    I wonder if were about to see a new leaf in Stanley's leadership, or if he's about to become more annoying then ever and screw everything up for the battle.

    Is that twoll brain damaged? I'm starting to wonder if something is up with him lately.

    I know twolls aren't generally bright sure but... wow. Just wow. He's being a retard.

    I have to wonder if the theme for the upcoming battle is going to be a comedy of errors. I get the feeling Stanley's about to step all over his own side's plans in his buffoonish way, while Tramennis tragically does the same to his father's.

    Wonder if this is good or bad character development for our dear Tool. x) His promoting Zhopa seemed at least a little well-meant...

    Let's see if he boops things up. I think the damage here is limited by Maggie's diminishing juice, though- unless rulers can issue orders long-distance without Thinkagrams? My mind's blanking here.

    Mind you, Stanley is kinda justified in asking what the boop is going on here.

    Zhopa is smarter than he behaves.

    Either that, or he just made himself an open-face sandwich, har-har.

    I see no good reason why it can't be both.

    I'm inclined to agree that Zhopa is probably smarter than he acts, though we have some evidence to show that Twolls in general are dumb as a post and that Bogroll was a pretty exceptional example. (Him being brainy for a twoll might account for him getting picked on by the other minions, too)

    I get this as Stanley deciding "I'll find you a Duty you'll hate" and Zhopa quietly agreeing with him. Instead of facepalm, we get facebread.

    On the other hand, it's possible Zhopa IS that dumb.

    I hope it isn't. It'll be a lot more interesting to see them both succeed, rather than them both fail. Specifically, Parson better get through that gate to fight and win the battle, and Tramennis better become heir before his father dies.

    Well, Stanley DID say "Break" when the Twoll had the bread in his hands. Maybe the Twoll interpreted that as an order to him as well?

    I have a theory about Duty and Loyalty affecting the actions and attitudes of lower level units, but I can't really put it into coherent words at 2330. Stanley is pretty aimless right now. Zhopa's Duty and Loyalty right now is focused on Stanley. Maggie, Jack and Co have Duty to the side, but Loyalty mostly to Parson. And Parson has a very clear purpose. So they have a very clear purpose. All the Decrypted are Loyal to Wanda, and she has a very clear purpose as well. Perhaps because Stanley is aimless, that aimlessness is reflected on those units loyal to Stanley.

    Just a theory. Feedback welcome.

    Rob, has anyone told you that you are an evil, EEEEEVIL master of suspense?

    I think Zhopa is going to follow in Blogroll's shoes of being very well intentioned, and actually moderately competent. And I was going to push back against Kaed on Zhopa's intelligence, until I realized I was ninjaed by Lonk the Sane.

    To expand on what others have said, I think the reason for Zhopa's behavior is that all he wants is to be left alone to do his job, but all day long he has been pestered with questions by his ruler, a guy who can disband him at will. Earlier, he feared that he might be punished or disbanded just for inadvertently offending Stanley by making the chair either too tall or not tall enough. And now, he is expected to constantly follow said ruler around and be subjected to such questions all the time! It's like Keef from Futurama on the first day he got promoted to being Zapp Brannigan's second-in-command, except that (a) Zhopa doesn't have Keef's wit and intellect to deal with the constant barrage of stupid and (b) Zapp doesn't have the authority to summarily execute Keef for any imagined offense.

    I'm fairly confident that Zhopa broke the bread because he heard Stanley yell out "BREAK".

    I read it as Zhopa does not want his new promotion. Stanley has a reputation for being bad at employee relations.

    I took it as Stanley trying to find something that would please Zhopa, which failed because nobody likes Stanley.
