As the great River Song said,
There be big changes potentially in store for my favourite webcomic couple, but for those who aren't keeping up with the strip, I thought that I'd provide this helpful summary.

This plotline began some time back, when Robin DeSanto (former alien abductee who gets superspeed from consuming vast qualities of sugar) decides to invent a new type of breakfast cereal.

Wow, that's with the American version of Creme Eggs, imagine if they had the British ones, which are bigger and avaliable more than at Easter like the ones in the US are. Or at least in the area of the US I've visited often they are.

Skip closer to the present, when Congresswoman Robin is now in the lame duck period of her term of office, having been ousted whilst in the midst of some Drama-induced depression.

Manley, a guy whose name invokes the subtly of Robin's significant other Leslie Bean's name, is a guy who have appeared in a couple of previous strips, but despite his (disturbing) similarities to Robin, she's barely noticed he's there.

Despite this, the pair decide to work on Robin's legislation together, if only because everyone else in the House of Congress evidently hates her now. Probably because they're racists/homophobes.


Robin arrives back home, where all is not as it seems...


Ho ho ho, on the plus side, that must have been a heck of a sex tape in order to create a psuedo-utopian society, right? ...Nope, that doesn't make it better, if anything I'm even MORE sad!

Anyhoo, Shortpacked creator David Willis is back from his delayed honeymoon/Christmas break, so hopefully we'll see what actually happened and this was all some horrible, horrible example of bad journalism.

Hopefully. :(

Some nice moments in this.

Creme Eggs are usually available in the UK between December 26 (Though I hear tell of some being available in the week before Christmas which is just plain damn WRONG) and Easter

And my inner geek will balance the Big Bang jibe against the sweet, sweet notion of Transformers: Animated getting a season 4

Possibly they're only advertised in the Christmas to Easter period.

I'm in Australia, and I saw some in the first week of December 2010. Disgraceful! I've never seen them before Boxing Day before.

poor Robin. You know this is sad for her too. Her first time is on a sex tape that she can't remember.

I always said all the world's problems would be solved if hot lesbians and curious bisexual everywhere recorded themselves having sex, but this isn't quite what I had in mind.

Sadly, the Nobel Prize isn't awarded posthumously.

Note to self: Must make Cadbury egg cereal happen for real.

If they were MINIATURE eggs, sure. Full-size ones would just result in... unpleasantness.

Well, she does have kinda the best excuse in the world. She was on major sugar overload while bringing about world peace - who could argue with that?

One can hardly blame her for being just a little bit bewildered. At least the second time she KNEW what she was getting into. Imagine what might happen if she tries it a third time!

I remember getting Cadbury eggs in the UK back when we visited in April, two years ago. I didn't know they were rare and seasonal, and to think I gorged on them with my only thought being "as long as Europe keeps supplying these, I can get em from my bro whenever he comes back home".

Before I saw the images I seriously thought this was about Batman's sidekick and Leslie Tomkins.
