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.

Product #3928-81m “Rocket-Propelled Shoelaces”

Reggie Racer needs to get to school- five minutes from now! But he lives a half hour away from his school! Can you help Reggie get to school faster?

If Reggie misses school, he goes back to fat camp.

With Roboshrub Incorporated’s all new Rocket-Propelled Shoelaces, Reggie can get to school, and in only a matter of nanoseconds. Engineered by the Shoddy Engineering Department, each shoelace contains a small hyper-fossil combustor, which is 32% more effective than conventional rocket boosters.

You can grill a ten stone pig over this thing!

So yes, Reggie did get to school in time. Unfortunately, he approached the speed of light and was transposed into the puppet dimension. And no one ever escapes the puppet dimension.

Well, he was sent to some kind of dimension...

The concept of rocket-propelled footgear really took off after the success of our “Zero Calorie Shoes” product. Our customers loved the idea of weight loss, but hated actually walking. So we revamped the whole project, and streamlined the Roboshrub Inc. foot policy. Rocket-Propelled Shoelaces are intended to work in conjunction with Zero Calorie Shoes, or indeed any shoes, turning your feet into feats of fanaticism. Fly from point A to point B in the blink of an eye! Impress your friends by doing somersaults in mid-air! Any kind of aerial endeavor is now possible thanks to Rocket-Propelled Shoelaces!

Those brooms are not part of the complete set because they lack discipline.

They look nice, but do they taste like ham?

We're still working on ham-flavored shoelaces.

But we haven't yet ruled out temporal instability as a source of aglets.

You can grill your suspects. But you'll need a special detective license for that.

Nobody eats lemon chicken any more. These days it's all done over the Internet. That's what my brain says, at least.

could you invent a soy product that tastes like soy instead of tasting like something else?

Soy isn't supposed to be edible. That's why they put warning labels on it.

Say, that Reggie looks familiar. I think I saw him at fat camp. He found the stash of Big Macs.

Wherever burgers are, Reggie follows. In space. In place. And in your face. It's all a race.

Rhyming is like timing the sliming of

blaming when the sky is raining.

Routers reroute, and lighters delight.

But ice cream is melting this fine summer night.

Wow! Imagine the hijinx that will ensue when you replace ordinary shoelaces with rocket propelled shoelaces!

Absorpsion takes time... time we don't have. We need to streamline out benchmark progress initiatives and fight the time-burglars with maximum productivity!

Replacing regular shoelaces has been our top priority since 1956.
