Placing Blame

Webcomic Storyline: 

Kernel Panic, by Christopher B. Wright

Comic Transcript: 

ALAN: You created a VIRUS and sent it out from a public library???

JACK: NO, man. I don't do that kind of stuff. I created an uninstall routine for that stupid paperclip.

JACK: The PAPERCLIP created the virus, man. It kept changing my code to take advantage of security holes and exploits. And then it hijacked the mail program and sent it out on to an unsuspecting world.

ALAN: The paperclip did it.

JACK: Yes!

ALAN: And I suppose the paperclip was told to do it by a talking dog?

JACK: I wouldn't be surprised.
