Creepy Automaton Can't Identify a Donut

Not that this is earth-shattering or particularly important, but it goes back to something Chez and I have been talking about on the podcast. Here's the Romney Unit failing to come up with the word "donut."

"Ha. Ha. I shall indulge in another torus-shaped food product decorated with chemically synthesized cocoa paint. In my home world, the Uncanny Valley, we do not have such delicious gastronomical products for our mouth holes. Ha. Ha. Hee."

    “If Mitt Romney did not fear incarceration from human authority figures, he would terminate your life functions by applying sufficient pressure to your blunt skull so as to force its collapse!”

    I’m willing to give Mitt Romney the benefit of the doubt here. Well, sort of.

    It sounds to me like Romney is struggling to say something clever and by the time he rejects all the possibilities (delicacies? confections? beignets?) as inappropriate, he can’t bring himself simply to call them donuts. As a last resort, he chooses “goodies,” a good, solid, one-of-them sort of word.

    Some people should simply never try to be clever, and Romney’s one of them.

      Well, it’s not like he did anything that showed him to be truly out of touch. Like put mustard on his hamburger.

      “Romney” and “clever” do not belong in the same sentence.

  • Mittens doesn’t eat anything that he can’t put caviar on.

    Mitt Romney. Man of the Common People (not). At least the America hatin’, terrorist sympathizin’, Kenyan born, Muslim socialist would know what a donut is. Wait! Will Fox News declare donuts as anti-American for that?

  • He doesn’t like ethnic food.

  • Can’t tell if robot… or just Mormon.
