Valentine’s Day might not be here yet, but that doesn’t mean that Cobra Commander isn’t in the mood for love. He’s back on Chat Roulette with an open heart and a box of chocolates, just looking for the kind of companionship that Destro and the Baroness have. He also has a ouija board with which he tries to contact Patrick Swayze, but that’s kind of beside the point. Thanks to my pal Skeletor for the tip, and for more Cobra Commander shenanigans, make sure to check out Cobra Takeover.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
