Pitchforks and Torches

Pitchforks and Torches

I believe the scientific term for this type of event is purvous interruptus.


Aya: Look, we’ve been hanging out at Borders every Saturday morning for a few weeks now. Why not drop by sometime?
Nate: Okay. I’ll think about it.


Nate: What’s wrong, Purvous? Is it the new guy?

Purvous: HE A DRACULA. (holding two item separator bars in the shape of a cross.)

    HAHAHAHA!!!! Oh, my sides!!! Seriously, I laughed so hard at Purvous I think I gave myself a hernia. Oh, god!

    I proclaim that this is the funniest strip involving Purvous EVER. Thank you!

    (of course the one with him and Rose was pretty epic too…)

    I like how purvous is holding two place before order signs. Also I kinda love detail so I’m just checking if it’s on purpose that purvous has a employee tag but Nate doesn’t? Sorry if I’m being to pedantic. Also LOVE the fact purvous is back from ‘the home’ *shudder*

    I like Aya. She seems to be the one in usual friend group dynamics known as the “level headed one”. I can dig.

    I’m not sure if this has been answered before, but what state is this happening in? Because in a majority of the states, age of consent is 16 or 17. There’s only 12 states where 18 is the AOC.

  12. Ominous says:

    I remember hearing somewhere that in North Carolina there can be a 4 year difference in a couples age for legality when one is under 18

    I hear the same voice as

  14. Elkian says:
