Here's an interesting optical illusion. Some people will look at it and see a young woman. Others will see an old lady.

Here's the art for the Sneeze Theme Song. Apparently it is also an interesting optical illusion...

Some people look at it and see an innocent cheerleader pyramid with a robot on top who is too heavy for the girls underneath him. Other people see a robot doing some uncheerleader-like things to his friend on the left.

I really don't believe S. Britt intended to draw it that way, but maybe he did it subconsciously. Maybe it was his way of reminding us that if beauty is in the eye of the beholder then so, too, is a metallic claw in some chick's no-no spot.

I'll double check with him. Until then, I felt it only right to provide some names for the the robot in the dirty version:
- Rub-bot
- The Vagitator 3000
- Robo-It-Doesn't-Matter-If-You're-16-I'm-Made-of-Metal-Tron-Bot

Did you think the drawing was meant to be sexual? The comment board is open closed.

anyone else think the blonde cheerleader has a look of jealousy and rejection on her face?

Also, I see a hidden arrow like in the fedex logo. Here's a hint: It's green.

I knew a guy in school art class who worked really hard making fancy letters for a Festival of Spring poster. He made such beautiful, detailed letters I was impressed. But he got so wrapped up in his little leaves & vines he never noticed that he had written "Festival of Sping". He got a C. Perhaps this artist was so involved in drawing rivets or something that the naughty nature of the overall drawing slipped past. Could happen!

Gives new meaning to the term digit-ized.

Posted by: Ila at January 9, 2008 5:11 AM

PMSL. Who's mind was in the gutter and suggested it first?

I can't look at it now without being really jealous of the dark-haired one. Especially because she seems to be shivering with pleasure. ;-)

Posted by: Kumbulu at January 9, 2008 5:19 AM

I agree with sal, the blonde looks angry at being left out. And it's the brunette's lip-biting that really makes it look dirty.

Posted by: Arkonbey at January 9, 2008 5:30 AM

PimpBot rocks the house. I used to think it was just a fun robot drawing with cheerleaders celebrating the theme song. Now I'm having Britt come to my apartment and paint this as a mural on my wall ten feet high. For what it's worth, I think the one on the left looks more stoic than anything else.

And, having known a few cheerleaders in my past, I don't think you would be fully wrong to describe those actions as "cheerleader-like."

Posted by: McCrum at January 9, 2008 5:33 AM

That robot is definitely violating the cheerleader on the left, and the cheerleader on the right is jealous.

... and I'm slightly aroused.

Posted by: Admiral_John at January 9, 2008 5:38 AM

I didn't see it the first time I viewed the post, but when I came back to check for updates later I did a double take and now the dirtiness is all I can see. The fact that the robot is dressed like a cheerleader just adds to the filth.

The hilarious, hilarious filth.

Posted by: John at January 9, 2008 5:49 AM

Someone should tell the robot that women don't need prostate exams.

Posted by: Dick_Pounding at January 9, 2008 5:50 AM

As soon as i saw it I said to myself, "Get you some, robot doggy dogg."

Posted by: mez at January 9, 2008 5:54 AM

I thought that the 'bot was gittin' some the first time I saw the picture but chastised myself for being filthy minded. BUT now I know I am a normal robot-gettin-freaky minded man like so many others.

Posted by: The Red Shadow at January 9, 2008 5:54 AM

I just finished watching 'Notes on a Scandal', so basically if you swap Dame Judi with a robot (assuming this has not already taken place), the story's the same...

Posted by: strongbadia7 at January 9, 2008 6:00 AM

I actually debated this for a while when I first saw it....If it is sexual, the blonde chick sure is mad she isn't gettin any claw!

Posted by: Bleach at January 9, 2008 6:03 AM

Dude, there are some sick, dirty-minded mo-fo's up in here! (And I'm SO glad I'm not the only one!!!)

Posted by: Jen in CT at January 9, 2008 6:08 AM

Number 5 alive!!!

Posted by: travis at January 9, 2008 6:11 AM

I'll bet the robot is using the "shocker"...

Posted by: B at January 9, 2008 6:15 AM

Sad to say that I thought the same sordid things.

Posted by: Susan at January 9, 2008 6:22 AM

Ha ha ha. I was just showing the theme song post to my wife last night and she did a double take when she saw the picture. I told her that the robot was the top of the pyramid and he was too heavy for the cheerleaders. I insisted that it was an innocent drawing.

The first time I saw it, however, I thought they were all involved in a boinkfest.

Posted by: pells at January 9, 2008 6:24 AM

Yay! I'm just glad I'm able to post a comment! Just wanted to say I love your blog Steve! I stumbled on it using StumbleUpon and have not been able to stop reading your posts. I laughed so hard I cried reading Steve, Don't Eat It! and your son's reaction to the raisins, priceless! I've e-mailed the link to your blog to everyone I know to enjoy. Keep it up and I look forward to reading more!

PS. The robot picture is so dirty..

Posted by: Red at January 9, 2008 6:32 AM

Yup, I totally thought there was some robot/human nastiness going down when I first saw that pic.

For the record, I see a young woman in the top pic. Just in case you were wondering.

Posted by: Hootie at January 9, 2008 6:32 AM

The old lady/young lady pic reminds me of "How To Draw A Face." Is it an eye? No, it's an ear! Oh my god!

Posted by: Steve at January 9, 2008 6:37 AM

I'm pretty sure they already had a robot with the appropriate name on Futurama.

"I apologize for nothing!"

Posted by: Craig at January 9, 2008 6:41 AM

Aww...no code in the comments? That appropriate name was supposed to link to:

Posted by: Craig at January 9, 2008 6:42 AM

Within seconds of my first viewing, I saw both versions -- the sacred and the profane. But I didn't see the FedEx green penis-indicator until it was, um, pointed out. Really, this sick piece of commie-inspired porn doesn't belong on a family-friendly site like The Sneeze.

Just kidding. I love it. More, please.

And tell blondie there, on the right, to relax and wait her turn. Robots can keep it up forever. She'll get hers. Oh, boy, will she get hers!

Oh, and this robot's name? Shocker, of course.

GOO! I didn't notice that at first!

Posted by: eviltwin at January 9, 2008 6:56 AM

No doubt the robot is a dirty diggler. The face of the 'cheerleader' on the right is very complex. It's a mix of both shame and reproach. Perhaps she prematurely halted the robot's advances only to be ashamed to realize what she truly wants, and what her suburban protestant upbringing disallows, is freaky robot action. The 'cheeleader' on the left is actually trembling and sweating, but the robot is clearly not being supported on the pyramid, he's too low. The only possible culprit is roborgasm.

Posted by: joe at January 9, 2008 7:03 AM

Until this recent post, I didn't notice. But now that you mention it, that's all I see. I have to admit, it made me laugh. How about "Pederast 5000"?

Posted by: Brad at January 9, 2008 7:08 AM

Ok, I wanted to get a second opinion on this, so I sent the link to my wife and asked her what she saw, and she came up with yet another version of what's going on:

"I see three cheerleaders. The one on the left is crapping her pants (or skirt), the one on the right is mad because she smells it, and the one in the back is a freaky robot kneeling on the ground."

Posted by: Craig at January 9, 2008 7:29 AM

I went to vote, but the kittens were funnier than you so I voted for them.

Just kidding. How could I not vote for you?

Posted by: tazmo at January 9, 2008 7:40 AM

Here's a name "Robot that had a better high school experience than me, fucking bastard 5000"

Posted by: Kyle at January 9, 2008 7:43 AM

I don't see pleasure on her face... It looks as though the robo-rapist has a firm grip on her stink star....

Posted by: Jeff at January 9, 2008 7:44 AM

Ive been staring at it for 5 mintues and I still cant see the old lady in that pic

Posted by: Chris at January 9, 2008 7:50 AM

It's a big profile of the old lady's face. The young woman's chin, is the old lady's big nose. The young woman's ear is the old lady's eye. The ribbon around the young lady's neck is the old lady's mouth.

Posted by: Steve at January 9, 2008 7:56 AM

So do robots have phalluses on their kneecaps? That's what it looks like to me...

That's terrifying if true. What happens when they run? Or do the Soulja Boy dance? Collateral damage penetrations?

Posted by: Jeff at January 9, 2008 8:04 AM

Help! I've been staring at the lady picture for a half hour now and I don't see the old woman. I think I'm going to rip all my hair out for being such a slow kid.

Posted by: Leah at January 9, 2008 8:12 AM

"This is the Sneeze.

Give the fleshbot a hanky.

Posted by: ThomasH at January 9, 2008 8:12 AM

the first thought i had when looking at this picture was that the robot was "goosing" the girl on the left, and that the girl on the right was irritated by this! it took me a while to then see the pyramid.

Posted by: casey at January 9, 2008 8:17 AM

Voted! As for the robot, I hope he's doing what it looks like he's doing because I approve of dirty robots.

Posted by: will at January 9, 2008 8:21 AM

Oh it's dirty! Rock On!

Posted by: Betsy at January 9, 2008 8:29 AM

Here's another version of it. Maybe you can see the old lady in this one:

Posted by: Steve at January 9, 2008 8:29 AM

I vote for Kyle's name for the robot. Definitely hits home for me.

Posted by: Larry at January 9, 2008 8:33 AM

When I saw this picture all I could think was, "dirty, dirty!" She's quivering and about to go over the edge while the blond is just waiting for the robot nastyness!

I'm also going to add:

HANDROID to the list.

The more important question is, why the hell is Waiter Rant beating The Sneeze? It's not even funny at all.

2. She CLEARLY loving it.

When I first put it in the sidebar we were losing 75% to 2%. I'm just happy to see we could make up some ground.

Posted by: Steve at January 9, 2008 8:42 AM

I just assumed we were suppose to see the girl on the left getting happily "clawed" and the girl on the right totally bummed - either jealous or disgusted. I can't imagine that wasn't the artist intention. Or are a few of us just total perverts?

Posted by: Lori at January 9, 2008 8:43 AM

Baha, I'm sorry to say that the first thing that sprung to my mind when I saw that pic was something along the lines of 'robot sex..'

I dont know if it was intended or not, but the fact that one of the robots arms is down behind the cheerleader and the other isnt didnt help :P

Posted by: Tori at January 9, 2008 8:51 AM

That's too funny. That's exactly what I thought when I first saw it. Meh, my mind's always in the gutter any how though.

Posted by: jay at January 9, 2008 9:04 AM

On your unrelated note comment. I assumed you wanted us to click on the ad, and your ad seems to be a dynamic one. When I looked, the ad was for a Anal Douche, which was gross, especially when it is below your heading of "treat yourself" That ad, coupled with this post subject matter makes for a distrubing day.....

Posted by: Kathy at January 9, 2008 9:16 AM

I thought about emailing you about it, but I figured I was a freak for seeing what I saw. It totally looks like the blond one is jealous for not getting some of what the robot is giving to the brunette with his unseen hand.

Posted by: Stacy at January 9, 2008 9:21 AM

I don't see what the big fuss is all about. Women work the magic of mechanical machines/battery powered goodness every day. This ain't nothin' I haven't seen before. That reminds me, I need to go....

Posted by: Diva Taunia at January 9, 2008 9:22 AM

Oh, but I'm glad it's not the BLONDE girl getting it. Blondes do not always have more fun!

Where do I sent the money? I want that on a fucking t-shirt!

Posted by: Andrew Riley at January 9, 2008 9:25 AM

I totally thought the Robot was UP to something...

But after my foray into your father's artwork - SPELLING FU - was spiked back at me, I felt loathe to set myself up again.

Posted by: chris at January 9, 2008 9:31 AM

I just realized... we all assume the robot is male...

Posted by: chris at January 9, 2008 9:33 AM

Is IS a little suspicious that only the cheerleader on the left looks...shaky.

Posted by: Merry at January 9, 2008 9:41 AM

I saw it as dirty right off the bat. I was playing RAISINS for my young son and had to quickly scroll past the cheerleader pic to avoid answering the question of "what are they doing?" Meanwhile, now my son wants to make a RAISINS/PICKLES song. Life is good.

Posted by: Dr. Squid at January 9, 2008 9:43 AM

Chris makes a great point. The robot is wearing a cheerleader skirt. Lezbot 3000 rotating fist of pleasurrrre...ATTACK!!!

Posted by: Shanon at January 9, 2008 9:47 AM

I think it is the robot's body language that clinches the dirtiness for me, he is half shrugging it off like "yeah, you know you'd hit it too" and that smug smile on his face, yeah, he is totally her B.O.B. (battery operated boyfriend.)

Posted by: Spazzmanda at January 9, 2008 9:51 AM

I didn't notice it at first, but now it looks like the one on the right is upset he took the claw away, and besides, it really doesn't look like they're doing a pyramid anyway. It's way more "Danger Will Robinson" from behind. And hey, I would think the one on the left would have a lot easier time holding him up, than the skinny-ass one on the right.

Posted by: Luke at January 9, 2008 9:55 AM

I can vouch for the robot being male. Originally he had on a wig and looked too much like a girl so I asked Britt to take it off.

Posted by: Steve at January 9, 2008 9:57 AM

I saw it as filthy the first time I laid eyes on it... again and again and again. Fun picture! I have no window in the mind of S. Britt, but... it's really tough for me to see it any other way.

Incidentally, I've always referred to that digital maneuver as the "Live Long and Prosper," but robots are eternal and certainly not Vulcan.

Posted by: cholly at January 9, 2008 9:59 AM

i'm happy to admit that for once i didn't assume the dirty. but now i must admit that the dirty is much more amusing than the clean. i'm pretty sure this robot was the proto-type to jude law's character in speilberg's way-too-long movie: AI.

Posted by: mgm at January 9, 2008 10:00 AM

That is one jacked up old lady. I definitely saw the young lady first.

To Ben, #2 Commenter: I saw the hidden green arrow too. Make of that what you will.

Posted by: Darcy at January 9, 2008 10:02 AM

yes intentional. And not only is the one on the left having a good time, the one on the right looks like she feels left out. Poor girl.

Posted by: Matt at January 9, 2008 10:03 AM

The one on the left does look like she's feeling pretty good while the one on the right looks pissed. Intentional or not, its damn funny.

Posted by: baketown at January 9, 2008 10:25 AM

LOL That is so sexual, words cannot even begin to describe. I give props to Ben (2nd Comment) for noticing the little arrow.

I think the angle of the robot is all off and that's what's giving it the sexual imagery, instead of what may have been intended.

But if this is all supposed to be subconscious, your friend really has a way of putting it out there ; )

Posted by: PinkNBlack21 at January 9, 2008 10:29 AM

Well, honestly, judging by the length of his visible robo-arm, I don't think Rub-bot could reach that far down...unless he had an extender attachment...

Posted by: Me-ah at January 9, 2008 10:34 AM

I did not notice the sexual nature of the picture until it was pointed out to me by someone else. Now it's all I see. Thanks a lot, someone else!! >:o(

Posted by: zannebee at January 9, 2008 10:36 AM

In the first picture, I can actually see two young women and one old one...

Posted by: Cheeseboro at January 9, 2008 10:52 AM

I'm going with a giant "yes" on the metal man pincering both of that happy cheerleader's no-no spots. The look of stifled enjoyment on her face says much, and the look of envy on the blonde's face tells us all the rest of the story.

Posted by: EarthmanXoshaRosp at January 9, 2008 10:53 AM

I'm like 99% sure she's taking a dumb in his pincer. Which is totally reasonable and not at all creepy. I mean come on, we've all taken a dump into a robot's hand. Am I right?

Posted by: Dekx at January 9, 2008 10:59 AM

And here I was just mesmerized by the green arrow between his legs. Robot dong thisaway, it seemed to say to me.

Now I know why.

Posted by: Mir at January 9, 2008 11:18 AM

The only possible interpretation of the picture is that the robot is pleasuring the dark-haired cheerleader and making the blond one jealous.


Posted by: Shenlong at January 9, 2008 11:30 AM

The cartoonist is clearly accomplished and talented enough to leave no ambiguity in facial expressions and details, right down to the proper number of rivets on the chestplate of the Diddletron 6900 there. Therefore, the sexual tone is intentional. The bot is clearly going for the old "1 in the pink and 1 in the stink." ...As Number 5 from Short Circuit would say, "More input!"

Posted by: Matt at January 9, 2008 11:31 AM

So if the robot is male why does he have on a skirt? Male cheerleaders wear pants. Maybe the robot is gettin' kinky with the skirt on and the claw of pleasure? Definately 'Orgasmatron'.

Posted by: vickster at January 9, 2008 11:34 AM

I don't thing it was meant to sexual, but now that it's been pointed out --- how awesome is that!

Posted by: token at January 9, 2008 11:35 AM

Absolutely, especially with that arrow thing between his legs. He's definitely doin' something to the cheerleader.

Posted by: The Other Leanne at January 9, 2008 11:37 AM

Dirty, dirty, dirty. Absolutely loved this picture from the moment it was posted. Intentional naughtiness or not, this is pure brilliance.

Posted by: Niki at January 9, 2008 11:42 AM

The blond isn't showing jealousy or rejection at all. The robot removed his device for a moment to wave to the camera. She's looking back to see why the hell he stopped.

Time for a little robot-strength donkey punching.

Posted by: Barf at January 9, 2008 11:44 AM

Being a man I can say:

Of course it's sexual! It was drawn by a guy! DUH!

Thanks for keeping your minds in the gutter guys.

Posted by: Justin at January 9, 2008 11:52 AM

It's clearly filth.
Anyone claiming otherwise is to be looked at sideways.
Sideways, I tells ye.

Posted by: Jimbooooo! at January 9, 2008 12:05 PM

It's clear the robot has a penchant for particular body types, as well.

Posted by: Jon at January 9, 2008 12:09 PM

It looks to me like the Vagitator 3000 likes his women a little on the chunky side.

Posted by: SloppyJoe at January 9, 2008 12:36 PM

maybe it wasnt meant to be at first.. but then after a bit, i imagine it was. i mean, left hand side girl is sweating and looking quite orgasmic (well, ugly girl orgasm), and the girl on the right is OBVIOUSLY jealous that she's not getting hooked in her poonani.

Posted by: samm at January 9, 2008 12:42 PM

well the expression on the girls face is quite telling, also dont worry steve we'll help you beat that stupid waiter and his stupid rants!

Posted by: mike at January 9, 2008 12:45 PM

It gives me untold pride to know that I'm amongst this many fellow pervs.

Posted by: Nic at January 9, 2008 12:46 PM

The blond is so much hotter, what in the hell is the robot doing messing with the ugly chic?

Posted by: Greg at January 9, 2008 12:50 PM

I saw the innocent one first, and much like Cheeseboro I can also see two young ladies and one old.
The second young lady looks somewhat anime, seems to be a halfway point between the two.

Posted by: Capn Steve at January 9, 2008 12:51 PM

robots must be attracted to the unattractive.

Posted by: samm at January 9, 2008 12:52 PM

From the moment I saw it I thought it was sexual. Of course, I am a pig.

Posted by: Strode at January 9, 2008 12:54 PM

It's the smile on the girl's face that makes it dirty; if my back were being crushed under 400+ lbs. of steel, I certainly wouldn't be smiling. Also, if the robot were a half-inch higher on the drawing, there would have been no complaints (or more complaints, if you're into cyberphilia).

I'm surprised nobody has posted a link to this, considering the obvious relevance:


Posted by: Rob Menke at January 9, 2008 12:57 PM

Thought it was dirty from the start. All I can say is, where do I get the shirt? Simply awesome!

Posted by: Mancho at January 9, 2008 1:01 PM

it never crossed my mind until you brought it up. seeing it through tainted eyes, it does appear to be sexual in nature. is that bad?

i see that "waiter rant" is neck and neck with the sneeze. i used to read that blog a long time ago (before i even KNEW there was "the sneeze"). i voted for you of course. you can pay me later when you are rich and famous. i'll be like that kid from "better off dead", "i want my 2 dollars"...


Posted by: piglet at January 9, 2008 1:10 PM

dirty dirty robot.
he doesn't even look like he's kneeling on the girls, rather behind them to give him easier access into her spanky pants.

Posted by: sammi at January 9, 2008 1:15 PM

When I first saw this I honestly thought the darker, heavy set girl was taking a dump. She has the wavey lines around her indicating movement... I assumed bowel movement which proves that my thoughts are even LOWER than most. Really she does look just like Stimpy used to when Goerge Liquor was about to beat him and he lost all bowel control.

But then I thought "Hey that just doesn't make sense and why would the girl on the right be so obviously jealous? Can it be that she's constipated and maybe those bundles on either side are some kind of fiber? No way! It must be sexual... Hey! look at where the robot's hands are... HEY! She's VIBRATING!
HEY! She's looking like she's REALLY enjoying something!... HEY the other girl IS jealous... HEY the other girl is jealous 'cuz he's doing her first! HEY he's giving the Okie Dokie sign like "I'm taking care of business, she's almost done now. Gee I like being a robot"!!

(Those things on either side must be HEY stacks.)

This is sexual. If the artist denies it or doesn't come up with SOMETHING, I want to subject them to my own polygraph test with an electric chair.

BTW, I just noticed that the robot is wearing a skirt... it's getting kinkier.

Posted by: Fluff at January 9, 2008 1:15 PM

I did think there was a little something going on in this picture for a few reasons:

1) the chick on the left is VERY happy, and has sweat marks (like Cathy?)
2) the chick on the right is unhappy and has no sweat marks
3) only one of the robots hands is visible, and the one we can't see is right behind the happy cheerleader.

I figured it was probable not intentional, but it's good to know I'm not the only one with a dirty mind.

Posted by: Mae at January 9, 2008 1:19 PM

I say nay. This is a drawing from MTV's hit new teenage soap opera "Moroni's Harem" depicting the danger of STD's of those unfaithful in the Mormon community.

Both cheerleaders are among a group of seven that have the same boyfriend. The blond just was told that she has a terminal case of anal herpes. The brunette just was told that she is STD free, but needs to lay off the black bean soup.

That silly robot is so smart.

Sorry Steve but you can't compete with that kind of genius.

Posted by: will at January 9, 2008 1:44 PM

Well not only do I think he's "doing some uncheerleader-like things to his friend on the left" he's also giving the audience a clue, his other "claw-hand" is giving the audience the "Cod*" The shape of one's hand when grabbing ones cock to shake it!

**In our circle of friends one hold up this hand shape to randomly cod those who accidentally look at it. Its the equivalent of seeing the others cock!

Posted by: Sabrina at January 9, 2008 1:54 PM

anyone who thinks that the drawing was meant to be sexual definitely has some sexual issues they need to work out.


Posted by: k8 at January 9, 2008 2:13 PM

Don’t let Mr. Britt’s schoolboy charm and apple polisher smile sway you; I know for a fact he was wearing a PVC tea cozy while drawing this affront to good taste and normal biological groping.

Posted by: tink at January 9, 2008 2:58 PM

I saw it as naughty robot-on-cheerleader from the start! I didn't realise he was meant to be doing a pyramid thingy.

Posted by: rossee at January 9, 2008 3:11 PM

Nah...I don't think that it was meant to be sexual at all. As I always say, today's youth's minds are always in the gutter.

Posted by: Ari at January 9, 2008 3:35 PM

WOW someone mentioned the green arrow in one of the earliest posts...its pointing to the robot's crotch! Maybe it is just seeing what its like to have one

Posted by: dlaw at January 9, 2008 3:37 PM

Actually, I figured the girl on the left was a masochist... because I am one and I tend to see those tendencies in others.

Apparently, that includes cartoons.

However, the hand in the no-no spot didn't even occur to me. I was too busy focusing on the thought of a heavy, metallic, painful object on my back... and uh, never mind. :)

I did find it suspicious that the scrawny blond effortlessly held the robot up, but the sturdier-looking brunette is sweating and shaking from the strain of the robot, but my mind didn't go there. Now it appears to be the only logical explanation.
For once the blond cheerleader isn't portrayed as the slut.

Posted by: Maggie at January 9, 2008 3:43 PM

After A while I became perplexed by the left girl's strange expression so I devised this scenario:

The desperate/unpopular girl has a crush on the robot (I would assume liking "the school robot" would be social suicide in a High School) and is too nervous to hold up the (somewhat heavy) automaton. The girl on the right is annoyed to be cheering with a crowd as unpopular as these two. Especially the new guy with the dopey look on his face.

Scenario 2: They unite to form Sex Voltron

Totally sexual. Blondie is jealous.
In other news, it took me at least 1 minute to be able to find the old lady. Me like 'em young.

Posted by: daisy at January 9, 2008 4:00 PM

I used to work with an artist and after a while I starting noticing penises in everything he drew. I looked at old drawings and found penises there, too. But when I pointed it out to him, he was shocked to see he'd been doing it - he had no idea. So, maybe "S. Britt" really didn't THINK about it . . .

Either way, great way to point it out with your post. As always - very funny. :)

Posted by: Margie at January 9, 2008 4:16 PM

1. I read post and so was influenced... but now I see the dirty version all the time.

2. I see the young woman and the old lady.

3. I am so tired of hearing how terrible it is to work as a waiter... so I'd never vote for Waiter Rant. I voted for you!

4. Open comments more often! I love this site!

Posted by: Bolie Williams IV at January 9, 2008 4:58 PM

I'm thinking it was meant to be, based on the look on the blonde's face. And even the look on the brunette's face looks a little different than just someone holding up the weight of a robot (whatever that look is).

Posted by: jafer at January 9, 2008 5:07 PM

I bet that the robot's hands are much like swiss army knives with an exciting array of "tools". He he.

Posted by: Lisa at January 9, 2008 5:08 PM

The blond is mad because she only got tea bagged and did not get such a nice facial as the brunette. That is not sweat nor highlights in the brunettes hair.

The more people point out that the cheerleader on the right is jealous, the more I wonder. But the robot does seem to be smiling, despite being a robot.

Posted by: SiaZ at January 9, 2008 5:32 PM

well, I got that the robot was on top of the two girls in a pyramid-like thing, but I can see how you would look at it otherwise. I mean, the girl of the left looks like she's having a pretty sensual time, sweating and such. And the girl on the right looks pissed 'cause she's not getting any. But you know. Just my take on things.

Posted by: Kiarra at January 9, 2008 5:33 PM

All those other blogs are lame. I totally voted for the Sneeze!

And yeah, when I saw the pic I thought, "Hey, wow, that blonde cheerleader is totally jealous of that brunette that is getting some hot robot action," and here's what's really depraved...after that I made a mental shrug, like that was totally normal. LOL

Posted by: Steph in CT at January 9, 2008 5:46 PM

Posted by: Dorsa at January 9, 2008 7:31 PM

I think what added to the dirtiness for me is that there was an ad for an anal douche right next to the picture...

Posted by: Carl at January 9, 2008 8:01 PM

Yep, my first thought was dirty; probably took about 5 mississippi's to get the pyramid thing. The mixed message is all in the brunette's, ahem, facial expression. And why is the blonde not "shivering"? I think the brunette looks sturdier, but maybe all this actually says more about me than the artist. Oh well, I The Sneeze

Posted by: perv_I_guess at January 9, 2008 8:13 PM

There is NO way, that the artist didn't see that! It doesn't look ANYTHING like a pyramid! The bot is clearly behind them, not above them like he should be if it were a "pyramid"!

I'll bet he started off thinking it would look different than it turned out, but consciously did not throw it away and start over again to correct it to look more like a pyramid... oh, btw, I just spanked it.

Posted by: washboard flabs at January 9, 2008 8:14 PM

I totally thought it was innocent at first but now I can't get the robot-lovin out of my head. But... the important question is- where are the donuts?

Oh, lordy. I only saw the robot-claw-in-naughty-parts version, and didn't even for a second think it was meant to depict anything else.

Until I just now read Steve's blog entry about it.

My mind is so deep in the gutter it's practically melted into the asphalt, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. But I'm still a tad embarrassed...

Posted by: the swede at January 9, 2008 8:53 PM

I'll put it this way: It was a lot easier finding the old lady in the first picture than it was finding the "pyramid" in the second one. God I love this site. Thanks Steve!

Posted by: joe at January 9, 2008 9:11 PM

Yeah, that's pretty much the first thing that popped into my head. That and a blond angry and the most inappropriate and unprofessional behavior. Or just jealous of that little whore.

Posted by: hardware annie at January 9, 2008 9:27 PM

Hell yes, it's intentionally dirty. When I was a fresh, young thing at my LA area university, my art class took a tour of Disney studios animation dept. Pictures of a "shell-less" Ariel, Belle with her ballgown flipped up, Dopey doing truly nasty things to Sneezey (maybe sleepy, I dunno), all pinned up on the walls! We used to slow-mo The Little Mermaid video tape to see the priest getting a stiffie. Oh and the dandelion puffs spell out SEX in the Lion King. Animators are a perverse breed, my friends.

Posted by: jennielynn at January 9, 2008 9:33 PM

After reading the comments, I'd like to point out a few of my reactions. I'll leave it as granted that this is clearly a sexual piece of art.

1) First of all, I'm always impressed with the variety of euphemisms used to refer to sexual organs. I just have to giggle while I read all of the comments. Btw, I'd like to toss the term "Cooter Clamp" out there for your enjoyment.

2) As far as the hidden arrows go, it appears that other people saw the arrow as pointing upwards into the robo-taint. When I first read the arrow comment, I could only see an arrow pointing downward formed by the two cheerleaders' skirts. Just another two-way image hidden here.

3) As for one of the earliest comments, stating that a Futurama character would be appropriate; the first robot name that came to mind was obviously "Bender", which seemed extremely appropriate since the robot is clearly bending a couple of "her"s.

4) Finally, continuing on the 'female robot' comments. Perhaps it's just my repressed childhood fantasies, but the robot looks an awful lot like "Rosie" from the Jetsons. Sexual connotations of her name aside, there are many physical similarities:
-The first is clearly the skirt. A dead giveaway.
-Clamps: Simple. Multifunctional. Intrusive.
-Ear Appendages. Wifi transmitters?
-Round Eyes, Square Mouth.

Anyone agree or am I way off base?

By the way (yes, I can type it all out), love the site Steve. I'm a proud member of the Tree Brains (Vocals/Guitar/Pots and Pans) and have been blessed to see Cloud Cult both in Philly and Minneapolis. Keep it up.

HI smilies/smiley.gif I am writing to ask for your help to join private testing on a new social networking website called VOOEASY.com. The site just released its private beta version for limited testing on January 1. We need some early users to join and help make this site better, together.

VooEasy is an innovative social network site which is very different to Facebook and MySpace. It allows people to “speak up” as *TEAMS* rather than individuals. For instance, I am Asian American, and a full-time software engineer. I am also a member of a community baseball team Richmond Colts, as well as a singer in the local choir. I can choose to speak up as myself, or “on behalf of” Richmond Colts, or a member of the choir. I can created teams for each of these life circles (and spent some time to design cool team “VooCards” for each team) and invite my people to join the respective teams. The teams don’t need to be big. For example, I have a brother and a sister at home, and so I also created a team called “the Chang brother and sisters”.

VooEasy’s headline is “show all the colors in your life.”. All of these are totally separate circles of friends. VooEasy will be the first place to integrate them all into ONE. Try it! You’ll be surprised how much fun it gets.

For now, VooEasy will only provide a total of 5 (five) beta test accounts for readers of this cute things forum. Please follow the following URL to receive the testing beta code to try this site.


If you are early enough to be one of the early users, don’t waste it. You can actually “spawn” out other invitation letter. There will be no limit on the number of invitations you can send. So, please be generous. You can send out invitation emails to friends and family, and everyone can start playing on VooEasy!

Thanks for taking time to read this message. We really appreciate your help.

Posted by: Mary the Avenger at January 10, 2008 12:04 AM

YES! I finally am here for a comment board!

I'm going to say that he didn't see this as sexual at first, because despite the sexual tones that are so obvious, it's clear that the robot (male crossdresser or cheerleading female robot?) is indeed off the ground from shadow placement, which would render the claw-to-naughty-spottery virtually impossible (though robots are amazing creatures...). However, that's a weird face to make for "That's too much weight" while the other girl looks merely irritated.

All of this aside, this all points to one thing, regardless of real message intended.

Robot on Girl action is hot.

Posted by: Chance at January 10, 2008 4:33 AM

Definitely looks sexual. The one on the left looks like she's quite enjoying herself, and the blonde looks pissed that she's not getting any. Poor blonde :P

Posted by: Josh at January 10, 2008 4:53 AM

The little Mexican girl is getting her business diddled. That is definitely sexual.

Posted by: Christopha! at January 10, 2008 5:12 AM

I was trying to keep it clean, but every time I looked at the face of the blonde girl and saw that expression of jealously, I knew that robo-claw was somewhere it shouldn't be on her chubby friend there...


Posted by: Zombiephile at January 10, 2008 5:19 AM

The twiggy blonde is angry, 'cause by Cheerleader Gen. Law 4.8A, she's guaranteed a non-crushed role in the pyramid. In heinous violation of the ordinance, she's being stomped by a hulking piece of metal, who looks fat anyway and only made it to the team 'cause S. Britt is his daddy.

I don't know what the shivery chunk chick is worried about. Maybe Beggin strips withdrawal?

Anyway, the offending bot has broken only a cheerleading law, and not one of sexual nature. He position makes this clear. He's kneeling on their backs (and not even resting his robo-butt on his robo-heels), so he'd have to be leaning far backward or tilting downward the shoulder of his more mysterious arm.

Go ahead, try to kneel and reach the floor a half-foot behind your knee to diddle some invisible cheerleader. Do you look perfectly erect? ... I mean, does your upper body, look, straight... Stop laughing!

It's an insult to S. Britt to say he couldn't execute accurate b0t-on-tw0t perspective.

Wow I'm glad I'm not the only one who saw the picture and immediately thought: "that robot is SO giving a little somethin'-somethin' to the cheerleader on the left!"

I didn't, however, even entertain the thought that she was receiving a little robotic claw shocker action.

Steve, you are a dirty boy. You need punishment. :)

2)definite overwhelming pleasure on the left

4)definite hidden green crotch arrow

Here's my big revelation/theory:
the robot is a lesbian!!! Yes. Its a female lesbian robot. She is wearing a cheerleader uniform with a skirt AND she is sporting the classic female symbol right on the top of her head!

Posted by: palad at January 10, 2008 7:32 AM

That robot is totally claw-banging the brunette. It's what I thought the second I saw it and now I'm even more convinced it was on purpose. Is the robot a female?

Posted by: Surly at January 10, 2008 7:41 AM

Posted by: Simply C at January 10, 2008 8:14 AM

Jason - IT'S NOT A FEMALE ROBOT. I like lesbians, too, but I promise it's a MALE ROBOT. In the original sketch which you have not seen, the intentionally male robot had on a wig, but I thought it made him look too much like a girl so I asked Britt to remove it.

Posted by: Steve at January 10, 2008 8:28 AM

By the way, does the title of this article "Robo-shocker" imply that the robot is giving the girl "The Shocker"? or was that an "accident" too. ;-)

Posted by: Matt at January 10, 2008 8:31 AM

I intentionally called it that because of the "shocking" controversy and that he might also have one in the stink. :)

Posted by: Steve at January 10, 2008 8:58 AM

I think it was intended to be dirty. The thicker cheerleader should have no problem holding up the weight of a robot. The blond one is sad that she is not involved. If it was an "honest to goodness" pyramid wouldn't the hands be on the cheerleaders shoulders? Also notice the shape of the robot's hand that is showing. Perfectly shaped to get both the "shocker" and the G-spot. Also the green two wayed arrow represents levels of satisfaction the arrow head in the give direction is much larger that the receive direction. That loving giving lesbian robot knows just the right way to do it!

Posted by: Sethonious at January 10, 2008 9:37 AM

"doing some uncheerleader-like things to his friend on the left."

If the robot is a "he", why is "he" wearing a skirt? And what's with the subliminal upward pointing arrow between "his" legs?

Posted by: Zclone at January 10, 2008 9:59 AM

He's just wearing the skirt to be an asshole.

Posted by: Steve at January 10, 2008 10:04 AM

I am NOT jealous of brown-haired cheerleader. Because!
If the picture is innocent: She's insanely uncomfortable with that GIANT ROBOT on her back...
If the picture is dirty: She has COLD METAL ROBOT FINGERS in her vagoo.

Anyone WITH a vagoo knows that cold metal + vagina = NOT PLEASANT

So I have no idea if the picture is sexual or not.
And that's my two cents. ^w^

Posted by: Sam at January 10, 2008 10:33 AM

When I first saw this, it looked a bit 'naughty'.

The cheerleader is enjoying it in a 'bite my lip' sort of way, with a jealous blonde, and now the subliminal arrows! (thanks sal)

I think the robot needs to stand on the backs, with BOTH pincers visible at all times! (Obviously we can't trust him) -=OR=- just change the site content to match all the innuendo's.

Posted by: Joshua at January 10, 2008 10:58 AM

I definitely saw it as dirty on the first glance and wondered if I'd seen too much porn in my time. Freud said that sometimes a cigar is just a cigar but let me tell you, a fembot is never just a fembot.

In the words of Austin Powers, "yeAh baby, YEAH!"

Posted by: Marc at January 10, 2008 11:26 AM

I think it wasn't conciously meant to be sexual, but it was the artist's unconscious mind that leaked out.

Posted by: Sally at January 10, 2008 12:37 PM

It's Not Really Dirty! Honest.

She's not shaking from what the robot is doing! Think of the site your on! She's holding back a... SNEEZE!

Because if she sneezed the pyramid would collapse and a 400lb robot would fall on top of her.

Oh and as everyone knows the best way to keep from sneezing is to have a robotic joy manipulator twirling in your privates. Works everytime. Okay it's a little dirty.

Posted by: Alan at January 10, 2008 12:39 PM

The blonde isn't jealous, just impatient. Only one of his hands is equipped with "super-fun vibrating mode".

I knew something oh so dirty was happening the first time I saw it (or at least hoped it was).

Posted by: REGGIE at January 10, 2008 1:17 PM

Maybe the claw isn't doing the job. It is a robot- perhaps it comes with extra attachments! Maybe that is why blondie is jealous!

Posted by: emby at January 10, 2008 3:14 PM

I TOTALLY assumed that Robo was finger-banging her, and that Pom-Pom on the right was pissed off because she wasn't receiving the same treatment.

Is there something wrong with me?

Posted by: HeyJoe at January 10, 2008 3:15 PM

The "pyramid" interpretation is a stretch, since the position of the robot's knees appears to be below the level of the cheerleaders' rumps, and that is not how a cheerleader pyramid works. Also if the robot were the top of a pyramid, both of its arms would be raised in triumph; it's right claw would not be mysteriously concealed. The robot is clearly knealing down BEHIND the cheerleaders, and diddling the brunette.

Posted by: redtreerunner at January 10, 2008 3:36 PM

Yeah, my impressions jibe with redtreerunner's. That robot is *not* kneeling on their backs! Hadn't really noticed the dubiously positioned claw before, but I definitely did notice that the chubby cheerleader was have some kind of pain-pleasure episode.

Posted by: ju ju at January 10, 2008 3:53 PM

no question what so ever. there's a totally INTENTIONAL non-explicit porn scene going on here....

Posted by: Mark at January 10, 2008 4:38 PM

I confess I did think it was a dirty shot. Then I realized she was positioned die-rectly in front of the robot so I changed my mind.

Now I realize, hey it's a robot! They can build all sorts of robot parts. Wherever they want to.

So I'm back to thinking it's a dirty picture.

Posted by: Lotta at January 10, 2008 5:55 PM

OK, so I had to look up "shocker" at Urban Dictionary.

If we are to assume the the robot's unseen hand/claw is the same configuration as the visible one (fair assumption as the rest of it is symmetric), I don't think it could be performing the "shocker", as this move, by definition (and evidenced by all the "two in the --, one in the --" euphemisms) requires three digits. He/she/it is more likely performing the "six pack", hell it looks like its claw was designed soley for this purpose.

Also, I agree with the earlier post, I don't thick the blonde is jealous, I think shes pissed that the robot stopped doing its thing to mug for the camera.

Posted by: Quantum at January 10, 2008 6:55 PM

I honestly thought the robot was doing "something" ;) .. to the cheerleader on the left soon as I saw the pic .. then thought "Good Lord ... I REALLY need to get .. um ... you know ;) .. if I'm seein' *that* in a robot pic " O_O LOLOL

Posted by: Sherry at January 10, 2008 7:17 PM

Posted by: J at January 10, 2008 7:20 PM

I even thought that the blonde was looking jealously up at him for not getting the same treatment.

Not to stir the pot there Steve but you insisting that the rubbutt is female would be like the artist insisting he/she didn't mean the picture to be dirty.

Eye of the beholder and all that.

Intentional or not it sure has amused a whole lot of us. Heterodroid or Lezbot, what does it matter?

The robot is clearly male, and also obviously a latent homosexual, not that I have a problem with that, in fact many of my close friends are animated gay robots

Posted by: Quantum at January 10, 2008 8:19 PM

It's sexual, no doubt about it And the robot has a BBW attraction. Kink.

Yep, I saw a dirty robot who likes his ladies like he likes his coffee, thick and dark. And I saw a pissed-off blond who was wondering why she wasn't getting to play the part of the hand-puppet.

I was wondering why such filth was gracing the clean pages of the sneeze, as it was obviously intentional. Actually, I laughed my ass off when I saw it, and I was sending virtual high-fives your way for posting it up. Good stuff, I say!

Posted by: jarrod at January 11, 2008 2:18 AM

There's definately something fishy going on there. The robot must be pretty good too, hy else would her eye's be crossed? Plus you can totally tell the blonde's pissed off becuase the robot picked the ethnic chic.

Posted by: Wendy at January 11, 2008 5:59 AM

I bet he's after her prescription medications for fuel. I hope she has Old Glory Robot Insurance, cause when they grab you with those metal claws you can't break free because they're metal and robots are strong.

I didn't see it originally; but once it's pointed out it turns into a dirty, dirty picture. It's brilliant, really - you've detonated a Freudian timebomb!

Awesome blog, by the way. Found it on stumbleupon and I've been hooked ever since. You even convinced me to try out Cloud Cult. I'm really liking 'The Meaning of Eight'...

Count me firmly in the "dirty" camp; but I like that one could conceivably explain all the dirtyness away, or use this image as a Rorschach test for dirty minds. Oh, and what tipped me off was the shape of the visible claw: a g-spot vibrator (google at you own risk) if I ever saw one... ;)

After Meaning of 8, give Happy Hippo a spin.

Speaking of people seeing things that may or may not be there, I'm really curious about some of the Amazon ads that pop up. Today, they're trying to sell me $1195 of Elk Carcass, and last week it was Enema Bulbs.
What keywords is amazon seeing on the sneeze to make it think of Elk and Enemas?

Something fishy, eh? Ooooof.

Kudos again Steve, I've become hooked on the Sneeze and on Cloud Cult... I've been collecting everything of theirs I can get my hands on. The theme song is just amazing.

Theres another band I've been liking a lot lately - they put me in a similar mood - The Polyphonic Spree. :thumbsup!

The robot is clearly not on top of the cheerleaders, he is behind them. His "knees" are on the ground, not on the cheerleaders' backs. The cheerleader receiving manual robot stimulation wears a shit eating grin, and the cheerleader who receives no robot love looks irritated, maybe even jealous. I feel like I'm explaining to someone that the pink banana on the Velvet Underground album cover is phallic. No one honestly produces an image like this unaware of the suggestive content, unless they have a lesion on the part of their brain that processes information related to sexual acts between robots and cheerleaders.

Methinks that robot's got a claw in our little lady's netherregions.

Posted by: sdaj at January 11, 2008 3:39 PM

it's only fair to name the other two girls. i say the dark haired one is martha and the blonde be jessica

Posted by: shiv at January 11, 2008 5:04 PM

if you see the brunette as shivering with pleasure from the robot's manipulations -- are you a pessimist or an optimist? also? it's kind of a false dilemma. the robot is heavy and is crushing the blonde (and brunette) below. AND the brunette is getting metal pleasure. there's no either/or. maybe. when's the report back from the artist gettin' posted?

I agree with Jason:
"the robot is a lesbian!!! Yes. Its a female lesbian robot. She is wearing a cheerleader uniform with a skirt AND she is sporting the classic female symbol right on the top of her head!"
Also - she is definitely "binding" things on the top. Some women use Ace bandages, some duck tape. But Fembot uses heavy, riveted metal.

Oh yes - dirty! Love it! Tree brain is a dirty mind!

Well, the sweat/white liquid coming out of the shaking cheerleader on the left doesn't really help S Brit's case. I'm also amused by the blonde's look of jealousy, and the smug face of the robot reminds me of Otto the blow-up autopilot from the movie Airplane. Also, someone spotted the green arrow pointing between our metal friend's legs. And yeah, I thought of it as a little dirty when I first saw it. I knew it couldn't possibly be meant to seem that way, but that's how I saw it. It confused me. Guess I (and several other people) just have a dirty mind.

Studbot is obviously providing some sort of manual adjustment to that cheerleader on the left... He really knows his way around a gearbox...

Posted by: Toronto's Steve at January 11, 2008 10:25 PM

The thing that sort of destroys the dirtiness is the physics of they left cheerleader's skirt.

If the robot is doing dirty things to her, why is her skirt not riding up in the back? You can clearly see, under her right arm, that her skirt isn't pulled up at all.

So it's entirely possible that the robot is actually a mind-manipulator, and is causing the girl to THINK she's having dirty things done to her.

And the blonde is either fully aware of the robot's dastardly plan, or is, as everyone else has stated, just jealous jailbait.

oh geez, I thought the album art was a bit odd, but I didn't think of the sexual nature till now. The original problem I had was that though martha is obviously having trouble holding up the robot, the much thinner and such likely weaker, jessica is only annoyed. It made me think why would the right side of the robot be so much more heavy.

but now.. oh no, I feel so dirty...

Posted by: Phase88 at January 12, 2008 7:07 AM

I believe the cheerleader's cheer routine was a modernized version of the Legend of Hans Brinker and the robot was just putting his claw in the dyke to stop the flood.

Posted by: Monkey Rash at January 12, 2008 9:32 AM

As an artist who has been accused of putting dirty images in to otherwise clean works, I believe S. Britt didn't do it on purpose. Just because somebody 'sees' porn does not mean porn is present. Unless you're coming to my birthday party, in which case porn is always a present.

Posted by: Spike at January 12, 2008 9:36 AM

Hehe, I see the pervertedness. I also really like that it isn't the skinnier blonde cheerleader ain't gettin' it ;P Us big gals need Handroid luvin too xD

Posted by: Oley at January 12, 2008 12:21 PM

Most optical illusions like the old/young lady above I can eventually see both ways. Not bang bot. I didn't see any dirtiness at first, now that it's been pointed out I can't see anything but filth. And I love it! I can't see any semblance of a pyramid at all any more.

Posted by: Jackster at January 12, 2008 1:24 PM

When I first saw the drawing I thought I had an unusually dirty mind, but apparently my mind is no dirtier than the minds of Sneeze fans everywhere.

Gidget and Blondie just don't look like that robot is too heavy for them. If they were sweating and trembling and struggling, I could conclude that two-ton robots just don't belong on the top of a pyramid. I could even buy it if they were sweating and struggling but still had fake smiles pasted on their faces. But Blondie is not struggling, and Gidget, biting her lip and letting her eyes unfocus, looks like she's enjoying a private moment. You think this will make Gidget more popular with the football team?

Now there's a slogan for you: The Sneeze: More fun than illicit robot love!
