One laugh track away from being Big Bang Theory's new character. Kind of fascinating in the solidity of its boringness in the face of presumably complete creative freedom.
Seven Arts/H8 Red
Whether elements in Least I Could Do were used for The Dating Guy or not, the net result was Teletoon's yearly dose of Canadian filler content, and a vanity project/spec pilot from a company whose animation credits are this and Ctrl-Alt-Del: The Animated Series. Literally nothing good came out of those Teletoon development meetings.
And when he's not doing strips where the joke is ha ha the character is a jerk but totally cool ha ha the jokes tend towards such topical matters as this:
Ha ha, yes, the same joke every other grinning idiot on the internet made within a few minutes of the announcement from Amazon.com.

Here's part two. The credits feature a few names I didn't expect to see.
Ugh the character design. The womens' faces are identical. They're all pinup boob zombies and the dude is dane cook.
This is one of the most awful things I have seen this year.
Feel even worse: fans of the utterly shit comic on which this is based collectively paid 5,141 on kickstarter to make this happen.
The budget for an episode of adventure time is under 10k
Do yourself a favor and leave annotations on.
The only good use of annotations in human history.
Are webcomics still a thing?
More of a thing than newspaper comics, at this point.
Whenever Rain's not on screen all the other character's keep asking "Where's Rain?".
The theme song is perfect. It's like a statement of purpose for the permanently stunted, misogynistic, responsibility-fearing manchildren who funded this thing. Just add, "BUT THEN FEMINISTS RUINED EVERYTHING" to the hook and you've got an anthem for the MRA movement.
The main character comes off as what a spastic nerd would imagine a "cool" guy is like and all of the sex jokes come off like one of those spastic nerds trying to convince everyone he's a frequent sexhaver "YEAH I LIKE TO TOUCH THE BOOBS BEFORE I PUT MY PENIS INSIDE A LADY WITH THE VAGINA AND EVERYTHING!!!!"
Made it 1 minute, 15 seconds in. This is, remarkably, even more cringeworthy than CAD: The Animated Series, and the comic it's based on is almost more cringeworthy.
Five for fucking evil (albeit, fantastic annotations).
Characters in webcomics with the fullest head of hair always are written by the baldest dorks.
Hah...I couldn't even tell that was supposed to be a joke at the beginning. The credits just kick in "Oh wait, what? That was an opener? Ok then , I guess." and I like the CAD thing of drawing, like, 3 characters, and then just palette swapping them or gender swapping them to make your entire cast.
Least I Could Douchebag
LICD just might be the worst webcomic ever.
CAD might corner unlikeable lolvideogames manchild protagonists
Sinfest might corner jokeless storyless radical feminism
Shortpacked and Dobson might corner Strawmanville
Questionable Content might corner aggressively bland hipster Three's Company
but something about LICD makes me hate it more than all of those. I think it's that whereas something like CAD appeals to dorks, LICD appeals to the Tucker Max's who genuinely believe they're the shit.
The webcomic I hate the most is probably Kit n' Kay Boodle.
Yiffing is forever, don't you know that, Homer?
And Sinfest also gets an honorable mention for the longest-running rip-off of Bill Waterson's style.
Yeah, I know, I just kinda figured the author would have run out of ideas and given up by now... it's been well over a decade now. I mean, how many different ways can you restate the plot, "WE ARE FAT NAKED FURRIES WHO ARE INTO SWINGING, INCEST, AND CUB PORN"?
I guess that's a rhetorical question, since evidently the answer is, endlessly.
And hey! Guess what else I just discovered? Accidental Centaurs is still going, too!
Oh, and what was the really angsty one with the muscle-bound pig? Or maybe he was a wolf? Where he beats up some other furry dude, shoves him in the trunk of his car, and then rapes him in the ass?
Or that one with the Space Orcs who all have sex with the author's self-insert character?
And ooooh, Sinfest. Wasn't that the one with Wasabi the Pimp Ninja, and Hobbes recast as a slutty raver girl? I remember all my Sluggy Freelance friends loved that one back in highschool; is it still going?
Oh shit, Sluggy Freelance is still going, too.
I guess if Garfield could survive for thee decades under the constant watchful gaze of newspaper editors, then literally any webcomic can survive indefinitely in a world of HTML and vanity web publishing.
Yup Sinfest is STILL going, only in recent years it's morphed into a radical feminism platform to the point of constant self-parody. Some prominent characters are a trio of girls who ride around on big wheel trikes and beating random men to death with sticks as a way of sticking it to the patriarchy. Also the porn industry is run by Satan and men try to trick their girlfriends into reading Cosmo? You know because guys LOVE it when their girl hits them with a Cosmo boyfriend quiz.
The author has also been caught ripping off exact strips from Bloom County.
Actually the worst might be Dominic Deegan. A 12 year long pile of shit starring a mary sue where all the evil jock characters end up dying violent bloody deaths. The crowning moment was when the hero was FORCED to rape an orc girl in order to save her. No seriously, the plot was that an orc girl was going to be put to death unless a man claimed her so he HAD to rape her to save her life. Of course she goes on to fall in love with him once she realizes her silly mistake of saying, "no".
I don't even know how to accept the fact that Kit n' Kay Boodle is still going. I wonder if he's still fantasizing about his mother in law.
Speaking of mother-in-laws, is Jack still going? No, never mind, I don't want the answer.
Jack is still going and it's been spinning it's wheels with the same story arc for like 4 years. It even recently emerged an audio bit from when the author's wife called to Loveline to talk about how he's a borderline rapist.
And yet still we have no Dinosaur Comics show.
MY EYES. MY EARS.
Let's just break down the first joke from a writer's perspective.
If he doesn't know what 'executive cream' means why did he tell her to do it?
If he didn't tell her to do it, why is the line 'you want me to..' and delivered like a 'are you sure' question?
What does she hit him with? The printer? I had to watch it again . I thought it was a stereo system or something. In the last shot that established the printer it was white. Now it's black? Shouldn't the printer have been set up in the frame better to read in the next shot for the pay off, and anyway, wouldn't hitting him with the paper (playing his joke against himself) have been funnier from a story perspective and visually?
And then the goo goo dolls start to play. I've seen all I need to.
jesus christ the nose is the least expressive part of the human face unless you're making a joke out of it why is it the most prominent feature of his designs, none of his characters can show us they feel anything because they are all nose.
The entire episode is based on the throw away joke about it being "have sex with a clown day" near the beginning?
