HitchBOT decapitated in Philadelphia
« on: August 03, 2015, 06:26:34 pm »
A moment of silence, please, for the hitchhiking robot. After an illustrious career hitchhiking through Europe and New England, HitchBOT was stopped by a vandal in Philly. City of Brotherly Love, indeed!?!

Cecil the Lion, Amy Winehouse, and HitchBOT I get, but who's the drummer?  ???

Never heard of HitchBOT until somebody trashed him down in Old City. Probably some drunk 20-something straight boy who came out of a bar down there. Who else would still be wearing a Randall Cunningham Eagles jersey?

David Grohl from Nirvana. They somehow thought it would be funny to add him...

I thought he looked like Dave Grohl--hard to believe, but I actually  do know who he is--but he's very much alive. Isn't he?  ???

Maybe somebody thinks he isn't, one way or another. ...

Doesn't it just figure?  The robot got across Canada, Germany and the Netherlands, and comes to the US and gets destroyed.


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!
