Writer Tweets Hilarious Script for "Bot Written" Hallmark Christmas Movie

Hilariously creative writer Keaton Patti is at it again with the opening pages to a script he claims were written by a computer algorithm. He's done this before with a Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives script as well as an Olive Garden Commercial. At this point we know there is no computer program, and it's just Keaton's absurdist style, but he nails it perfectly.

New Reports Indicate UK Might Be Getting Its First Sex Robot Brothel

Well well, would you look at that? What a time to be alive huh? Honestly, surprised it took this long for headlines involving sex robot brothels to jump across our news feeds, but here we are. The Spanish company (sex robot brothel) in question, LumiDolls was recently quoted saying they're eagerly trying to expand their operations over to the UK soon as they can lock down an investor. The spokesperson for LumiDoll went on to say, "With LumiDolls, customers can perform any of their sexual fantasies they do not dare to do with a woman. This allows them to fulfill their wildest fantasies that maybe with other people they can not, maybe they have some physical complex that does not allow them to be comfortable with a person, and with a doll it makes them much easier.

New reports suggest that the UK might be getting its first sex robot brothel.

There's a war coming between man and machine. And I'm going to be very blunt with you, we are losing. 

How do I know? Well, last week, a robot destroyed a Rubik's Cube in under a second, so how do we ever expect to strike first?

You're probably thinking, what does a Rubik's Cube have to do with the fight for civilization, and the answer is problem solving. While we're still thinking about the cube, they're launching rockets. It all makes sense.

Our days of being amused by those creepy, horse-legged robots being pushed over by a broom are over. Boston Dynamics, the team behind those weird-looking horsebots finally put their monster on wheels, and it's coming for you at nine miles per hour. It also stands at six-and-a-half feet, can jump four-feet vertically, and lift 100 lbs. 

In other words, that bot's unstoppable.
