I quoted this to my then-girlfriend now-fiancee like a year ago, and she thought I was talking about the kind of shop that sold anal beads, so now we refer to any even remotely risque establishment as "the bead store"

This is my story, and also an excuse to omit two accents on two distinct "e"s in one sentence

Yeah. It’s a toss up between this and ray finding a fifty for the funniest part of the strip but it’s an all timer lol
I think him finding the $50 is in a follow-up strip.

EDIT: oh did you mean the strip as a whole? I feel like there are some other strong contenders if so but these moments are definitely up there.

While Nice Pete has strange ideas he does not seem to have any particular racial animus, unlike Pat, who has clear, strong prejudices, and Ray, who is careless enough to marry Grace Jones. Nice Pete may legitimately be unaware of the existence of ethnic groups, given his use of George Lopez as a comparison point in his fried chicken recipe. Though he surely must have heard of them given his time in prison...

Also I know I've read in an interview or some Achewood retrospective somewhere that the comic actually "soft-launched" when he sent links to a bunch of friends a few weeks earlier - maybe even on September 10th - and then he decided to hold off on attempting to further publicize it given the Circumstances.

I could swear I remember that as well. It's at least mentioned at the end of this blog post: http://chrisonstad.blogspot.com/201...re-opens_1.html , but I haven't been able to find the interview where he actually tells the whole story.

Roast Beef lay back on the red satin bed, depression playing across his handsome features. Molly, nice, not my type, walked into the room wearing erotic lingerie with a subtle computer programming theme. She had to get back to I don't know, some crappy-assed waitress job in a few hours, but for now, the my pool house was the limits of their world.

Ray doesn't know what Molly does for a living, doesn't respect it, still includes it in the very expensive custom book he had printed.

Roland and Thaddeus walked into the luxury rental suite. "Awww yeah," Roland yelled, "We gonna gay it up in THIS place! WHO WANTS TO GET THEIR GAY ON!" Thaddeus munched on a Madeira-braised chanterelle crostini and did a Bailey's. "Awww HELLZ yeah," he answered. "Let's get some fellas up here and show this room just how gay things can get!"

I know Onstad is a foodie and injects it heavily into the strips, but ...I have no goddamn idea what "Madeira-braised chanterelle crostini " even STARTS to be.
Like, NONE of those words (aside from "braised") mean ANYTHING to me.

I only have excellent ideas


Chanterelles are not super expensive, treat yourself the next time you're at the grocery store or farmer's market, you should be able to find them dried at least in a lot of places. You can also approximate a crostini in your own home by cutting a big baguette into little rounds, brushing both sides of each piece with olive oil, and then toasting them. Now you too can soon say "Awww HELLZ yeah," with the boys.
