  1. That almost looks like a printing error, the signature, date and boilerplate repeated as well as the art.

    With robots, I might have expected him to eat a dessert containing the PDA called a “Blackberry” – but this one doesn’t tell me anything.

  2. This would have been funnier if the date incremented.

  3. My best guess is that robots think linearly so would never vary what the “want” (could they even have wants?). Didn’t inspire even a hint of a chuckle. Hopefully there’s something more to it and somebody will see it and enlighten us all.

  4. I actually found this quite funny, but then again I find humor in mindless repitition, i.e. Sideshow Bob stepping on rakes. One robot has been programmed to be a short order cook, and the other has been programmed to be a diner patron. They just “robotically” go through the same routine every day. There could be just the hint of a social comment in here, too, about how we humans fall into a robotic daily pattern. I know people who order the same thing for lunch every day, just because it’s familiar and they know exactly what it’ll cost.

  5. I’m sure the ordering robot wants a dish that somehow involves RIM Blackberry cell phone/PDA devices and the classic rock group Cream, though I have no clue as to how the short order cook robot is going to combine those two things. It must be tasty though, if it keeps the other robot coming back.

  6. I think the robot is stuck in a loop.

  7. I think the comments are stuck in a loop.
