One Two! One Two!
And through and through
The orange ball went swish and swack.

The clock read zero,
So gath'ring their hero,
The drive team brought him back.

And hast though scored the basketball?
Come to my arms, my beamish bot!
O Frabjous Day! Caloo Callay! he chortled on the spot.

Re: CD's Unofficial Caption Contest #732

There are people behind the robot. Then there is the robot itself. Then there are people in front of the robot.

I only have one question: is it a sammich?
