R.U.R. Robot


Looks like the tin man’s wants to pop Dorothy because Toto peed on his leg. Fortunately he’s been restrained. He wasn’t a nice guy in those days.

Actually it’s a promo for a 1928 production of the 1921 play R.U.R. [“Rossum’s Universal Robots”] that introduced the word “robot” to the world. Ever since then the control panel has always been in the front.

    For some reason I kept thinking “bondage” and “doing it without shorts”.

    I’m positive that makes me a bad person.

    That robot looks so fakey!

    Lemur King– No argument from me since I’m at a loss as to what you’re talking about.

    plane– Fakey? Not compared to these.

    Asimov would make “robot” a household word.

    And that dude has some snazzy boots…

    nursem– One of these days I’m gonna steal one of your quirky posts. You’ll be the second to know. =)

    Necro– Missus Strutts pronouces it as “row-but.” I don’t know why, but it sounds funny to me.
