Of course, all R.O.B. could have done if he did indeed receive some sort of pre-determined evil activation signal would have been to drop a door on my poor little doctor’s head in Gyromite. He was wont to do that anyway, so who’s to say he never did reveive such a signal? Between him and a population blinded by Virtua Boy, it just might have worked. It would have been like Day of the Triffids, but with less Chlorophyll. Or sea water.

While this week’s comic is rather less than topical, I think R.O.B.’s on my mind because he just kicks so much ass in Mario Kart DS. Much like me.
