Robotic Mule: a creature of grace and beauty



Ok, if I had one of these here is what I'd do:


  • Build a variety of heads to represent different emotions
  • Take him out for walks on a leash
  • Yell at him and kick him in public -
    "You're so stupid!" *kick* "I don't respect you!" *shove*
  • Dress up like a sheik and ride on its back in a dignified manner
  • Lead him into homes or places of business then run and hide
  • Put him on an elevator by himself and send him to different floors - haha that would freak people out

I know why the caged bird sings.

So this morning I woke up to the sound of fluttering and crashing. I opened my eyes and guess what, there's a goddamn bird trapped in my room!

First response: "What the fuck is that??"

Second response: Promptly hide under a blanket

Third response: "Wait, how the hell...?"


My windows were closed and the door was locked, this bird must have found its way in through a crawl space or something. After standing up and dodging my panic-stricken guest for a minute, I finally got it to fly out the window. So anyway here's my idea: Alarm clocks that release birds into your room. I dare you to sleep through that.
