Hah. This is a great page! True heaven on earth. Jim has all the luck with food, a sexy woman in an apron (panel 4 ftw), a lazy day with all the time in the world with said woman.

Right. Shutting up and launching soviet black out campaign. Deny, deny, deny.

Oh, I was sighing at the loveliness of your imagery, obviously!

Ah. You can practically touch my words. Yeah. It's the only thing anyone's touching..

Err how about that five year plan? And those new government posters with Chairman Miwa wearing nothing but an officer's cap?

..Actually, that sounds like a great idea. "Dont be lonely, comrade! Everyone's in bed with our glorious Chairwoman Miwa!"

Ah, the old ability and need thing...






(psst... view; Miwa's getting restless again!)

I can't help it. It popped into my head and frankly only Miwa could fit the bill. Also it was a shameless hint but it was a sexy shameless hint! My two settings are equally dumb, negative and annoying or positive and...less annoying?

Actually, I could see Miwa taking over Nowhersville with the help of her triffids and the octopi. Soon her empire would include Boulder and large portions of the inter-mountain West!

I know. By the time I actually realized how good of an idea it was I had already posted it. It's times like this I regret not being able to draw anything better than a glue stick

@JasperWB: Something approximately like this perhaps?
JasperWB 26th Mar 2012, 11:47 PM edit delete reply
JasperWB
Kinda. An actual cap, not an ushanka or however that's spelled. I think that would look best. Not sure how she would be posed though. I can't narrow it down. I think the hammer and sickle painted across her chest would be interesting though.

Then if you really wanted to get crazy, imagine Mary fittingly in an American Cold War era poster to counter it with a pro America message. I'd have to percolate on exactly what that would say though.

See, if only I could draw. I'd gladly submit all this as fan art. But until we have someone aroused by squares with kinda straight but not so much sides, I can't do anything.

I think I know what you mean about the cap. I image searched 'commie girls' for this one. I'll try something different now. There was a dramatic Chairman Meow poster, but I digress...

@JasperWB: The hat is being elusive, but here and here, and here because it's amazing, and here because it's not!

@JasperWB: Ah Ha! Much closer to the mark and The Hat!

That is not a pancake, Jim.

That being said, Is that design what I think it is?

Every time she cooks for him she's wearing a little less!*




*Or a lot less...(Page 143)

Nekomimi! With skin and water safety class included we trust...*

Jim is designing true to form as well.**

A Beanbag for all seasons!***

Oh! and (panel 6), Hello Kitty! Or yes, it's still there...

So View is Jim just wanting a better look in day light or is he trying for morning sex?
duLapel 26th Mar 2012, 3:24 AM edit delete reply
duLapel
... or inspiration for a new design (that is...beyond training wheels ^_- )!
cattservant 26th Mar 2012, 4:18 AM edit delete reply
cattservant
Yeah, before this he was working with theoretical information...

Ha ha, he didn't have to invent anything like that. He generally just recommends the standard open-hardware solutions.
cattservant 26th Mar 2012, 4:26 AM edit delete reply
cattservant
Maybe after all this he will loosen up a bit and try a little artistic creativity!






(And "open-hardware" seems uncannily appropriate to the subject at hand... Hmnnn?!

Seems to me like the beanbag chair is about to get itself some more luvin's :)

It's probably saturated with pheromones by now. Maybe that's why Jim is bypassing a fresh hot breakfast for Hello Kitty!

Hey cattservant i'm sorry but i just can't see where in panel six that there's a reference to Hello Kitty, could you elaborate on this for me please? Anyway once again a great page.
cattservant 26th Mar 2012, 4:37 PM edit delete reply
cattservant
Hi ya! ravenor78: Good Morning, as you can see I really don't have anything better to do than sit around sifting through the Comments!
Hello Kitty is my obscure reference to what duLapel referred to as an "euphemistic cat" when Gretel got a "starter kit" with her new body. So when Jim lifts up Mary's apron I figured he is looking for her Kitty!
After all, this excitement is pretty new to him, and I wonder if that pancake is the first thing that is going to get eaten in today's new page?!

I've got a question for you (if you wish). Starting with Jst56strong's comment, do you think that view's "open-hardware" comment was a deliberate pun?
ravenor78 26th Mar 2012, 8:44 PM edit delete reply
ravenor78
Thanks, you have a good memory to go that far back, and with View it's most likely that yes it was intended.

Just noticed a little unintended (I think) irony: panel 3; "Sunny All Day" That is Miwa's weather forecast!*
