original_post:_4/6/2001________ Is this the first strip that I use a curse word? It's certainly not the last. I never said Striptease was going to be PG rated or kid friendly. But that didn't mean I was going to just go around dropping F-bombs. Just like in comedy, you have to know when to use them. For me, if it doesn't add to the story of what is happening or show a real and honest reaction, then you don't need to use bad words. In this case, Max knows this is bad, and he's just reacting accordingly.
