    Ha, as if we’d ever know this much about the drone program!

    ahhahahahha, I really enjoyed it! thanks Ruben! :-)

    Awwww! I love the mini-panels with Drone seated in the classroom and then having his coffee at work! I hope Drone becomes a recurring TTDB character and/or plush toy!

    I always thought those Predator drones were a little too soft and fuzzy. A few years at law school should fix that. Of course there’s a chance they’ll start chasing ambulances.

  5. Andy Simmons says:

    Decimate?  Really?  So, it would take like ten of these drones to actually eliminate a target completely?  That doesn’t seem very efficient.

    • Kimmo says:

      Common usage has it as more like 90% than 10%; misconception has spawned yet another definition.

      Also, full marks for this one Ruben, text notwithstanding.

    • Ipo says:

      The Theban Legian supposedly was decimated until there weren’t ten left.  The word decimation is frequently used as a synonym for the word “annihilate” which the OED lists as meaning “to reduce to non-existence, blot out of existence” .

    Why does the drone get an office with a window?

  7. Deidzoeb says:

    Tom Tomorrow is slightly ahead of the game. He already has drones teaching constitutional law, and retconned one of them as Obama’s mentor.

    10 Internets for the first to identify the city in the last panel!
