Smithson Thus Far... ·


Shaenon: A commission piece. Man, people love cobras. I'm going to put cobras in all my comics from now on.

Channing: Well, they love your cobras, at least. Actual living cobras might generate a lower overall happiness quotient in the audience. This is frikkin' adorable, but sadly, this isn't one of my better punchlines, as it sort of requires you to have participated in an e-mail exchange leading up to the strip in question about what Japanese sexual classification Dr. Lee falls into. Still, it amused me, and presumably amused at least one other person, and that means Joke Success.

John Sears (john_sears) says:

I think I like the grey cobra the best.  I have no idea why.  It's a nice grey.

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "Here Comes The Rain Again", Eurythmics)

I smell librarian,
Hiding in the blouse of a Ph.D.,
Soaking up the heat of a brainy lady ...

I want to crawl up and down your sleeve,
I want to wrap all around your hair,
I want to come up through your cleavage ...
Does it tickle there?

So, baby cobras hug
Because she's warm!
Blouse is snug
And fits her form!
With a shrug,
She'll bear their swarm!

This swell librarian
Uses scary words like "evacuee" ...
If she gives a hug, then we won't be 'fraidy ...

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

I notice that for once the cobra's hoods are visible!



Edwin Quantrall (reynard) says:

@ Shaenon: It wasn't just the baby cobras (though, yes, they *are* adorable), it was the way that Dr. Lee was so, um, *casual* about having this snake crawling around inside of her clothing and then commenting on the experience that makes it funny (in an absurdist way) to me.

@ JCW: Oh, yes! *DEFINITELY* "Joke Success"!

Woof Arf (woofnarf) says:

Dear Shaenon:

Have you considered a job in public relations or marketing?

You have a singular gift of making the otherwise questionable and bizarre so adorable (assorted genetically enhanced animals, zombies, killer robtos, a grandmotherly hive entity, ex-Russian spies, mad scientists, cross-dressing sex maniacs, etc.,)

This comics gig is just to keep yourself busy, isn't it?  You're just being paid off by the CIA for NOT getting inovlved with any type of PR, aren't you?

It's a gift, I tell ya! A GIFT!!!!

Nate Cull (natecull) says:

She's actually on the CIA payroll right now because Skin Horse itself *is* a psyop.

Remember when they tested all that LSD back in the 50s under MKULTRA? Well, some of those guys stayed on. The intelligence biz in the 60s and 70s got a little... well...

Let's just say our Middle East coverage might have slipped, but we're *still* well defended against sentient rainbows made of music that can totally steal your mojo.


Shane Wegner (shanewegner) says:

I see how it is. An asian hottie, so of course she's wrapped up in tentacles in no time! SPECIESIST!!

t n (fernblatt) says:

I thought the comment of "smells like a librarian" (here and during the "nuclear incident" at at Annex One) was a Read Or Die reference -- I mean, back in Episode 34848, Strip 4 of the archive, Dr Lee and Nick are commenting about avatars when Dr Lee mentions the time she dropped off the first Pixiedust console, and Nick recalls her as "… the Yomiko Readman type… " etc.

I didn't recally any R.O.D. references during that story arc, but hopefully I wasn't the only one that got it. LOL

t n (fernblatt) says:


Personally. I though it was splendiferous reference as opposed to "not one of your best."
