#108 – Save The Date

Steve clearly has friends in the printing industry.


108 – Save The Date

Steve: Attention, please!

Steve: In honor of our birthday girl, I’d like to present this gift.

Steve: Here.
Nate: What?
Steve: Just open it. It’s for the both of you.

[Nate holds a day calendar reading:

March 13
Days Until Nate Can Legally Tap That Ass]

    That’s pretty much the best birthday gift ever. =D

    I’m thinking staring at that calendar day after day would cause some blue balls.

    At least he’s being thoughtful.

    See the trouble is with a girl like that. She is an old soul after a fashion. He connects with her on an emotional level and through mutual interest. Movies and the like. He is like a more handsome Dante Hicks. I get that vibe when I read that. She is that sweet person who he knows is right but the age thing is a serious issue. That and she is fucking smoking hot! There my moment of addressing the elephant in the room concerning her. I love this webcomic.

        Much obliged. I love the web comic and it’s nice to read something where the straight guy in the story is not the butt of every joke like my wife’s favorite webcomic Menage A 3.

        • Mravac Kid says:

          Except that Nate really is a normal guy, while Gary from MA3 is an ultra-shy otaku, living with two ultra-hot, ultra-outgoing female roommates… there’s no avoiding jokes in there.

          If Nate were rooming with Didi and Zee, he’d die from sex-induced exhaustion within a week. :p

          • Jonathan says:

            Okay now that I will agree with. Not to go into a huge amoung about MA3 on this webcomic but Nate is not a wuss or shy like Gary. So he would have no trouble nailing them both. I suppose my gripe is that it’s very infuriating seeing the only straight guy constantly be fodder for the jokes. Everyone in the comic getting laid but him. And in this one you just want to scream….oh just fucking fuck her already dude! hehehe. However that is the intention I would hazard a guess.

    “365 days til Nate can legally tap that ass” That made my day XD

    This has to be Wisconsin or California, as reading the ol’ age of consent thing on Wikipedia suggests those are the only states with an age of consent of 18 that will really throw the book at you for slipping a length to someone less than that age (most other jurisdictions allow it so long as the age gap isn’t huge, which in this case it isn’t)

    That said, perhaps Rose just needs to find the right music to get Nate in the mood? He had no problem breaking the law when he heard 80s music and start driving like it was GTA. ;)

    • jack says:

      remember hes over 21

      • metalangel says:

        Is he? I thought Rose had worked out his age at 20 or 21.

        If that’s the case, many of those states consider that within the allowable ‘gap’ to do someone below the age of consent.

        And if he’s over 21, why was he so afraid of going to the liquor store? He coulda just gone on his own and bought as much as he wanted and it’s nobody’s business but his own then, sort of like it’s nobody’s business that she jumps onto his wang. She’s not gonna complain, he’s not, what’s the big deal?

        • Tyciol says:

          Most likely because he had underage friends waiting for him and helping him take the booze home, one of them being a minor in high school.

    You guy should know by now Steve’s intent was to cause Nate a year of blue balls, right? There is no depth to his bastarditude. While the calender is funny, it reminds Nate that this hot girl wants him and he can’t touch for another year. It also reminds him of what happens if he gives in to the temptation: jail and potential assrape. I also think it is Steve’s ever so thoughtful, yet totally cruel way of rooting for those two. ^_^
