Title text: I have a thing for corrupt women.
Cueball's mention of how porn did not scar him is a reference to a lot of testimony on how porn has negatively affected people's lives. Of course, the porn really did affect the way he looked at women. Due to dial-up being of such a slow speed, videos that needed to be transmitted via dial-up had to be compressed using a lossy format, which reduces file sizes substantially but also causes heavy data losses; the result being that the new decompressed file would not be of the same quality of the original uncompressed file. In this case, the lossy format eats away at the detail of the picture, which, during decompression, results in blocky artifacts in an attempt to "reconstruct" the lost data. Since he associated blocky pictures with arousal, he seems to have trouble enjoying "the friendship of the thighs" with his comparatively hi-fi girlfriend. In other words, the porn really did scar him after all.
The title text expands on this, referencing file corruption. It is also a pun on female "corruption," or a woman's awareness of her sexuality.
- [Cueball is hunched up at a computer. A circle surrounds him; the rest of the panel is black. The text is written in a square panel above the white circle.]
- I shouldn't have watched all that porn as a teenager.
- [The text is above the picture in a square frame. A computer screen is shown. It displays an on-line video player, with what appears to be a Cueball-like guy performing cunnilingus on a Megan-like girl. Five other windows (maybe ads) are also visible, though what they depict is not clear. One of them has readable text above a picture (maybe of a flesh light). The rest of the text, including a heading at the top, is unreadable. There is picture with a lady with "big" hair holding her arms out. She has two black blotches on each side of her body. Maybe representing her breast, perhaps in a bra.]
- It's not that it scarred me.

- It's just that we had dial-up.
- Modem: 14.4 kbps
- And now I'm stuck with a fetish.
- [Cueball and Megan are in bed together. The text above the picture is in a square frame.]
- For video compression.
- Cueball: Can you try to look... blockier?
