So now we see that there are indeed two types of trap-door robots. Although that is somewhat inconsequential as that conversation took place so long ago that the closure is overshadowed by the newer questions that have arrived.
And speeking of speculation on events that have already passed… Wow. I reeeaaaly need to work on my segways. Anyway, my money was on the penguins swooping in last minute to save the day. Then promptly ruin it as they cannot fly.
YAY THIS ONE IS EARLY!!! (It’s not 12 here yet :)
Tiny robot friends! Create waves of yourselves and bear us away from the danger while we speculate on the alternate possible outcomes of our situation two seconds ago!
I laughed at the last panel dialogue. This is one of my favorites.
Do you suppose they’ll play football with our fair heroes?
I’m going to have to agree with Aric. I definitely would not have theorized this.
Well, Kodos to all the robo-rescue theories. :D
Check, awesomeness, and apologies for the triple post… >.> *sweeps the last two under the rug and sets a chair over it* la li la…
omg, this action flies in the face of Cookie Law… and I don’t think that doing some carrying now will grant them any leniency!
I think there is 3 types of robots the pink eyed ones the yellow eyed ones and the purple eyed ones but the pink and purple are like the same model like bender and flexto from futurama i reckon some thing weird is gunna happen to the big cookie robot like bad dancing or sumet cool like that each way the next update should involve dancing or penguins vs bugs
All I can say is
Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto
PARTAY!!!! :) WHOOO!!!
Rescued from robot…BY robots… my brain is so confused!
Not much elbow-room below the surface, is there? o_O
I believe this is proof that swarm tactics always work, no exceptions.
Actually.. That’s exactly what I expected to happen! Haha first panel, Aric: Hold on to your hats! ..Lemmo: I’m to young to die!! ..Am I the only one that misses parasox?
Return of the Robots. Awesome. :)
I knew the robots would recur them, but I never thought they would jump from the ground and stop the collie kingdom robot. I thought they were gonna do something along the lines of pulling them underground where they would have all kinds of awesome and magical adventures the likes of which no words can describe.
Srry on my last post I said collie kingdom robot when I meant to say cookie kingdom. I accadentally typed in cokkie and my iPhone changed it to collie.
Wow, that’s a lot of tiny robots. I wonder why they saved them. Oh well, I like how the colours of all their little robotic eyes mix, it’s kinda cool.
This is a test to see if it’s possable to have 2 accounts at once. If they name that posted this is Physicsmaster than it works, if it says Physicsman (which is who is performing the test) than it doesn’t work. If u can’t see this post at all please call tech support for assistance.
Note to everyone: Physicsman is now Physicsmaster… That is all.
cookies vs robots… There is a shirt in there somewhere.
Ooooh, I bet they’re gonna get split up between yellowrobotland and pinkn’purplerobotland. I think the robots think our fair heroes are gods actually. Also how the HELL did they get outta those trapdoors so fast?? I meant I can see how there could be an infinite city of robots underground… and now that I think about it the black neverendingness was as infinite as the purple liquid. Maybe everything underground is infinite and therefore there’s also an infinite supply of robots!
Woah, theory. >.>
Hmm… Perhaps Aric and Lemmo were rescued because of Aric’s hair?
Yeah, be carefull, contemplating infinities tends to make one’s brain hurt.
Ooh. Bellstrom has an epic idea. I’ve been wondering when The Hair would come back into prominence.
You know, this comic has been going on for a while and I’m starting to wonder just how LONG they’ve been in there. Is this all the same day? If not, why do they never seem to sleep?
hehe, random thoughts
@Retsof: u wanna know what really makes ur brain hurt? Dividing by Zero.
@zaphares: maybe thats why the shovel beam keeps burnin faster and faster? Or maybe the shovel beam is actualy a beam of hand cutting awesome for use againts cookies and cookie law
All hail king ginger
Darn! *snaps fingers* None of my theories played out.
To be honest, I didn’t expect any of my ideas to actualize, but they were fun to theorize.
Now I feel bad for all those brave robots who sacrificed themselves to save Aric and Lemmo. Then again, they can always be repaired or rebuilt.
That is a lot of robots. I mean, I know everyone has said that already, but darn, that’s a lot of robots. Tens of thousands of robots leaping from beneath the ground in the fraction of a second before the main characters get squished. That is not something you see every day.
Also, I love the enthusiastic expressions of the distant robots in the third panel; arms raised in excitement as Aric and Lemmo are saved!
I love this comic…
@bluesox: I think the cookie Kingdomatron missed them, too. :3
@DefierOfPhysics Honestly, I felt bad the first couple of times I looked over this… but after having read your post and looking at the distant robots in the third panel; It appears that those robots are actually holding up the Cookie-Kingdoms foot! (IF that is what is happening, then there are even more than we could have imagined if they are able to keep the foot from touching the ground!)
@e_is_for_eric; maybe but what about the slam in the second frame i think there gunna overturn it and take over cookie land wich is againts cookie law the king must hear of this! <.< (did i just come up eith a theory)
Don’t the trapdoors contradict the ShovelBeam? Did the laws of physics change for the sake of the plot? Do you even have an organized plot? Does it even matter?
@Anonymoose: I don’t think there ever actually were any laws of physics to begin with. Therefore the trapdoors do not contradict the shovel beam becuz there is nothing to contradict.
Haha… Machina ex machina.
@Anonymoose @Physicsmaster – Someday, maybe you’ll understand. But not until we let you in on it all, I suppose.
If Aric’s second likely outcome happened I would’ve been way off. XD
hmmm. i was thinking trap door… who knew?! haha
Also, the Robots will ANNIHILATE the Cookie Kingdom in the Great Void War of 2010. Not with Lemmo and Aric on the front lines!
I just noticed, in th background of panel 3 the robots are holding up the cookie city’s foot.
Yeah, they’re not cheering, they’re either holding up the kingdom or overturning it. I agree that because of the initial slam it’s being overturned. There’s certainly enough robots to do the job!
Wow, you’re right. The robots are overturning the cookie kingdom!
I wonder if the robots will invade the kingdom and engage the cookies directly. If so, I wonder who will leave from that encounter victorious.
…holy! well… Helsyeh!
Third most likely outcome in Aric’s imagination? Giant slug beast appears and Lemmo somehow tames it for riding away from the giant robot full of jerk cookies.
He would obviously have to tame it very, very quickly.
Geeze… Its Hot Soup! I haven’t heard that name in ages. You probably don’t remember Puck from the Hot Soup Forums YEARS and YEARS ago…
Anyway! An interesting comic you have here, sir! Kind of “Rosencranz and Gildenstern are Dead” feel to it, yeah? I’ll be back to read for sure.
~ The Puck
And then a new war breaks out between the different robots as they battle over the rights to claim their new fleshy gods as their own.
Interesting how there seems to be only 2 types of robots
Puck! Welcome to my new digs!
That looks like tiny robot friends and Aric-bots, but Aric-bot seems to have shrunken down as well.
You know the odds against this coming up heads again are positively astronomical. Overwhelmingly, the odds are that it will next fall ‘tails.’ After all, how *flips the coin, trying to catch it off guard, chases after it…* Heads.
Okay I have been doing research (AKA rerererereading the archieves) and I have come to a conclusion… everything that ever happened in this blank world is all Aric’s fault. He was the first there. Standing around… he turned around to look and there was no one till after he took off his cloths so obviously something he did then either caused Lemmo to come into being or be brought there or both… because it is kinda hard to sneak up on someone in a featureless world. There for…everything that is… and everything that ever shall be… is the result of Aric.
I mean Lemmo kinda just… appeared there. Like the shovel.
WHAT ARE THEY SWAREING IN PANEL 1???
I have the strange feeling that after the door was opened, they were saved more by passive diffusion, than anything else.
@EP: I don’t think there swearing I think lemmo started to say “it’s been nice knowing u buddy” but stoped when he noticed the robots (which wouldn’t b shown in the same panal) and Aric (who is preoccupied with almost dying) doesn’t realize that Aric stopped and went on to say “same here pal” when he too noticed the robots and stopped short… Or I just overthinking this.
Raron maybe ,but if something is far away enough and small enoug you cant see it but then how would lemmo get to aric so fast its all confusin there must be an entrence to the whole map. But where is it
