An internet comic strip for unsafe workers and childish grown-ups
NSFW Comix is a weekly series of not safe for work comics by Cybersp0nge, with an occasional guest comic. While the series covers a variety of topics, many of these comics revolve around a pervert loser Cuthwald and his four companions Becky, Grant, Psymantha and Spatula.The same author is also well-known for his parody flash, The UltimateShowdownOrgyofUltimate Destiny Homosexuality (which eventually had a censored version to show to your grandma).No links. At all.
This comic provides examples of:
Affectionate Parody: Of each and every other webcomic on teh Internets (needs citation). OK, in any case, of xkcd. Megan and Cueballs discussion about the ontological implications of Rule34 are mind-baffling. note Actually, it's a guest comic...maybe by Randall himself?
Heroic BSOD: Grant, Psymantha and Spatula upon seeing that Becky not only has a penis, but that she uses it to jerk off to pictures of Cuthwald.
Earlier, Psymantha and Grant had one upon finding a naked Cuthwald under their bed while they're naked.
Hypocritical Humor: A rare meta example occurs in the storyline with Cuthwalds 2D waifu safehaven bar. Of course, none of the in-universe 3D characters know that they are 2D in the comics itself...
I Ate WHAT?: Earlier comics have Spatula jacking off into the food while working as a Burger Barn cook. Also, that's what you get for stealing Grant's cookies as one early strip demonstrated.
In the story arc with Barack Obama visiting, subverted. He was initially displeased with a burger assumed jizzed upon by Grant being pressured by Spatula. However, it turned out that not only did Grant use Mayo to get Spatch off his case, but the "special sauce" was a result of a misplaced burger originally meant for an irate customer back when Obama was visiting as Senator. Obama returned because he swore that he had the best burger he ever tasted there.
Intercontinuity Crossover: When Cuthwald was assumed dead he started appearing in City 17 in Life With Lamarr. When Cuthwald was revealed to have been alive, Manly Man was seen reading a newspaper dismissing Cuthwald sightings in City 17.
Jumping the Shark:invoked Interpreted literally, at the climax of a storyline that ran for over a year and a half.
Negative Continuity: In some early comics, Cuthwald gets killed (not in the They Killed Kenny frequency though) or sent to prison and somehow returns at his next appearance without any explanation between the events.
Porn Stash: Cuthwald has one behind his comic book shelf. And it also happens to be where he stores the spooge he keeps in jars.
Psmith Psyndrome: Psymantha. Why her name is spelled this way is never brought up. She does claim to be graduating in psychology, but any possible connection between this degree programme and her name is not implied either.
Raging Stiffie: While not actually used, Manly Man's lengthy rant about the curse of the male libido (which tells even geriatric men that they should "SCREW!") references this trope heavily.
Reluctant Monster: Tentacle Boy. Although partly subverted, since the line "The Chick notices he isn't attacking and discovers his true nature" is the opposite to what we've seen in the latest episode, where the chick notices he IS attacking and uncovers his true nature (much to his reluctance).
Shaggy Dog Story: The "20-Year Old Virgin" storyline where Cuthwald's companions put in a lot of work to please him and it supposedly destroyed the world; to save the day they got a second chance and went the too-easy route for an anticlimactic ending.
Stealth Pun: In strip 18. Don't get it? Ask your parents.
Take That: There's one for an Easter Egg in the credits screen after The Ultimate Orgy. There's a disclaimer stating that all characters real and imaginary were satirically used and not intended to slander or besmirch. Mousing over "real persons" also carries this message: Particularly in the case of Eric Bauman, because that is a true and accurate representation of him - He actually IS a cocksucker.note for the record, that was back when Eric Bauman was head of Ebaum's World, which was criticized for stealing other peoples' works on the internet.
10-Minute Retirement: Cybersp0nge "retired" for three months before proceeding with the Death of Cuthwald storyline. An entire storyline and some "celebrityguestcomics" ensued, until one of them prompts him to return from "retirement".
Transsexual: Becky is a very well-endowed (top and bottom) non-op transwoman. Interestingly, she seems to get along with her penis rather well, meaning it's not clear if she's non-op because she's broke, or because she feels she doesn't need to.
