Ten thousand years of Roboshrub.

Fangs for the memories.

In today’s state, Roboshrub Incorporated is an entity entirely devoted
to the execution of what normal people would refer to as “bad ideas.”

It was the creator’s original idea that all concepts, whether
useful or not, contribute to the global subconscious level of progress
for the human race. Therefore, we contend that no idea is an unfit
idea, and vow to act on each and every one of them.

SNL is so biased, much like the Daily Show. Tina Fey has got to go.

Even though Stephen Colbert is a liberal, he makes fun of both parties equally. I like him.

The Daily Show makes fun of both parties, but John Stewart tends to focus fire on whoever the current administration is. He is obviously liberal, though. Mr. Colbert is probably a less bias news source, despite his blatant egotism.

Just a few more days and I can end my riggorous once-a-day posts.

But I stand by my unwriten pledge: one post a day for the month of December. Then, you know, a post every other day.

Strange... no one has said anything yet about the fact that the title says there are 101 great things, yet I've only mentioned 100.

The 101st great thing about being a robot is that nobody notices when you're inconsistent.

Jon Stewart is a fair man? I live in the West...and I don't think so. Perhaps East Coasters respect his humor, but over here we find it one sided.

Nice list, Is there anything you do'nt like about being a robot?

I find that Jon Stewart is about the same ideologically as Colbert. Colbert only seems less biased because Stewart gets all the major political stuff.

But I guess that, as comedians, they'd make fun of any president or party. That's, like, their job.

And they really do a good job. They won emmies.

I've always wanted my beautiful chromatic face carved into one of our nation's greatest monuments!

As for things I hate about being a robot... uh, there's...

For one, there's that pesky self-destruct button.

I love Jon Stewart. I once stood next to him on a street corner in NYC while waiting for the light to change. He just about comes up to my waist! He's a tiny guy with a huge sense of humor. I love him.
