I think you mean "project it," not "protect it." This is actually funnier than the strip you posted as the proper strip. You should have gone with this one. Trust me.
Protect it works fine here. He's protecting the environment.
...and no one caught that cameo wasn't concurrent with even early tmbg??? what are you people, culturally deprived? oh wait, i get it, you all have lives, eh?
Oh. My God. I JUST got what you seem to be referencing with "That is the purpose of the goggles." Of course, I might be wrong, but I don't think I am.I love your work, Scott!
Obviously these future-genitals spontaneously fornicate with any radiation it encounters.
This causes the radiation to multiply, thus creating the ILLUSION that they have radioactive junk (but only when the codpieces are off).
And nobody's made a "the goggles do nothing" joke yet? For shame!
On another note...Radioactive Codpiece would make an awesome name for a rock band.
tmbg even in the future? so they're immortal!
You have obviously read Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep, AKA Blade Runner,by Philip K. Dick. Great book. Yeah. OK. That does seem like a coincidence.
I wonder why this is in the archives a week before the strip it's an epilogue to.
I assumed that was part of the joke.
