Everybody else has had more sex than me! D=
Does anyone else get that feeling?
Yeah, I also feel everyone has had more sex than him.
+1 for you and Jen Aside for the TISM reference.
I sometimes get the feeling I have too much sex. Hope I don’t over stretch any vaginas.
Fictional losers often complain that they are never getting much action; even if said losers still date and have sex wat more than 99% of the real life population.
Put it this way, PAZ has seem more action than I have; now that’s scary.
>_< I meant Faz not Paz.
Now I’m picturing a Faz Pez dispenser.
I never want to eat Pez again.
Now I’m picturing a Robin Pez dispenser and OMG WANT
If there is enough demand and if the company Willis gets his dolls and other merch from makes that sort of thing, then your wish may come true.
I for one wouldn’t mind a Fez-head stressball.
Faz punching bag!
O M G – WANT
short packed PEZ cast set MIB
Now I desperately want a Robin Pez dispenser!
Hmm, there could be a whole line of products like that, stuff the characters would actually use if they weren’t, like… characters who don’t know they’re in a comic.
You could have… Mike shotglasses, with his happy drunk face on one side and his sober sober face on the other, and a nickel in the base.
And, um…. a no-tie bowtie with Jason’s face on the knot. A Walky Nachitos crisp bag clip. Ultra-Car rollerskates or blades. Or hell, Ultra-Car pies with his face on the top! Though that wouldn’t ship well.
Okay, now I want to throw a Walkyverse party and have everyone come in costume. I’m off to convert people to webcomic reading!!
I wish collecting toys made for getting laid.
Hell, it’s a fetish out there. I KNOW it is!
IIRC Real Dolls are toys made for getting laid or at least a substitute for the real thing.
I’ve seen those. Not interested, and if I were, they’re expensive as all get out.
But did you lose interest before or after you looked up the price?
Before. Totally before.
Yay for sex!!
At least he’s got his priorities in order!
Poor Ethan! He needs a boyfriend who supports his toy collecting. =( I wouldn’t like it if I had a lady who wasn’t okay with my ponies.
I’d never date a girl who couldn’t put up with my stuffed animal hoarding. THEY’RE MINE. :C
Ponies? Stuffed Animals?
you guys some kinda queers or something? (i can say that because i am gay)
Then again, i couldn’t really be with a guy who hated video games, they are kind of my life
You got a problem with Ponies? Friendship is Magic has a high male audience.
I’m sure some of those males are sober.
That or go on 4Chan/FunnyJunk. Ponies everywhere, from what I hear it has a good plot.
I think that’s the last thing Ethan needs. Ethan’s love of toys can be considered rather scary. I mean, he put off close friends, dating and even discovering his own sexual identity for 20 some years because of his obsession with toys. He collects from every genre, and its at times gotten to where his obsession has been implied to have overtake not just his own living space, but the living space of his roommates.
I think what he needs to learn how to enjoy his toys hobby, but also help him learn to moderate and control it to where it doesn’t consume him and push other people away. Which we’ve seen him do before.
A fictional toy collector who’s gay is getting more than me.
At this point I should be depressed, but it’s not worth the effort.
Reminds me of what a friend said in high school ‘ life sucks, your girlfriend won’t and then you die’.
I think gay guys in general get more sex than the straight population. Ethan’s quite the exception.
I fucking wish. We are just as prone to being left out to dry as the straight folk.
That may be because you avoid the iffier side of the gay scene. Anyone of any gender can score some IF they are willing to sink to the lowest possible standards.
This is by no means limited to the gay population. I’m straight and I’m positive I could have sex today if I wanted to. I just don’t think I could have sex with anyone I’d actually want to have sex with.
Although, if I could find someone both willing and attractive, the fact that they’d boink a complete stranger is a pretty good argument for not having sex with them anyway.
Exactly – it’s not about sexual orientation, it’s about standards. Sometimes the only way to have sex is to completely abandon your standards, which you’d have to be pretty desperate to consider doing.
I can attest to the effectiveness of this. I’ve dropped my standards a couple of times to someone just interested in wang, and it’s panned out. And then I had to tell them to leave when the sex haze wore off and I remembered how single-minded they were.
Mike really looks like he’s hating that Pepsi there.
Cuz they gave him Coke. And Mike being evil prefers Pepsi.
Fact: Pepsi is better than Coke
This is not negotiable.
On Htrae, maybe . . .
Does Htrae have an opposite day? Because that’s the only time bizarro pepsi could possibly be better than bizarro coke.
Sure, if you like sugar water filtered through dirt.
they both suck =P
Everyone has to have their priorities.
X got more sex then me is going to be the new Walkyverse meme, isn’t it
Isn’t that already a meme?
I wish the toys didn’t bother Drew, since they mean so much to Ethan…alas, I think Ethan will be stuck in a constant cycle of putting it in storage.
Yes, that’s what he said is happening in the last panel.
Putting it in storage: best new euphemism.
I just want to see Mike’s face in that last panel. I can’t decide if it would be his usual expression, almost-indetectable-amusement, or very exaggerated fake-gagging/vomiting face.
Have we ever seen Drew’s place? I can’t seem to recall that. Also, they’re still living with Leslie at the house, right? Or is Ethan living on his own again? I’m kinda lost heh …
Everything is made better by man-on-man buttsecks.
Mmmm … man on man buttsecks. I’ll be in my bunk. With Mike. For a nickle.
Mike gets more sex than me.
For a nickel.
So many moms, so little time.
This bed is on fire, with passionate love.
My boyfriend complains, about the robots above…
All’s well that end well… specially if this means orgams
Yeah… As a gay guy with (unfortunately) ten years experience with relationships (although, that said, woohoo to three year relationship!) Drew isn’t making compromise, and Ethan’s about to enter doormat status.
You should never have to hide a side of yourself from someone you love. I don’t and haven’t. It’s hard to say which of us enjoys the lightsabres, Macross transformers, or gaming consoles more.
Depends on if Batman/Riddler cosplay counts as compromise or not.
I know my girlfriend certainly impacted my nerd hobbies a bit, but it was mainly because I spent more time with her than doing one player things (like video games or reading).
Ethan is certainly compromising a bit, but you could argue that he’s also mellowed out a lot because he has someone more important to him than his hobby now. I haven’t seen him get in a super fight with a customer or spawn camp the Transformers wiki in a bit. He’s also willing to buy things online now, rather than driving absurd amounts on maybe options.
You’re forgetting the most important bit, Kurai; this is Shortpacked. Drama WILL happen.
It sounds like he’s fine with the hobby, just not when it gets out of hand and consumes the room. That’s almost the definition of compromise.
I’ll admit there were some alarm bells going off when I first read it, but then I thought it through. Ethan keeps enough in storage that his room is presentable. He doesn’t hide anything from Drew.
Plus, I’d have to read through the archives but I’m pretty sure the storage practice predates drew. People were getting fed up with his collection consuming the house. He just keeps a bit more in than he would have chosen to independently.
Well, there’s compromising and then there is comfort. Drew is okay with the idea that Ethan likes toys. But Ethan’s love of toys can be considered rather unhealthy. I mean, he put off even HAVING a relationship with anyone, or even acknowledging his own sexuality for years, due to the fact his obsession with toys consumed his life. Nearly every facet of Ethan’s life revolves around toys except for Drew. And not just one form of toys like only collecting Batman toys. Ethan collects ALL genres: Batman, JLU, Ghostbusters, He-Man, Star Wars, Star Trek, G.I. Joe, etc… That’s hundreds upon hundreds of toys he own.
I don’t blame Drew for being unsettled by that. But despite everything, Drew accepts this about Ethan. He doesn’t tell him “you’re not allowed to buy toys anymore”. He doesn’t say “we can’t hang out at your place anymore” either. He does however prefer to hang out in a place where he’s not constantly stepping on and bumping into all of Ethan’s toys. I don’t know about you, but I find rooms over-stuff with things kinda claustrophobic. Drew might feel the same way. Especially when all that stuff is giving you a Batman scowl of disapproval.
And as others have point out, Drew dressed up like Batman for Ethan as part of his super-hero sexual fantasy. Clearly Drew is willing to compromise.
Danggit, but I LIKE Drew. Oh, pleasepleaseplease don’t make me hate him. I don’t think I could take the dissapointment.
I mean, this is something that could be worked out, right? Of course I don’t want Ethan to have to repress one of my favourite aspects of his personality, but I certainly don’t want him to lose his first healthy relationship because Drew couldn’t get over the toys.
That being said, if I had a boyfriend that couldn’t handle the hundreds of books stacked… pretty much everwhere I inhabit, I’d probably just dump him. Hypocritical!Aslee is hypocritical.
IDK if it’s fair to hate Drew just on the basis of not wanting to be surrounded by thousands of tiny, staring eyes.
Oh, I know what you mean, of course… I used to ((And I may or may not still have them)) collect stuffed animals… My mom then bought me these cute dolls dressed up like things… A bear and a sunflower and stuff like that.
But they looked REAL. It was so WIERD! … I burnt them. And then apologized to my mother.
What I’m trying to say is, I get where Drew’s coming from, but from the way Ethan said it, it sounds like it’s going to be A Big Deal. It’s a bit silly, though,and I don’t want Drew to become one of those guys who nitpik on everything you like… That’s what I meant by ‘Please don’t make me hate him’.
But, after calming down, I can see that this probably isn’t the case, seeing how… Yanno, Drew’s awesome and junk.
I’m with you on the books. I have close to 1000 in my bedroom, but that’s because I don’t have any reason to move them out of my room :/
It’s okay for couples that don’t necessarily have to agree or accept everything their partners like or do. It’s just a matter of communicating your concerns and reaching to an acceptable compromise, a middle-ground that both partners can accept.
Give and take as the saying goes.
I would agree with this BUT Ethan’s collection thing is portrayed as something a bit outside his ability to control so it’s possible he might not be able to adhere to any such compromise over the long term.
Ugh. I find it totally reprehensible that they would give Mike Coke instead of Pepsi. Stupid drama tag.
Honestly, Coke doesn’t deserve him and is only doing this to hurt him.
Ethan needs to repeat the trick he did with Amber and the ponies.
No, not that trick, you sickos. D=
What? Is THAT what gay people do??
What? Have sex? Well.. yeah. Amongst many other things like shop for food, talk, watch movies, and >GASP!< pay bills.
Well that and subverting straight relationships.
I’ve said too much …
I have successfully addicted my girlfriend to ALL of my geeky vices: Toy collecting, Babylon 5, and comic books. (It helps she was already a Trekkie.)
My other vices… not so much.
Wow, Ethan just summarized my marriage, except that we (duh) live together and I keep my toy collection in a couple of cabinets (that my wife got me, because she is awesome and also wanted to keep things from spreading around the house) and the office shelves. But yeah, I try to keep things reasonable and she tries to be understanding.
And also there is sex. Woo!
I kinda feel like Ethan should be on the show “Hoarders”. I mean, doesn’t he have a sort of OCD regarding the ownership of toys, when you think about?
I mean, his obsession with toy collection was so intent that he disregarded personal growth in many ways such as realizing he was gay. It also has kept him from being able to form healthy relationships for the longest time. Hell, when a person’s life was in danger or his own, his immediate concern was toys and where to purchase them.
Frankly, the fact Drew isn’t completely comfortable with Ethan’s love of toys isn’t that surprising.
If he had OCD he wouldn’t have blown off toy hunting to celebrate with Amber.
Sex is nature’s duct tape … it fixes everything, and usually leaves you sticky.
I am going to steal this quote from you. Possibly.
God I want to punch that asshat, Dre uin teh face he’s such a DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH!
he’s the equivilant of teh boyfreidns on Sexn The city, no perosnalty, no rela effect on the plot, he’s just there for Ethan’s daily hot meat deliverry. Comapre there relationship[ to the complex dynamics and awesomness we got out of Leslie/Amber or hell even Faz/Amber, I hope Willis makes a new cool gay dude to break them up, maybe a ninja?
I… Drew-hate? Really? Ok, I understand that you feel he’s there only to be Ethan’s boyfriend. I can totally see where you’re coming from there. But, seriously? That was kinda’ the point.
And we have gotten to see glimpses of his personality. ((I really have no idea what you mean by ‘Sex and the City’. But, then again, I’ve never seen the TV show)). He could have his own plot. It doesn’t look like it’ll be anytime soon, but… Yanno, just hang in there.
Besides, we already HAVE a ninja character. And Ethan/Rick would kill a fangirl out there somewhere… And did you just list Faz/Amber as a relationship? How about Amber/Mike????
