this reminds me of when i was a kid and instead of cleaning my room i spent all day trying to build a robot to clean my room, and we didn’t have the electronics kits to even do that back then so it was mainly fantasy in my mind, a plastic bucket with a broom and a fire log pincher claw arms, etc. it was never going to clean my room. needless to say my parents weren’t thrilled, but in my kid mind it was a totally legit effort that if succeed would have solved the bigger problem. i blame the jetsons.

I love the animation of the original radio play. When I was in seventh grade, I was reading this part in study hall and succumbed to uncontrollable laughter for about half and hour. I was kicked put of the room and could hardly even talk to explain to the teachers or staff what was so funny. My sides ached all day.

I feel like most of this problem could be fixed with a Teasmade.
