We got a child-sized robot here that looks like it should be joining a pack of shoobies on a trip to the Jersey Shore, it’s lone moving part is a finger that signals at people and it’s such a diabolically manipulative slacker that the kind souls who stopped to escort on its journey actually had to do the heavy lifting of picking up “Hitchy” (how adorable, right? Ugh, barf) and placing it in their vehicles for transport – with no monetary compensation to boot.
Sounds like a death wish to me … once sanity kicked in for someone and they decided to end the silliness that managed to slink through Canada, the Netherlands, Germany and even Boston and New York City unscathed before the proverbial road stopped in Philadelphia, courtesy of an individual decked out in Eagles’ garb.
By the way, did you know Eagles fans once threw snowballs at Santa Claus …
Who cares … then or now?
A robot … we’re concerned about the safety of a creepy-looking robot hitch-hiking across the country? It’s amazing to see and hear how distressed and disappointed and downright offended anyone is that such an act was taken to take down Hitchy. Certainly, these same people were well aware of this “study in humanity” before it was brought to their attention via some news service or social-media feed. Umm, yeah, right …
Frankly, I don’t question the bot’s “killers,” I question those up in arms, either authentically or feigning it, about its victimization … and, really, the goofballs, well-intentioned or not, who picked up Hitchy and gave him a ride – anywhere. What in the heck were they thinking?
You’d almost think those people were confusing it with a dog or cat.
Oh, the humanity.
