Oh, I do! Although I like to imagine it without the failure part which leads her to hospital.

Yes, I would have liked it too, if it had been the point of the joke. I liked this joke very much too!

But there is a relationship between Megan's and Robert's actions.


Apparently some of these fools don't see the obvious connection. Here you go folks:

11.00
Megan gets home, finds Robert in bed with a sexbot, engaged in some unimaginable fetish. A great battle ensues, with lasers and flying knives and things that seem to explode for no apparent reason. Eventually, Megan finds the sexbot's one weakness and declares "I am John Connor". Using Bayes' theorem, the sexbot evaluates the posterior probability of it being SkyNet, given the potential state transition 'Kill John Connor' and implodes.

12.30
To Celebrate, Megan dashes off to the adult toy store to buy a life-size blow-up Sarah Connor doll. Robert attempts to clean up the debris.

1.30
Megan arrives home and Robert tells her their child is being held hostage by a madman (like Speed 2 only with a bus instead of a boat). Some research (and science) later, they track down the madman's IP trail across the websphere and discover the madman's sexbot is the one Robert stole in a really exciting and intricate heist which will feature in a later comic as a prequel when the concept of making more sequels becomes too ridiculous to stomach. The madman can't cope without the sweet sexbot fetish loving any more.

2.00
Robert dashes to the school to stop their child's physics experiment (which only has two hours before it creates a giant black hole) while Megan runs to the sex toy store to try and find the madman a new sexbot. On the way, she runs down Marsellus Wallace before murdering a redneck and stealing their motorbike chopper.

2.30
Robert finds that the school has been taken over by raptors. He fights his way through them room by room trying to reach the science expertiment. Meanwhile, Megan couldn't find everything she needed to build a sexbot at the sex toy store, so comes home to sift through the wreckage for spare parts.

3.00
Robert is still fighting the raptors - Megan has completed the sexbot - she now goes to the electronics store so she can buy an mp3 player and some portable speakers. She wants to be able to play the Kill Bill Fight Theme in case the high speed sexbot delivery goes wrong and she needs to use her samurai training once more.

3.30
Having saved the world, Robert pops in to Subway for a well deserved snack.

Subway. Eat Fresh. The way a sandwich should be.


Meanwhile, Megan has delivered the sexbot without a hitch. The madman is happy and the children are saved.

4.00
Megan comes home and makes a cup of tea to celebrate. However, she slips and spills boiling water all over herself.



It was obvious, really, wasn't it?

You were doing so well up to here. Unfortunately, everyone knows that not even the great Robert cannot successfully outmatch a raptor, let alone several.

So I pull out my trusty G1 to check latitude and hopefully catch someone doing something interesting and these are the results I got.

  • Dad: Whittier, CA (He's in Georgia, but doesn't have a smartphone, so he just picked a location back in February. He's allegedly been in CA ever sense.)
  • My Coworker: (40 minutes ago) About 2 miles from Sarasota, FL. where she's on vacation. She's somewhere within 2 miles of the beach (possibly on the beach itself?).
  • Me: (8 minutes ago) At work

This thing isn't very good at catching people in the act when It can't pinpoint people down to less than about half a mile.

It's entirely possible that *Megan* is actually an android herself, went for upgrades, and then severely injured someone else (that is, someone other than Robert).

Upgrades are always tempting. I'm a robot. I would know. Even if they lead you to sharks.

I thought he just used the name Megan because their last breakup was especially painful or something. Actually, that would explain the last three strips or so. And Robert is obviously Bobby Tables, who Hat Guy was tracking to test his application for SQL injection vulnerability.

I concur that the main character is Randal, but not in autobiography, just in namesake, like Casey and Andy. I immediately thought it was referring to Bobby Roberts.

I'm starting to think this last week was a disguised story arc:

Monday: Megan is so sick of this guy's misogynistic jokes that she breaks up with him.

Wednesday: He buys a sex bot to try and replace her.

Friday: He becomes increasingly obsessed with her, to the point of hiring Black Hat to track her whereabouts so that he can stalk her more easily.

Comment 1
OK, this is the conspiracy theory for this week's comics...
On Monday, Robert makes a smart-ass joke to his girlfriend Megan.-
They break up on Tuesday, because Robert is a smart ass.
On Wednesday, Robert purchases a replacement Girlfriend, and shows it of to Randall (who is drinking a chick's drink).
On Tuesday, the following happens
(tiedyeina, i changed the story a little bit)
Spoiler:
tiedyeina wrote:11.00

and finally, on Friday, Hat-Guy is showing off his new phone to Randall. Randall then tells Hat-guy about Wednesday's shenanigans (why is that word in spell check?) and that reminds Hat-Guy of what happened on Thursday. which is where the comic starts (with Hat-Guy explaining latitude)

Comment 2
Randall, if your reading this...
Did a girl called Megan break your heart in the past?
Was it with your best friend?
Was Miss lienhart a Teacher in your past?

When I saw the comic this was what came into mind directly, sadly it is in swedish but I think you get part of the point if you watch it. Atleast the creepy bit. Tar, hamsters, internal bleeding and so on.
