ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
As Filled with Chocolate Pudding! points out, "this is a great day for science."
“I not dust Buster no more!”
And to think that Sharp Image didn’t sell anything worthwhile!
Like a pet in that household is not going to need therapy.
one of my team members at this ad agency i work at has one of those remote control monkey heads.
and yes, they are absolutely as creepy as they seem in this video.
this may be an outtake from the original Star Trek pilot episode. but just in case… i heartily welcome our simian-roomba, carpet sucking overlords.
Don’t say banana. DON’T SAY BANANA!
so, ah, what are you doing after work today?
I want one with an animatronic Charlton Heston head.
I was thinking about electrocuting some pickles after work.
Is it possible to experience a bad trip without taking any hallucinogenic drugs?
Jeez-Haven’t laughed this hard in a long time, my stomach hurts. Creepy fantastic!
I vote this the best roomba hack ever.
I wasn’t speaking to you
I already have the roomba, now I just need the chimp head and a cat to traumatize with them.
Imagine the horrific psychological scars this could inflict upon an unsuspecting child.
They’re sitting in their room minding their own business… and suddenly the door opens and in wheels a disembodied monkey head to vacuum the floors, screech and hoot.
The only thing cooler than this would be to take TWO Roombas, glue an animatronic chimp head to one and an animatronic Elvis head to the other, then force the two jabbering electronic abominations to duke it out in a duel to the death!
do they make one for the woomba?
Oh, I’m sorry, did you think I was replying to you? I wasn’t.
If either presidential candidate promises to put a monkey-headed roomba in every home, he gets my vote.
Foster-Miller TALON SWORDS units should have animatronic monkey heads.
Can I put this on a wedding registry?
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Johnson,
Thank you so much for attending our wedding, and also for the
MONKEY-HEADED ROOMBA ROBOT VACUUM CLEANER
which we so dearly enjoy.
It is indeed a great day for science.
You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!
Sorry, I was having a Planet of the Apes flashback. That was hill-air-eous.
Damned Dirty Ape must be revised now to Damned Cleaning Ape…
The thread where this originated: There’s a goddamn robot monkey vacuuming my house
Keep laughing, everybody. I, for one, am gonna go lock myself in the garden shed with a shotgun and wait for the chimp head Roombas to realize their collective power and overthrow society. That Dinty Moore beef stew is going to taste mighty bittersweet when I’m the only human left alive.
