lead bot :: Keith

Peter was thrilled to be playing lead robot in the school play, and secretly hoped Lucy Johnson would notice the robot suit’s telescoping arms, which, he would tell her, were his own idea.

Breasts Will Be Optional :: Imaginary Keith

Humans will never build perfect robots because of our own pre-programmed flaw, that one inapplicable question we can’t help but always ask - man or woman?

    TAGS:  robots, breasts, gender

As the afternoon wore on, Henry became more and more convinced that everyone else in the office had been replaced with a robot—and not even the good kind of robots, the ones that boost productivity and enjoy doing repetitive tasks: no, these robots were lazier than Henry’s human coworkers had been.

showing them all :: steve

When the robots come and I’m the only one in town with a spray bottle of rust-inducing salt water holstered at his hip, well, mister, you won’t be laughing so hard then.

Career :: Keith

“Forget that robot nonsense,” Steve’s father said to his son, “because the real money’s gonna be in bag salad, life’s best pre-packaged convenience; that’s what the people want and that’s what they’ll pay for, not for some fool robot idea.”

Robot Sex :: Keith

flockit :: steve

I take back what I said about my neighbor’s taste in music, because it’s 10am on Easter morning and he’s blasting Herbie Hancock’s “Rockit”* from every window of his house, and I can’t help picturing a certain messianic fellow emerging from his cave to that fine robotic beat (or, perhaps, rockin’ inside it with robots while followers await him outside).* Follow that link for bonus John Denver footage!

Some called it humorous, others just plain ironic, that it was human error that had led to the diode mixup at the robot army assembly plant, a small error that went largely unnoticed until it came time for the robots to march in unison, which it turns out, they couldn’t, and which, some said, embarrassed the robots, which of course, in hindsight, now seems ridiculous, because of course the robots weren’t actually capable of experiencing this particular sensation, although as it also turns out, they had been properly assembled and programmed for anger, frustration, and hostile take over, which wasn’t quite as humorous once the war started, but did, at least, allow the overthrow of humans to be quick and cost-effective.

At least I had sense enough to stop discussing the case after my son suggested that maybe a robot had committed the murder.

Sir, with the robots on strike, I’m afraid we have no alternative other than to ask the gentlemen—oh, God forbid it has come to this!—yes, we must ask the gentlemen to go to work.

Conveyor Justice :: Keith

I was fifteen days into the trip before I realized Topeka was populated entirely by robots, but even then it took me another three days to notice these were new robots, and not the ones I’d met back in 2136.

“It’s not the fact we aren’t allowed to wear clothing that makes me unhappy,” said Randall the Robot to the bartender, “it’s just that I’ve always had a penchant for collecting underpants and there really isn’t any point.”

Robots were today awarded complete and total autonomy after winning their long, drawn out 23 year old case, which had claimed that the angry and disgruntled human factory workers who had assembled them back in 2033 had violated their right to peaceful assembly.

Attorneys for Automaton International, the robot watchdog group known for its aggressive defense of robot rights, today filed a suit in federal court demanding that restaurants nationwide stop advertising the sale of “soft serve” ice cream, stating that the word serve is nothing more than a derivative of the word servo, which in the original human language of Latin, meant ‘servus’ or ‘slave,’ and that continued use of such language is not only offensive and denigrating to robots, but a clear violoation of the Autonomy Decision of 2056.

Robot Circus :: Keith

I never cared much for the robot circus—the deafening clank of the elephants, the never-changing audio of the lion’s roar, the dim glow of the clown’s lightbulb nose—although I did kind of enjoy the intricacy of the trapeze girl’s metalwork.

Robotard :: Br. Ezra

Robby was a charming little robot – little propeller beanie and cute little claw like hands groping clumsily everything it touched – but, his lack of mechanical dexterity rendered him unreliable as a museum guard.
