Wow, it would be weird making out with all those toys looking at you, I would feel dirty,
that’s totally where I thought he was going with this one
thirded saw a whole blair witch thing happening
I think I’d get turned on having all of those toys watching.
Rainbow Dash av makes everything better. …Actually, most of Willis’ av’s make the comments roughly 21% cooler. (Although it could be anywhere from 9% to 33%; I lack sufficient data.)
Remember that Amber turns them around whenever she has sex with Mike. By now, every toy in the house likely is facing a wall.
Also, @David: is there any way you could add a cookie so that I don’t have to type the captcha each time? It gets annoying.
It is my understanding that there is a cookie, or at least the Captcha should only be an issue if this is your first time. Y’know, like the hymen.
Sometimes, the hymen needs a few tries before it tears all the way.
(And I’m clearly doing it in the wrong hole every day — I’ve never not had the captcha.)
Still have the Captcha, and I’ve commented quite a bit. No clue why. Newest FF on Windows 7. I haven’t even closed the internet since my last comment.
I get the captcha every time, too. And the cookie’s there, it has my name and email fro the gravatar, so it ain’t the cookie.
Adding another voice to this…I never said anything before, because I assumed that was the way it was intended to work (even if it’s a little annoying, it’s better than spambots), but if it’s supposed to go away, then something’s not set right.
You do know the hymen’s a myth, right? Look it up =)
Hymen, clitoris, foreplay, so many myths…
“The clit’s real! It’s the female orgasm. THAT’S the myth!”
Riiiight. Like that mysterious “G-spot” thing everyone talks about.
Getting all your information from the interwebs is inadvisable. Someday, you should ask a real girl. Just a thought.
Speaking of myths … do girls really exist?
awww, I think we know where this is going. :/
Annnd this is the part where the relationship goes south. Isn’t it Willis >_>
B-but, I like Ethan being happy. It makes ME happy and hopeful I’ll find a Drew of my own!
uh oh! UH OH!
please find it interesting please find it interesting
Ut oh, Ethan. You may stumbled across a “Deal Breaker” with this guy.
I like how Ace the Bat-Hound is just kinda sitting there on the TV.
Man, I want more than seven Riddlers. That guy is awesome.
Whuh oh. This is either going to head south at the speed of light, or Drew is going to be so dazzled by Ethan’s toy-collecting prowess, they’ll be doing it out in the open next strip,
Touch of Grey? More like Touch of Gay am I right hahahaha
Pff, I’m an awesome Grateful Dead song, you’re a killer of plants. Or a spreader of gloom, depending on your interpretation. So suuuuck it.
/please/ let it be the second of those!! I want Ethan to be happy!!! Please? Please can at least one relationship here be happy?
TROUBLE AHEAD TURN BACK TURN BACK
Honestly, if Drew was surprised by this, he’s not as smart as I initially gave him credit for. Ethan admits to being a geek/nerd and works at a Toy store. I’d have been more shocked if he ONLY had seven toys.
Although I do agree that all those toys looking at me have sex with my boyfriend, with their dead empty eyes, would be pretty freaky.
Not 7, but before I started reading this comic, an adult admitting to having “a lot” of toys would mean, ohhh, full lineup for one of the seasons of transformers, 10 Batman allies/villains, and a few others. And probably not all set out on display, looking at me. This room has more than that, and heavily implies that other rooms are similar.
This is why most of the toys were hidden until I knew Paul a while.
There needs to be some big gay humpin’ involved soon. The boy gon’ a-splode, he don’t get some sump’n sump’n soon.
I currently have a Transformer on top of my television (Ransack, in the good colors, staring up at a kokeshi doll like he’s genuinely impressed with its combat potential and about to propose a courtship), but it’s one-a them thar old fashioned tubular moving picture devices, so there’s room for an entire themed display on top of it. I think Ethan has aptly demonstrated why old twen-cen CRT televisions are inherently superior to your highfalutin’ “flat screen display” type telemavisions: more room for artfully arranged toys.
If they break up I’ll be very very sad.
Pah, having a flat full of toys never scared any guys outta my place. It was a conversation starter though you had to be careful to steer the conversation away from being a housridden nerd. Not living with parents helped.
Sooo… why’d he turn the light on, again?
Just fumble for the bed in the dark, dude…
But then he’d knock over a shelf!
Toys are like guardian sentinels protecting the chastity of their owners. Or at least, they are when displayed in the same place the dirty deed is done…
Not gonna lie – I am probably going to cry if this doesn’t work out for Ethan. I know he tends to sabotage it himself, but the man deserves some happiness that isn’t plastic.
Gosh, Drew. If you’re going to suggest bonking on the Second-or-Third date, maybe you shouldn’t freak out over seeing a lot of plastic. It’s not really nice to be all, “I barely know you, let’s have sex.” and then thirty seconds later, “I’ve gotten to know you slightly better and I’m no longer interested.” Boo-urns.
I’m hoping this is just initial shock on Drew’s part and that he’ll get over it quickly.
I mean, even if you don’t think there’s something wrong with toy collecting, it would be surprising to walk into a room full of plastic when you don’t expect it.
I love how proud Ethan looks in the bottom left panel.
Willis, this had better be a temporary setback. Willis? WILLIS?!
The toys aren’t going to freak Drew out, relax. Now, the Roadblock poster staring at him afterwards? Yeah, that might be the deal breaker.
Just had to comment! Ethan is finally HAPPY…. it would only be the saddest thing ever if the toys ruined it for him…
I didn’t believe that “Ace the Bathound” figures were a real thing.
I had to look that up on Amazon.
NEVER DOUBT THE EXISTENCE OF ACE THE BAT HOUND!!!
I’ll have you know Ace the Bat-Hound was also a wasp, a rat, a samurai dinosaur, and a… wolf-bird sort of thing in a past life, so he deserves his place of honor on top of the TV.
I’m having a premonition here about the first time I bring someone into MY room; I’ve never really thought about having so many EYES upon you while you’re lying there sleeping, reading, etc.
Of course, I’m not sure if it’ll be the eyes themselves, or the fact that I have so many things with eyes to begin with…just as I’m unsure which is happening in today’s comic.
Now, on to chewing my nails until tomorrow! *L*
uh oh… i dont like his little surprised look…. please say this isnt going to go south… it seems to be the only NORMAL functional thing going on in this comic…
him happy makes EVERYONE happy.
…I hope I’m not the only one who spent time trying to spot all the tagged figures.
Hrm. The force is weak here. No one’s tried to guess all the toys on the shelves? FOR SHAME, NERDS! FOR SHAME!
TF shelf is easy. Primus, Nexus Maximus/Prime, Vector Prime and his Minicon, Logos Prime & his Minicon.
Below is a Cobra HISS tank. I don’t know enough about Joes to know what figures are likely displayed around them. (pimp daddy Destro from SDCC, and the 3 lady troopers from the Joe convention set? or am I just projecting my desires?)
Next panel… mostly easy. Clayface, Batman, Riddler. I’m guessing Two-face (due to the split-shading), possibly Joker?, and of course Clock King. Sorry, don’t know enough details to guess which variant of Batman that is and get bonus points. :>
I figgered nobody’s tried to guess because they’re all indicated quite clearly in the strip’s tags.
Awww! Aw-awwww! No! Why am I covered in poo?
This is what happens when you stay awake for 24 hours.
I’d have to say it’s Drew’s involuntary eye twitch in the last panel that makes me most concerned about his future with Ethan. That isn’t a happy twitch…
Maybe Drew’s just jealous of Ethan’s collection.
This, Ethan, is why you do your own singles ads, instead of letting someone who consistently uses the word ‘banging’ to describe the entire relationship you’re going to have with the guy do it for you.
Oh oh no.. no, Drew, don’t make that face.. nooo!
No one can be happy in Shortpacked, not Leslie, not Amber, not Ethan… no one.. It’s Walky crew, you are the destroyer of worlds!
Dave! I saw this and thought of you:
Mark Millar is looking for humorous, one page comic submissions for some new project he’s putting together!
Except Mark Millar doesn’t have a sense of humor, just a sense of cruelty.
To me, the Batman figs look like Ventriloquist, Joker, Batman, Ras al Ghul, Riddler, Clayface.
I’m hoping that Drew (or Ethan) proposes an alternative…. they just go back to his place. Drew can then get used to the idea at his own pace without the toys being there freaking him out.
You know, when a person tells me that they have a lot of toys, I think twenty, at least.
Ace is straddling the television. That is deeply disturbing on so many levels.
And so it begins…
