesn’t work with model S’ name. model S is saddened by this.

  7. noname says:

    Is it just me, or does anyone get a feeling that an STD bombshell is about to be dropped here.

    Also, first time commenting, love the comic

    • The Negro Guy says:

      The Negro Guy gets the feeling.

      • Pink Freud says:

        Like I said Monday, Aya is a lesbian…. or at the very least, more into Rose then she is into guys.

        • The Negro Guy says:

          The Negro Guy Doesn’t believe she’s lesbian, just that she spends most of her time dealing with Rose’s problems. She doesn’t make time for herself because she feels like she has to be their for Rose.

          • Comichero says:

            I do believe you are quite possabliy one of the most enlightened people I have run across in my many years on this earth TNG, you are subtly informitive yet enigmaticly entertaining at the same time, and I most heartily agree with your assesment of Aya while she maybe Bi curious I feel she suffers heavily from a form of samaritan syndrome as she feels she must help any of her firends who art in some sort of bad situation as she herself just stated

            • The Negro Guy says:

              The Negro Guy says years of loneliness will do that to a person.

            • The Negro Guy says:

              Also thank you. Sorry about the partially depressing comment. Life is kinda shoving it’s foot up my ass at the moment.

              • Oberon says:

                “Its”
                Yes, I had to. :)

      • noname says:

        Wow. First time anyone on the internet has ever agreed with me on this kind of thing.

    • noname says:

      I just get the feeling that Aya is going to say something along the lines of “You know his mom had HIV right?”

  8. Kramegame says:

    Aya’s expressions are very well drawn, they match her speech perfectly…
    which is a nice change of pace from some other comics i’ve been reading…

  9. mc_gregor says:

    “I was thinking with my clit” Good one, never heard it before XD

  10. Miamistax says:

    “Thinking with my clit” – obvious title of spinoff webstrip

  11. Ginger says:

    In my experience, the warm fuzzies you feel when you realize you’ve got a truly good friend are quickly crushed when you start wondering why aforementioned loyal friend ever bothered with someone like you to begin with.

    • Dr. wonderful says:

      Because said, loyal friend knows that you will turn around and see things their way.

      • The Negro Guy says:

        The Negro Guy says not always. Some friends just will not get it until it’s to late. And then once shit hits the fan, and she’s/he’s got cum leaking out of hers/his ass, they come running to you to help; and all you can tell them was I gave you advice, I tried to tell you, Or the world favorite, I told you so.

  12. BriGuy says:

    Wet…t-shirt…?

    I am intrigued.

  13. Matthias Moser says:

    Hello from Germany. I really like this Comic so I thaught about some things I could say. After all this Song “Tool” expresses my opinion the best:

  14. boom says:

    meh, thinking with her dick is a perfectly viable expression for a chick, as well as having balls or a “girl-boner”.

    • The Negro Guy says:

      The Negro Guy thinks that a girl boner would reach to the clouds, then you could climb it like it was a magical bean plant.

  15. Grizz says:

    The Grizz thinks another wonderful band name/t shirt is born “Thinking with my cl*t”

    Or something

    BTW, Grizz thinks the Negro Guy is the funniest commenter here–you go, man

    • The Negro Guy says:

      The Negro Guy says thank you. Also, The Negro Guy thinks the picture for the shirt should be a giant clitoris monster from japan that fires pleasure lasers of death!

      • The Negro Guy says:

        Cuz’ all the weirdest shit comes from japan, says The Negro Guy.

        • Oberon says:

          All the weirdest shit comes from Japan, or The Negro Guy…

          Did you ever notice that the word “weird” is a weird break from the rule of “i before e, except after c”?

  16. EmanRuoy says:

    Small disconnect in the dialogue: Rose is apologizing for not considering Aya’s feelings, regarding the Trevor situation. And Aya says
    “It wasn’t Trevor I was worried about.”
    Should really have been
    “It wasn’t ME I was worried about.”
    That, or have Rose apologize for not considering Trevor’s feelings.
    But come on: not caring about Trevor should be a given, not accidental.

    • Nick Wright says:

      Yeah, this is a little less clear than I wanted it to be, but it gets explained in subsequent strips.

      What I can tell you is that Rose’s implication is that Aya might not appreciate her banging her brother (rather than banging a generic non-Aya’s-brother person.) Aya’s pointing out that the brotherliness is not the defining factor Rose thinks it is.

      I also always have to find a balance between perfect dialogue and things people would actually say. It might not wrap things up in the most efficient way, but it at least sounds natural.

      • PsychoKat says:

        Don’t worry. I got it. Probably mostly because I’ve used this one before (though I don’t have issues with my whorish friends banging my siblings).

  17. MJSox says:

    I can’t stand these fools taking my bro’s schtick, yall betta back off , yo!

  18. Grizz says:

    Grizz says imitation is the sincerest form of….imitation. or not
