#92 – Pornucopia (NSFW)

As I was drawing this, I kind of knew the random, spur-of-the-moment porn mag in this comic was going to get a much bigger reaction than the punchline. Jeph Jacques never said anything about it, but some of the QC forumites seemed to be shocked and offended on his behalf, and possibly left afflicted with Confused Boners.

Hannelore was an intentional choice because I knew how ironic it would be, but when I see her like this, looking back on this comic does kind of give me bad feelings in my heart. Luckily, she has a semi-canonical evil clone, so maybe I’m off the hook.

In the Treading Ground universe, there’s also a gay porn mag called Shitpacked! Just an FYI.

    I read QC daily, not offended at all. I actually thought it was funny. I think Jeph mentions rule 34 on his comic a couple times, so don’t worry about it. I’m pretty sure theres worse out there.

      rule 63 nd rule 34 are my favorite and least favorite parts of le interwebz
      ….fortunately, i’m a lurker and not a /b/-tard, so i don’t give a shit what 4chan and anon think of my use of internet memes

    At first I serious’d, but then I lawled!

  3. Tom NC says:

    I’m also a QC reader, and was curious to see if it was a coincidence with Hanners from QC. Got to your note and found out that wasn’t the case. I was not offended, I thought it was very funny. Jeph has played with Hanners and double entendre before. This was a little jump past that, but still very funny.

    • Nick says:

      I thought I had spelled it pretty blatantly with the whole “Questionable Cunt/Tit” thing. :-)

      • Tom NC says:

        I caught that on the second read-through today. Not sure how it escaped me the first time around.

        • cahoots says:

          Yeah, somehow I missed that too. While the “cunt/tit” didn’t click, I did see the “questionable” so I figured it was probably intentional, though (that and Hannelore isn’t exactly a common name). OTOH, if it was her psuedo-canonical clone, she’d almost definitely be in BDSM porn, not just looking semi-innocent with a dildo.

    Not Hannelore!!

  5. connor says:

    Hey, look! Something actually FUNNY without being offensive! You should focus more on that.

    • Jim says:

      I love that nudity, dick jokes, tit jokes, eating someone’s ass jokes, and the word cunt aren’t offensive to you, but you’re clearly one of those joyless shitbags that was mad about the comic portraying mild racism or a political opinion.

  7. McKavian says:

    I just started reading this comic (from the beginning) yesterday. I’ve been reading QC for over a year now.

    Ya know…I’d love to see more of the evil side of Hanners.

    The questions I have is of your comic is so offensive, why do these morons keep reading it?

  8. There is nothing confused about this boner.

  9. slightly_strange says:

    As a daily QC reader I opine: WIN!

  10. Jamie says:

    Bahaha! Can Hannelore HANDLE MORE? Brilliant.

  11. Sjcodan says:

    Son, I am proud.

  12. ~rooster~ says:

    i’ve seen much worse involving Hannelore. this was at least semi-tasteful and actually looked a lot more like her than most of them. I’m sure Tai would have loved to see it too.

  13. Jo says:

    That… was horrific. Well done.

  14. Ze says:

    I love QC, but didn’t see Hanners right away (reading this on my iPod touch). But then I saw a familiar face and title and zoomed in, and I must say, good play on words. ^^

  15. Pink Freud says:

    Love the title of this strip.

    For those who do not know, Pornucopia is the title of an adult novel written by sci-fi / fantasy author Piers Anthony. I have only seen an except from it in a magazine, But that chapter was about a man with a prosthetic penis. This was close to 20 years ago, but at the time I was full of “Snap-on tools” jokes.

  17. CCX says:

    I think I first started reading QC after Hanners’ guest appearance here. Definitely a good pick-up.

  18. Jordan Davenport says:

    Must have missed Jeph’s plug but the QC forums definitely had mixed reviews about this comic. Glad I found it eventually.

  19. A reader of Both says:

    Meh. While I enjoy your comic so far, I really have no appreciation of desperate namedropping (kinda devalues your own) and plagiarism (using a character form someone else without asking permission). I’m sure we all love That Guy who always tells that story of How I Totally Met Rob Stewart.

    This really makes you look like you direly need that plug, which is kinda sad because your comic is good enough to survive without this bullshit.

    Am I offended? Well, a little, because you pron-raped someone elses Character that is absolutely not the porn-doing type. You might want to keep in mind that the things you just take and present in that out-of-character way (and that is the actual offense, not the obscenity) ARE indeed valued by others, who you will, naturally, piss off by treating it with zero respect.

    Making fun of those who are pissed by your lack of respect is not going to prove your point, just going to make you look like an ass. Next time just man up and take the return instead of whining around how offended everyone is.

    read this webpage, and I used to pay a visit this webpage
