595: Android Girlfriend
Title text: Programming the sexbots to enjoy sex seemed a sensible move at the time, but we didn't realize the consequences of their developing fetishes.
The comic parodies the party trick of tying a cherry stem in a knot with your tongue (thus indicating dexterity that could be put to good use in kissing and oral sex). The android uses a built-in arc welder unit (presumably the "fetish" referred to in the alt text), which for obvious reasons frightens potential sex partners away rather than attracting them.
- [A couple and a friend face each other. The friend is holding something.]
- Cueball: Check out my new android girlfriend.
- Friend: Is she a sex bot?
- [The android grabs the cherry out of the friend's hand.]
- [The android pulls the stem off.]
- [The android puts the stem in its mouth.]
- [There is a bright flash around the android's mouth. The rest of the panel is dark.]
- [The android turns toward friend and reaches toward him.]
- Friend: I don't think arc-welding a cherry stem counts as sexy.
- Android: Remove your pants.
- Friend: No.
