Title: WCDT strips 4636 to 4640 (18th to 22nd October 2021)
Post by: BenRG on 18 Oct 2021, 02:00
Okay, as no-one else has done it, I  guess I've got to step up.

A spontaneous poll: What consequences might Claire's new job bring? Oddly enough, I think that all of the suggestions I make are probable in different degrees but, if I had to choose one, it would be that Marten starts hanging out at CoD again. It's just a feeling I have that Jeph wants to rediscover some of the old magic.

What do you all think?

There are so many jokes I want to make when "thanks for the tip" was said in the same conversation that mentions blowjobs.

But I am better than that. I think.

Boundaries!

I think that not only Martin but also Elliot will start hanging out at CoD more often. 
I miss Martin interacting with his male friends and he did used to have interactions with Elliot.

Was the problem all about Beepatrice's lack of artistic talent or was this the AI version of a Freudean slip? With Beepatrice, I assume the former but can't rule out the latter.

Today's strip reminds me of when I was on the Toronto Pride board in 2000.  We had the loveliest logo of dancers forming 2000... then when we started printing them out in greyscale for the volunteer badges the colourful pattern turned into boobs.

Recommendation, run any artwork past Pintsize first

Oh no. Accidental clanker not-quite-porn.

EDIT: 'Clanker' is the colloquial term for someone sexual attracted to robots. It's usually not accompanied with the same derision that 'furry' tends to get used with. At least not from what I've seen.
[Sidebar: turns out a lot of folks have a thing for Starscream. Lindsay Ellis even did a video on that specifically.]

A reminder (if one was needed) that, if Claire an Clinton lack chill, they are amateurs compared to Hannelore in this field!

Wait, why is Dora shouting what I'm assuming is an abort code? Most importantly who is she shouting it to? The obvious answer is Station but the post-human sci-fi thinker in me can't help but wonder whether it's at Hannelore. At what point was she hypnotically (or maybe cybernetically) programmed with a shutdown code? What else did Station put in Hanners' head when he put in the implant 'phone?

The joke is a comical exaggeration of how Hannelore feels about making mistakes that she'd thought she could avoid making. She's so horrified, her first reaction is to end it all (and go out with a rather impressive, literal bang) rather than face the realisation. I think that's all there is to the joke.

EDIT: YMMV whether the joke is "Hannelore sure overreacts here", or whether Hanners herself is making a joke. If it's the latter, it sure seems like a dangerous way to joke around, if Station doesn't catch on...
