Sohmer had tried to get a LICD [[AnimatedAdaptation cartoon]] [[ThePilot pilot]] off the ground. He asked $75,000 (half the projected budget, with him footing the other half) from his fans; by the projected deadline, [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/537261515/least-i-could-do-the-pilot around 1,200 backers had donated well over $100,000.]] The pilot can be found on [=YouTube=], albeit unofficially. You can also buy the video on the official iPod/Android app. No word yet on if it's been picked up, however.

One of the three webcomics from the creative team of Ryan Sohmer and Lar [=DeSouza=] (the others being ''Webcomic/LookingForGroup'' and ''TheGutters''). The award-winning ''[[http://www.leasticoulddo.com Least I Could Do]]'' is mainly a gag-based comic strip (although every month it features a StoryArc or two that last about a week) about the misadventures of a group of longtime 20-something geek friends living in the city. The stories mainly revolve around sex, love, modern life and all things geeky from ''StarWars'' to ''Franchise/StarTrek'' to ''LordOfTheRings'' to {{comic book}}s to video games and back again.

The main character is the incredibly promiscuous Rayne, who, if you were to judge lecherousness on a scale of one to ten with ten being the highest a human could possibly be, would probably hit somewhere [[BrokeTheRatingScale around a twenty-three]]. Throw in a lot of IdiotHero, a few dashes of ManChild (with a few hints of PsychopathicManchild), and a lot of JerkAss and you will have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Rayne, although there are many occasions where he shows greater depths behind the intentionally and unapologetically shallow face he presents to the world.

*** This is putting it mildly. In recent years more and more focus is less on jokes and more on Sohmer using the comic to pitch his theories on how to fix the world.

** The pilot for the series [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ked4N_BNZ0Y&list=UU2bF3oZhfE2cDrurqv_LvYA Con Season]] demonstrates this further. It's mostly Sohmer goofing off with people while the other members of Blind Ferret say how great he is.

* GenerationXerox: Ashley is basically a female 5-year old Rayne. Just without the extreme interest in the opposite sex (which is good, since, you know, FIVE). She's shown to have an attention span even shorter than his (though perhaps it's justified, since, again, five years old), and in Rayne's vision of the future, [[spoiler: she's taken his place as company CEO after he retires, matching his business sense as well]].


Added DiffLines:

* PhraseCatcher: Jumpmaster Julie. "Hai."

* TheVoiceless: Both the "Suck for a buck" prostitute, and Wild Bill, neither of whom has ever actually said a word in the comic (assuming you don't count Bill's threatening growls).

** Rayne's good angel is apparently [[http://www.leasticoulddo.com/comic/20070926/ HITLER]].



* HeadTiltinglyKinky: Rayne tries watching some Asian porn to help decide if it's worth impressing Cyndi's parents just to sleep with her. His (and John's) conclusion? [[http://www.leasticoulddo.com/comic/20030927/ Well...]]

ImpossibleHourglassFigure: Issa has one of the largest racks in the comic, equally wide hips, and a waist that could fit through a keyhole.


Added DiffLines:

* ProgressivelyPrettier: Inverted with the "Suck for a buck" prostitute, who starts out looking quite normal and even rather attractive. These days she's wall-eyed, lank-haired, and all skin and bones.
