Smithson Thus Far... ·

NigaiAmai Yume (nigaiamai_yume) says:

Sweetheart: Sane in an insane world.

Which gives her a SWEET secret advantage. Normally.

Doesn't seem to be helping the rampaging much. Hum.... Your motivation is: Make them bring back MST3K! Or at least have studios start hiring the guys to include legit RiffTrax on DvDS!!!

Go! Do good! Be righteous! And cute! 

David Shaw (trazoi) says: Oh lordy, you're telling me "Dancing with the Stars" is a global phenomenon?! I thought it was bad enough that it has been inflicted upon Australia, but now I know it's world-wide pandemic.
Vlad Taltos (flyingfish) says: Shaenon's got this thing for making the talking animal the sanest person in the room. See: Artie.
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Oh. This explains a bit.
Pete Bleackley (petethemadscientist) says: I think that Britain can claim responsibility for "Dancing with the Stars", but in its native habitat it's called "Strictly Come Dancing".
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

My opinion of Sweetheart just did a 180.  She ... she watches "Dancing With The Stars"...?


Paul-André Hamel (tek27) says:

There are many kind and many degrees of evil in the world... this is just one of many. And yes, there remains the possibility still for a righteous rampage... After all, while it is more common for evil to rampage, that doesn't mean that good CAN'T. Good just generally prefers not to because it isn't considered polite. Also, there is a distinct difference between mad science and evil genius.

 I think the best line for mad science I've found is actually from Pirates of the Carribean...

"You're MAD!" 

Jack Sparrow: "'course I am, or I'd probably never get this to work!"

K C (spotweld) says:

I get the wierd idea that Sweetheart should check out an old epsiode of Doctor Who for inspiration; specifically "The Happiness Patrol".

Bob Ulus (bobulus) says: Oh good lord...I'm picturing this all being the result of a Mad dogsled driver and giggling.
Aaron Shades (prof_tinker) says: ..... K C, now all I  can think of, for some reason, is Sweetheart biting The Master in the tuckus. *snerk*
Cameron Nielsen (cameroncn) says: Bryan. William Jennings Bryan.
NigaiAmai Yume (nigaiamai_yume) says:

This has little to do with Skin Horse, other than the fact Moustachio reminds me...

Just saw Wall-E. Pixar's finest, which is saying a LOT. Super sweet story, without that annoying sap aftertaste.

Plus a few robot rampages. Fun times. ^-^ 

Incog Neato (ghede) says:

Just saw Wall-E on sunday as well. The Pummel-bot was my favorite.

I think all of Unity's strategies involve a leg-sweep at some point. Floating Eyeball? "Look, Soothing Eyedrops!" BAM! Glue legs on it. WHAM! Leg-sweep.

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says: Cameron: Fixed.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

My new favorite catchphrase is now, " ... then WHAM!  Leg sweep!"  I shall use this to fix all of the world's problems.

G.W.Bush?  "Look!  A Nobel Peace Prize and a history book from the future that fell through a time warp and claims that you were the greatest president ever!"  Then WHAM!  Leg sweep!

Incog Neato (ghede) says:

Ed, have you no respect for the president? Are you some kind of Protoneoanarcholibertarifascist? You PNALF's are bringing this country down!

It would at least take his face on the cover of the history book to get him to look away. 

Rebecca Smith (epivet) says: The Chautauqua circuit does not need a rampage.  It has clients.  Seriously, when I worked at the original we had a regular who would hit employees with her cane!  Unless Sweetheart wanted to rampage against rich old people . . .
Jeffrey Channing Wells (channing) says: Cameron: Thanks.  That particular glurk was my fault.  Crikey, I practically had the Wikipedia entry right in front of me as I was writing and I STILL flubbed it...
Q. Pheevr (q-pheevr) says:

I tuned in after the glurk, whatever it may have been, had already been fixed. Accordingly, I interpreted Cameron Nielsen's comment as a random James Bond reference.


Note to Ed Gedeon: I think Bush would rather have a Nobel War Prize. He's big on being a Wartime President. 

Doug Wykstra (dougthehead) says: Best Scopes Monkey Trial reference EVER.

And that's saying a lot.  I mean, there are almost as many of those on the internet as there are comics about lions playing videogames.
NigaiAmai Yume (nigaiamai_yume) says: I am slightly disappointed that Sweetheart has caused problems in the office in the past. That should be Unity's and Tip's jobs.
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: (jaw drops)
Basil Jelly (basil_jelly) says: Ka-KLINK love it.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Today's band name: "People You've Never Met".  Their hit single: "Problems I Don't Have".

"Broken Receptionist" sounds more like a Cubist/Dadaist sculpture than a band name.

Justin Grubbs (the_purple_knight) says: Guess who's about to go on a rampage. I'll give you a hint. I don't know.
Martin Weld (ikari_gendo) says: Moustachio has a party line?
Michael Brewer (wusemajor) says: So, does this mean Moustachio was involved with The Village?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Would you believe I'm old enough that we actually *had* a party line when I was a kid?

"Bypass Springs" sounds like a bad resort area.

Joe Charneskie (mutant-sentry) says: Bypass Springs, the resort built on Arthur Dent's old place...
Jeremy Berg (pisceneanteater) says:

"someday we should find out why he does that"

Mmm. . .future plot line(s). . . 


Q. Pheevr (q-pheevr) says: Extension. James extension.
Aaron Shades (prof_tinker) says: Yeah, he can only handle so much input- for the sake of Gates, his memory is on WAX. It;s like asking a calculator how to spell 'abalony'.
Edwin Quantrall (reynard) says: Awww! Da poor robot fall down an' go "KLUNK!"
Rachel (admiralshazbot) says: zOMG SPELLING ERROR!
Brian Rogers (billionsix) says: hehe. Unity started off as the "Mell character" but she has her own style. She's a bit nicer than Mell ever was.
Cameron Nielsen (cameroncn) says: Unity has always had a different speaking style than Mell, anyway.
Rob (rrreed) says: Wonder if Ira's been zapped a few too many times with a neuralizer…
Andy Wetmore (efogoto) says: Well, Rob, it seems like he's being strobed with it.
Bob Ulus (bobulus) says: You can't imagine the physical toll that the twice-daily addrenaline-boosts of 'monster attacks' have had on Ira. How bad is it? He's actually 23.
NigaiAmai Yume (nigaiamai_yume) says:

The MiB have finally found the cure to the curse of Public Service. The Neuralizer Strobe removes the boredom commonly reported by workers by creating a "Goldfish Memory"* effect, while not resulting in any appriciatable decrease in productivity.

* Quotation marks due to the fact the Mythbusters have proven goldfish do in fact have a longer memory, and more productivity, then the current average Public Service Worker.

Rob (rrreed) says:

Maybe Ira used to be an air traffic controller, or a short order cook in New York city. Work like that is hell on long-term memory retention.

If not, the parallels between his security job for Skin Horse and an air traffic controller is frightening!

Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says: The goldfish in the next cubicle was promoted over me because of the blatant reverse speciesism of affirmative action. I do more work than he does and that incident with the saucepan was just an aberration.
Incog Neato (ghede) says:

Get him a tinfoil lined workhat!

That way, he can Recognize who is in the Public Service after the Week is over.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

In Unity's case, calling her "monster" and pointing a weapon at her probably counts as advanced flirting.

Hooray!  For!  Ex!  Cla!  Ma!  Tion!  Point!  S!

Justin Grubbs (the_purple_knight) says: Eventually he's going to shoot first, and then Unity will get mad. She'll probably Leg Sweep him.
Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says: Leg sweeps solve everything.
Aaron Shades (prof_tinker) says:

I'm just stunned at his willingness to defend his post- a security gaurd with dedication like that is incredible.

And Leg sweeps DO solve everything. Like pesky neighberhood assosiations....

Justin Grubbs (the_purple_knight) says: Jimmies? Why? Why must you use this hated name for sprinkles?
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: "Rainbow Jimmie" sounds like a hippie folk singer from the 1960's.  "Rainbow Sprinkle" sounds like a gay porn star.
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says: Mattel should drop Barbie and go with "Annie Sprinkle" dolls, then introduce her kid sister "Rainbow" for Christmas.
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says: I love the calm simplicity of Unity's expression in panel 3 - it's the perfect face for politely handing someone their you-couldn't-rampage-your-way-out-of-a-wet-paper-bag
Sean Duggan (duggansc) says: Ed: Different cultures I guess... I hear rainbow jimmies and I think of the aftereffects of a nut shot or a bad STD.
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Heh heh.
