    The boss got sick of having a factory full of robots.
    He had no on to berate, belittle, and humiliate. Life was sooo boring.
    So. He got rid of the robots, and hired a whole stack of workers.
    Life was good again.

    The machine can always apply for the job of building suicide booths. I’ve heard there’s an opening there after a certain bending robot quit his job.

    Existential questions:

    Why do the Chinese suspend their vending machine soft drinks cap-down?

    Does EVERYTHING in the PRC have to be handled in top-down fashion?

    Brother, can you spare a dime?

    The vending machines that give out Chinese food have signs saying “Machine out of WOK”.

    At least now the panhandling machines are telling you that it’s just going to take your money when it’s not give you what you want.
