Dawn of the Planet of the Robots

 

This afternoon, my friend Jeff texted this foreboding story to some of his friends, including my brother and me. 

Jeff: "If the kid stopped picking his nose and touching the chess pieces, this would not have happened." 

Earl: "'Righteous Robot Puts Brat in His Place' would have been a good headline'" 

Sean: "I hope the robot was saying 'Checkmate' over and over as he crushed the finger" 

Earl: "LOL"

Earl: "CHECKMATE--PUNY HUMAN" 

Sean: "I TOOK YOUR KING AND NOW TAKE YOUR FINGER"

I lost it, as the saying goes, at that point.

Good thing the kid and the robot were playing chess and not crokinole, or else the kid wouldn't be playing with a chip on his shoulder... he'd be playing with a chip in his shoulder.
