I’m predicting the robot gets an upgrade: the tube that would have prevented the malfunction. And the strip ends with the robot helping to repair the damage and assisting the ladies in their business. A positive tribute to Sparky.
It sure looks like she’s buttoning up her cleavage in the last panel. Defend the assets from the ass!
“Glorious Double-Breasted Swan” seems PG enough [although it’s probably not the tone he was looking to convey]. And sounds like it would be delicious served up on a platter. (People CAN eat swan, it’s just taboo. But “chicken breast,” “duck breast,” etc. are all normal meals, so it works, kinda.)
I think it’s hilarious. That’s the problem with the world today. Everyone is so serious, just waiting and hanging on every word, expecting [and wanting] to be offended so they can make a stink. This isn’t child abuse; it’s humor [with a point to it].
I actually heard the “boss music” from the old SNES Super Metroid game in my head when I saw that thing. Awesome!
Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
Store Numbers aren’t tied to Zip Code, but rather in sequence of when they were opened. I actually worked for a bit at Home Depot Store #3, and they were very proud to be the third store ever. That was in Atlanta. So wherever Ellie’s Store is, it was the 2709th of the chain.
Rather than her upgrading everyone, I think it’s more likely that guys don’t want to look cheap in front of her, and instantly buy the top-of-the-line from the hot blonde behind the counter.
Start? They’ve always dropped like flies in this strip.
