The Happy Happy Face of Unspeakable Evil

Just showed my wife Katsuhiro Otomo's opening sequence to the movie Robot Carnival and, not necessarily because she is a liberal of the most bleeding heart type, she was of course thoroughly appalled. I tried explaining that it was the tragic irony of the piece that rendered it so hysterically funny. She however remained impervious to my most convincing arguments. This led to a discussion of prettily-named weapons—specifically Fatman and Little Boy—and we smoked cigarettes while I argued the absolute necessity that these weapons, once conceived, had to be used…and by that time we were well away from the subject that began the discussion.
