That’s one way to do it.


1. Nate asleep in car, Steve: We’re here.
2. Nate wandering by, Bill’s speech swirls “Hey Nate! Glad you could make it, buddy! No prob on the lateness!”
3. Nate standing at shoreline
4. Nate falling face-first
5. Arne: Nate says the water’s fine, ladies! Hop in!

    Woot! Grabbed the brass ring!

  3. So, will he drown himself and have a spiritual quest in which he learns the meaning of life? Or will he spend the party half asleep and making an ass out of himself?

  4. Michelle says:

    Haha, “Kiss the Cock” xD

  5. FWATANG says:

    annnnnddddd he drowns. so who will pull his butt out of the water?

  6. Arseness says:

    Soooooo which girl is going to poke the Nate bear first?

    Tracy, Rose or Miranda?

    My vote is on Tracy

  7. Nick's Mom says:

    I am reminded of Benjamin Braddock’s immortal retreat into the pool in “The Graduate”. I’m just hoping Rose’s mother isn’t Mrs. Robinson.

  8. BunnyRemix says:

    Yeah, I solve all my problems like that too.

  9. Plasmo says:

    Ok??? What is he doing?

  10. RotSman says:

    I like the splash effect…

  11. Ginger says:

    As Calvin once put it, “That’s one of the remarkable things about life. It’s never so bad that it can’t get worse.”

  12. The Russian Comrade says:

    The Russian Comrade says, In Soviet Russia, the cock kiss you!

    • NotTheNegroGuy says:

      The Russian Comerade? First The Negro Guy and now this? I will not stand for it, You and the rest of the league will be destroyed!!! Just as soon as Negro Guy rears his do-gooder head.

      • The Negro Guy says:

        …The Negro Guy says hi…bitch.

        • NotTheNegroGuy says:

          The Negro Guy! I expected you would come. I bet you thought I’d stay behind bars after our last battle, but I’ve broken out and am back once again to take over the site! Try as you might, you will not defeat me this time, for I hold in my hand a secret weapon. The chink in your Negro armor. The Negro Guy’s one weakness!

          • [InsertStereotypehere] says:

            Gin, Juice, and Hot white strippers?

          • TheReindeerLady says:

            TNG! <3! Also, dude! Don't say 'chink'! That's racist…

            • TheReindeerLady says:

              (Yes, well aware of the contextual difference here. Just getting into the spirit of the villain baiting.)

              • The Dutch Devil says:

                The Dutch Devil(formerly known as illyria) supports the negro guy and russian comrade. to arms brothers.

                ready the sheep catapult! FIRE!!! eat kebabs notthenegroguy

                • NotTheNegroGuy says:

                  Foolish Dutch Devil! Your flying sheep have no effect on me, thanks to my Wool-proof sheild. You detestable do-gooders will all perish soon. For I have, without The Negro Guy’s knowledge, laced this delicious, crispy piece of fried chicken with Negronite! He won’t be able to resist the tasty aroma, and once he’s taken a bite, your Negro Guy will be no more! Mwahahahahahahahaha!

                  • The Dutch Devil says:

                    did you say chicken? i love chicken. “eats the chicken meant for TheNegroGuy” you see, as long as we are together your plans will fail.

      • NoNameInParticular says:

        No Name In Particular says my name is better than either of yours!

  13. MeeestaShane says:

    Thank you, Arne, for the promise of swimsuits to come.

    Except for Purvous.

  14. Better name than yours says:

    I think what nate is doing is the I’m tired, I need to wake the fuck up thing. By splashing face first into what I’d assume is semi cold water he should be wide awake for the party :P

    • Plasmo says:

      Oh that would make sense but I am curious as to why he went into the water and got all his clothes wet too.

      • Jeri says:

        He’s in that semi-awake, semi-asleep, all zombified mode. The Rationale and Logic parts of the brain are still warming up… followed in tow by the rest of the brain functions.

        • L-X says:

          i kinda ruined a lot of things in this state. when i go to sleep very late after a party i say to myself -okay as soon as you wake up next mornin just stand up drink two cups of coffee and just go to work …. yeah like that ever worked

          • Rask says:

            That’s because coffee doesn’t work on a hangover. Drinking water during the time you drink alcohol, when you get home, and in the morning will help far, far more.

            /the more you know

            • Curator says:

              And multi-vitamin the night be4, and again in the morning, your body uses a lot of minerals and vitamins to process alcohol…

  15. Zonder says:

    Awesome web comic

  16. lucy says:

    awww how cute hes trying to kill him self hahaha

  17. Bubbaclaw says:

    And Nate is down for the count!

  18. Tupor says:

    Purvous comes to the rescue.

  19. Ammyanto says:

    Kiss the cock. x’) Almost the same as in Will&Grace. I love it.

  20. Jeri says:

    If Nate is anything like me(which from our similarities, is pretty damn close) – this is what he/I would use to wake up in a situation like this.

    Wake me up with a glass of water? Lol don’t make me laugh, you’re going to need a whole lake…. oh look, there’s one! *sploosh* – Problem solved.

  21. Greenwood Goat says:

    …And so Nate drifted away, to begin a new life as a floating meal for scavengers. But we all know that Nate’s universe doesn’t work that way so:

    Mermaid: Smooooooochhh!

    Nate: Whuh?!

    Mermaid: Who says you can’t find drowned sailors in these parts?

    Nate: Sailors? Drowned?! Water?!? Air!!!!

    Mermaid: Easy there! You don’t have to come up for air. Not any more. And neither do I. See? (suck) (swallow) (slurp) (slurp) (slurp)

    Nate: Sigh. At least she’s legal. I think.

    PS: I know Nick isn’t going to go fantasy on us (dream sequences excepted). However I do reserve the right to hark back to this scenario every time Nate strays near to a waterway of some kind. >:=)>

  22. Mini0n says:

    “Kiss the cook” LOL Nice one.

  23. That guy says:

    Bill doesn’t seem the type to have an apron like that. also i bet drawing the water splashing was quite difficult.

  24. Sara E. says:

    I was looking at that apron, and thought ‘Well that’s a little out of character for Bill to wear’. Then it dawned on me that shenanigans were afoot. Now I’m wondering who’s responsible for defacing the apron, (my guess is that it’s Arne), and when will Bill notice.

  25. Black Mandango says:

    I wouldn’t kiss his cock even if I was getting a raise.

  26. That Jewish Dude says:

    Shouldn’t someone, Oh I don’t know… FUCKING SAVE NATE!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!


  27. SAL3000 says:

    This is amazing, I love this.

  28. BriGuy says:

    Horray for defaced aprons!

    I think Nate was dreaming about the episode of Star Trek: TNG “Genesis”, and thought he had turned into an amphibian. Wake up man! You don’t have gills!

  29. Andrew says:

    This reminds me of Ferris Bueller’s Day off where Cameron is in a daze and falls into the pool.

    …come to think of it, Nate’s recent attitude is similar to Cameron’s…
