'How about a little ... *family growth*?' 'Dude, that's not until round two.'
Title text: 'How about a little ... *family growth*?' 'Dude, that's not until round two.'


This comic is a take on the common plots of pornographic movies. Hot sausage is a euphemism for penis, and the motif of a plumber is also common in porn. As in most xkcd comics, the plot is subverted and the characters end up playing Agricola (board game).

What does "Hush, you have starting player" mean? Djbrasier (talk) 00:07, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

Added an explanation, but left the incomplete-tag since I'm not a native speaker, and I'm not quite sure about the grammar, but I hope it's clear now, what the explanation of "Having starting player" is. Maybe someone could just re-read my text and correct it if needed. And than remove the tag. 09:00, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

It could also be that the three of them are strippers or something, there to work, but mixed up the house they're supposed to be at; after all, "Jones" is only slightly less common than "Smith" as a last name in America.
