    Tim also misunderstood when franked asked him to give him a hand. Frank got rid of him after the second time that happened.

    Kinda reminds me of that vicious plant that Frank had Wayne taking care of.

    You mean he’s not a twilight character?

    What about the pale skin, and empty, hollow eyes of someone who had lost his soul?

    (ok, I guess that last part is par for the course in the pop music industry, but still…)

    • OzzieScribbler

      Exactly what I intended to write.
      Though Justin is just too young to play a Twilight character. How many high-school aged characters played by someone less than 23 years old do we actually see in TV andmovies?

      So, the pop music industry is filled with sparkling vampires? Now that scares me.

    Does anyone else care about how “Tim” seems to have missplaced a few appendages?

    • Lanwin

      For what I see, it seems more like he’s missing some appendages, or atleast they’re kind of invisble…

    A rather uncanny resemblance to Wayne.

    His neck looks too long and thin. Kinda scary…

    I have this feeling that Frank would be a great partner with GlaDOS.

      GLaDOS*

      All hail grammar nazi!

        I never get her name right. Never.

          I can forgive you for that.. Not so sure GLaDOS would though..

    Today’s lesson…
    When Frank says “Hold this” always use the tongs.

    • RBZ

      The tong-holding tongs, that is.

        That’s how cautious one needs to be when holding ANYTHING! of Franks

    Tim looks normal to m- OH GOD WHERE ARE HIS ARMS

    • Ourorboros

      Yet he isn’t angry with Frank in the first panel.

      • Chase
        Chase

        Well, he’s careful not to snap at Frank. I bet that’s how he lost his arms.

        • someboddy
          someboddy

          He lost one arm in a lab accident. *Then* he snapped at Frank…

      My mind added those <..>

    Assisting with research and Research Assistant is a much more important distinction than I previously thought. Now I’m scared to go to that job tomorrow…

    I feel bad that I didn’t notice Tim was missing his arms until the last panel.

    • Bill Murphy

      I didn’t notice until reading your comment.
      Casualty of being my first comic this morning before having coffee.
      Plus, I’m hungover! ;)

    Does anyone else view this page on a smartphone? I keep getting popup ads that redirect me to a “win an iPhone 5″ pages before the comic has loaded. Makes it near impossible to read this site on Android phone. Galaxy s2 if it makes a difference.

    Is it.. Is it..BAD that i thought this fellow seemed perfectly normal the first three or four times I looked at him?

    • Sigs

      I read the comic twice before I realized the dude was missing arms.

    the guy loses his arms because of frank and yet he greets him properly…
    strange.

    Frank remind me of GLaDOS from Portal. Because of the science. And the killing. That monster.

    Frank must be losing his edge. I mean, he was involved in his “research”, but Frank left him alive?

    My name is Tim and I have the same hair color…
    Creepy…

      BUT do you have arms, or did you type that with your nose?

    I swear to god I didn’t realize he had no arms until the last panel.
