Oh, the havoc I’d wreak if I had a remote this powerful!!!
This would explain the traffic in L.A.
yes, jefbot takes full responsibility for the traffic problems in l.a.
This is sooooo funny, bot! I really love the different locations. The traffic jam is classic. Who knew so much comedy could come from one universal remote? Goes to show, when you’re as talented as the BOT, anything can be funny! You’re the bestest everest!!!! 😀
thanks, Mike! y’know, this whole ‘universal remote” storyline was supposed to be a one-shot, but it’s taken on a life of its own!
Oh dear. Two green lights at the same time. Am I horrible for enjoying that particular panel? 😛
heheh. if you are, that means i am too, Lunik, since that panel was the first one i thought of when brainstorming this strip. 🙂
JEFbot causes more hysteria when he’s oblivious of his actions then when he’s conscious of them, like a sleep walker or Lindsay Lohan. May heaven help us if he ever discovers this and decides to walk into a crowed mall blindfolded.
Also, yay, doggy! Rots are awesome, some of the most protective yet devoted dogs a person could own. Your rendition of one is priceless. So cute!
you’re right, Foxmouse! god forbid jefbot ever gets a job at a nuclear power plant and takes a nap… 😉
and you’re right about rots – they’re awesome. the one that appears in panel 1 is an homage to “Maverick,” my sister Linda’s dog that’s now in that great kennel in the sky. 🙁
THAT REMOTE IS A WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION! *ahem* This was all sorts of awesome, and I’m still giggling after reading this. I really love all of the different elements of each panel, but me thinks Jefbot needs to think about reading the manual. (Doubt it’s going to happen though, considering*cough*he’saguy*cough*. ) If I were having the same issues as Mr. Jefbot, I would probably be making that same face (love his expression in the last panel!) Kudos!
thanks, Spanky! yes, that remote is a WMD!!! if only George Bush (and jefbot!) knew… heheh. and yeah, fat chance of jefbot reading the manual; his neighborhood will probably be rubble before that happens. 🙂
“are you having a laugh? is he having a laugh?”
I need that remote :]
don’t we all, RinaRaiinbowlicious. don’t we all.
I don’t care about the rest… I’m just worried about the dog (is that a rottweiler?!) that you open the gate for!!! What if it gets hit by a car?!!! You’re so evil Jefbot >_<
Read the darn manual!!! There’s nothing funny about “experimenting through trial and error”. I would LOVe to say is a Men’s thing, but that would be ignorant of me. I know a bunch of men that DO read the manuals. They are funnier than the non-reading-manuals men.
yep, it’s a rott, Sonitan. but aren’t you worried about him getting out and attacking passersby with his big ol’ jaws!? he could be RABID!!! i love that you’re worried about him getting hurt. heheh. and no, it wouldn’t be ignorant of you to say: it is indeed a guy thing. 🙂
Ha! I always like to joke that we’re unknowingly opening our neighbor’s garage with our remote control, so this strip is awesome! Of course, shouldn’t a UNIVERSAL remote also affect things in space? We’ll see tomorrow, perhaps 😉
another example of great minds thinking alike, Stan! i thought about replacing that third panel with a satellite getting deactivated and falling into the atmosphere. decided to keep it more grounded. 🙂
…it really does control the universe!!! You could make so much money with that thing… Love the story line! P. S. will you please lock my gate and help me catch my dog now???!!!
sorry about that, funnyshaffer.
This is fantastic! I’d say the comics are just starting to “click” but they have consistently been SO funny all along…Great strip Jefbot!!!
well thankyouverymuch, JP!
Good one Payton! I love this one Jeff. That remote is pretty daunting. 🙂
fear the remote, Shana!!! 😀
All I can say is RTFM!! XD
nice! the Cornfather might have to wear that shirt in future strips, DJ! 😀
Wasn’t there a movie like this? 🙂
yes, but i can’t think of the title… 😉
glad you got some laughs out of it, Klowd19!
EXTERIOR: Cheyenne Mountain Operations Center, Headquarters of the North American Air Defense Command.
INTERIOR: Crystal Palace, the NORAD command and control center.
A young Lieutenant is sitting at his station, a large CRT screen, as the radar makes yet another sweep around a blank screen.
EXT: A small house in Los Angeles.
INT: The TV room.
Cornfather: “Still can’t get that remote to work, huh?”
JefBOT: *furiously pushing buttons on his new remote* “I keep pushing buttons but nothing happens!”
INT: Crystal Palace *The Lieutenant’s jaw drops in shock as several blips suddenly appear on his radar screen. He starts madly typing on a keyboard and, as horns start to blare and warning lights start to flash, presses a button on a headset that he’s wearing* “Uh, I have indications of an ICBM launch…”
You can probably guess the rest.
HAHAHA! i love it! how awesome would it be if i ran that scenario as JEFbot’s last strip, reynard61? the last panel would be completely black, and then i’d shut down jefbot.com the next day. heheheh. awesome!
He must have some pretty powerful batteries to transmit over such a range!
i’m pretty sure those things have atomic batteries, speearr. 🙂
is it me or does this give me a bit of dejavu – remember the movie click anyone?
then again that remote is awesome………………
not as awesome as the remote in that movie, JF3! couldn’t adam sandler control time & space with that thing? still, jefbot’s is pretty cool… heheh.
^_^ Love your guest comic on nemu-nemu 😀
thanks, DJ! i had a blast doing it. 🙂
So creative!! XD
thanks for the love, Mary!
nice mini cooper convertible shout out in panel 2!
yep! go mini!
Oh god. God help us all if he EVER got the remote from “click” and didn’t realize it’s power.
And the double green light panel…oh god…I am imagining what kind of chaos would happen and how many people would die.
Does that make me a bad person? Because I’m laughing my ass off at the possibilities.
i hear ya about imagining all the chaos, kemix: i’m still thinking about all the chaos and destruction jefbot could cause with that remote. i gotta push those thoughts out of my head though, and keep jefbot oblivious to the power. at least for now. 🙂
Lol where can I pick up these ‘atomic batteries’ and should I be worried about proper disposal methods?
well, they’re kind of hard to find, but you’d probably be able to pick one up for 250 million dollars or so on the black market, speearr. and yeah, you wouldn’t want to dispose of them in a trash compactor, but the Department of Nuclear Energy may just pick it up for you if you gave them a call. 😉
Man, that is TRULY universal!
i think all universal remotes operate like this, don’t they, JK?
