There's a difference between this comic and vgcats' one.

In this comic he get the girl, THEN worry about the cake, on vgcats he only cares about the cake.

IT'S NOT STEALING, IT'S RESEARCH!

The "lusty woman, clueless guy" scenario happens more than one might think though.

And anime uses it pretty heavily because stupid/clueless/oblivious people are funny.

You could entertain yourself for quite some time pushing idiots down the 'up' escalator.

You are not an official gaming webcomic until you've done jokes about:

Cake
Navi
Jill sandwiches

The funny part of this comic is that all the commentators seem to think that VG Cats was the first to make this joke.

Seriously people, this joke has been around as long as Peach has been handing out "cakes".
So yeah

This joke generally has three permutations:

1. Mario misinterprets innuendo as a genuine offer of pastry.
2. Mario misinterprets a genuine offer of pastry as innuendo.
3. Straight-up Portal reference.

I've seen a lot more type 2 & 3 than type 1.

Seriously people... the Lusty Woman/Clueless Man joke is as old as dirt. Like 1/2 of all anime uses it, and Mario/Peach jokes have been going on since the first game was released. Cake was added to the jokes the instant Mario 64 came out. Its not possible to steal this joke, shut up already.

I love Peach's expression in the first panel, and of course I laughed at it(and then more at your comment, indeed.)

But I can't ignore that VG Cats made BOTH jokes years ago.

Still lovely, though.

vgcats and nerfnow aren't hte only ones to paly on the whole "cake" thing either. Go look up Yahtzee's/Zero Punctuation review of the most recent mario galaxy game. He does the cake joke as well. Still funny though.

Yes, Will, VG cats did do a Portal/"Cake euphemism for sex" joke.

Cake has eternally been a euphanism in the Mario Games for... you know...

On occasions she has to widely spread her "Cake" for her larger captors...

That someone requested the VG cats version, here it is.

I dont think NN stole the idea, I think just two artists had the same idea (its a good idea, and as they say great minds think alike)

The cake is a lie actually originates from SM64, where you never actually got the cake.

You can have this... "cream pie", though.

That Yahtzee's a Spy!

Anyway, I liked this one, and I gotta say, Peach's face kinda reminds me of Etna at some points during the first Disgaea. Pic for reference here (Bottom right): http://www.creativeuncut.com/gallery-01/art/dis-etna2.jpg

I am amused by peach's 'rapeface'. (Or, more accurately, her 'I'ma screw you now' face)

And metaphor in panel two. Oh what wacky shenanigans we can portray with metaphor.

I am hugely disappointed that Nerf Now has failed to live up to the high standards of originality which I have come to expect from webcomics. For shame Nerf Now.

Oh whoops
/sarcasm off

With that being said... Nerfnow still updates much faster than vgcats and could probably make the same jokes and no lose would happen

let me point out that this CAN be interprited in at least two ways. considering that ir would be a reference to portal, the correct interpritation would be much more child friendly.

@GuardianTempest: Its sad but true. Mario is just a naive little plumber.

I'm surprised that he still wants cake after "cake". Be happy with what you get, you gluten!

Why does he keep his hat and gloves on? Or at least the hat. We've seen mario without his hat before.

I love it. Either Peach is a sex fiend, and Mario doesn't care about sex, or Mario just wants nookie but Peach never puts out.

Oh Peach, haven't you learnt yet. Mario just wants a cake. Sex is just too much for him, just like Shirou Emiya. ^_^

Dear Mario,
Please come to the castle. I've baked a cake for you.
-Peach, Super Mario 64

If you think this is just a portal joke, guess again. Also, multiple comics making the same pop-culture reference? SHOCKING!

Yeah, but this Peach is actually cute compared to that scary woman that VGcats put out.
