Annual Stupid Robot Contest Answered

Forget world domination, the next big thing in robotics is stupid robot tricks by useless robots. The classic rules of robotics get replaced with:

1. It must be mechanical
2. It must be completely useless from a societal point of view.
3. It must make people laugh.

Oh, I find him pretty useful from a societal point of view though. Now if only that robot could have a floppy wig it would occasionally flop out of its eyes.

But that could be useful, for scaring small children off your lawn.
