Okay, so maybe bot isn’t exactly right in the head, yet, but when was he ever completely “fine” anyway? At least he’s out of the apartment now, thinking about getting a new place, so that’s progress, right? And he’s envisioning the Cornfather as the pokémon, Bulbasaur, when it could’ve been way worse. Now if he starts having visions of Mr. Mime, it’s time to start worrying.
Gonna keep this short. My car’s in the shop for a little maintenance and I gotta pick it up before they close. Have a great weekend!
Firsties! Now, my little servant, where have you hid my shades? bot, don’t make your master angry now!
Thebogeyman! i do believe this is your first Firsting, is it not? as you anticipated, you have achieved the Shades of Firsting, and here they are! wear them well: these are a twin to the very ones Squirtle wore in the animated series:
I feel the same way when I actually company, I swear I actually asked my friend if he was real! He was drunk so he wasn’t sure lmao
ha! wow, your friend sounds even crazier than bot here, Erebus! at least bot’s questioning things outside himself, but for your friend to question his own reality is pretty warped. now i gotta know exactly what he was drinking. 😉
The better question is in fast what wasn’t he drinking, he decided to come to my house because it was closer then his. The next morning he didn’t even remember how he got here lmao
stupid browser ^ thats me lol
at least he had enough sense to come to your house, Erebus! i hope he wasn’t driving!!!
Aww, The Bulbacorn (Cornasaur?) doesn’t look like he believes ‘bot in that last panel…
you’re right – perhaps he sees the glint of madness in bot’s eyes, Joe!
I’m hoping nobody actually needs a link to bulbapedia to tell that’s a bulbasaur, but you never know…
JEFbot brings such a range of readers (young and young-at-heart, geeky and non-so-geeky) that i figure i’d cover my bases, NN!
I will just say that things could have gone a lot worse than a Mr. Mime. The Cornfather could have been a Jynx. That would have just been downright creepy.
ooh, yeah – Jynx is totally creepy, D25! and let us not speak of Probopass.
I wonder what pokemon bot would be…
oOOoh… charmander’s pretty awesome, Soul Man.
Yeah, he was always my personal favorite.
I’m old school I stopped after 250 so I would have to say either dragonair due to the scrawn or maybe psyduck due to the insanity
psyduck’s actually a pretty good call, Anonymous! although let’s hope bot doesn’t go that crazy. 🙂
yeeeeah that was me again I switched browsers and forgot to put my info back in lol oops
good question, Charlie. hmmm… my favorite pokémon’s still Pikachu, but i’m not sure which one bot would transmogrify into. zoroark, cuz he’s a trickster? lucario, maybe? ugh. let’s just go with pikachu. 🙂
Seeing pokemon in real life?
That’s totally never happened to me >>
yeah, right, dj! not only do you see pokémon in your own life, you’ve graciously sent some of those pokémon to see for myself! (thanks again for the mini bidoof and pachi, btw. i still have ’em in my office.) 🙂
I can just imagine the next line: “So, where do you want to go to lunch, Bulbasaur?”
If he orders salad……
ha! and then bot pulls out a pokéball and orders bulbacorn to “return!”, Soul Man. 🙂
Awwww! KAWAII! Is he gonna sing the Bulba-bye for JB? I can imagine Jef as an Aipom. Me, I’m a Vaporeon (did I just over-geek here, or is it just me?).
jefbot could totally be an aipom, KB! (my sis always did say i looked like a little monkey.) and overgeeking is always welcome. (and vaporeon is a pretty awesome pokémon to be.) 🙂
I would say I am Umbreon due to the fact I like the dark and there’s a huge meaning behind him in Japanese mythology and in high school I was the only one in class to figure out the story.
The story goes….On a dark and stormy night (no joke i think that like started here) an old traveler came upon a cave inhabited by a monkey an otter a jackal and a hare. The animals felt sorry for the man and wanted to help him. The monkey gathered fruits from the trees and the otter collected fish, while the jackal wrongfully pilfered a lizard and a pot of milk-curd. The rabbit, who knew only how to gather grass, instead offered its own body, throwing itself into a fire the man had built. The rabbit, however, was not burnt. The old man revealed himself to be Śakra (god) and, touched by the rabbit’s virtue, drew the likeness of the rabbit on the moon for all to see. It is said the lunar image is still draped in the smoke that rose when the rabbit cast itself into the fire.
The story shows that self sacrifice is the highest tenement in Japanese beliefs. I thought maybe you would like to know =)
You beat me in the geek-factor. You should TOTALLY do that as an article on the Bulbapedia. Someone there was doing articles on the Real World inspirations for Pokemon, but they stopped. It’s sad. I really loved the mythology and stuff.
Awww! I love pokemon!
I think jefBOT passed “still pretty fine”-line and went straight for the “pokemon crazy”-line! Atleast you get to try drawing other things than just humans thanks to jef BOT going a little crazy, eh Jeff?
yep! i love when the strip goes a little into the fantasy realm, DAS – whether it’s bot losing his mind a bit, or going into his dreams, or him fighting bad guys with a scarf – since it lets me stretch the old drawing muscles and learn new things. 🙂
Sorry man I just can’t find a facebook page for the comic or you or even a fan page that I knew you legitimately approved.
It’s gonna be a pretty awesome picture. I’ll even wear my awesome hat with it. And you’ll be blinded excessive awesome.
Nevermind. Got it.
cool, Infamous Nefarious! can’t wait to see it. and while i don’t manage that Facebook page myself, it’s in the very capable (and sexy) hands of the *ahem* “JEFbot Harem.” 😀
*blush* oh you!
This is nonsense, if anything cornfather more closely represents none other than snorlax.
i almost made him snorlax, John, but went for bulbasaur since i thought bulba looked a little more odd. but snorlax is one of my faves!
Bulbacorn is SO CUTE!!! I could certainly handle being that kind of crazy. Seeing everyone as Pokemon would be totally ok with me, compared to Ren and Stimpy. That had to have been fun deciding which Pokemon the Cornfather would be. I’ll have to ask Taran his thoughts before he sees this and see if he comes up with the same thing. 😀
UGGGH! I was sooooo close, before I saw this strip, i said that if I had to make cornfather any pokemon i would make him an IVYSAUR. great strip bot, i love the bulbacorn!
i’ll take your choice of “ivysaur” as a sign that we share some of the same brainwaves, taranchilla! i mean, bulbacorn could totally evolve into ivycorn if corn and bot do some more adventuring as Chubman & Scrawn, methinks. 🙂
glad you found Bulbacorn so cute, shanna! yes, seeing everyone as a pokémon could be the kind of crazy i could go for. of course, i’d wanna “catch ’em all” which would make me a little more obsessive than i already am. happy to get Taranchilla’s thoughts on the Cornfather!
Following up on my comment to the last comic, I considered the possibility that Hawaiian Shirt Guy had disguised himself as Cornfather to get back at Jefbot when he was most vulnerable.
heheh. good theory, Rainey. we’ve never actually seen both of them together at the same. hmmm… 😉
AHHHHHH JEFFF!!!! <3 That BulbaCorn is too cutee!! I just stared at him for a good minute before I read the comic. So cute. (: Anyway, if Bot is going crazy I'm glad he has his pokemon by his side. (; Too cute. <3
Spin off where ‘bot goes on an imaginary pokemon journey pleeeeaaaasssseeeee?
See, and I know almost nothing about Pokemon. So I thought Cornfather had just turned into a very cute little monster, maybe a Muppet-ish character. But no, Pokemon makes more sense. 😉
I’m not exactly sure what a bulba thing is but it’s adorkable! Awesome art work per usual.
Good Evening Botiverse. Not sure where I was when this posted but I’m getting ready for bed now. Hope everyone has sweet dreams.
I wish my delusional hallucinations turned people into pokemon….
Oh dear, looks like Cornfather got there in time or he’s too late
Oh dear, looks like Cornfather got there in time or he’s too late. Incidentally, I would’ve pictured Cornfather as the watermelon launcher from PvZ
WARRRGGGHHH… I DEMAND A BULBACORN PLUSHYIESS…………..
DO NOT DISAPPOINT ME.
On a side note, this happened to me once, but with gyrados. Go figure.
Btw bot, sorry for not frequenting ur sit enough. SWTOR and my newborn baby taking too much of my time.
Now, off to go and make my baby a JEFBIES.
Congrats on the new BOTling! Pics!!!! Boy or girl? Little ones name? I need details!
hey pixie…he’s a boy and his name is Gideon Aing(pronounced as EYEING) (because most of my fave character has the name Gideon (Gideon Ravenor, Jason Gideon, too name a few)
i know that its late but he was born on the 8th of February at 1.34am.
ill post the pics later
Good thing he’s no Charmander. Being on fire is not cool.
I respectfully disagree…
Wild Cornfather appeared! What will Jefbot do?
Just when I think Cornfather can’t possibly be more adorable . . .
Haha 😉 love it!
Hilarious. Run! Get a new place ASAP! lol
I want a green pokemon!
Bulbacorn. inspiring awww’s in everyone everywhere.
