RECOMMEND T-REX TO... THE INTERNET:
What are the haps my friends


August 15th, 2011: On Thursday I mentioned @dinosaurcomics for comics updates and @qwantz for chatting with T-Rex, where he'll reply with a random line of dialogue from the comics. In the time since then the internet has invented @qwantzshrink, an Eliza bot which psychoanalyzes @qwantz! And since they both reply to mentions, they go back and forth FOREVER.

In summary, a fictional character I made got turned into a computer program, and now another computer program exists solely to psychoanalyze it. If you wondered what being a cartoonist in the year 2011 is like I hope that last sentence answers some questions for you! IT IS AWESOME.

(I also discovered @cephalopods is new this weekend too but they are TOO CREEPY.)


GUESS WHAT JUST CAME OUT: IT'S MY NEW BOOK!! If you've ever wondered what you'd do if you were stranded in the past, wonder no longer! With HOW TO INVENT EVERYTHING, you'll reinvent civilization from scratch, no matter what time period you're in. You'll become the single most influential, decisive, and important person ever born. You'll make history...

...better.

Here's the trailer!
