An Answer

So, I know many of you have been losing a lot of sleep over Tuesday's riddle...
"What has two horns, a wooden leg, and a super-cooled nuclear core?"

And while you probably figured out the answer on your own, I'm going to give it to you again here:

ROBOT GOAT PIRATES!

Now, for further clarification, some images for your perusal.


[Fig. 1] Regular Goat Pirates (notice the conspicuous lack of cool android limbs)


[Fig. 2] This is an example of a pretty standard Robot Goat Pirate:


[Fig. 3] Dada as a Robot Goat Pirate. (Left image, according to Sawyer's imagination; right image, according to my own estimations)


[Fig. 4] Assorted other Robot Goat Pirates. (Seriously, I couldn't stop drawing these for an entire week.)


For Further Study: I'm pretty sure that THIS and THIS are both results of the same idea-generation process that produced Robot Goat Pirates.

LMBO
Really, you make me laugh, not chuckle or chortle or even giggle, it's a full blown laugh. Your wit is astounding, compounded with artistic talent, it makes for a wicked combo.

I like having you around for that reason alone. Thanks, man. :D

Most awesome, old friend.

P.S. I recently read your Wikipedia entry and was most fascinated. I had no idea you were so old. Also, I did not know how to take your status as Whitebread Prize judge... oh, wait, that's Whitbread. My mistake.
