And the picture:
As always, the actual deadline is some time after Saturday at midnight.
ANDY: Boy that is one really swell robot you got there. Really fine peace of machinary indeed.,But Y’know what your robot really needs to really make it over the top? Andymarks!
Andy- Is this legal can they? no they didn’t?!
guy in green- yup they did it
Andy- a flux capacitor?
Well, there’s your problem, you don’t have a red mullet! Go live in Kentucky for 2 years and here’s some hair dye, and then call me in the mornin’ if it’s still not working for you…
See now I found the problem with your bot’ someone forgot to lock the hamster door, but don’t worry andymark is working on making some top of the line hamster power products.
Andy: I’m sorry sir, this isn’t covered by the warranty, but for only 3 easy payments of $14.99 we can upgrade you to the Gen. 2 servo edition! Let me put you through to our sales rep…
Dan, if you wouldn’t mind, would you pull this screwdriver out of my arm? My friends told me I have a screw loose, I was trying to fix it.
Dan: “Andy, did I ever tell you how much those strawberry highlights in your hair accentuate your beautiful eyes???”
Andy: “Uh, Dan, a little advice. If yer tryin’ to get some free stuff out of me, perhaps that isn’t exactly the best approach to use? closes eyes, shakes head slowly back and forth, and flicks his mane back like the best hair models around You should tell me how they enhance the rosy color in my cheeks instead!”
Dan, I just can’t quit you…
Baker: It doesn’t seem like there’s anything wrong with them.
Dan: We needed an excuse to get you to visit our pit…
Andy: “I don’t know captain, maybe if we, hmm. If we can somehow reverse the polarity on the main deflector dish…”
Dan: “Yes! And then we send one of the rookies…”
Andy: “One of the rookies, sir? That’s practically murder!”
Dan: “That’s a sacrifice we’ll just have to make. How soon can you finish?”
Andy: “If I can get started now we might make it in time for our next qualifying round.”
Dan: “I’ll send for the rookie immediately. Make it so!”
this is actually an ad for Nike
Andy: “Well see now, here’s your problem. You have to mount the CIMS to an A-M transmission horizontally. When you mount them vertically, the chains get all tangled.”
Proof that Andy had given in and let us spray dye his hair.
Andy: “Here’s your problem, you mounted your whole drive system on to the side of the robot. You also placed your battery at the top of your bot.”
Dan: “Andy, the robot is sitting on it’s side so we can work on it.”
Andy: “Boy is my face red. I’ll give you two AndyMark trannies if you get that camera and delete that picture and forget we ever had this conversation.”
Needless to say, the picture did not get deleted and Dan is not giving up the new trannies without a fight
When Copoili walks by we’ll grab him… you hold him down and I’ll dress him up like a pig farmer.
Then we’ll go get V-Nuen.
Andy: Now look, Dan, this is the third time I’ve come around to help you fix your trannies, and they’re not connected to the drive train! Any more of this and I’ll wrestle you like I would a pig!
Dan: OINK OINK BOOM! And you need pig-wrestling practice, Andy!
Security had to be called in to break this one up before it got too out of hand. Both teams’ cries of “That’s not Graciously Professional” didn’t work.
Andy: Listen, if you but this little accelerameter right on the positive wire going to the motors, then we might, MIGHT, be able to shake the robot rightside up.
Well there ya go, Dan! That’s why Swamp Thing’s been hitchin, to the right in autonomous. She’s got ticks in her gears!
