I'm guessing she'll give her apartment a good cleaning, but not going operating room sterile.  Her breakthroughs may be enough that she won't feel it's absolutely necessary.

Sterilizing dogs and other domestic animals is a fairly routine procedure these days -- but that's not exactly what the poll is talking about, is it?

So, it appears that Claire is being tossed on the horns of a dilemma! It also looks like she is at risk of suddenly wearing out her welcome with her mother! Cosmo is Mrs A's Good Girl, not Claire's. The solution is obvious, of course: Marten is going to have to get Claire her own dog as a graduation present!

Meanwhile, a comment on Patreon makes me wonder: How well does Claire know Hannelore? She'd know her as one of the baristas at CoD but Hanners seems to have stopped just 'dropping in' to Marten and Faye's apartment before Claire moved in, so I'm wondering if it is a case of "Marten's friend who has become my friend through mutual connection".

I suspect it's about how clean can you actually get a dog without harming it.

There are two things that I deeply admire in today's comic: Firstly, Jeph using Faye to officially adopt the fanon nickname of 'Tannelore'. Second is Faye and Bubbles's ability to interpret Hanners's unspoken request so accurately. Hannelore's issues may prevent her from ever enjoying (or even wanting) physical intimacy but that doesn't stop her from enjoying it from second hand. The fact that Faye and Bubbles are just being silly may only add to how heartwarming this is!

Am I the only one who has noticed that Faye and Bubbles have become one of those couples who unconsciously mimic eachother?

I imagine she'll continue checking in on old cast members her friends. And maybe get Winslow some therapy so he doesn't become a hikikomori.

Yes, all the squeeeeeee. HEAD SMOOCHES!

I, for one, am 110% on board for any Faybles strip with PDA.


"Tannelore" is pretty nifty, but I'm still working on a portmanteau with "melanocytes" or "melanin".

"Melanilore", maybe?


And yeah, poor Winslow might need some help. Or at least a break from traveling. When he first got his new body, he seemed to start worrying about silly things and Hannelore was concerned he might have picked up some of her neuroses.

I'm so glad Hanners got rid of all those pesky personality traits. All that OCD and nervousness was just giving her way too much uniqueness. She's much more relatable as someone without any character flaws.

I think that I'm beginning to see what happened to Hannelore: First, she gets to know the cute little Yak-lets. Then one of the cows needs help because of a breech presentation birth (a serious problem with ungulates from what little I know of  them) and Hannelore was the only person available to help. She couldn't let the cute widdle baby die! So, she had to drive herself completely out of her comfort zone and keep going, even though her brain must have been screaming (and she might have been too) to save a cute little life.

I think that there could easily be a funny consequence of this anecdote. At some point in the future, one of Hannelore's friends (Cossette, maybe?) goes into labour in CoD and Hannelore tries to take charge. It turns out that most of the lessons she learned in Mongolia do not cross over the ungulate/primate boundary very well.

Well, Hanners' aversion to bodily fluids IN GENERAL is probably now less.

Oh, I think that they are probably worse but she's proved to herself that, if properly motivated, she can power her way through them. She then probably needs to be pressure-hosed all over at least ten times to be clean again. She'll do it to herself if no-one else will do so out of this silly concern that it will tear off her skin!

Yeah, the travils of bovine assisted birth in that book are really good for wiping away any illusions you may have about the romance of the farmer's life!

Plus: maybe her aversion is to human body fluids. Those of an animal may be a completely different thing. Someone who can‘t stand a human touch can maybe cuddle an animal without any problems.

Me too.  I remember more than one occasion (maybe incorrectly...it's been a long time) of Harriot "shoulder deep" in an assisted birth.  Does that count as method acting?

And now I can't get the theme song out of my head.

Multiple occasions, yes. But I can’t say for sure if it was a real cow or a realistic prop - we only saw the back end of the cows in those scenes, and they were all pretty dimly lit, so it’s possible that the prop department had just made something that could pass for the real thing without requiring the actor to shove his arm up inside an actual cow.

If a combat veteran like Bubbles is disgusted while Hannelore is unaffected then she’s truly come a long way.  I hope she at least wore gloves because regardless of how gory it is the real danger is cross contamination.

Eh, I definitely know vets who have shrugged off dead bodies (human and animal), falling into sewage, vomit, and the like-but who cringe at saliva, mould, and various other grossness. I mean, she's come a long way for sure, but combat vets are just people.

Reading the first half of this, following the All Creatures Great and Small discussion above, I initially parsed "vets" as "veterinarians", and it wasn't until I got to "combat vets" that I realised you meant "veterans". Then I had to go back and read it again and it did make a little more sense that way :)

Yes, and she may have some kind of personality quirk like Roko who gets light headed at the sight of AI surgery. 

While it will be nice to see Hannelore in story again perhaps she should thing of a new line of work.  Her job was never about money, but just forcing herself out of her comfort zone.  She's gone way beyond that in the last few months so perhaps she's outgrown it.  Maybe she'll get involved with Roko's charity organization.  She's certainly more organized than Beepatrice.  Of course just about everyone, but Melon is too.

You know, today's strip tells me just how 'small trader' Union Robotics really is. They keep boxes of random second-hand spare parts, broadly categorised according to description. No packaged and branded items (these could be ordered, I suppose, but only with a few days' lead time and advance payment). No shiny and complicated diagnostic tools. The closest they likely come to that is hooking the customer into Faye's laptop! Faye and Bubbles are right at the bottom of the pile and that's why they struggle (and, as Bubbles pointed out, Faye is not always eating full meals). Half of their working day probably involves working out what of their random boxes-o-bits actually fit their customers!

However, more than anything else, today's strip tells me that Jeph has visited Northampton and learned that his former hometown has become ever-more hipster!

Northampton actually reached peak hipster-ness years ago. We had a recent spike with the opening of the first legal weed shop in western Massachusetts, but that’s not going to be sustainable. Our excess hipsters have been spilling over into Easthampton, attracted by lower rents and an abundance of converted old textile mills (which make outstanding artist and yoga studios.)

This is no fantasy.  Those small, non-corporate repair shops are where you find scarce parts for models of all kinds of victims of planned obsolescence, some of which are actually still quite serviceable.   It's the kind of place you go when you're not particularly geeky and don't want to climb the learning curve with a new computer and the cat knocked your beloved laptop off the kitchen table shattering the shit out of the screen.

You've been turned away from place after place with, "They don't make those anymore," and finally hear those lovely words, "Yeah, I have one back here someplace." from the proprietor of a very local place.  It may take them a few days to find it, but when they do the repair takes maybe an hour.

They are saviors to the not-so-wealthy.

When my laptop took a nasty spill earlier this year, I needed to replace both the screen, and the upper part of the chassis.  I knew that all of the internals were working, after plugging in an external keyboard, mouse, and display, so I figured that was worth saving.  Only one repair shop in town would even touch it in the condition that it was in.

Foot in hand box? *chucks*
Yep.  Drags a right foot out of the box and tosses a left foot next frame.  Were there two feet in the hands box?

What makes you think it's a left foot in the last frame? Seems like the top of the same right foot of the 3rd frame.

They need a nemesis competitor, something like "SP* Robotic Repair."  There are dark rumors about androids going there for help and being maimed, with body parts attached in the wrong places.

At least it's not Tyrell corp.  Those things break after the four year warranty runs out.

I was interpreting the pattern below the toes as the ball of the foot as seen from the bottom (no toenails), which would then make that a left foot.  If you interpret that as the top of the foot instead, then yes, it's a right foot, probably even the same righty as seen in panel 3.  I suppose either interpretation is supportable, as the panel 3 foot clearly shows no toenails on the top of the foot.

Now that I think about it, does Bubs even have toes?
