Zombie Robot Caption Contest Answered

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!

mega glitch

Broken instructable layout.bmp

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

Must not have been paying much attention.

if your watching this,
(the zombies keep trying to get us to teach them the robot)

How do you make font size smaller than normal?


GorillazMiko doesn't know. *gasp*

,,^,,Tiny text,,^,,,,^,,^,,Makes even smaller text,,^,,^,,keep repeating this and it gets smaller and smaller.

smaller text

microscopic text

No, multiple commas don't make it even smaller.

comma comma carot comma comma Small text comma comma carot comma comma

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...

wee,e, e,e, e,e,

>How do you make font size smaller than normal?


Use two "," s before and after your text.

I know that.

I'm talking about the super small one that uses the & , symbols.

? &&testing&& Nope, doesn't work. What are you talking about? Did I miss something?

& meant and..

,,^,, Tiny Text ,,^,,,,^,,^,, Even Smaller Text ,,^,,^,,
Keep repeating, and it'll get smaller.

Ahh. TinyText. I guess it works!!
Copy and paste that. See what it is.

It's there. Copy the surrounding text. It will show up.

Okay, wait.
"TinyText again!"
Yes, it's there. In between the quotes.

Guys, get off, you are ruining my drum solo

I removed my own comment yet it says (removed by community request). Looks like a bug.

I have seen that when you have a reply attached to it before deleting it.

1. every body dance now 2. did you fart or are you just decomposing 3. and c3-po thought he had it rough

1: "That white chain is so tacky." 2: "Too bad zombie bites don't affect robots." 3: "Save me GLaDOS!"

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.

Entry 2: We're doomed... Oh master Eric! You've come to save me! Oh my... how horrible...

The Oh my really should have given it away.

Darn, that one was hilarious, yet a bit totoo perfect, as in, something that couldn't possibly been have said before.

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.
