    Summary

    With a put-upon sigh, Cliffjumper split and retracted his outer and inner chest plates, revealing a torso full of complex mechanisms. Most of what was visible was covered in tough cushioning cable, but Kim identified the brachial actuators from Ratchet’s lectures. And the secondary sensor router. And nests of fans and radiator plates that made up his primary coolant system. Then she noticed the smell. It was not exactly unpleasant—earthy and damp, a little like mildew and a little like swamp. It was a weird smell to come from a mech. Abruptly, June leaned out and down, one hand reaching out to point at the inner surface of Cliffjumper’s armor. “Ratchet, what is that?”

Why was a particularly bad joke by Bulkhead derided as ::Undercharged when there were actual glyphs for Not funny and Humor fail? How did any of that work?
