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.

It makes it better in _some_ aspects...

The speech balloons in today's comic do not have tails. Are the characters communicating with their minds? Or is it 'guess who is talking' day? ;)

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.
