I like the strip, but I thought the final frame, though funny, could have been less cliche. As we've all seen, in movies when a computer gets stuck in an infinite loopback (or similar) condition, it tends to blow up, melt down, or fail catastrophically in some other fashion.
As those of us in the real world know, runaway or loopback conditions aren't nearly so dramatic, though they can be as devastating.
As I read the final frame, an alternate ending occured to me. Instead of the robot burning up, he could freeze, head cocked to the side and start saying continuously, "Stack Overflow, Reboot required."
And the girl (whose name I can't remember) could say, "Yeah, the economy's like that too."
Just a thought.
Love the strip,
