YERMITS VS. ROBOTS: BATTLE OF INCOMPREHENSIBILY CUTE THINGS, OR MAYBE THINGS DRESSED AS OTHER THINGS WE DIDN’T REALLY TALK ABOUT WHAT TO CALL IT.
This is week two. The Theme: YOUR FAVOURITE DOCTOR.
I really only have one thing to say: FEZZES ARE COOL.
Here is Jenny Yermit’s AMAZINGLY AWESOME entry:
I LOVE IT. CHECK OUT THAT FREEZE RAY!
It also falls to me to provide this week’s prize: one lucky commenter (on either blog, it doesn’t matter) will win a robot fingerpuppet wearing a fez! hurrah!

If I’d really been planning ahead, I would have saved this bot for the very end! Then I could be all like “it’s not over until the fat lady… oh. nevermind.”

I was all set to say that I’m a little afraid to mail this bot out because it might go missing in transit, but then I read the Amelia Earhart Wikipedia entry. And then I realized that she was actually totally kick-ass and amazing, and that a joke about her disappearance is actually kinda lame. And unfortunate. And probably not very funny.
Poop jokes are still fine though, right?

It’s been awhile since high school history class, and I realized that I really only have two hazy recollections about Napoleon: he was a french dude who did some stuff, and he was shorty mcshortshort.
So, I thought I should probably fact check this, mostly because all I really remember about this unit was that the teacher played ABBA’s “Waterloo” for us (warning, the first bit of that video will totally give you seizures. And not just because of what Bjorn is wearing.). So I went where we all go when fact checking is needed: the Wikipedia.
1. Napoleon: TOTALLY FRENCH
2. Napoleon: TOTALLY A DUDE
3. Napoleon: TOTALLY DID SOME STUFF
4. Napoleon: TOTALLY WHO ABBA WAS SINGING ABOUT
5. Napoleon: NOT ACTUALLY THAT SHORT AFTER ALL.
So there you go. Mr. Bonaparte wasn’t labouring under a need to prove himself because of a height complex, he was labouring under a need to prove himself so he could take command and rule the world. Just like every other General-type dude in history.

I hate these hats. Actually, I really hate these hats. If I could, I’d invent a time machine with the express purpose of going back in time to make sure no one ever made a hat like this (yes, I would re-write Seuss if I had to).
There is one good thing about them though- it gives me a good 100 yard advance notice that a jerkbag is coming my way (this is especially true when one is not at an amusement park or in a sports stadium; and since I try to eshew both as much as possible, luckily I only see one or two of these a year).
Remember how Harry and his plucky band were wearing these at the world Quidditch cup? Yeah, that was super dumb. Like wizards, with all of MAGIC at their disposal, couldn’t come up with something better than distinctly unmagical felt muggle hats.

I’d love to do a bot-themed set of playing cards. Anyone know where I can get playing cards printed cheaply?

Yep, yep, got my coffee, now let’s dig a hole, put some pylons around it, and come back in a month or two to fill it in!

One thing I hadn’t anticipated when creating Robot a Day was how many arrows I’d have to make!

Honestly, I really only did Paul Bunyan so I could do Babe. A. GIANT. BLUE. OX. How cool is that? I would build a house on its back and travel the countryside in comfort.
