Ever noticed that when things get too realistic and serious, Jeph breaks the tension with something wacky like the DoKYA or Roombitos?

Yay!  Rocket Roomba kittens!   :-D  I can't blame Jeph for injecting some levity between the drama.  Interesting that the "mommy" Roomba is pink/purple -- or maybe she's a Womba!

Looks like Hanners' walls are gonna be even cleaner than before.

How do you know that's not Roompop?  Just because it's pink doesn't mean it's a girl, just ask Pintsize!

True enough -- and do we really know exactly how the Roomba's mate?  That stuff all happened off-screen as I recall . . .

Looking at it again, regardless of actual gender, it really does look like a Woomba -- ahem: http://www.hulu.com/watch/70317/saturday-night-live-woomba -- to me.   :wink:  Though the sizing's a bit off . . .

I notice that Roomba and his brood have evolved, and their wings relocated from the fuselage to the engine cowling. Hanners' expression, priceless.

Akima, you are very detail oriented.

(I noticed it too).

Winslow did accept the Roomba as a guy, as did Pintsize in 1057, at least if their pronoun choices are to be taken literally.

The look on Hanners' face in panel #4 was really well done, you can almost hear the screeching record-stop noise and "errh?" in her head.

Also, I like Hannelore growing out her hair again, I think she would look good with longer hair (again?), despite her OCD.

Hanners hasn't freaked out yet. Probably plenty of storage space left in her inner freak out containment unit, thought I wish she'd do something about it before it reaches critical mass. Oh wait, she was able to discharge awhile ago when she told Marigold that she's not taking of her shit anymore, so I guess the world is safe... for now...

Her freak out level is quite different nowadays.  Besides, most of this is just a distraction to keep her from going OCD critical and/or have a creepy Hanners episode.

I worry about the potential killing spree in her head, but even more about what that means for her possible relationships. She's going to have a time finding a guy that believes she doesn't meet the required value of crazy, as in "Don't stick your dick in crazy."  She may be functional, but sitting right at the cliff's edge.

today+100 or so: Marigold returns the favor & gives Hanners a verbal smackdown to shock her bring her back to the here & now.

I am so calling dibs on using Panel 3 for the creation of an animated forum avatar!

Quote from: Akima

I noticed that too. At first, I was just gonna chalk it up to natural mutation. I mean, if people can make models of the Starship Enterprise fly and swim, then jet-powered flying Roombots shouldn't be an issue.

Although, I will comment that those had better be electric ducted fan engines and not proper jet turbines, otherwise, they're spewing exhaust and unburnt fuel all over the Hanner-apartment.

Seems like everybody's having kittens.

No, because Jeph loves to draw his characters blushing. ;)  :angel:

  I don't think he's ever drawn a male character blushing though.  Now that I think about it, do guys even blush?  I've only seen girls do it.
Yes he has. Sven did it when he realized his "little guy" was "peeking out of his boxers" in front of his new intern.

Wait, poop? Unless I missed something, expresso is a liquid. Sure it's brown/black and all, but still liquid. And I would totally try it if they called it Tyrannosaur Tinkles. Tyrannosaur turds, not so much.

That coffee does indeed taste excellent. Shame about the 100 dollars a pound or so, though. (Before you ask, my Aunt has an occasionally awesome- and extremely well compensated by her former career- friend.)

Hmm, I suppose it could be considered Tyrannosaur poop if said Tyrannosaur was suffering from a fair bit of . . . digestive distress.  O_o  I have heard of such, erm, non-solid intestinal output being termed "buttpee," though I'm not sure that's an improvement.  Having said all that, I see marketing possibilities IRL and within the strip.  If Faye is willing to have her sculpture mass-produced.

Speaking of mass-production, though, keep the Roombas away from that thing or we'll have rocket-powered Tyrannosaurs who will suck a room clean and then poop out a mix of espresso and dust.  Bleah.  And if someone gives it an AnthroPC brain . . .  But it's too small for that, right?  RIGHT?

(Also, will we one day see a Dromiceiomimus that "poops" chai?)

Considering that reptiles, dinosaurs and birds eliminate all their waste (as well as carry out reproductive functions) through a single opening called a cloaca, it is safe to assume that any brown liquid flowing from said cloaca would be less than appetizing.

Of course it is equally safe to assume that the entire purpose of this post is for me to use the word cloaca as many times as possible.


Cloaca.

which brings us to the results of the poll:

Question:      What's worse than being punched in the dick.
   Nothing.                                                                 - 11 (13.6%)
   The Number 28.                                                      - 6 (7.4%)
   Making a stupid '69' joke during pillow talk.                  - 15 (18.5%)
   Not telling your boyfriend about the secret menu.        - 8 (9.9%)
   Lot's of stuff actually.                                               - 41 (50.6%)

Total Voters: 81

So it's fairly clear that the denizens of this forum have a good perspective that genital punching, while bad, is not the worst thing in the world. Whether you have a penis, a vagina or a cloaca, getting punched in the junk isn't the end of the world.

Sass the new poll you hoopy froods!

I want a deluxe expresso-saur model that also transforms into DinoBot Grimlock.

I really think the Coffeesaurus Rex should change it's facial expression while pooping.

I believe men can actually die from shock from being struck in the genitals. So its pretty bad.
Have to hit it pretty hard though. Mmm.

I'm a little disappointed, really.  I was expecting smething more... abstract. 

And more frightening. 

And less utilitarian.

Having said all that, I see marketing possibilities IRL and within the strip.  If Faye is willing to have her sculpture mass-produced.
Unlikely, as people who actually work with electricly powered hot water handling machinery tend to like to have it with a wide, stable base, UNLIKELY to tip over under normal, or abnormal use leading to scalds and other disfiguring injuries.

The Espressosaurus has a very narrow base of just its feet and a very long, easily tipped body, the quintessential opposite of a wide, stable base.

Maybe if Faye mounted it to a large metal plate or wooden board, it could get a UL listing, but then that would take up a much larger space in the carton, resulting in greater shipping costs and...

I'm over-analyzing this, aren't I?

I never knew Faye was so mechanicly inclined and inventive. Man! The only QC girl I have no similarities to whatsoever is Dora. Maybe if I actually started my own business, I'd be the epitome of QC womanhood.
