The Gutless Wonder
This, too, was the title of a book by Trout, The Gutless Wonder. It was about a robot who had bad breath, who became popular after his halitosis was cured. But what made the story remarkable, since it was written in 1932, was that it predicted the widespread use of burning jellied gasoline on human beings.

It was dropped on them from airplanes. Robots did the dropping. They had no conscience, and no circuits which would allow them to imagine what was happening to the people on the ground.

Trout's leading robot looked like a human being, and could talk and dance and so on, and go out with girls. And nobody held it against him that he dropped jellied gasoline on people. But they found his halitosis unforgivable. And then he cleared that up, and he was welcomed to the human race.

If naming the voice on tv commercials were an Olympic event, I would be America's sweetheart, because I would bring home so many medals.

Paul Ryan distributes copies of his most recent line drawings, of which he is very proud.

It is no secret around here that Eric "The Perk" Perkins is contractually obligated to be potted up on the weed while he reads the sports for KARE-11 news.  For that, we salute you, The Perk.
