Flippy The Burger Flipping Robot Fired After 1 Day For Being Too Bad At Flipping Burgers

HAHAHA.  Robots: biggest bust ever?

Honestly I cannot believe how much time and energy I wasted being scared of the Robot Apocalypse.  All the news about AI and advancements in technology combined with constant viewings of Terminator and iRobot and Eagle Eye and Metalhead had me convinced humans were on the brink of becoming extinct.  That robots taking our jobs, fucking our girlfriends then wiping us off the map was imminent.

Well phase one of that has already started and…well, it’s just flat out embarrassing for the robots.  Remember Fabio?

Incompetent ass robot fired in his first week for gross incompetence.  Motherfucker couldn’t handle giving away free sausage samples in a grocery store.

He was sent to the sausage section and asked to hand out samples of sausages. He did so with his trademark enthusiasm, but customers weren’t impressed, and actually went out of their way to avoid going near him.

Humans performing the same task managed to get 12 customers to eat sample sausages every 15 minutes. Fabio only managed an average of two.

“Unfortunately, Fabio didn’t perform as well as we had hoped,” Margiotta said. “People seemed to be actually avoiding him.”

Not to mention his creepy robot ass was sexually harassing everybody in a 5 aisle radius.

Fabio was programmed with directions to hundreds of items in the company’s flagship Edinburgh store and initially charmed customers with his ‘hello gorgeous’ greeting, playful high fives, jokes and offers of hugs. [Telegraph]

Time’s up Fabio you fucking pervert.

And guess what?   It wasn’t a one time thing.  Here we are 2 months later and we’ve got another total failure in the robot employment workforce.

Flippy the burger-flipping robot shut down after 1 day because he couldn’t flip burgers.

INEWS – Flippy, a burger-flipping robot, was recently unveiled with great fanfare by its creator, Miso Robotics, which boasted of the machine’s ability to grill as many as 2,000 patties a day. But fears that Flippy and its ilk could soon usurp fast food workers may have been unfounded: Flippy has taken a sabbatical.

After finding gainful employment at a US burger restaurant, Caliburger, Flippy was expected to wow patrons this week before seeing replica Flippies being rolled out at as many as 50 outlets. However, excited customers in California hoping to catch a glimpse of Flippy sweating it out in the kitchen on Thursday were left disappointed. The robot was nowhere to be found; instead a sign advised customers that the new chef would be “coming soon”.

That’s right folks.  The big bad robots everyone warned you about and had you scurrying for your doomsday bunkers aren’t even smart or talented enough to handle to first job of pimple faced 15 year olds everywhere.

Humiliating.

The store manager is being trained in the “the ins and outs of working with robots”, USA Today reported. “Specifically, putting burger patties together, seasoning them, and getting them ready for the robot to grab them, flip and get ready for customers,” the publication said.

What’s so hard about that?

“Mostly it’s the timing,” the newspaper reported the restuarant group’s chief technology officer Anthony Lomelino, as saying. “When you’re in the back, working with people, you talk to each other. With Flippy, you kind of need to work around his schedule,” Mr Lomelino said.

So everyone who has been picturing this…
