Bow Before Your Robotic Masters, Wretched Human

Andro Unit is going to f'in kill you.

Sorry about all the whining, whinging, bitching, and felching* (ha ha...just kidding) lately. I'm giving my loyal readership of 5 a no-more-whining guarantee for at least the next month.

So, anyway, why do you think robots are so much better than people? And who invented the ninjas vs. robots vs. pirates thing that swept the nation a few years ago?

It's peculiar how pop culture kind of channels and collects like that; my friends and I were totally talking about ninjas and robots and pirates as good and desirable things back around '99/2000, then all of a sudden they were everywhere. The thing is, I'm not claiming "I was into ninjas before you" (although I was...I was obsessing about ninjas before Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles popularized them back in 1987 [w/ the cartoon - the original comic was published in '84.]) What I'm saying is that many, many good-looking kids from all across the nation decided that ninjas, robots, and pirates were good, fun things all at the same time, somehow. It's kind of like how we all realized that synth-pop sounds fucking great at around the same time, maybe in 2001 or 2002.

Anyway, the point is, I have a ninja tattoo on my bicep and I can't wait until the robots take over. We've had about 10,000 years of "civilization" and I think we've conclusively forfeited our sovereignty rights at this point.

* Tweak, the next time you drop a really egregious pun, I'm going to tell you what felching is as punishment.

I totally can't wait for the robots to take over. Based on Battlestar Galactica (the new, less cheesy one), they'll be hot and into fundamentalist religion. This is the only way we can tell the current administration are not robots: so not hot.

felching is nothing compared to munging!

Yes, only hot robots will take over. That's one of the reasons we'll all be ok with it.

And hey! I had forgotten about munging! Thanks, HC!

now i need to look up munging, since i've known about felching for too long. It was the name of my bowling team when I was in high school.

Is that a threat, or a promise?

Threat. Totally a threat.
