Merry Christmas to All, to All a Good Four-Day Holiday Break


Sorry, folks, but I’m done for the day and for the weekend. Topless Robot will resume posting on December 28th, Tuesday morning (if I weren’t going to be in a car for 10 hours on Monday, I’d post then, but oh well). Don’t forget, the TR Art Contest is going on until Tuesday as well, so you have time after Christmas to draw/paint/photograph whatever (it’s worth noting that I’ve gotten three pictures of penises and zero photos of sexy TR readers, which… which I probably should’ve expected, frankly).

To every one who celebrates Christmas, merry Christmas; to everyone who celebrates a different holiday, happy holidays; to everyone who celebrates nothing, enjoy a long weekend of terrible television, avoiding the malls, and hard drinking. I’ll see you kids on Tuesday.

About Author

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.
