What do you mean you don't like clowns?

I Want a Drink is a... uh... webcomic hosted on ComicFury centered around three human-porifera hybrids and a demon in a Crapsack World ruled by a giant Sea Sponge. The webcomic stars three Colour Coded escaped slaves known only as Drink, Wash and Lunch (There's also a Demonic Clown somewhere in there but we don't know much about him yet) and their escape from Squirt and his teddy bear Nuggles.

I Want A Drink contains examples of:

  • Adult Fear: Cushion's motivation in My Dinner and The Maybe Murderer.
  • After the End: While not specified, The Great Squirt hints at something destroying (or at least threatening) the Earth that was, most likely converting the last of humanity into a Slave Race.
    • Dinner appears to be the sole survivor of the human race, being the only character so far to actually have skin complexion.
  • Ambiguous Gender: Drink's gender has never been confirmed.
  • Art Evolution: We could go on for ages about the stylistic changes between the 5 current chapters.
  • Artificial Limbs: All of Squirt's slaves have no hands and are instead replaced with robotic claws.

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: Potential readers may be turned off by just how bizarre the webcomic and it's setting are. At first glance it may look like a bunch of randomly selected crap thrown together and given a story.
  • Big Bad: The Great Squirt. He's a dick.
  • Chaotic Stupid: Though (probably) not a complete idiot, Wash has put herself and her friends in danger more than once through her actions.
  • Clothing Damage: Lunch's torn sleeve.
    • In chapter 3 it seems all of the protagonist's clothing has suffered, giving their outfits a more post apocalyptic vibe.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Can be said about the protagonists and Squirt's slaves, with Drink being Red, Lunch being Orange and Wash being Green.
    • Tickles being purple.
  • Creepy Cute: Almost every character in the webcomic could fall under this trope, but Nuggles takes first place as a cute, cuddly, giant Killer Teddy Bear with an exposed skull-like head and gaping hole in the torso to reveal his ribcage and internal organs.
    • Looks more like a skull in the second chapter.
  • Creepy Doll: Cushion fits this trope, complete with missing arm and Glasgow Grin. She appears as the antagonist of My Dinner and The Maybe Murderer, and she is terrifying.
  • Fake Arm Disarm: Wash loses her arm to Nuggles in CLOWN.
    • She seems to have replaced it since.
  • Five-Man Band: With the addition of Dinner in chapter 3, the protagonists have become this.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: Nuggles.
  • Form-Fitting Wardrobe / Future Spandex: All of Squirt's slaves wear a monochrome jumpsuit uniform.
  • Gentle Giant: Tickles, until you get on his bad side.
  • Guardian Entity: Tickles to Drink.
    • The Dragon Nuggles to Squirt.
    • Cushion to the other escaped slaves
  • Happiness in Slavery: Wash is completely fine with her position, though The Power of Friendship seems to have compelled her.
  • Hellhole Prison: The Crab Dungeon.
  • Monster Clown: Tickles, though the description paints him as benevolent.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Drink's outburst in the first chapter.
  • Slave Liberation
  • Wheelchair Woobie: Drink has no legs and uses two wheels as a substitute.
    • Even if there's no goddamn way they could balance perfectly on them.
  • Your Days Are Numbered: All Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner slaves are destined to live up to their namesake when they reach 18 years of age.
