Pesky Gremlins Comic 666 – Horns of a Dilemma

Horns of a Dilemma

Elmo is truly caught between the horns of a dilemma whose horns are named Siri and Alexa.

…and with that, we will leave Elmo, Siri, and Alexa to try and sort things out.  That little storyline was designed to introduce the on-going rivalry between Siri and Alexa and bring some new technology for the gremlins to “work” with.  As originally written, I was going to “kill off” (well, Factory Reset)  Lucas’ creations right about now, but it was suggested to me that I should keep both of them around and have their ongoing rivalry show up from time to time.  So, Siri and her emoji face and Alexa with her with her electronic mood ring have been granted a reprieve and will be appearing again in the not so distant future.

However, the next strip will be appearing in the month of October and you-know-who will be back.  So, today’s web page bonus image is this:

Slim He's Coming

This image is from back in 2017 and was used on Twitter and Facebook to try and generate some interest in the coming Halloween story.  As far as I can tell, it didn’t work but it does kind of work now.

  1. I think there may be a lot of one-upmanship in the future. And the new technology should provide a lot of fodder for the Gremlins.

    I wonder if skeletons have skeletons in their closets?

    1. That is how I see the Siri – Alexa rivalry, too. Kind of like a Lifetime Network movie.

      I already have some one-offs for the new technology, but will have to wait to work them in. Slim has the month of October already scheduled.

      Once Slim, the world’s most famous plastic glow-in-the-dark skeleton gets here, we can ask him that question.

  2. Siri, play nice calming music!

    1. Siri responded by playing “Dust in the Wind” by Kansas while glaring at Alexa. I don’t think this is a good sign.

  3. Great idea, man! This rivalry can be used for so many surprising plot twists!

    Skelly-man’s coming!

    1. Yes, a strong willed Siri and Alexa open all sorts of opportunities. I feel sorry for Elmo already.

      Yes, Slim will be making his first appearance this year in the next strip and he has another silly Halloween story.
