In case you’re interested, here’s a picture of my mounted tailless whip scorpion. An entomologist friend of mine gave it to me years ago when I was seriously into the science fiction series, Babylon 5, and he thought these creatures looked like the Shadow attack cruisers, which they kinda do. And yes, it’s hanging in my kitchen.
Links to previous strips in this storyline:
• Bot Be Buggin’
• The Truce
Geh. I feel like it’s on me! XD
just don’t look on your back, Waffle! 😉
Ok, Dude.. I need to go bathe now. There is nothing more in the world that I fear, and hate at the same time. (Arachnids) Plus I double shivered when I saw the last panel. Love how Cornfather’s cup is smiling and then it’s frowning. Another great one!
thanks, Spanky! and wow, i got a Double Shiver out of this one!? sweet! 😉
Suddenly I feel as if I have something crawling on my back! That’s one impressive looking spider there.
if you’re feeling that spider, Tim, then i feel i did my job. 🙂
LOL! Brilliant joke, Jeff!
thanks, Stan! glad you liked it.
Yay! I love it…good one JEFBOT!!!
heh. thanks, JP!
you are one of a kind!
i hope that’s a good thing, g! 😉
I hate when that happens… Very funny Jefbot! And thanks for moving the
scorpion… tailless or not it was scary!!!
actually, funnyshaffer, i haven’t moved it; it’s still there. :-O
I want one!
if i get a ferret on my birthday, you’re getting a tarantula in your bed when you least expect it.
How did I ever miss that all the times I’ve been over to the BotCave? I’m glad I did, that thing is nasty!
hmm. have you ever been in my kitchen? i’ll show it to you, up close, next time you’re over, jk.
Hahahahaha!!! This is so funny and yet so creepy. I hated that tailless whip scorpion at first and now it definitely has a home on the kitchen wall. Please note bot fans, that the scorpion is STILL hanging in the kitchen. Bot, you really did a great job with this one. I love the expressions and every time I see that spider on the Cornfather’s back, I get the shivers. Great work as usual! 😀
glad you’ve come around, Michael.
Sweet lion of Zion! I hope I never encounter a spider of that size that up close and personal. If I ever made a truce or alliance with a bug race it wouldn’t be one that could possibly eat me if things got hairy.
Gah, it’s like my Starcraft Zerg nightmares have come back to haunt me!
ooh, now i have an image of a huge zerg rush of tarantulas coming at me! hope i don’t take that image with me to my dreams tonight… so yes, probably best to make an alliance with a cuter species. like ladybugs or butterflies, Foxmouse. 😉
you have that in your kitchen? nice!
I have a petrified spider my wife won’t let me display anywhere.
cool. maybe you surprise your wife with the spider in her sock drawer, or the butter dish in the refrigerator, jh3. believe me, she’ll love it!
I already commented. I just want my avatar to be up. 😉
you could’ve just asked me to fix it, mc. 🙂
I totally want a tarantula. But, the apartment and my roommate are not spider friendly XD
i’ve never had a live tarantula, DaughterJudy, but i’ve always wanted either one of those or an emperor scorpion. those things are awesome! i have a feeling my roommate would not approve either, though. 🙂
I hate spiders – but love your strip. xo
heh. that’s all i ask, bari.
Aww you stopped the strip right before Cornfather screamed like a little girl!
need I say it….KILL KILL KILL DIE DIE DIE!!! What slice of creepy crawly pie is that? I hate bugs *shudder* Keep nature off of me LOL
ha! the cornfather screaming like a little girl would pretty much be the next panel, Evil Step Queen!
ahh there we go, does my avatar show up now? sorry had to test drive it LOL
yes! your avatar’s showing and i dig it. 🙂
Whoa! Indiana Jones flashback
so true, Eptha, except that jefbot’s not quite as brave as indy, otherwise he might actually help the cornfather out here. 🙂
Haha, ew. Why do you have that? x) Their scary. </3 Haha loved the last panel, made me laugh.
just let me know if you’d like to see it, Nat, and i’ll bring it over. it’s pretty cool!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY JEFBOT!!!
arigato, DJ!!! 😀
eee… just… [shiver]. I can’t quite handle this one, bot sir. yer doin’ a number on my nerves! =)
heheh. you’ll be happy to know that the next strip doesn’t have any more insects or arachnids in it then, Jed. i just hope you like ferrets! 😉
I’ve never seen the comic before today, but I’ve read it from start to finish partially because of this comic (and the link from Wapsi Squared). I am terrified of spiders, and this comic made me shiver and laugh. You’ve been added to my daily comic cycle! ^_^
glad to have you on board, Jennery! and thanks for taking the time to go through the entire archive and adding me to your daily comic cycle (new strips are up tuesdays and fridays) – that’s one of the coolest things i can hear from a reader! 😀
I shivered when I first saw this… and I pulled it up at my bf’s place in Chicago and he was not-happy with the spider either….
I’m trying to image the Cornfather’s scream that should be in the next panel, but it keeps coming out as my own! LOL
HA! well thanks for adding sound fx to my strip then, Shay! your bf couldn’t have been too happy about that, either. 🙂
That is one of the most awesome looking creatures I’ve ever seen
glad you dig it, CheddarMan! maybe someday i’ll post the reference photos i used for these strips.
Haha, read through the whole comic today (followed an ad link, can’t remember where the hell from, though), and I’m definitely gonna keep following it.
As for this strip – I’m kinda like Jefbot there. I pretty much love the creepy-crawly critters, as long as they aren’t dangerous to humans or get into my food (the ants that raided our pantry last week met with swift, merciless death) I’ll let ’em live with me, and I definitely never kill the spiders.
The rest of my family, on the other hand…well, let’s just say my sister once freaked out and asked me to come take care of a big spider behind a picture frame – a spider which turned out to be the frayed end of the hanging wire. XD
i gotta give you the same props i gave Jennery, EOTD – a big thanks for reading through the archive and adding JEFbot to your webcomics reading list!
and that’s an awesome story about your sister – what i’ve come to learn from this little story arc is that people freak out when it comes to spiders (okay, sometimes justifiably)!
would love to see the look on cornfather face
heh. if you could see it, there would probably be absolutely no expression on the Cornfather’s face, JF3. i don’t think any muscles of his are going to move until that tarantula is safely removed. and maybe not for a while after that. 🙂
that is the coolest thing ever!!!!
That is a great, thanks a lot to post this.
THAT THING IS AWSOME! Where can i get one?
This is officially the first strip of any comic ever that has made my heart drop into my stomach.
And I LIKE spiders.
Okay. Now I won’t be able to sleep for weeks. D: That things legs could wrap around my whole torso! GAH!
Babylon 5 was an epic series!
Haha, wow, they do! And hey, love B5, I have the entire series on DVD, and the entire movie collection too.
