Well, it looks like Sarah and I survived the holiday rush, and now we can take a few days and enjoy the holiday ourselves. In spite of all the work, we do manage to have a little fun here and there... like the following.
Back in November we picked up this funny little animatronic marching penguin christmas... thing. You know, one of those decorations that sing and dance and are used by children and morally challenged adults to torture and drive the sanity away from the rest of us (i believe that consumer robotics is one of the 14 deadly evils of the modern age). It was cute, it had three Penguins that spun and march and danced around while singing a rough and tough military-like tune. Sarah had an idea.
"hey, lets put ph33rbots over them and we can have dancing ph33rbots!"
So, after much experimentation and finally sitting down to assemble the thing (and changing the batteries) we completed our little project. We sorta turned it into a video christmas card and uploaded it to Youtube:
(You can view a larger version and whatnot overat the youtube site.)
We hope you enjoy it, it's kind of fun (especially when they start knocking things off of each other). It was a fun project and i admit that I spent some time working on this rather than the comic over the past two days. Hey, it's Christmas, i can goof off a little. :)
Sarah and I wish you and your friends and families a safe and happy holiday!
Holiday schedule - comic 947 should be up shortly, i'll have a DPD for Christmas that i'll post over the weekend, then we return to our regular schedule on Wednesday.
