    And thus we have proof that Norwegians don't ever have sex.

    I don't've enough patience to wait for it to load. What is it?

    People over at Explosm forums (which I'm a regular member of) are complaining like crazy over that comic because it's apparently in bad taste.

    I read Cyanide & Happiness everyday, but I just don't get this one...

    Edit: I did some background checks on the forums, and now I get it, and whilst I must say I do find it rather amusing, I will agree that it was really bad taste. But then again the C&H comics usually are offensive in some way or another...

    If you read Ctrl + Alt + Delete then you'd get it.

    Pretty much as soon as I read that last panel, my jaw dropped.
    As bad as that is, however, If the face of the man saying it was different, perhaps a more concerned expression, it wouldn't seem as awful, and may indeed appear to be a strong statement. Seeing as it's cyanide and happiness, I wouldn't really expect that.

    But look!

    It's an interesting comic. Templar, Arizona.

    That's cause it's mocking a fairly serious CAD. It left me a little offended, but I know enough about CnH to not get upset. I think it's tasteless, but far from the worst comic I've ever read...

    Somebody link the CAD comic so I can fully appreciate the bad taste.

    whoops.

    I put it here because i was wondering whether this sort of stuff is okay. But I guess this is why we have forums.

    For those who were wondering, Tim from CAD had a girlfriend who miscarried, so he knew exactly what he was talking about. The blog was ripped from explaining to his fans that it was not going to end up being a comic about miscarriage, it's still a comic about gamers, but how they as gamers would and could react to the situation.

    Today's comic should justify what he said.

    And for Japes, I'll just post it here. This begins the whole miscarriage series.

    Edit:
    This is the home page for CAD.

    His blog on the front page has moved on to some crap about a foam chair, last time I checked.

    This particular CAD strip spawned hundreds of parodies at 4chan's /b/ board.
