Zombie Robot Caption Contest Answered

Picture of

In case you have not heard the breaking news, our beloved Instructables Robot and its beloved family member Instructables-Robot have been captured by a dancing zombie horde. As we looked over the zombie's ghoulish celebratory pictures, we can only wonder what must be running through our poor robot's mind.

Perhaps you can look at this picture and figure out what our poor robot is saying. Post the caption as a comment in this forum.

All are eligible to enter. Contestants are limited to three (and we mean three!) entries. The winner of this contest gets a copy of Electronic Gadgets for the Evil Genius. The contest will be judged by Bilal's Undead Severed Zombie Head on Friday and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

Caption Winners!
There were a few good ones, so I think we'll send the runners up a patch:

The winner was }{itch with:
robot : "Please do not respond to this email, the Instructables Robot already has its arms full of zombies, and it might drop yours!"

Patch for, Momo!:
"All we need now are the Sith, Pirates, and Werewolves, and then our Facebook Convention feels so much more complete!"

Patch for DoItOrDie:
Girl Scouts, Jehova's Witnesses, Salesmen ... of all the pests Robot had to deal with, the undead were, by far, the most persistent.

Thank you all for giving the robot a voice!

Ew. I don't like Windows Vista. Though, I also don't see a glitch.

Is this what it looks like the whole time for you? There is a giant glitch there because the css styles were not loading correctly

Lol. All I have to do to read that text is hit "Shift-Command-S". The computer reads it for me! Speech function FTW!

(Your small text reads "microscopic text.")

I can write subliminal messages!

And yours is "I can write subliminal messages" However, they do not work if the being cannot read them...

Entry 1: Robot: You know, it's at times like this, when I'm trapped with a bunch of crazed, dazed, man-eating zombies with a giant felt Architeuthis, and at risk of rusting or running low on power, that I really wish I'd listened to what my robot mother told me when I was young. Giant Felt Architeuthis: Why, what did she tell you? Robot: I don't know, I didn't listen.

I'll admit, it was based off of a line of dialogue in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams. I highly recommend it.
