I'm Sorry Dave, I can't do that.

From the hit 1968 movie 2001: A Space Odyssey

I love the movie, its one of my favorites.

It's not as elaborate as some of my other strips and I still havent decided whether to make a large cell available for this one or not... it took me a long time to come up with the punchline for this one... im still not sure about it but its the best of the bunch that i came up with... I usually go ahead and draw out the strip then add dialogue later... I usually have a general idea of where i want to go though.

anyways, enjoy!

According to one article in a book I have on 2001, the whole trip was symbolic of conception.

From Bowman's trip across the cosmos to the creation of the StarChild in the bed.

The last was blatantly -an embryo or fetus !

I'd hate to see what HAL would do if they placed him on the Satellite of Love... o_o;

Maybe Hall would be happy if they promised to design another ship that looked like a giant vagina?

I've never seen any of those, but I hear the 1979 Star Trek movie has something pretty close.
