Robot Joke

It's the year 2025 
and a bunch of computers get together for an office party

The robots get drunk 
and try to undo the ribbon on the electronic typewriter 
with a straw


For those of you unfamiliar with the early IBM device above
Electronic typewriters were covered in your History of IT course
Beginning in 1910 with the 1st commercial teletypewriter installed by the Morkrum Company
major innovations such as the Bombe and Colossus at Bletchley Park during WWII
until the birth of the 1st PC in 1981
and the iPad in 2010

I was think about your idea about these robots getting together for a Christmas party in 2025. Wow! Now, that's a waaay cool and a very trippy idea, Soph! I wonder how Robots would or will conceptualize the birth of Jesus and his whole story among humankind?! Also, that made me wonder whether they're will be a figurative and literal Christ figure for robots by 2025? Now, that would be trippy to see for sure, Sister!!!
