The Ongoing Hilarity of Rape: Part Wev in an Infinitely Long Series

Hagar_The_Horrible

As has been documented over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again, there is nothing funnier than rape. This week, Chris (Zombie Dik) Browne, the son of the creator of Hägar the Horrible, adds to the fun.

What? You say there's no actual rape in the cartoon? Well, I suppose so. There's just all the accouterments. Guy claiming he can get "any girl?" Check. Girl plays "hard to get" (in other words, won't give up the goods)? Check. Girl forcibly abducted? Check. Res ipsa loquitur: the strip speaks for itself. The missing third panel (where he rapes Honi while she struggles to free herself from the giant magnet) doesn't need to be created; it's already implied.

Hilarious, isn't it? Hopefully tomorrow, Hägar will sneak down to the bar while his wife, Helga, complains that he doesn't do enough around the house. That'll be awesome.
