Either I'm Psychic, Or Robot Sharks Are Just Plain Funny

January 9, 2012 at 11:13 am

A long time ago I wrote a short story that involved robot sharks.  It was one of the first pieces I sold, and I admit I still like that story, years later. 

So I was pleasantly surprised to discover today's Dilbert comic features a similar idea.

I think Alice is on to something here.  But obviously the correct term for a robot shark must be "mechalodon".  Duh.

[ETA: Special note for Pam Who Knows Who She Is:  Uh, don't follow that link.  Unless you already did.  In which case, sorry.]

Robot sharks are, of course, funny. From those wires dangling from your head we know that you are psychic.

I guess the third option is that I'm a time traveler. Which is not mutually exclusive with the others, now that you point it out.

Thank you for the heads-up, dude. Even comic book sharks are nightmare-inducing. Not as bad as "Great Barrier Reef" or "Earthflight" (yes, they managed to shoe-horn Great White footage into a bird documentary, don't ask me how), but still bad enough. "Come Dancefight" is one of my favorite stories of yours, but I still have trouble reading it. :)
