    Hey, was this inspired by the comments on the Oct 13th strip?

    Wow, still nobody here…… helllooooo?


    I was thinking…. when Optimus gets a broken joint, a leaky valve or a screw loose, he can just go to the mechanic…


    No trips to the hospital, or long recoveries, or even, in the latter case (as I well know), being incurable.

    Doesn’t his walker need all-terrain tires for Cybertron?

    Re: Nobody here.

    We’ve been stunned into silence by your facility with puns.

    Actually, we’ve been kidnapped by elderly Decepticons.

    Something I’ve always wondered about: why don’t walker manufacturers make legs that don’t slip so people don’t have to put ugly tennis balls on them?

    Be cool if the walker was a Decepticon.

    What’s an Optimus?

    What’s a Cybertron?

    What’s a Decepticon?

    Did this Mechanical Marvel start life in a stroller?

    Because they also make the tennis balls.

    Do you have an incurable aliment, Sunshine? That is what you seem to have alluded to. Not trying to get too personal, just you struck my curiosity.

    Forgive me if it is something you don’t want to talk about and pretend I didn’t ask.

    Newer high end ones are made so they won’t slip. The wheels have hand brakes, like you see on a bike and a make-shift seat if the person gets tired.

    Seven years ago, following a surgery I had (okay, I was suppose to) to walk with a walker (one of the original without even wheels) for a couple months. I hated it. I didn’t have the tennis balls, but I usually just picked it up and carried it, much to my wife’s chagrin. He said, “you might as well not use it at all”, I answered, “that is my idea”. She still made me use it.

    A few years ago, my mother got one of the higher end ones I spoke about.

    She’s definitely an incurable punster and wiseacre. I get accused of ths same ailments by my friends.

    And I think the trick is to make the walkers with the right amount of traction. Make them too sticky and the people who can’t lift well have trouble moving them, hence the wheels.
