It’s not called The Angry Scarf for nothin’! It basically just wiped out an entire alien species… or did it?
For those not familiar with the scarf, it was given to jefbot by his sister Xinda, way back in JEFbot.02!
you got it, Eddie! take a look at the world through these: 😎
Thanks for the glasses. And nice narrative, the reanimation reminded me of the film evolution 😀
gotta love shampoo it a excellent anti alien solution and it has it side uses like making your hair dandruff free and shiny
and since it has splashed all over the place and on everyone (with chinks of the alien) it made all their hair shiny and as would Zohan say “silky smooth”
Well done, Eddie.
Love this strip, very cool. Very pretty and sciencey (shut up, it is a word!) – you know just what us girls like ^_^ “Talk nerdy to me, baby” *chuckles*
Life, several billion years in the making, v’s The Angry Scarf, infused with the intense fury of its creator. Considering the crator was Xinda, they never stood a chance. Poor things.
Still… they do sort of remind me of the newly hatched “worms” from Dreamcatcher… so they could have attempted to take over the world, as they’d previously had nowhere to expand to and then they awoke to find they had a whole planet and… Oh! The horror!! It was a good thing The Angry Scarf took a pre-emptive strike.
Or, you know, they could have been good. In which case: Bad scarf! Very bad scarf!
heheh. i can’t help but love the “sciencey” girls. 😉
and well put re: billions of years of evolution vs. Xinda. those comet dwellers definitely never had a chance. heheh. although – we may see the little guys in the future so don’t count them out just yet! and you’re right, we don’t know what their intentions would’ve been, so the Angry Scarf might’ve just saved the planet. god forbid they had gotten into JEFbot and exited his body in the same manner those Dreamcatcher aliens did. *shudder* or yes, they may have ushered in a new period of peace and prosperity for our planet. ha! i guess we’ll never know…
A new victory of The Angry Scarf vs billion years of evolution. Naw is all clear, TAS is a Weapon of Mass Destruction.
Next chapter: The Angry Scarf vs Zombies! 😉
a WMD indeed, ContableEnorme!!! and you can be sure the Angry Scarf’s not done yet! …although i can’t guarantee any TAS vs ZOMBIE action. 😉
i’m telling Mr Hawkins!!
i found it pretty funny that all the news about Stephen Hawking talking about the origins of life came out right at the time of this strip, t_d! don’t tell him this is how it really happened!
well angry scarfs know anger. it had to stop its competitor before it became the new top anger source
nice theory, Drakeye! it would make sense for the Angry Scarf to snuff out its competition. 🙂
OK, is this in the past, making this the life form that is responsible for those lights in the sky on the beach or is it a completly new one?
completely new one, Maryz. the origin of the “beach lights” will be revealed in a later JEFbot. …though expect repercussions in the future from the events of this strip.
Brilliant detail! …and I love the last frame! Outstanding and hilarious!
thanks, Funnyshaffer! glad you liked it.
The artwork and coloring is absolutely lovely. I honestly thought the punchline was going to be something like, “Evolution beat incredible odds over billions of years and the end result is a species who invented slapstick . . . ”
But I like yours better—leave it to Xinda to create an anti-heroic scarf! XD
i’m glad you liked the artwork, Sarah W! thanks! and your punchline totally works on a bunch of levels. the possiblities are endless! here’s mine: “…and the end result is a species who invented Snuggies.
hooray for anti-heroic scarves! (and Xinda.) 🙂
XD poor scarf. I think sometime this year before it gets cold, I’m going to try to make a longcat scarf 🙂
ha! if you make a longcat scarf you’ve GOT to send me a pic, DJ! you should make one out of tan yarn so it looks like a furret. 😉
Or I can just make a brown and tan one 🙂
Wow….Jeff just…WOW! The strip is briliantly drawn.
And I completely agree with the Soul Sistah of Geekitude…”TALK NERDY TO ME!” But yeah not uberly (Shut up it’s a WORD! I swear!) techibabble. Remember, We are pretty and we like sparklie thing and shoes And video games, And chocolate….. What were we talking about again?
OMG I love the angry scarf! I’m knitting an anxiety scarf. (Oral surgery today) and it’s already 4 inches long. I don’t knit much so that’s a lot for me.
Have a fantaburiffic weekend everyone! See you back here on Tuesday!
thanks, Pix! so happy you dug the artwork. 😀
and don’t tease me talking about video games and chocolate. mmMMMm… chocolate. and while i’ll try and keep the uberness of my techytalk to a minimum, feel free to pour it on me!
yikes! oral surgery. ugh. just thinking about it gives me the shivers. had to have myself put under just to have a couple teeth pulled. let me know how it goes. hope your scarf doesn’t get too long from all that anxiety.
hope you had a fantaburiffic (now is that a word? i don’t care. i like it!) weekend yourself!
LOL! Yay! Angry scarf is back! At our house, anger is taken out on mops and vacuum cleaners and stuff. Apparently, we haven’t had enough anger in the house of late.
heheh. i need some of that kind of anger management, Stan Yan! anything to get my bedroom in order. 😉
I always call extra long scarves like that “Dr. Who scarves”. (I grew up watching Tom Baker Dr. Who. One of my aunts even knitted/crocheted me one… not quite as long as TAS though!)
i got a couple emails and tweets mentioning Dr. Who’s scarf, Vik-Thor! i remember seeing images of it, but unfortunately, my real Who-knowledge only goes back as far as Eccleston. once i catch up on all the recent episodes, i’m thinking i might have to go back and watch the Baker episodes. do they still hold up?
Nice to see the Angry Scarf (la bufanda enojado) again.
also, love the PLOP, Aw Crap. Good comic timing.
glad you dug its reappearance, 11TN! also glad you translated the Angry Scarf’s name for our spanish-speaking readers – they’ll know what to scream when it slinks into their rooms at night…
I smell UFOs!!!! I finally get to find out what happened to the hampsters and see the coonclusion of epic romance!!!!!
while the little space travelers in this strip aren’t related to the ones in the UFOs, the epic romance betwix bot and cel will continue on in the next storyline, Ecnassianer! as far as Musashi’s story goes, you’ll have to wait a bit longer.
I feel happier AND smarter for having read this!!
and that’s “one to grow on!” sir Payton!
…, you either just prevented the flood. or killed a new species, in anycase GAWD DAMMIT MAN! I WANTED TO DO THAT!!
ha! sorry to take that away from you Anime fan. next time a new alien species falls to earth i’ll give you first dibs.
You’d better. We southerners pride our selves on being able to deal out great amounts of decimation in a matter of seconds. Being robbed of the oppurtunity to annihalate a new species is a major insult.
So that’s what happened to my old scarf! And here I thought K9 was using it as a blanket.
different scarf, The Doctor. K-9’s probably still using yours as his blanket. this one’s much, much more angry. 😉
Angry scarf just has to be sentient, there is no other explanation.
of course it is it might even be the new HAL
heheh. it’s not really sentient, Estongdakila. the Angry Scarf just runs on pure, dark emotion, which it inherited from Xinda. so either it just coincidentally fell out of bot’s laundry basket or its strong emotions pushed it to kill those microbes. no way to know. 🙂
I feel stupid. Jefbot is soooo smart, talented, and smart. They need use this strip in biology classes and art classes alike! Fantastic work, bot! Simply fantastic! I think it’s gorgeous, informative, and funny. Way to knock it outta the universe! I’m glad you’re my roommate so you can continue to destroy any life that might be sprouting up in our apartment.
sadly, i think i may be creating life in our apartment, MC! (remember those bug eggs i tried to hatch? or the arachnid i was keeping alive behind the toilet?)
wow! glad you liked the strip so much! “gorgeous, informative and funny,” are adjectives that describe what this comic strip aspires to be!
How could the Angry Scarf do such a thing? To wipe out that poor alien species when it took so long for conditions to be just right. But then again, maybe Xinda saved us all from a horrible fate! Naaaaaah. 🙂 Or wait, maybe it isn’t dead and it is going to be on the scarf and end up on Jefbot’s neck, and then it will grow into his brain and turn him into evil zombie Jefbot!!! 😉
Now if it were Jean-Luc Piccard, he would find out at the last possible moment that he was about to extinguish that spark of alien life and he and Dr. Crusher would find a way to save it. But hey, this is Jefbot we’re talking about. Jefbot and the evil Xinda Angry Scarf!
This is a very cool strip, despite my weird ramblings above. I think I’m a bit wacked out on too many antihistamines at the moment. 😛 I love the pic in panel 3 – and that you made it look like plant-like life! Go plants!
well maby a deadite jeffbot would be cool. sertainly didnt bother ash to have one of his own
If it had been Spock & Kirk, Spock would have attempted to shield & protect the newly discovered lifeform… unless it’s threatening the captain, in which case shoot & shoot to kill!
yep, that wasn’t a very nice thing for the Angry Scarf to do, Shanna – but maybe it was all just coincidence! …which still doesn’t help the comet riders, any. as far as your hypotheses are concerned, you may be on to something – though i’m not sure we’ll be seeing “evil zombie jefbot” anytime soon. which begs the question: would the Cornfather be able to kill his friend if jefbot were a zombie!? hmmm…
yes, it’s too bad Jean-Luc wasn’t around because jefbot totally violated the prime directive there! (even though it was accidental. next time maybe jefbot shouldn’t pile so many clothes into that laundry basket.)
glad you liked the strip. i always love your weird ramblings so keep up with the antihistamines! ;D
I’ve returned! Just as the angry scarf has! Good to be back in JEFbot’s world here! I was going through withdrawal not having my JB fix! I loved all of the dialogue in today’s strip, and now I’m really looking forward to seeing what this possible new alien species might be up to. Might they have anything to do with the disappearance of Mu?!? Me thinks so, but time will tell. 😛
And is that Code Red Mountain Dew that helped reanimate the alien species?!? I think Code Red Mountain Dew, I think Zombieland! (My boyfriend and I’s all time favorite movie) Was a nice treat to come back to a beautifully and brilliantly executed double decker strip, dealing with alien life forms and all the sci-fi dialogue. And I see JB does his own laundry, something that will make one lucky lady (Cel perhaps?) very happy one day. Missed everyone!*cyber e-hugs for all*
hooray! was totally getting worried about you, Spanky. glad you’re back! 😀
you’ll definitely find out more about the microbes in future strips. they aren’t related to the “beach” aliens, but they will have their own little place in the JEFbot Universe. just wait!
and that’s totally Code Red Mountain Dew, Spanky! i’m impressed that you spied it! heheh. was gonna make it LiveWire Mountain Dew but i thought that it would be too “on the nose” and i like Code Red better anyway. 🙂
and while i do my own laundry, i do take it over to my mom’s every sunday to use her washing machine/dryer while we’re having our weekly family dinner. i just hate wasting time at laundromats! it is kinda peaceful and i can read or play DS or PSP, but it just takes way too long.
*cyber hug* back atcha. welcome back!
WB Spanky! We missed you.
ha I remember the scarf! I’m sensing another comic strip storyline? the scarf comes to life!
…actually I have a bad feeling on that one >_>
dun dun DUNNNN! your senses are correct, Steve. the scarf and the microbes will be back in a future storyline! but first we gotta get back to cel.
Can that thing bark, sit and play dead? thought so….
heheh. not yet, JF#300. but maybe once it evolves…
Wow! I was getting all caught up in this great story, and then… plop! Excellent work 🙂
the story will continue, Alana! you might have to wait for a couple months but this storyline definitely hasn’t ended at PLOP! 🙂
Looks like that scarf still has some anger stored in its stitches. Do you actually have a scarf that long?
i do, Fijiman! my sister Xin- uh, Linda, actually knitted me a looOOOong scarf like that a few years back. i still have it and still use it. it’s great! but SOOOO angry…
You got me! I thought it was the beginning of an alien invasion of sorts… it has a grand look!
thanks, #1JF! and in a way you’re right – it was the beginning and the end of an alien invasion of sorts. heheh.
“it all started with a big bang (bang!)”
this comic reminds me of that show 😀
people keep telling me i should watch The Big Bang Theory, Leithal, as there seems to be plenty of similarities between it and JEFbot. i’ve only watched one episode that my sister brought over. was pretty funny – a halloween episode where they all dressed as The Flash, i seem to remember? liked it, but maybe i should stay away from it so as not to taint the idea pool. 🙂
How much longer is it going to take on that experiment? I’m sure everyone would be glad to hear the results.
when i get the ingredients, i’ll let you know, ND.
Wow. Incredible cliffhanger!
thanks, Annie! will be quite some time before this turn of events is resolved.
Damn, I was hoping the mention of space would mean Cel was coming back…
she is, Kat! it won’t be in direct relation to this strip, but the next storyline will feature cel in a big way. 🙂
I feel compelled to say that the alien species should read up on the Zommunist Manifesto: A Zombie Guide to Human Combat, written by the talented artist of Sins Venials. I mean, what kind of revenge would be more sweet than an alien zombie plague?
BTW, it’s one of those books you actually have to pay for. Or, for this month only, you can send in a piece of horror themed Sins fan art to the author and he’ll send you a link to download a free PDF. The link to his site is in my name, now.
thanks for the link, ND! that Manifesto sounds like it could come in handy!
So you’d be on the zombies’ side?! You traitor!
an alien zombie plague would be pretty sweet, NeoDarklight, there’s no denying it. 🙂
I think you killed my uncle Louie…
XD He was a slob anyway
well, at least the World can count on THE Scarf to keep us safe from unknow alien forms. That counts in my book! Stay away from Earth you alien fiends!
*diabolical laugh of doom*
figures you would think they’re evil, Sonitan! what if they had come on a mission of peace?
actually, probably best not to let them have a chance at getting us first. *evil/diabolical laugh of doom*
What really scares me is that I’m getting into knitting and I struggled for a while with the decision of whom to give my first knitted scarf to…
When I finally reached the answer, I realized that it would be a perfect gift …. for my brother.
What the hell…. And he wants me to make it long, too.
Aww, man. You just washed the Angry Scarf and now it’s all sticky.
