Help me find this comic!
August 26, 2011 10:54 AM   Subscribe

I saw a comic online a few years ago; it featured a man surreptitiously putting nicotine patches on his girlfriend so that she went into withdrawal when she wasn't with him. Can you help me find it?

I can't remember much else about it, other than that it was pretty simple and, I think, in black and white. It's two guys talking, and one of them relates what I wrote above the fold.

It is the comic that goodnewsfortheinsane refers to here.

I would be shocked if it was not an http://xkcd.com/ comic.

I remember reading this...I think it was a Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal comic. That's as far as I can get you, unfortunately.

Yeah, that's definitely in line with SMBC humor, as opposed to XKCD.

Huh, I just found this, which I guess must be it. I don't read whatever comic it comes from, though, so it must have been a one-off link I clicked on. (I found it while googling nicotine patch girlfriend smbc; came up in a reddit thread.)

That's it! Thank you.

FWIW, that artwork doesn't look like SMBC to me at all, so it's almost certainly some other webcomic.

According to the copyright notice at the bottom of the image, it's from DirtPony.
