That’s progress.


Jimi: Sup, Steve. Haven’t seen you since that day at Sky High.
Steve: Yeah, I don’t know. Kinda unsure what to do about this whole thing with me and Beth.
Jimi: How so?

Steve: Age difference aside, I just don’t want to feel like I’m taking advantage of a drunk. That would push my current “asshole” status well into “shithead” territory.

Jimi: I don’t know why you hesitate. We’ve seen her when she’s sober – she doesn’t regret a thing about being with you. Encourages it, even.
Jimi: And that’s aside from the obvious PHYSICAL attributes.

Steve: You almost sound like YOU want to give her a go.
Jimi: Nah, I’m straight. Nina’s like my special project.
Jimi: You should see her. She can use a knife and fork now!

    Hold the phone! Rose’s sister couldn’t use a knife and fork??

  5. Dr. wonderful says:

    Naah. Call me when you teach her how to use a napkin properly and that her shirt dosen’t need to be used to blow her nose or wipe her face…

  6. Why is it when I heard about her being able to use utensils, I immediately thought “With her jag”?

  7. Gavin says:

    Great attributes: She has great hair.

  8. Mike says:

    All Jimi has to do now is teach her to talk properly and play the bassoon and she’ll be more attractive than Rose :)

  9. Minty says:

    Heh, a guy trying to fix a girl. Don’t see that every day. I applaud you good sir. Let us all dedicate our time to transforming the whores of today into the respectable, but sexually open women of tomorrow.

    only one thing to say: TITS

  11. One Manic Ninja says:

    where, oh where, have steve’s nipples gone? oh where, oh where can they beeeeeeeeeee

  12. Thatoneguy says:

    I thought Nina was a college student? By the way how old is Nina’s and Rose’s mother? Older than 36 I imagine. Also, how old is Steve?

    Also, nice to see Steve with out a pony tail. But I am really curious about how old Rose’s Mom (does she even have a name?) is.

  13. Bill M. says:

    Yes, she has a name, it’s Beth. Even if you missed it in today’s comic that you commented on, it’s there on the Cast Page as well.

  14. Los says:

    I have yet to get past “negrophile”, hahahahaha

  15. Jyrki says:

    Calling it now. MALF = a mother Arne would luv to f&ยค%

  16. Omar says:

    is it me or Jimi has sunscreen on? great comic, greetings from Mexico.

  17. TheWheelchairWonder says:

    Is it just me or do Beth and Steve have almost the same exact hairstyle now with Steve’s hair down?

  18. aslum says:

    Why no nipples on the guys? That seems kinda weird…

  19. Steve says:

    now till Wednesday

  20. Greenwood Goat says:

    Awww, it’s a trailer trash version of My Fair Lady.

    – “Now, remember to curl your pinkie round as you grip the handle, then raise and DOWN IN ONE! CHUG! CHUG! CHUG! CHUG! YEAAAAHHH!!

    I wonder if Nina says “How kind of you to let me cum” when Jimi gets her off? >:=)>

    As for Steve and Beth, that would be a trailer trash version of, er, The Didn’t Graduate (tag line: “This is Steve. He’s not a bit worried about his lack of a future”).

    Steve: So old Nina Crowley got started in a Ford.
    Beth: Yup. And I got started in a VW Camper. You?
    Steve: Back of a jeep. We think. How about Rose?
    Beth: Bed, in the apartment. But she’s still family.
    Steve: Heh, well Nate got started in the back room of a Zippy Mart…
    Beth: ‘Splains everything. Fuck some more?

  21. Jerichow says:

    I’m with Jimmy 110% on this one too, especially with pannel 3 going on? Milf material, anyone? Gotta admit, Steve is being a little off on this one, he should take Jimmy’s advice on this one and just roll with it, the guy is obviously a demi-god at these things.

  22. Darrell says:

    Awesome Steve and I have the exact same hair… same length even… WIN

  23. Ginger says:

    It’s actually sort of interesting to see characters like Jimmy and Steve dealing with their “relationship” issues in a way more straightforward manner than Nate, especially since Nina and Beth are each way more of a handful than Rose. It’s just more evidence that Nate’s hang-ups are less about Rose and more about himself.

  24. Scuba Steve says:

    Nice detail on Beth’s Camel Toe.

  25. Morris says:

    I don’t know why I find it extremely hilarious that Nate is “training” Nina to become a “normal” person. Hahahaa.

  26. BunnyRemix says:

    She is a grade-A milf. Why must all the girls I lust after be fictional?

    Sister: Because you’re a nerd?

    Me: Oh, yeah…

    • chumash99 says:

      *Sigh* I’m right there with ya, buddy. Except that I don’t share my taste in webcomics/fictional MILFs with my sister. ;)

  27. shizuka says:

    Steve is wearing Akuma’s necklace… Just saying…

  28. Lanny says:

    This comic is made of fucking gold.

  29. somewierdguy says:

    What confuses me about this is in panel 4 when jimi says “nah. I’m straight”

    Is this slang I’m unfamiliar with or is she just really really good at hiding stuff (considering the daughters)

    • Minty says:

      It’s a black guy thing. Not to be racist, but I literally have been around both black folks and white folks my entire life and we’re the only one’s who say that. It basically means, “No thanks, I’m fine.” Although, I did hear an asian use it… once…

  30. Boomer Gonzales says:

    Is it just me, or are Beth’s breasts glistening?

  31. foxdeblood says:


  32. Stephen says:

    can’t look away….

  33. Firedood says:

    The first time I started reading this strip, I saw this
    on the way to number 1. I thought “Is that black guy fucking a handicapped person?!”

    Now it makes sense

  34. Sara E. says:

    Wait a minute, is Steve showing *gasp* some kind of humanity, here? I am shocked and appalled.
