This was one of those comics that I might have thought it was funny at the time, but I don't anymore. I suppose that can happen with anything you write.

The problem is that, looking back, it doesn't make any sense to call Proto Man a smelly goon, considering how Proto Man's personality developed over the course of the comic. Of course, at this point, everything was up for grabs, so there was no way to necessarily know that this line wouldn't make sense later.

As for the joke itself, it's supposed to be an allusion to the gag in Star Wars where Leia calls Han a "half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf-herder", and Han only reacts to the "scruffy-looking" part. Here, Proto Man is only taking offense to the smelly part. Still lame.
