The System 586: Smell Fear

Following the The System 394: Inverse Law of Computing.

I really couldn’t decide which face was funnier for the last panel. I decided the creepier one was the way to go. But here’s both, for reference:

Anyone else for cat shirts!? They’re still on sale!

Most of you know my mom from the website. She comments on every post, responds to many of you, and generally weighs in whenever possible. In fact, some of you are probably here because she handed you one of the official System business cards at a convention or while she was performing some errand or, my personal favorite, if you met her while she was on vacation on a cruise ship taking her picture and she said that you might like her son and his comic (ACTUALLY HAPPENED). In fact, I was asked recently if I had a publicist, and my response was “other than my mother?”

Anyway, in case this post wasn’t obvious, today is her birthday. I won’t say exactly how old she is, but it’s old. Really old. I know, I should be nice to her due to her birthing me and her advanced age, but she is also a large fan of the truth, and the truth is that she’s older than blogs, YouTube, cell phones, most televisions, and even MySpace. Oh and dirt.

The best thing I can say is that we all have my mom to thank for much of the humor on this site, as it is her upbeat and quirky attitude that I inherited that has led to many of the comics seen here. Except for the puns, those were all Dad’s influence. Blame him.

Anyway, leave her a post in the comments! She’ll be reading and thrilled I’m sure.

Sorry, Mom. While it hasn’t happened in a while, you know it’s true.

Again, Connecticon! I’m there/here! Come by, there will be shirts, pins, and plenty of etc!

Remember about, oh, a month and a bit ago, when I stumbled upon a little thing called the CUPCAKE SANDWICH? At the time I announced a rather fun contest that more than a few people opted to enter. Entries poured in. Roger Ebert was intrigued (and RTed this post). Even Hurley from LOST got in on the action. And then, silence.

Behind the scenes, it was a harsh battle. A truly difficult decision rife with conflict and dissention. But finally, I am proud to announce that MY MOTHER HAS JUDGED THE CUPCAKE SANDWICH CONTEST.

RossMom, shown here not knowing how to turn on her camera.

After the jump and without further ado, I present to you RossMom’s deliberations and the results of the Cupcake Sandwich Contest.

Some of you long-time fans have noted the presence of a long-time lurker on the site. A commenter, known as “Rossmom”, seems to comment on just about every comic on the site. As most of you may know, this is in fact my mother. For a while I didn’t let her in on the project but the MINUTE I DID she began to post. Every day. On every comic. Ever.

This has since led to some interesting results. I’ve been asked many times at cons why I write these posts pretending to be my mother.  I’ve been asked whether my mom would comment on other people’s comments. I’ve also been asked (oddly enough) if she would attend some of these cons herself (lord help me).

From her perspective, she does not believe these stories. She does not believe that people actually read her comments much less go out of their way to find them. An email I got from her recently stated:

People really do talk to you about my comments? [...] Perhaps I should cease and desist commenting?

Clearly she hasn’t seen your love lately, but NOW IS YOUR CHANCE. Today, March 26th, is her birthday. What a perfect day to comment on this post and show her some love! Comment away, I’m sure she’ll reply back to some soon!

Clean up after yourself.  I am not your mother.
