My safe word is “carbohydrates.”
By the way, check out the original art below by Matt Baker. Although the source material here is a weird combo of far out crime and adventure, Baker is best known as one of the finest romance comic book artists of all time.

SCENE: A male police officer (probably a sergeant) is behind a desk yelling at a woman who is being let away by another male police officer.
SGT: Pervert, you’re going to prison for 100 years! Maybe longer!
WOMAN: Okay! But let’s agree on a “safe word” first…in case I don’t like it!

I caught a typo in today’s comic just as I was loading the image onto the site. At first, the woman wanted to have an “organism” instead of an “orgasm.” (On the other hand, maybe that’s funnier.)
Sigh. It’s not the worse typo I’ve ever made—or seen.
The most interesting typo I ever saw was decades ago when I was a newspaper reporter at THE BEACON HILL NEWS. A seniors lunch entree was supposed be “fried chicken.” But it appeared in that week’s edition as “fried children.”
Bon appetit! (Did I spell that right? Oh, to hell with it!)

WOMAN (to man): This time let’s switch! I’ll have an orgasm! And you can fake it!
