Another young person's dream, waiting to be tarnished and rusted by the saline of reality...

Girl: (Playing Taboo - the clue is "Judge") Ooh! Uh, okay, [Jess], this is what you want to be when you grow up!
[Jess]: A robot?

Well, it should still be possible, if she were to become a Stepford wife or a modern-day singer.

Wait....if you can't be a robot when you grow up, then where did optimus prime and megatron come from?
Or are there different rules for transformers?

optimus prime: sit down next to megatron, we need to have a talk. i am the cobra commander of this house.
or something like that.
the point is, transformers can indeed be children. with amazing genes.

Yeah, everybody would totally pick on Artoo if he had a limp. Any person with a limp would definately have to break it if they wanted to be really be that midget guy inside the bot's successor.

Picture the horrifying alternative reality...

C-3PO: "Come along R-2, you meddlesome gimp of a droid. I know you are burdened with a limp but do your best."
R2D2: "I'm differently-abled, you shiny yellow ponce!"

Truly, it's chilling.

I propose spending C$1.2 billion on a research project to develop "Ugg Eradication Drones" so that we can gain the upper hand in the upcoming, apocolyptic showdown between mankind and the subhuman, Ugg-wearing filth.

This is supposed to be *overheard* at Western, not "my friend said something I thought was funny" at Western.

Lame.
