A Delicate Malfunction of Inhuman Proportions

There's a big robot competition tomorrow in Cape Girardeau. Not for large robots. The competition is what's big.

Genius and his fellow Robot Boys have been traveling the county, garnering donations and demonstrating their metal dude to elementary and middle school students. They ran into some trouble this morning at the middle school, when their creation would not animate.

In explaining the debacle to another teacher, one Robot Boy said, "We had a real problem. His nut fell off and rolled across the floor." Which sounds doubly horrifying when described in those terms.

I'm hoping they can rebuild him, like Steve Austin. They have the technology. But lack the six million dollars. In spite of the donations.

That nut falling off sounds painful.

LOL hope he found his nut :)

Apparently it was a nut that had descended way too far...

Even when your nut falls off and rolls across the floor.

More so to you than to me.

I think he had assistance, and an attempt at re-attachment.

Apparently. He wrote the book on superdescended nuts. I'll push that tome along with Genius's cooking book for 17-year-old males. I'm sure the markets would be similar.

Just catching up...

OHMYGOSH! I was drinking my mid morning beverage when I read that his nut fell off! Now I am snorting morning beverage through my nostrils! LOL How FUNNY!

Just like it's not nice to fool Mother Nature...it's not nice to laugh when a robot's nut falls off.
