No… I’ve looked on the interwebs, and there’s at least one other incident of observation.

But that’s not going to stop me from opining myself, as I came upon the connection [albeit a ‘tetch late] independently.

ZP imp– 2007
Google android– 2008
Hmmm…

really? The similarities are there. Call it tribute, rip-oof [sic], ‘nod to’… what you will. But the ZP imp preceded the android by a year, and if you saw the characters by silhouette, you’d be hard pressed to see a difference (well… I would– but then, I’ve been drinking).
So– my beef is with the folks that made the comments in the ‘linked above‘. What the fuck are you looking at [or not looking at] that you’re not seeing the… oh– I get it. You’re posting for Google.
Never mind.
