JEFBOT.14_Bye Bye TiVoon October 17, 2007 at 12:06 am
I inadvertently disconnected my mom’s TiVo from the phone line when I was setting up her computer a few weeks ago, and couldn’t make it back over to figure out what was wrong with it before it completely stopped recording. Needless to say, she was not happy at the time but we can look back on it now and laugh, which is why I did this strip. I figured this event would be a great way to debut her character and refresh some fun memories at the same time. Please give my mom a warm welcome to JEFBOT.
You’re laughing now, right mom? Right?
Brilliant. (And yay, I’m first!) 😉
Really funny, JEFbot. But I don’t think killing your mom’s TiVo should be considered a “fun memory.” But giving Michael $130.00 present would be.
the yellow sun eclipses the…I won’t finish that so as not to offend those who are not of the asian persuasion.
mushi mushi, grandma!
and is that a nacho supreme?? are you guys at taco bell? BOMB
I HEART JEFBOT
It was worth the wait! It’s so Mommy and now I AM the GOLDEN CHILD! You killed Mom’s TiVo – I love the way you drew her – your the best.
Correction to “your the best” I’m changing it to “you’re the best” an idiot called me to inform me of the typo. – thanks
I didn’t know I was barely living before I got DVR with my cable. It’s the best invention EVER!! Kudos Jefbot!
I LOVE my TIVO too!!!!! If I ever get a Fatal Error I won’t know what to do with myself. I don’t even want to think about it!!!
Very funny. The tivo/DVR error that fails to record shows is the bane of my existence.
LOL! I HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS! It makes me rage!!!!!! Outstanding yet again!!
bon, yes! you get the prize!!!
cornacchia, i think i need to reevaluate “fun.”
akira, yes, well, actually, taco schnell in the jefbot universe.
anonymous, i didn’t “kill” her tivo, just put it into a coma for a few days. i’m still the golden child. 😉
amberlicious, it IS. i couldn’t watch tv at all without my dvr.
anonymous, i know. better not to think about it.
john k, yes. deleting them before i’ve had a chance to watch is mine.
funnyshaffer, rage against the dying of the tivo.
Loved it! I’m glad you got it up today tho…I was about to go through JEFbot withdrawal….
I thought I was the only one who loved my Tivo THAT much! I love the comic, Jeff!!!
laura, we wouldn’t want that to happen!
ang, you aren’t alone.
I forgot how funny this was.
those nachos made me hungry
Yuh, I had to come back and comment on this one…
I have never had Tivo, and may never will. (Hah!)
But if I did, and it suddenly went down, I think this’d be my reaction.
I also think this is a beautiful rendition of how this moment would go. (even though I don’t have a son)
BUT… To Mombot…. Bejeweled ftw!! You should play my Mum sometime. xD She loves that game.
