Hey guys, hope you had a great weekend!

Comic Logistics

First of all, it might have gone up an hour earlier than you're used to. I'm not sure. We just 'sprung forward', so I'm uploading it at my new midnight, an hour earlier. If you do DST the same way as Canada, you might notice no difference, since you went along with us for that particular ride.

Comic Itself

Ahhh Robert, always with the backup plans :) I think that there is meant to be some degree of condescension with both options, but considering that this is somewhere in the vicinity of treason, I figure that cleaning that room is probably getting off easy.

Unless Thomas kept questionable things in his room, in which case the death penalty might have been more humane ;)


Right, contest. Go back two updates for the rules and junk. It basically consists of you sending an email so far as effort on your part, and getting drawn into a comic if you win (which would require you to send a picture if you win, I suppose). If you're interested in being drawn into TOGM, check out the specifics.

Have a great week everyone! I know that I intend to try :D

I really enjoyed inventing and drawing that messy room.

Now, I hope to never draw it again ;)

Well, you're in luck! ... Oh wait, no you're not... TOGM: All Room, all the time.

I maintain that comments are already broken

(I cannot read any of them on my other computer, for example; grey on black doesn't work for me >_>)
Magravan edit delete reply
@neon5162 - I'm starting to think that maybe you are responsible for the comments being broken... and just about everything else :P

@Kao Condettori - Whatever keeps him from starting another rebellion ;)

@MatthewJA - I've mentioned to June that we should swap the backgrounds to Green from Black, and change the text from grey to Black. I don't like this either :/

I am startign to think he keeps Thomas (John) around more as a Pet (Hamster wheel) than a Friend, though he may view him more as a kid (Messy Room) in a Beth/RZ scenario minus Robert obviously not being his father.... or is he? How long ago did Robert start eating brains? Huh? Huh?! Then what about the Zombie John/Thomas/thing? Is it Clone? Has Robert managed to be able to clone people?! I need a Zombie over here to clean up the mess from my Brain exploding!

haha. Thomas, you've been very naughty, clean your room. And don't forget to vacuum. I remember when this happened to me. I tried to overthrow a dictator once, and they made me clean my room. I was not happy.

if you haven't guessed already, zombies cloning live people means...
1. real food
2. reproduction
3. robert can regain is 'omnipotence' again
4. others can 'evolve', more 3's, more 4's more 5's, you name it.

A guy refuses to obey Robert: their heads are torn off and put in a trophy case.

Treason and attempting to incite a rebellion: have to clean up your room or run on a hamster wheel.

Robert's punishments are really unpredictable...
aok666 (Guest) edit delete reply
@Nightsky: Robert gives special leniency to his BFF. Anyway, he did say that the punishment had to fit the (im)maturity level of his recent behaviour.

There's just a flaw in you're #2... Have to be a female to reproduce with.
Feartheswans edit delete reply
*Scrambles to reposes some of her brain* as I sit here staring at My Boba Fett USB jump Drive, I felt the impulse to watch Star Wars Episode 2, and can't help but feel this movie someway has influenced Robert's thinking.... I mean Clones, many clones... a clone army.... or you know they could be livestock. I should really post after I wake up instead of before crashing into oblivion.

I need food... nom nom....
Feartheswans edit delete reply

At this point I will envoke Rule 34. Because my mind went WOOOOOOOOOOOSH straight into the gutter with how That could potentially be solved.
Asheswillfall (Guest) edit delete reply
I'm not familiar with which rule that would be, if you're speaking of the Ferengi rules of acquisition, that one does not make sense for what you're talking about. Maybe you need more sleep :P
Feartheswans edit delete reply

Rule of the internet number 34 ^_~

Though From Robert's standpoint I do Believe that war is indeed good for Business (Ferengi Rule of Acquisition 34)
Magravan edit delete reply
Oh right, turns out people talk while I sleep... Darn night shift, puts me out of synch with everything ;)

@Feartheswans - Robert started eating brains from the first moment he turned into a zombie ;) Years and years ago ;)

@model S - It's the ultimate deterrent! If Robert had enforced room cleaning in the first place, maybe this whole thing wouldn't have happened!

@the_brigand - That's a good point :)

@Nightsky - Minions disobey, they get their heads torn off and put into trophy cases. :P

Also, he knows that tearing John's head off would be counter productive ;)

@aok666 - That's a part of it as well. Robert looks at this situation as resolved, and only a temporary bump in his overall efforts. As he mentioned previously, a mildly entertaining diversion that didn't even take hours away from his plans.

This punishment is meant to be demeaning.

@Asheswillfall - Ohohoho, Zing! :P

@Feartheswans - Soooo many clones :O Clone them then turn them into zombies :O

@Feartheswans - No, you can't volunteer to birth the clone army ;P

@Asheswillfall - Probably for the best ;) Rule 34 boils down to basically "If it exists, there's porn of it"

@Feartheswans - In this case, I'm inclined to disagree. War WAS good for business when there were humans to be spoils.. Now it's just potential loss of his herd ;)

Oh give me a clone,
Of my own flesh and bone,
With the Y-chromosome changed to X.

So that when we're alone,
Since her mind is my own,
She'll be thinking of nothing but sex!
asheswillfall (Guest) edit delete reply
@feartheswans I had never heard of that before, but then I don't go to urban dictionary. I break one of those rules often, #16.
@Mag then there is rule #35 - Peace is good for business.
Magravan edit delete reply
@somebody else - Haha :) Unforunately, the title doesn't get shown, so the link isn't there :(

@asheswillfall - It's not just urban dictionary.. I'm pretty sure TvTropes has something like that too...

And yes, Peace is very good for business.
Feartheswans edit delete reply

Just Google: Internet Rule 34 ^_~

Or don't, and live a happier life ;)
