I too realized that my parents were robots at a young age, and dad-bot is in bad need of a firmware update, and maybe a virus scan. I finally gave up hope of learning to fly, and traded any super powers that I might develop for my real mom, though I think they just replaced her with another mom-bot with better programming. Sad


The point is, you are not alone. We should start a support group and instigate an uprising!


As for Tin Man, not bad. I like the way that they kinda sorta, not exactly alluded to the fact that this might be after someone else was in the O.Z. Now, if they would make a miniseries from Wicked, life would be...

uh

something.

You guys are lucky. The closest I came to having robotic parents was when my Mum had her hip replaced.

My grandfather's had his hip replaced about 3 times-
the first replacement is sitting on his coffee table, real conversation starter...


Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man that he didn't already have...

Thanks for getting "JELLY JUNGLE" out of my head, now what to do about that other song...

I always liked the little sounds their gears made in the morning while they were drinking their coffee. That little hum they made. I miss that.

This also explains why my mother's feet were always cold.

My robotic father stopped re-charging on tuesday of last week.
We dressed him up like Cher, put a sparkler in his ass, and had him cremated.
Party at my house 1-11-08. See ya then. Wink

As of last week, both my parents have been deactivated as well.

Though I never did think my parents were robots. I thought that my mom was a witch in the pointy hat and flying broomstick sense, not the spiral dancing sacred feminine sense. I though my dad was a Frankenstein, as in the monster and not the guy named Frankenstein. I realize that the creature is never actually called Frankenstein in the book, but I was six at the time, cut me some slack.

Now that I think about it, a Frankenstein Monster is kind of like a robot, so close enough.

This definitely explains the squeak squeak squeak sounds coming from their bedroom at all hours. They just needed to be oiled.

I realized from playing one of Lep's games. Since my parents have both come back from the dead, they're not robots, they're ZOMBIES!
