Automated Ice Cream

As you can tell from my total lack of effort on the non comic posts that it's been a pretty hectic week. Will next week be any better? Probably not but at least you can bank on there being two new comics up.

I love how technology makes our lives easier by improving existing things making them easier, faster and generally better. There are on ocassion some instances where I think they overreach:

The Electric Can opener - A manual can opener never slips off half way through and is actually faster than the electric type.

The Doorbell - Knocking has always worked for me. I wonder how long before downloadable doorbell ringtones will be available. And when this catches on, know that I will never ring it so don't bother asking me to. Also if for some reason in the future doorbells come with a text message option I will not be held responsible if I ever catch you sending a text message from your doorbell.

The motorized Ice cream cone will now be added to the list.

Takes a licking and keeps ice cream from dripping! Load the removable dish with ice cream, push the button and the ice cream turns while you enjoy one of the world's most popular treats. No more licking around the edges of a drippy cone. Fun for all ages. Removable dish is dishwasher safe. Requires two double AA batteries (not included).

Why does this have a button? That seems like just as much work as licking. Button in...button out...button in... I'm exhausted just thinking about it. I think I'll just tape it down.

I believe that this ice cream cone comes in a deluxe model where you simply skewer an entire brick of ice cream and all you have to do is peel back the cardboard and enjoy. This model still requires batteries but does come with free insulin shots for your fat diabetic ass.
