If I lose, my masculinity is questioned for losing to a girl. If I win, I'm just the asshole who beat up a girl. There's no victory in either case! Reply Leftos on August 31, 2010 at 9:08 pm True that. Reply Raquel on September 1, 2010 at 6:26 am A very sad truth, which puts guys in an akward place if the girl is badass and picking a fight. thats why i'd go for submission holds, pressure points, that sort of thing. you don't have to hit her to win, you see? public opinion seems to favor the fighter who's calm, speaks rationaly, and only does as much as is nessisary. If you can stay cool while she's freaking out, you win! Reply Slothic on January 24, 2011 at 7:51 pm That is why you dont do it infront of others. 😀 Reply Nils on August 31, 2010 at 9:21 pm So many truths =D Reply The Dukenator on August 31, 2010 at 10:21 pm Not shown in panel 4 is a police officer who overhears the ongoing conversation. Reply SDcowboy on August 31, 2010 at 11:42 pm There is no excuse for dealing out a purple-nurple. Shame on you bug. Reply Jep on September 1, 2010 at 4:54 am Damn love handles! Reply -PookeyG- on September 1, 2010 at 5:00 am The Purple Nurple. ONE TOUCH FATALITY! Reply Kodiak on September 1, 2010 at 5:32 am NerdBug sucker punched the sh*t out of Bug….Adam is right, I love that the Nerd is NOW the bully. Great twist. Reply Your Obedient Serpen on September 1, 2010 at 5:43 am Maybe it's because I only discovered the strip last week, and just did an archive binge, but … it surprises me how none of the commenters seem to have noticed that the Bug With Glasses(a.k.a. "Nerd Bug") is consistently the aggressor and the bully. Reply That Chick on September 1, 2010 at 7:19 am Bug is the one being called the bully in panel 4 not Nerd bug. Reply ThaAlphacroc on September 1, 2010 at 7:43 am poor bug he just cant win :O Reply karine on September 1, 2010 at 8:45 am That's quite a few apearances by nerdbug lately. Reply Thespian on September 1, 2010 at 9:23 am Fan favourite. Or rather, the guy we love to hate? Reply o0o on September 1, 2010 at 10:11 am he's the ensemble darkhorse! (of course, since the only other members of the ensemble are bug and girl bug, i don't know if this is a true example of the trope…) Reply AGuy on September 1, 2010 at 10:22 am Panel 3 made me laugh out loud, and panel four always seems to be true. Reply BugFan on September 1, 2010 at 10:28 am I normally love bug but these last three (cannibalism, algebra and this one) really bug really? I though you could not get any better but you proved me wrong these ones were amazing I almost died after reading the last panel of this one (seriously i choked on water i was drinking it was not fun) Reply Adam on September 1, 2010 at 12:02 pm Thanks a lot! When you said "I normally love bug…" my heart sank because I thought you were going to continue with "…but lately it's been horrible." Glad you've been liking them. And I'm sorry I made you choke on your water, but I do love hearing that my comic provokes those kind of reactions. Reply Goeber on September 1, 2010 at 10:40 am Pop! Reply Raven on September 1, 2010 at 2:24 pm I just finished reading all the back editions of this strip. I love it!! I love you, Adam!! Can I marry you? Can I have your love child? Wait. I'm not supposed to say that. Okay. Inside voice. I only have one question; why are you only doing 5 a week? Reply Jim Wright on September 2, 2010 at 3:14 am I believe this is the only time in the history of comics the term "purple-nurple" has been used. Well done, Adam. Reply Spencer Collins on December 21, 2010 at 8:08 pm I'm assuming a Purple Nurple is similar to a Nipple Cripple? If so, Ouch! Reply Michael on November 7, 2012 at 6:59 pm I have had the experience of the last one. Not having my house torched, but the public opinion one. The only way I was able to get over that was to remind myself I knew what happened, that other people’s opinion was of no importance. Made my life a lot better in general once I stopped caring what other people thought of me. Reply VaguelyCreepy on April 25, 2013 at 3:37 am Why do guys even HAVE nurples?!
