Adam and Eve
Abel and Steve would've been fine! I like Steve!
Title text: Abel and Steve would've been fine! I like Steve!

[edit] Explanation

This comic is a take on the anti-homosexual refrain, used often at those sorts of rallies "It was Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve". This refrain is used to support the definition of marriage as between a man and a woman because in the old testament God created a man and a woman to start the human race. Adam and Eve are in the story in the Bible of the creation (Book of Genesis), and are the first pair of humans, created by God.

Adam walks in on Eve having sexual relations with Abel, who is Adam's son, which turns the joke from a homosexual one into an incest one.

In the title text, Adam continues that he would have preferred walking in on Abel and Steve because Steve is not his wife.

[edit] Transcript

Adam: It's Adam and Eve, not Abel and Eve!!
Adam was freaked out by what he'd just walked in on.

No problem, the ten commandments didn't exist back then. Davidy22[talk] 13:18, 18 February 2013 (UTC)

There's a "forbidden fruit" joke somewhere in here. Alpha (talk) 20:35, 23 February 2013 (UTC)

Missing from the explanation here is that Abel logically must have slept with his own mother because, according to the Biblical account, there were in fact no other women in existence. 66.224.70.107 00:22, 22 March 2013 (UTC)

Actually, it is generally acknowledged that Adam and Eve had children, including daughters, who were not mentioned in the bible. Remember, God marked the brow of Cain to show all the people he encountered that he was a fratricide; where did all those people come from? 74.213.186.41 13:56, 1 April 2013 (UTC)
I'm adamant that it was barbecue leftovers. --Qwach (talk) 03:01, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
