Previously unable to hold down a regular job for more than three hours, Chris Romberger of Philadelphia is now not only able to multitask at his cafeteria job - he has also developed a custom vending machine to sell comics, after his love of Spider-Man and lack of capital to open up a full-on shop led him to this creative solution.

Wanna bet most of the customers will be female, delighted that they no longer have to deal with male-gaze condescension from your average Jeffrey Albertson? To make the experience complete, Romberger should really have added a voice chip laden with sarcastic insults. According to the video below he is a bit of a jokester, after all.
