Why lie, I need oil.

I love and hate those few seconds before a homless person strikes up a conversation in passing. I have heard all kinds of amazing stories, testimonails, sale pitches, and outlandish comments. My favorite by far was when a homeless guy tried to get me, Sam, and Kevin to invest in flying cars that were going to be released in 2010. I still wonder if maybe he really was from the future and I missed out on the biggest investment opportunity of my life. I bet that homelss robots would have really cool things to say too but I imagine that they would all just want a couple bucks to buy something to fill them up at the state run liquid fast food establishment across from the social security office.

I swear I have seen this guy at pioneer park. Did you shoot reference there?
Also, did you airbrush the bottle out of his hand?

This robot is freakin' awesome. I love how you gave him a belly.

Wouldn't that be funny to see a robot in the unemployment line, stinkin' of gin and saying, "They replaced me with a human. A HUMAN! Whu-hu-hu."
