: Hey, why not Gadget? ``
: She's already under Gadgeteer Genius
: Ahhhhhhhh. I dunno, I think she's one of the few to count as both; just look at that outfit!
: I agree with Uun, so I'm going to put her in, referencing that she's also a Gadgeteer Genius
(later) Uun, I know we don't worry about sources around here, but I'm wondering where the source for her last name came from. I wasn't aware she had one, and I saw every episode when I was a kid.
: Her father was explicitly named in the show as Geegaw Hackwrench, so everyone logically assumes her last name is Hackwrench, too. It's been sighted on a number of semi-definitive sources (such as the description of the recent DVD box set), so it seems to be official.
: Man, I need to get my hands on that set. I loved that show. Too bad I forgot her father had a name...
Violet: I removed the Lady Hetrodyne. Girl Genius sparks are so far into gageteer genius I can't see how they got listed here.
: Victoria Pendleton is a cyclist and ergo a sexually objectified athlete. Not an example of this trope.
: "There's something even better than a hot girl: a hot girl all covered in dust and sweat, climbing down a ladder, asking for an RJ-45 plug and some UTP CAT-6 cable." Kudos for that line, because I can't help but sniggering at the idea that someone would come down a ladder in dust and sweat asking for that... Where are
the ethernet outlets in that place?
: The attic?

: Why is ◊
: Because I thought it was a different image and jumped to conclusions. Removed. Sorry about that.
Skarmory The PG
: Any... chance... of seeing that image? <.<;
: Might this image
be a better Wrench Wench
: I nominate any of these images
. Wrenchiest Wrench Wench
: Hello, this is Just for Fun
: What do you call a Wrench Wench
: Gadget is simply not
a good demonstration of this trope. It doesn't matter how popular a character is, the defining characteristic of a Wrench Wench
is that she is sexy
. I'm sorry to say, but only a small number of people have furries as a sexual fetish. For the majority, that image is actively misleading. If you don't like using the Ensemble Darkhorse
of the oldest webcomic still running, then the image suggested by Malimar
above is fine, as well. But the image has to be fairly universally regarded as sexy. Not universally recognizable and not
