Tim McCormack April 17, 2019 at 9:57 am 3 years ago “That-a-way, very fast” presumably. Rex Vivat April 17, 2019 at 12:46 am 3 years ago Look, knowing Medi-bot, that’s kind of an important clarification to make. Mic April 17, 2019 at 1:43 am 3 years ago “Very well. I hope you don’t mind a mechanical potty-bot for an arm! What, you didn’t specify.” Jude April 17, 2019 at 11:59 pm 3 years ago Hey, if he got a potty-bot, then he could babysit Emily’s and Pierrot’s baby! Wait. No one’s insane enough to let him near their baby.

Justice demands CAKE!!” Owen Smith April 17, 2019 at 9:31 am 3 years ago Mr. Zorilla really is a complete dick. TB April 17, 2019 at 1:12 pm 3 years ago Not so much a dick, as just somebody with no governor on his brain-mouth connection. When you look at his overall character, he actually has a lot more basic virtues than a lot of the others we’ve met in this strip. You wouldn’t invite him to a party, but he wouldn’t cheat you at cards, either. He might screw up an easy hand, though. Make sure he partners with someone else. The closest one to Mr. Zorilla in character type is probably Emily, who is basically also an unpleasant piece of work who is solid gold at her core. Kind of deep in the core, but it’s there. Unlike Mr. Zorilla, though, Emily is frighteningly competent. Peter Rogan April 17, 2019 at 2:00 pm 3 years ago On the other hand, could we really tell the difference between psychotic Mauricio and his dad, now? They both are prisoners of their own worst impulses to do good. One can hardly imagine the horrors to follow should they join forces. And where did Hypock get herself off to? Is she still keen on bumping off >ahem< "Mr. O'Kingly"? andreas April 17, 2019 at 5:40 pm 3 years ago “Old man, these are rather unusual specifications for addons!” “Why, it seems standard issue to me: powered eggbeater, mixer, melted chocolate dispenser, integrated oven, food thermometer, alarm clock, frosting dispenser, and retractable cake lifter” “You sure you don’t want any lasers?” “Good point, they could speed things up a bit…” D April 17, 2019 at 6:34 pm 3 years ago Took me a second, but nice transition from rotating blade to hand. I had a brain blatt moment where I wondered why he was wearing a 1st baseman’s glove? Leave a Reply to Tim McCormack Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
