an RR Anderson + H-Labs + Feed Tacoma Exclusive!
Welcome to Uncle RR's HTML FUN CORNER! Today we're conducting an online experiment. We've stolen the concept of 'MS Paint Adventure' and adapted it to feed tacoma in a hyper-local context.
Take control of all your favorite characters.
To execute a character's command just type a comment: RG (for rusty george) followed by a colon (:) and then a command like you'd type in if you were playing SPACE QUEST III, KINGS QUEST or POLICE QUEST... pretty much any vintage SIERRA ONLINE game.
RG: Take Gum.
RG: Attack Tacoma Dome.
any how you get the idea. I will draw the next round and compile the story based off the comment commands. Lets start with the ORIGIN STORY!
All events and persons herein are completely fiction. Any resemblance to actual people, places, or events is purely coincidental. This is a work of the author's imagination.
*** Rusty George Creative ***
Choose Your Own M$ Paint Adventure�
It is the year 1913. A mysterious Iron Works has constructed you, The Rusty George, a tremendous battle-mech for one purpose: Destroy the Kaiser!
Unfortunately you never reach Germany. Your container vessel sinks in commencement bay. You slumber beneath the salty waves for 95 years
A Series of Mysterious Seismic Undersea Activities washes you, The Rusty George ashore. The year is 2008.
The wooden safety catches holding your internal clockwerks stationary for the trip to Germany have long since rotted away. You feel a few lumps of coal slide down your internal hopper... in a few moments your steam plant will be fully activated. An Strange Woman approaches.
Rusty George (RG): Examine Strange Woman
The Strange Woman has a kindly face. She stares terribly deep into your hulking iron visage. You get the feeling she knows how wonderful your mechanical abilities are. She identifies herself as DE MEYERS.
What do you do now? Choose Your Own Adventure!

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
