Nihiltres' wild imagination wrote:Brilliant criminal mastermind from the future "[insert evil mastermind name here]" is about to be finally busted after years of glamourous criminal escapades and needs a way out. He discovers a scientist who's building a strange machine: it jumps your mind to a parallel universe, and you're reborn with all your fiendish intelligence from your past life. Stealing the machine, he discovers that a small amount of mass can be taken along for the ride. The aging scientist had intended to bring along a hard-drive with his research, for another lifetime of intense study into spacetime's quirks, but the criminal can only think of one thing to bring, his gun [let's call her "Vera" ]. Born into a new universe with nothing but a gun, he decides to start off in style. Youngest criminal in all history!
I really love how Randall is experimenting with the art! Since I only read this comic for the nostalgic stick figures anyway, I love the simplicity.</sarcasm>
I thought this was funny. It was sort of like life in that it didn't have a punch line. It game an unpleasant, pleasant feeling that cannot be orthographized in any way other than this. I hope this is part of a series.

This reminds me of a story I read once called "Billy the Fetus." I think the author thought up the title and couldn't resist, because without it the whole exercise is completely surreal. With it, it's just weird, but you at least know where he's coming from.
Totally random totally awesome SF quote: Jorane Sutt put the tips of carefully-manicured fingers together and said, "It's something of a puzzle. In fact--and this is in the strictest confidence--it may be another one of Hari Seldon's crises."
Follow that baby! Your only guide is the extensive umbilical cord he left! Now you got to follow an SUV stolen by the baby, and an ensuing cutscene, you appear hiding on a car shield, but you can't kill the baby or the game will restart! You got to follow him while other marauders also try to shoot you. Now at the end you can abort the baby, or keep him alive.
It would be interesting to know how Randall even thought of this comic. I mean, who goes around associating birth and stick ups? Is there a hidden pun? I think this was about Randall's thought process:
Haha, yesterday's pun was pretty good. Maybe I should do another one. But about what? [beat] I know! That 'push' thing with babies is so overdone. I should satirize it. The doctor should ask the woman to pull instead of push. Hah! But what would make a doctor say that? If it was killing the woman? Nah, too offensive. What about if something particularly dangerous was coming out of the womb? Teehee, that would be weird. What are doctors frightened of? Well, everybody has to be able to relate to this, so it has to be either completely stereotypical or completely universal. Well, the only stereotypical thing I can think of is a handwriting lesson, and that can't come out of a womb. Now, what is everyone universally afraid of? …guns. But, it would make no sense to give birth to a gun, so… what if the baby was holding a gun? Haha! That's funny! I'll totally do that!

Haha everyone noticed the missing elastic band, I got to say I didn't even see that until it was mentioned here. But anyone else get confused by the clickc sound? I had to read it twice to realize it was supposed to be the gun being cocked and not firing on an empty chamber... please tell me someone else saw that?
Sorry, If I'm on internet forums I'm probably drunk.

I didn't notice that the speech line originated from her lower regions.
Needless to say I was baffled.
I think I was unconsciously applying Occam's Razor and this seemed like the simplest explanation!
That is hilarious in a wonderfully Dadaist way, and is my official interpretation of this comic.
