    Holy crap, I had this song stuck in my head ALL of last week. That and Mtume's "Juicy Fruit" 😀

  2. ScottBieser says:

    Heh. This gal paid hundreds of dollars and all he can talk about is Hanna. Too bad Hanna can't hear what's going on, she'd feel a lot better.

  3. Maggie says:

    Given that that looks like Patchy Paul (NSFW: http://shop.tootimid.com/fun-factory-patchy-paul-… I'm guessing Hanna's doing quite fine.

    Hey, FYI, hovertext doesn't show up in the RSS feeds (using Google Reader). Looks like the "title" attribute doesn't go through at all.

    The last three panels: holy shit.

  7. Iaman says:

    What size is the paper bag parade print, does anybody know?

  8. meredith says:

    @Iaman It's about 15"x8".

  9. T Campbell says:

    This one resonated with me, because I got to be that nameless "lucky winner" once– won a date with a Star Wars cover model, who, it turned out, was married with a kid. Still glad I got to have the experience, but yeah, the peak of excitement was winning, and things were getting awkward by the time the check arrived.

  10. KTurtle says:

    Oh wow, all these years I thought that one line was "P-p-p-people like", not "v-v-v-viva la"!

  11. danineteen says:

    Aww… poor Hanna.

  12. Almost Literally says:

    Is it just me, or did this strip change? I distinctly remember him saying 'You paid for this date, and all I can talk about is Hanna' or 'You paid for this date, and all I can talk about is my girl friend'…

  13. Marcos El Malo says:

    I had to go watch Yacht Rock #2 immediately after reading this.


    It's the fictional origin of that song.

  14. Mr. F says:

    What's the name of that song, anyway? The only one I can find is by Hall and Oates.

  15. rpfresh says:

    aaaaaahahaha I don’t think I’ve ever laughed at a single comic as much as I laughed at this one. Listening to Portable Radio while reading those last few panels only makes it better.

  16. autumn says:

    Is no one going to comment on the ambiguous looking object in Hanna's hand in the second to last panel…?

    Also, on the dresser in the same panel, is that a glass bowl or a strange looking ashtray…

  17. Carvin says:

    I dunno… I think Marek could do better as a date than this. But then again, it wouldn't be very funny.

  18. greep says:

    hah, so much for hanna not caring about what marek does with his free time 😉

  19. Jessie says:

    Oh hell yeah. Those last three panels made my day.

  20. SlicedBread says:

    haha i love how all he can talk about is hanna. meanwhile, jeeeeeealous hanna. they so obviously can't live without each other, i love it.
