Don't Fear the Hardee's Robot

Posted By on Mon, Jun 27, 2011 at 3:00 PM

While some robots are plotting world domination by pandering to the human weakness for breakfast foods, others are having trouble understanding how food works.

As Hardee's unveils its new hand-breaded chicken sandwich, it introduces a robot with an eating disorder. Seems the poor thing doesn't have a digestive system.

Granted, it's a Hardee's robot, so it's not going to be terribly bright. Consider its other spokespeople: parents who let turkeys babysit, employees wielding burger cannons and Paris Hilton.

We don't have to worry about the Hardee's robots. When they come at us with burgers and chicken sandwiches, a flash of a shiny object will be enough to distract them while we battle the breakfast 'bots.
