Transcript

So there was this one day and Mr. Robot X-9000 and Mr. Monkey were in their boat going for a little ride and it was sunny and first they had cake for lunch and then more cake for dessert and it was like a picnic but it was on a boat and not at the park. They liked their boat! But Mr. Robot x-9000 he was afraid of the water.

This is because if you get the robots wet they go all sparky and then they die. So you should never get your robots wet or you will have to dry them out to make them work again. But Mr. Monkey thought this was the funniest so he was splashing water at Mr. Robot X-9000 but it wasn't funny!

"Hey stop that you monkey!" said Mr. Robot X-9000. "That is too much monkeying around for you!"

Mr. Monkey thought that was silly because he was a monkey and what do monkeys do besides monkeying around? I don't know. That is what monkeys are for. But he stopped because he was a nice monkey and he didn't want his friend to shoot sparks.

But then Officer Bill came with a duck! And he was flying!

"You are under Arrest!" said Officer Bill.

"Quack quack," said the duck.

"What for?" said Mr. Monkey. "I didn't do anything but monkeying around!

"You stole Mr. Quackers' boat!" said Officer Bill.

"Quack quack!" said Mr. Quackers. They were angry quacks.

"But he is a duck! And ducks are amphibians!" said Mr. Monkey. "Why does he need a boat."

So Mr. Robot X-9000 said they should fight. And he was powering up his battle lasers because he has super battle lasers with fire power and also ice power and he can cut things with them like steak and even diamonds.

And Officer Bill said OK and he shot his gun at Mr. Monkey but Mr. Monkey was too fast for him and he started to fly too!

"You can't catch me because I'm flying now!" said Mr. Monkey.

All of a sudden there was some thunder and lightning. That made Mr. Robot X-9000's alarms go off because thunderstorms are bad for robots.

"ALERT ALERT!" said Mr. Robot X-9000. "Must not get wet! Row to shore!"

But they couldn't row to shore because there was no shore. They were surrounded by cliffs and the cliffs were white and slippery and a million miles tall. Slippery like ice.

Also then the lightning hit Mr. Robot X-9000 right on the head! And there were sparks flying everywhere and his eyes turned to Xes instead of being lit up and his head went "BLZZZT!" and he powered down.

"Hey!" said Officer Bill. "Hey you Monkey! Now I have to arrest you for two things because you committed Grand Theft Rowboat and now also robotslaughter! You will go to jail for a thousand hundred years for that!"

But then they found out it wasn't a storm, it was Giant Pikachu who was sitting on a cloud and he was saying "Pikachu!" because that is what Pikachus say is two things: Pika and also chu.

Giant Pikachu was going to throw lightning at them but then Mommy said "Evan it is time to get out of the bath! Your fingers are all pruny and it is bedtime!"

So I had to get out of the bath and unplug the drain and when I did they all went WHOOSH! because there was a whirlpool in the bathtub the end.

I like when there are whirlpools.

Author's Note

After writing a serious, academically-toned essay last week, I decided to take the opposite approach for this one and do the silliest thing I could think of.

The entire comic is colored with genuine Crayola crayons and inked with a black magic marker as opposed to my usual professional-grade art pens.

This was A+ 100%-waterslide fantastic!!!!

I couldn't figure out where you were going with this and then I realised that it was just a sheer work of genius!

Uh oh, is this a problem?

No, it's not! When I first read the comic I was like...robot...monkey...police officer??? duck??? UHM, PIKACHU? and wondered if you were trying to top the epic bee/narwhal post. And then I saw the end and thought "ah!" ...but then, then, THEN I read the transcript/story and I really fell in love with it all and now I am talking fast b/c I am excited.

*breathes*

It really is such an awesome post and a brilliant take on the topic.

Bwahahaha. XDDDDD

Now it's my turn. TEA YOU IS A GENIUS. I love love love the robo-speech, zomg. XDDD

And there's even a twist and it's amazzzzing.

I gotta ask though, since you got a monkey and a boat...have you ever read Maakies? Because this reminds me of *that*, and *that* is also awesome. XD

http://www.maakies.com/

I love Maakies! I wasn't even thinking of that when I made this!

SECRET TWIST ENDING DO NOT REVEAL TO YOUR FRIENDS.

So awesome! Excellent idea, and totally adorable.

Thank you! I wanted to do something chipper after doing the Nazis last week.

I LOVED THIS! I was on the edge of my seat just about, reading so eagerly ... then, Aw Mom. And I burst out laughing. Perfect :D

Ah yay! I am so glad to hear it.

*giggles*

This was AWESOME to have as the first thing I read when I woke up!!

Aw yay! I am glad that it greeted your day!

I don't get to see the photobuckets from work, so I'll have to come back later, but...

"The entire comic is colored with genuine Crayola crayons..."

I made up a resume in crayon a whole bunch of years ago. I never sent it out (because it was a lot of work and crayons don't have spell-chekcers!) but it still makes me giggle and I wanted to share. :)

Oh no! I changed them to my personal webspace instead if that helps.

And that is kinda awesome. Do you still have it? I haven't had a box of crayons in years so it was really fun to just go to town with them.

Yay pictures! Thanks! :)

The Crayola Resume:
Crayola Resume - page 1

(I made this a link because I didn't want to overwhelm your entry with my stupids.)

The other side concluded with "Special Note: Not Insane"

I really wanted to send it out, but when I was showing The Internets, they asked, "What the hell is a Progrmmer?"

(And I was all, like, "Shut up.")

Hahaha that is great! I love how it's completely and totally serious except it's in crayon.

We get submissions in crayon sometimes but they are from actual crazy people.

lol I read it as "Robots laughter."

Playing in the bathtub. That brings back memories that, uh . . . are not as far back as they should be.

YOU MEAN LAST WEEK HUH?

What did you read as "robots laughter?" I am trying to figure it out!

The not "manslaughter" but "robotslaughter" charge after the robot dies. My mind just added in the space.

I wish I could read Robot so I'd know what was going on in the pictures. D:


Oh no! Is he too hard to read?

The letters! They look like my letters! But they are all square! The words look like my words, but I know they must be false cognates, like I've been warned about.

I wish I had studied robot in school instead of Czech, now!

(Incidentally, isn't robot borrowed from Czech?)

This was so much fun! Also, the transcript is so helpful for me. I tend to read the comic, but miss great moments or entire panels. So I read the comic, read the transcript, then read the comic again and it's wonderful! Thanks so much for brightening my day!

Aw, thank you! It was a lot of fun to do and I liked trying to write like a little kid.

I MELT FROM AWESOME!

MEEEEEEEEEELT!

hahahahaha! Yeah, definitely different from last week! Very fun!

That was beyond cute. I am impressed again this week!

ROFL! Pika!

That was some mighty tasty stuff there. I particularly love the "MONKEY. I MUST INSIST YOU STOP MONKEYING AROUND" panel. Oh, yes--and the robot "voice." Much fun!

Awww thank you!

Everything is better with Giant Pikachu!

lol, monkeying around. hahaha.

I love it!! I always love your ideas, and they come together so perfectly every time.

This was so much fun, especially reading Evan's version of the story.
