Anyone notice in the comments of every blog post a bunch of whiny skinbags are trying to divert the story to themsevles?

Signed, a whiny skinbag trying to divert the story to himself.

I agree with MTBob. The real humor of this strip is that the robot considers the cars to be more significant than the people, so that should be the punch-line, and should be located in Panel 3.

Topic suggestions? Sex, of course.

By the way, Dilbert's tie was flat... what?... like >10 years ago? That's cruel.

RRN has a lot of potential. If you are looking for feedback, here's mine:

I fear it is breaking your own rule of too much gripe-based humor (I forget the specific term you have used to describe this, but you should know what I'm talking about).

Rather than an over-the-top cynical robot, I prefer that the robot have a pragmatic approach to news... and that the humor comes from the reader realizing just how silly humans actually behave.

In most every RRN strip, the 1st panel is setup and the 2nd panel is the joke that makes me laugh. The 3rd panel seems unnecessary and the tone of the 3rd panel leaves me feeling more annoyed/insulted rather than entertained.

Tweak the 3rd panel, and I'll be in your 20%.

President Obama disgraced the US by serving a cheap white wine,

at the State dinner, honoring the French president.

Aparantly the French like their food more putrid.


Colorado received more than $100 million dollars

in tax revenue, by taxing the sale of weeds.

Just don't tax my WD-40


Humans rejected the expansion of the Keystone Pipeline

slowing delivery of energy to rest of the country.

Each one expects the other to stop driving.


Your Department of Homeland Security wants a national license plate tracking system,

that will track every driver's movements around the country.

We call it foreplay.


CNN again reported more human on human violence and death.

Our sanitation crews had them scraped up in record time...

and started a new recycling program.

You recently described these comics as an example of your systems-based approach, and linked to your new book.

I recently finished your book, enjoyed it, and learned from it, but one thing seems missing.

I'd be extremely interested in seeing something like an extra chapter in the paperback version that's written by your wife--to what extent does she value, appreciate, or dislike your systems-based approach.

I still think they are sharper without skinbags.

Foggy conditions caused a multi-car accident.

Among the injured were,

two Fords, a Honda, three Chevys and a Volvo.
