R2D2 Jr.: Problem Patient

Written 11 July, 2009

R2D2 Jr.: Problem Patient

Witness the pathetic instance of robot sanitorium patient R2D2 Jr. His problem: alcohol-- or, rater, lightweight machine oil, which he imbibes in such large quantites his circuits overload. The reason: his inability to live up to the reputation of his famous father. The result: well, look at the photo.

It's not pretty, is it?

Junior wallows in self-pity. Just touch him to hear his laments and complaints and his bizarre theories (for instance, about Darth Vader being his real father, or the true relationship between his father and C3PO.

Whatever you do, please DON'T give him anything to drink!

You can find R2D2 Jr. at the robot sanitorium on Whimsy Kaboom.

Poor thing. (Please forgive any typos I may make; the monitor has gotten all blurry.)

Worse yet, I fear you may need to prepare for an influx of Japanese robots; news is that with a reduction in consumer spending, robots in Japan are being idled.
