guess you could say
is out of the bag
New incentive, this time it’s a comic I drew in 2007! Which is obvious from the.. style and basically because the year is referenced in one of the panels. Fun fun!
Lucy, right. Haha…ha..ha…..
Love this comic.
KSib April 21, 2010, 4:28 AM EST.
David seems to be becoming a more and more interesting character. Also, given his expressions and responses, he doesn’t seem to be rooting for PauloxLucy
Lariat April 21, 2010, 4:28 AM EST.
I’m all about Lucy being happy with Paulo. If she can get something stable going finally then good for her.
KSib April 21, 2010, 4:31 AM EST.
Haha, Weird Al reference in the incentive ^_^
ILB April 21, 2010, 4:55 AM EST.
thi is gatting quite interesting…
what will happen to paulo and lucy..will she ever go back to mike..the are question we ask and how fun ill it be until we know…eh?
unknownfurry April 21, 2010, 4:58 AM EST.
wait… what? what did she do?!
Jack April 21, 2010, 5:06 AM EST.
I didn’t quite understand at first Jack, but he said LUCY blueballed Paulo, but PAULO is the one who turned her down. He’s embarrassed because he doesn’t wanna tell David he turned down sex.
KSib April 21, 2010, 5:08 AM EST.
oooh! for a minute there i thought she didn’t sex him but ded something else instead. he did say they fooled around.
Jack April 21, 2010, 5:13 AM EST.
Nah, doing the other stuff still pretty much counts as sex.
Jeff in Aus April 21, 2010, 5:16 AM EST.
What David meant with “leave it to Lucy to blueball you”?
P.S: I’m not stupid, I’m portuguese.
Ana (aka Knux-the-Killer) April 21, 2010, 5:31 AM EST.
Poor Paulo, even if he “doesn’t do awkward” lately he seems to be sorrouded by it. Not that it’s an issue, he puts totally awesome faces when that happens.
And I feel that the super macho image of Paulo in David’s mind is crumbling again… or something…
Adult Mike scares me.
x_uve April 21, 2010, 5:41 AM EST.
mommy? why are that mans muscles all box like?
ya, adult mike is funny. x3
Jack April 21, 2010, 5:43 AM EST.
@Ana: er… blueball is a male condition which comes when one is aroused for long but finally doesn’t er… finish the affair? Used in that context he meant that Lucy was the one to abort the operation and left Paulo with the craving. And obviously that wasn’t the case. :p
And sorry for the double posting. Yay me and my taking too long to write comments.
x_uve April 21, 2010, 5:45 AM EST.
No offence, but Im hoping for a mikexlucy ending. Mike just needs to get his senses knocked back into him.
Riff2580 April 21, 2010, 6:09 AM EST.
lol i so love the voting panel mike bangs lucy in the end o.0
Bitcommet April 21, 2010, 6:16 AM EST.
Jack April 21, 2010, 6:18 AM EST.
Ah David, even your idol knows when the time is right.
And adult Mike scares me. How dare you turn Lucy to stone.
Wait, were Daisy and Paulo married!?
Ved of Flames April 21, 2010, 6:23 AM EST.
Hummm… I can’t decide if I’d prefer a MikexLucy or a PauloxLucy ending…
But Lucy does seem to be happier around Paulo.
We’ll just have to wait (For ages) and see.
Disciple April 21, 2010, 6:26 AM EST.
Ved: They were just.. there. It was a silly comic :-[ NOTHING SPOILERY AT ALL, HONEST.
Taeshi April 21, 2010, 6:27 AM EST.
hah omg that voting pic made my jaw hurt - I lol’d so hard.
Poor Mike, or lucky Mike?
Ragnir April 21, 2010, 6:36 AM EST.
Jack April 21, 2010, 6:45 AM EST.
Seems David is having a bit of trouble picking up on the changes in Paulo…
Great incentive, I haven’t laughed like that in ages!
Pathetique April 21, 2010, 7:06 AM EST.
Also, that incentive comic was silly and I loved it.
Moddy Auld April 21, 2010, 7:37 AM EST.
I donnu… it must be really AWKWARD if they actually do it- for the friends and them and all that-
Lisa April 21, 2010, 7:51 AM EST.
WHERE IS THE FREAKING VOTE BUTTON?!
Le Biologist April 21, 2010, 8:24 AM EST.
Hm.. not sure if this will come back to bite him. David doesn’t strike me as the tight lipped type (more so out of innocence then malice of course) not exactly the guy I’d tell I was ‘fooling around’ with Lucy…. if the dog blurts that out later both Tess -and- Lucy are going to want to ring his neck.
But ah, they’re best friends, maybe I should put more faith on the dog?
Bribri April 21, 2010, 8:28 AM EST.
Le Biologist: Why are people having trouble? I mean, it’s under the comic, there’s an icon of Lucy with a sign that clearly says “VOTE”.. if you read the box where the picture is, there’s a big link to Topwebcomics? I’m not trying to patronise, I’m actually wondering if you’re using a screwy browser or something because I think it sticks out like a sore thumb?
Taeshi April 21, 2010, 8:37 AM EST.
Nah, he probably just came in through the forums and didn’t realise it.
Don’t get no vote links in the forums.
Jeff in Aus April 21, 2010, 8:41 AM EST.
Ahhh, that’s a fair enough point. I’m just like LUCY. HOLDING SIGN. AAAAAA
I spent all of ten minutes drawing that ;___; PEOPLE BETTER NOTICE IT. *Punched*
Taeshi April 21, 2010, 8:42 AM EST.
I notice it.
It’s a very lovely drawing Miss Taeshi.
Jeff in Aus April 21, 2010, 8:51 AM EST.
Weird Al reference in the incentive? How clever! Almost missed it.
Atticus J. Chekhov April 21, 2010, 9:21 AM EST.
Loved the oncentive!!! ;)
Mezmo April 21, 2010, 9:30 AM EST.
David’s FREAKIN’ OOOOUUUUT.
Oh, and in response to the opening of your description here:
CSI Miami: YEEEEEAAAAAAHHHH!!!!
DavCube April 21, 2010, 9:33 AM EST.
Also wouldn’t that be agaisnt the law since mike was ten years older but Lucy wad preserved as like 14?? Or would it just be her age but how young her body was??
Mezmo April 21, 2010, 9:34 AM EST.
technically she has been existing for 24 years, biology wise, she is still 14. so there. :\
Jack April 21, 2010, 9:40 AM EST.
incentive was good but the last part of it….
*Blushes and nosebleeds*
El Legendario April 21, 2010, 9:41 AM EST.
Just finished reading the entire comic… That took a good long forever but I must say it was worth it. Phenomenal comic. <3
Pyraliss April 21, 2010, 9:45 AM EST.
“She was still a delicious loli”
How old are they in this comic again?
Megaket, 17 years old April 21, 2010, 9:55 AM EST.
‘round 14 i think, or 15 or something.
Jack April 21, 2010, 10:00 AM EST.
They’re sophomores in high school, so that puts them somewhere between 14 and 16.
And what the hell happened that we didn’t see?!
Erebus April 21, 2010, 10:18 AM EST.
Man do I feel like an idiot, it took me three times of reading this page to finally get that last portion of it. It’s good to see that Paulo doesn’t confuse this, I never really thought of him as this levelheaded before but there you go.
John April 21, 2010, 10:24 AM EST.
“EH?!” Hey, THERE’S a vote button. I actually looked for it on Monday but couldn’t find it. Saw someone in a comment say it was on the “Main Page”, but… this webcomic has a main page? Whaaaat?
Cedric Bale April 21, 2010, 10:25 AM EST.
you can see the ages at styory&characters.
Bitcommet April 21, 2010, 10:27 AM EST.
You win an internets, Taeshi.
Quacksalver April 21, 2010, 10:41 AM EST.
Comment for the incentive: ROFLWUT.
Cedric Bale April 21, 2010, 10:43 AM EST.
i got so confused during this strip i fell stupid.
punkprincess April 21, 2010, 10:59 AM EST.
Just finished reading through all the backlog, This. Comic. Rocks. Out of the 50 someodd webcomics that I read this is the only one I’ve bothered to take the time to vote, that’s how much I love it.
MiwAuturu April 21, 2010, 11:05 AM EST.
i think the only thing i can express for this is… umm umm umm \o/ <— that guy :3
good stuff made, new incenitive is good too ^-^
Kariz April 21, 2010, 11:11 AM EST.
Is… is… is David an Observer!?
Gabriel Kaxbe April 21, 2010, 11:35 AM EST.
Wow, David is really coming out of this character closet and actually showing intelligence…
Incentive was good.
I haven’t read a good comic like this in… well ever… lol…
keep it up!
Crest April 21, 2010, 11:52 AM EST.
FOR SHAME PAULO
Skyen April 21, 2010, 11:57 AM EST.
I’m not a dude! So there.
Also - Loli Lucy getting banged by Adult Mike - with witnesses = Mike win?
Ragnir April 21, 2010, 12:08 PM EST.
@ incentive: xD
Freaking yes. A million times, yes.
Jerk April 21, 2010, 12:26 PM EST.
@Ragnir: Well… the results seems to be a “Mike win” for completing his epic and marvelous quest for um… getting his man juices all over her gorgeous face. The fact that he had to wait ten years adrift alone in a boat, fighting killer fishes and getting his poor scarf ruined (oh no) hurts a bit that “Mike wins” impression though. ^^u
And by the way, I find amusing how David seems to be torn between being relieved by the fact that Paulo didn’t do anything serious with Lucy after all (which, by the way, is interesting cause it truly seems he feels that way) and being angry at Paulo for letting go an opportunity to score.
x_uve April 21, 2010, 1:42 PM EST.
Well when you put it that way…Yay for Mike?
& Yes. David. Feeling things. Weird huh?
Ragnir April 21, 2010, 2:08 PM EST.
I don’t see the icon described either. I see a hyperlink with the text “Vote for BCB on Top Webcomics” but no button.
Pvblivs April 21, 2010, 2:23 PM EST.
Anyone notice how David grew like a foot or so over the course of the last two panels?
Jack April 21, 2010, 2:54 PM EST.
I love david so much.
tom April 21, 2010, 3:12 PM EST.
what the heck?! another Jack?! alright you impostor! who are you?!
never mind, i came after you so im gonna be Jack the second.
Jack 2 April 21, 2010, 3:33 PM EST.
Haha, David is so funny. xD
KirbyFlash April 21, 2010, 3:38 PM EST.
@Jack (the first one)
It’s not so much David growing as Paulo shrinking.
Erebus April 21, 2010, 4:15 PM EST.

BSQ April 21, 2010, 4:54 PM EST.
that incentive was the best thing EVER!
qwertygaso April 21, 2010, 5:49 PM EST.
I loved th fact that Mike still had the same scarf in the incentive. He can boat across an ocean, but he still wont lose the scarf.
Darkdrake April 21, 2010, 5:59 PM EST.
Hyper April 21, 2010, 6:04 PM EST.

I do like your comic though and hope it stays the same.
Daborior April 21, 2010, 8:47 PM EST.
David’s face in panel 5 is soooo Azumanga Daioh, it’s hilarious. …(same goes for 90% of all previous panels too.)

Hmmm i never read a decent webcomic before…….
LordofStorm April 21, 2010, 10:53 PM EST.
I love David’s expression at the end. It’s like “HEY I AM RIGHT AREN’T I I HAD BETTER BE RIGHT DAMMIT”
Hijack April 21, 2010, 11:01 PM EST.
thou be warned taeshi if there is anymore extreme melodrama as in the chapter another shoulder, somehow, someway, i will “break” into the comic, show up as a norwegian forest cat, find lucy and mike, and proceed to lock them in a small room until they make up and all is well again … until lucy roundhouses me into the lower stratosphere then ayu beamed by mike and poof im back into reality ;3
Austin Smith April 21, 2010, 11:11 PM EST.

CompactDesk April 21, 2010, 11:47 PM EST.
Paulo being a good womanizer knows “you don’t stick you dick in crazy” especially if you have to deal with them on a regular basis.
Chronos April 22, 2010, 1:14 AM EST.
Wow, an epic three days after finding it, I’ve gotten caught up on BSCB. And I gotta say, it’s bloody amazing so far, keep up the great work!
Insomniac April 22, 2010, 1:25 AM EST.
Why is David so dependent on Paulo being a lech?
DZ April 22, 2010, 1:57 AM EST.
rank 20 has been broken. Keep voting people, only 3600 votes between us and rank 10
Darkdrake April 22, 2010, 2:59 AM EST.
All’s I know is, it’ll never get past 2kinds and The Phoenix Requiem. Just sayin’.
Insomniac April 22, 2010, 3:16 AM EST.
@Insomniac: So says you. People said that about 2kinds and Pheonix Requiem back in the day, citing the then-heavy-hitters.
Why so negative?
Also, incentive comic is FTW. FOR TEH EFFIN’ WIN.
LOL at olde-tyme PokéMon references (S.S. Anne, Singing Jigglypuff as reporter with microphone, the stone maiden who waited for her lover lost at sea for years, then the tears that woke her up like Ash in the first movie…)
Also, “delicious loli”. And the Weird Al quote. It was great.
waffle911 April 22, 2010, 3:53 AM EST.
adam April 22, 2010, 5:41 AM EST.
Okay, so, I’ve gotta ask: Did Lucy… er….. “help” Paulo without actually having full-on intercourse with him? Or is he just embarrassed because he’s the one who shut HER down? For some reason, I’m leaning towards the former O.O
JJJ April 22, 2010, 6:02 AM EST.
1 thing: WTF INCENTIVE!?
Dudster April 22, 2010, 8:23 AM EST.
Most epic incentive ever ^^
So Paulo is fully aware that they have quite fool around but it seems he did not see Lucy is looking at him with a “he is so awesome” look on her face. What will he do when he will guess she’s starting to fall for him? Perhaps it will be Tess who will check that first.
Epic drama incoming ^^
shaman April 22, 2010, 9:42 AM EST.
I’ve just read through your Comic, and its danm addictive . Now i can’t wait to find out whats gonna happen next.
Drame April 22, 2010, 10:53 AM EST.
Love your comic! totally addicted @_@

NyanKoi April 22, 2010, 1:12 PM EST.
hey wait a tick… where IS TESS?
haven’t seen her… not even in the previous chapter.
Dudster April 22, 2010, 4:29 PM EST.
Also, LucyxPaulo…. i say, nay.
Nay goes Horse.
Dudster April 22, 2010, 4:30 PM EST.
Stop criticizing the sotry and enjoy it like normal people
Hijack April 22, 2010, 4:59 PM EST.
@Hijack: Define normal people =P
I for one am loving the story unfolding, it’s actually pretty interesting, and in my experience, the way things would actually transpire in such a situation.
Awesome comic thus far!
Crest April 22, 2010, 5:46 PM EST.
I’ve been reading this comic for a long time, and I gotta say, it’s amazing. ^w^
Y’know, though… If there isn’t one already, I think it’d be cool if there was an incentive archive. =/ I hadn’t been able to get onto a computer the last week or two, and I missed all those incentives. ;^; It makes me sad.
Spot April 22, 2010, 7:36 PM EST.
Ha. I’d never heard the term ‘blueball’ before this strip. Had to look up what it meant. Yeesh, it sounds unpleasant… but thanks for teaching me something new!
Also, I know I asked this on a previous strip, but I’ll ask again, just in case you didn’t get it.
Does Sandy have a dark past too?
So far, in all that we’ve seen of her, she just seems to be a Mary-Sue made to keep Mike unavailable. I’d love to know that she has a dark past too! ^.^ And also a darker side to her personality. >:)
ravengal April 22, 2010, 8:10 PM EST.
@ravengal to give someone “blue balls” is when a girl is a total tease to a guy, and he thinks he’s gonna get laid (100% sure), but he doesn’t. ha ha
Eveco April 22, 2010, 8:45 PM EST.
Just throwing this out there, but I remember earlyier in the story about why the comic is named how it is. And while I read the bonus comic, the picture with the guy saying Furry Yiff or porn!? popped in my head andd I burst out laughing lol…..IT was freaking funny lol until my mom throw a shoe at me and told me to shut up…..that hurt.T_T
Riff2580 April 22, 2010, 8:50 PM EST.
Also Taeshi, you got a myspace? I want to add you as a friend. Ill also add anyone who wants to be friends.All I have for a friend is the dude who sings fireflys and all he talks about is random stuff….makes me think if he’s high or something……wait….that must be how he gets all those song Ideas.
Riff2580 April 22, 2010, 8:54 PM EST.
BY THE WAY GUYS
BY THE WAY
I’m getting out of work heaps late today so I won’t be able to post the new incentive on time (because I haven’t drawn it yet lol)
which means the comic itself won’t be updated at like 2 AM Friday.
JUST BE A FEW HOURS LATE IT WILL STILL BE ON FRIDAY BUT JUST LETTING YOU GUYS KNOW KAY
i’m getting out of work at like 9 PM Australian time which I assume is like 5 AM American New Jersey time, so I’m sure by 7 AM the comic will be up.
I’M SURE YOU COOL KATZ CAN WAIT
holy **** i’m gonna be late now

That’s what I said.
Hijack April 22, 2010, 11:29 PM EST.
I think I understand why David acts so loopy; he’s always an outside observer on other people’s personal affairs. He’s not stupid, he’s just confused!
Solario the Visored April 23, 2010, 12:13 AM EST.
Hey, Taeshi! BCB is #19 on TopWebcomics nao! Luv this comic so much - it totally deserves the rank!

It’s all that Paulo taught David being thrown back at him…..
…without Paulo’s influence, I wonder how David would act….

TheSandMan961 December 24, 2010, 10:11 PM EST.
panels 5, 7, 9 -> theyre the same size
panels 12, 13 -> david is taller again?
wow make up your mind (david IS taller, right??)
DFA January 23, 2011, 5:06 PM EST.
DFA that’s point of view. In 11 and 12 Paulo is a bit farther back because David is walking away from him with anger.
Idk if you’ll ever read this. Meh.
Anonymous2 February 16, 2011, 12:46 AM EST.
SPOILER FOR THE NEXT PAGE!
Hello, it’s blackmage. Yes I’m the same blackmage in all the other comments.
You may have been wondering about why I don’t like David. Well in the next couple of pages you will know why.

Thank you for teaching me a new term today Taeshi.
Imma go tell mah mommy and daddy now whut blueball means!

Come on, David. Be happy for Paulo.
