Not much chance he’s gonna be a hitman.” Have to leave that up to Ahnolde the Tuhminatuh. cmblake6 Feb 20 2018 at 1:03 am Chris, this strip is awesome. Straight up, awesome. Fun is good. WayneM Feb 20 2018 at 9:01 am Agreed in spades. So much fun! NotYetInACamp Feb 20 2018 at 1:13 am Jeeves earned name. Like Two Dogs . … .. never mind. … that was happenstance. Dances With Wolves earned name. Deplorable B Woodman Feb 20 2018 at 1:13 am Now, was that R100’s “personality” to begin with, or did he mimic that from memory because that’s his new name and job? Either way, funny, funny, funny. MasterDiver Feb 20 2018 at 8:10 am So if R-100 is Jeeves who plays Wooster? Zar Belk! Sabba Hillel Feb 20 2018 at 1:25 am I think that the name from fits better as being derived from the Liaden universe of Sharon Lee & Steve Miller. After all, their Jeeves is an AI with fully awesome capabilities. It also is capable of running planet level defenses. Tagmec Feb 20 2018 at 1:27 am R100 should read up on Wodehouse: fussy he could be, but Jeeves was a “gentleman’s personal gentleman” (i.e. a valet, not a butler); also, he was unquestionably the hero of those stories. He was always about five steps ahead of everybody – okay, not a high bar with the likes of Bertie Wooster, but still – and totally unflappable. You could do a lot worse for a name to carry. Bill G Feb 20 2018 at 6:09 am I haven’t read Wodehouse, but Jeeves sounds like Henry in Asimov’s ‘Tales of the Black Widowers’. eon Feb 20 2018 at 6:37 am See “TV Tropes- Battle Butler”; http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/BattleButler The quintessential example was Mervyn Bunter, gentleman’s gentleman to Lord Peter Wimsey. Wimsey’s wartime platoon sergeant, he was a fully-trained and combat experienced infantryman, sniper and artillery forward observer- as well as a a photographer and watercolorist. The perfect batman, whom you wouldn’t want to cross anymore than your would THE Batman. clear ether eon Olddog Feb 20 2018 at 7:21 am True. Jeeves was the only one who knew what he was doing. Lifeofthe Mind Feb 20 2018 at 1:55 am Better Jeeves than C-3PO. That droid was a twit. gafling Feb 20 2018 at 9:18 am I have always maintained that a group of ‘ED-209’s would be adequate border security. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9IscZMYYw0 JackDeth 72 Feb 20 2018 at 2:32 am A very nice touch with “Jeeves”. You could almost sense his nose being raised with his, “Well, really!” One of my favorite BBC imports was ‘Jeeves and Wooster”. And one of the main reasons I avoided Hugh Laurie’s later ‘House’. And the fear that Mr. Laurie would revert back to Bertie’s archetypal British Twit and start belting out old Cole Porter tunes, badly. Though it would be kind of neat to have “Jeeves” use Stephen Frye’s voice to politely critique Skye’s signing at the Double D Blues Club. blue_quasar Feb 20 2018 at 3:40 am If you’ve ever read PG Wodehouse you’ll know that Jeeves was a bit of a poonhound and a player who wasn’t above engaging his social “betters” in Machiavellian schemes behind the scenes (and entirely without their knowledge) to take his well-used but now-tiresome sweethearts off his hands. Bill Feb 20 2018 at 5:21 am Seems to me pissing the robut off is a bad idea. Just sayin”. Hoosier Native Feb 20 2018 at 8:04 am Did anyone else besides me hear Jeeves’ last comment in C-3PO’s voice? Richard Feb 20 2018 at 8:29 am Don’t forget that Bruce Wayne’s Alfred was an ex SAS man.

Boobie the Rocket Dog Feb 20 2018 at 8:47 am This site has the most interesting comment exchange. Learn something new every d Iowa Jim Feb 20 2018 at 9:23 am Jeeves was not a butler. He was a gentleman’s personal gentleman. Just Joe Feb 20 2018 at 10:22 am Grrrr, I’m not sure I care for the way this ‘tin man’ leers at our Sam. He may be needing a ‘chip adjustment’. JTC Feb 20 2018 at 10:33 am Well she did tell him to weld on a pair. Beware unintended consequences m’lady. TomD Feb 20 2018 at 11:32 am Reminds me a little of that droid in the Star Wars story of a couple years ago- Rogue One. Pamela Feb 20 2018 at 2:22 pm Where is his Bow Tie and how is his knowledge of fine Sipping Whiskeys and Bourbons plus Mixed Drinks…. JackDeth 72 Feb 20 2018 at 7:51 pm With the sparkling white linen cloth he drapes over his left forearm, M’lady. armedandsafe Feb 20 2018 at 5:58 pm Higgins! (Magnum P. I. ) JackDeth 72 Feb 20 2018 at 7:52 pm *Ahem* “Zeus!… Apollo!” Gina Feb 20 2018 at 6:28 pm Love the look on Zed’s face, like “You ain’t gonna win this argument ol Son”. JackDeth 72 Feb 20 2018 at 7:53 pm That comes from years of experience and battles lost, Gina. Bob in Houston-Vast Right Wing Basket of Deplorable! Feb 20 2018 at 8:02 pm hell, I figured the Blues Club opening night toon would be the Sunday strip to allow for more strippage, either way, looking forward to it.
