You'll need to read the book to understand the humor since it's a Running Joke throughout the novel. Aside from the usual adventures, Arthur spends a large part of the novel trying to get the machine to make a proper cup of tea.
By the way, it just occurred to me that most of you're adventure time comics are based from a lot of books. I have to know how many books do you read and piqued your interest in the first place and what book inspired you to make your comics?
I'm lucky that back in Grade School we had a library with a lot of good books. I was going through the young adult section, occasionally with the children's books because they have such nice art. I also loved going through the encyclopedia before wikipedia arrived. I grew older and I was reading books books from different genres and classifications, like philosophy, art, literature, poetry, foreign books, history, psychology, science, etc. I don't finish reading the whole book, but some parts that are interesting. Same with comics. There is no definitive point I was inspired and started enjoying comics but "After Eden" by Arnold Arre and "Lost At Sea" by Bryan Lee O'Malley are powerful influences.
We're at an advantage because the internet affords us to learn about lots of different stuff. The best way to write about life is to live it. Enrich it with experiences and you'll be able to fill in the paper pretty easy.
You're amazing man, to be honest I usually don't have much patience with books but I really appreciate for others who are, just like you. Although I do understand your interests of reading powerful books, in fact, I read some interesting novels and literature that piqued my interest, especially that rocks my very core. Truth be told, back when I was 10 I read one of the best and probably the scariest literature of all time and it was, no joke, "Dante's Inferno" and I finished the whole damn thing the in a week and I never slept peacefully for a while back then. Still like you said, literature like those gives a powerful influence and I completely agree with that, but to me it depends on what kind of books that interests me.
One more thing is "After Eden" and "Lost at Sea" really good? I've heard those books for a while but never had the chance to read them.
And I agree with you on how the internet enrich our lives, thanks to it, I have broaden most of my stories and it helped me on how to make an impact on people's lives. Also it's good to know that there are people like you who have broad uses of the internet.
You're too kind dude I read other books too, not just the powerful ones. For example, I read children's books that have great art. Those books are not always powerful, but the art and simple narrative can inspire.
You read Dante's Inferno while 10? I'm impressed!! I mean, I started reading it only in Grade 6, and I found the writing difficult to understand. I had to resort to reading the summaries. Did you manage to read Purgatorio and Paradiso too? Maybe that last book will help you to sleep
After Eden is a local graphic novel by Arnold Arre He's the same dude who wrote "Mythology Class". Lost at Sea is one of the earlier works of Bryan Lee O'Malley, the same dude who created "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World".
I have many more influences, but these stand out for me at this time
Looking back, around the time I read those I wasn't really into fiction, being more of a non-fiction 'spending ALL MY MINUTES researching what I'm obsessed with and also fanfiction' dude but then one of my teachers gave me a Hitchhiker's Guide omnibus to read and I was like HOOKED
It references the book "Hitchiker's guide to the galaxy", regarding a machine that analyzes a person's taste buds to determine what they would like to eat/ drink, but somehow never quite getting the flavor right.

I had to think a bit about Lady's comment before I realized how fitting it was. PB was so proud of her gadgets in this episode, but in the end, it was simply her strenght and determination that saved the day.
Yeap, she actually lost all her stuff before facing Ricardio I'm quite happy I found that quote wondering about, it worked perfectly and I discovered the running joke of Arthur trying to get the machine to work
A majority of my audience probably won't get the joke, but I'm glad to have been of service
xD YES. Very satirical comic based on the works of a very satirical writer. I haven't actually read through any of Adams's books but from what I've seen he's very Pratchett-like. Maybe the inspiration for Pratchett himself.
Y'know what, I noticed that a lot of weird writers/performers come from your country: Monty Python, Ricky Gervais, Douglas Adams, Tolkien, Lewis, Pratchett. Is there something in the water by any chance that creates these great people?
