Is Oranges eating cereal from the box? At least Fembot doesn't have to eat _anyone's_ sleepy morning cooking.

That dog's nose is/those dogs' noses are ridiculous.

Also I like everything about this strip. Actually, I think I like every strip with Lil'E and Pebbles. Is there a bad one? Don't tell me if there is.

Every single strip they're in is made of awesome and I refuse to believe otherwise.

Relating to that dog, is it a puppy or is just a really small dog?

I don't think we know. He conjured it, trying to recreate the Devil's dog, but it's always looked the same. It could be either.

Well, yay that Fembot's OK. Not the *most* comforting place to wake up in, with all the devil-worship-based interior design, but at least the faces are friendly. Possibly too friendly in the case of the puppy, but still.

Also, is it just me or is anyone else concerned about Pebbles' always munching on sugar-based cereal products?

So just to clarify, in the first few panels, is Fembot dreaming about herself being self-destructed? Why is it that Milton can't just do that to her like he did to Weapon F? Is it because pleasure bots aren't programmed with that failsafe like assassin bots are? (I bet they will be from now on...)

I don't think the nightmare was about self-destruction, at least not in the controlled way that Weapon F went. More likely just the fact that she's an android at all. Also, there's [probably] some psychological subtext to her "falling apart," having just seen what she's seen.

Yeah, I read it as not self-destruction, which would presumably involve an explosion, but more... a realisation of her own mortality. That she too is made up of bits that are destined to break and fall apart and so on. Not a happy dream for any of us, but at least she wakes up to pleasant company, a free recharge and some Froot Loops.

I assume it's a puppy. I see it as a correlation between Lil' E and his dad. Lil' E is presumably still pretty young, so it'd make sense that his dog would be young too (unlike his Dad's Cerberus, which is full-size).

Either way, it's cute.

Well, if she's self-destructing in a dream, it could correlate to the psychological meaning behind a bomb in a dream.

My dream dictionary says this:
"The dream may be telling you something about potentially explosive situation you have to deal with in your waking life. Alternatively, it could be something within yourself, such as a desire to explode with anger about an issue that's affecting you. Similarly, the bomb could represent repressed desires and drives that are likely to explode if not dealt with."

Fear is also a pretty logical assumption.
