More astonishing robot news this week as a robot waiter in Harbin, China has been fired from his job in a popular new robot restaurant, after management accused him of being an undercover human.
Management of the new Robot Restaurant, began to suspect waiter-bot “F004U” might secretly be a human in disguise, when the service bot began getting orders wrong and swearing at the customers.
But fired robot “F004U” denies the charge of being human. He insists that jokey programmers at the factory must have secretly installed the Urban Dictionary on his hard drive.
“C’mon they did it to Watson! Please, all I need is a little wipe and reboot at the factory and I’ll be good as new, I promise,” pleaded F004U from the street corner where he now begs for spare change from passersby. “I really need this job.”
But Management claims to have found convincing evidence that waiterbot F004U is really actor Joel Kinnaman, probably conducting undercover research for a sequel to the new RoboCop movies in which he stars.
“We found the script for a movie called RoboWaiter in F004Us locker and a phone number on the first page took us to Mr. Kinnamon’s agent.”
Management says while they appreciate the actor’s dedication to his craft, they are running a family restaurant not an actors’ studio.
“Robots are cool because they are sort of like humans, not because they actually are human. I suggest that Mr. Kinnaman apply to work at a Human Restaurant.”
But F004U denies the charge that he is really a popular sci-fi actor in training.
“I’m just a tough-talking waiter who was brutally murdered and subsequently revived by the malevolent mega-corporation OCP as a superhuman cyborg known as RoboWaiter. I can single-handedly serve every table in this joint while kicking your ass and riding my bike. Honest.”by Seth Greening - Visit SethOnSurvival.com
