Rage Against The Machine

-Rob Bartlett will be at the Gotham Comedy Club in Manhattan this Saturday, December 5th. Tickets and more information can be found here.

-So in the past few weeks or so, a lot of you have probably noticed an "interesting" visitor on this site. He only speaks Japanese; he likes to chat (a lot);and he likes to sell potentially shady merchandise. In short, he's a spambot.

Well, I hate that it's come to this, but I've officially decided to install a No-Robot Policy here at this blog. I set up those little text box-thingys where you have to type in a gibberish word in order to comment; this ensures that only humans can post. Yes, I hate to discriminate against someone based on their ethnic origins (50% steel, 50% silicon). And yes, it pains me deeply to shun a lonely soul who just wants to talk to someone, anyone, about his massive piles of software, gadgets, and Viagra. But no one ever said that life was easy.

Yet there are so many unanswered questions about our visitor. What does a Japanese robot see in the Imus program? Why is he obsessed with Van Morrison? These posts started appearing around the FBN debut, so there has to be a draw there. Maybe he's fallen in love with the cute flatscreens behind the I-man and Charles? It doesn't add up.

At any rate, my apologies for not tending to this sooner, and let me know if our robot friend keeps posting spam. And incidentally, if a robot ever moves into your neighborhood, don't ever let him terrorize the elderly.

Hi CG,
Just checking the new procedure. I couldn't see the "word" so had to tell my browser to allow cookies at this site.

Take that bots!

Keyboard Jockey said...

I have one too, it likes my Lisa Lampanelli post. I didn't know it was Japanese. I thought it was Taiwanese :)

Al said...

Poor lil bots..maybe the robot wants his picture taken with Van Morrison!?

...still can't find any photos taken of Tony, Rob with Mr. Morrison...

We do not discriminate at RobShow.
If a Japanese Robot wants to buy a ticket to see the Christmas Extravaganza at The Gotham Comedy Club this Saturday Night, (212-367-9000...some seats still available) he/she/it will be welcomed with opened, holiday cheer-filled arms.


Sincerely
Not A Japanese Robot

Ever notice that when Rob is not there, the show kind of suckatates...like today, for example.

Sarah Palin said...

Maybe Imus could mention my book, 'Going Rogue' and help make it a best seller!

oh wait, it's already a Best Seller...


Never mind.

Scandanavian Robot said...

Yay Mayor Nagin and Gangsta Mickey!

CG said...

LOL, I'm glad to see that we have some special guests. I'm going to make a new post sometime this weekend, sorry about the delay.

In the meantime...if you are a married male celebrity having an affair, you should never, EVER email or text that woman until Charles McCord retires from the news business. When will these people ever learn?

Al said...

Charles certainly knows how to read an email, no?

whew...

Tiger Woods said...

Hey, wonder if I can get one of those Lionel Trains from the I-Man...

Fake Cardinal Egan, bejeez. said...

I-Man did a spot on WABC this morning: "Get two trains, run them into each other!" lol

Al said...

"LOOK, a train wreck!"

Nobody does better live commercial reads than Imus...

Those chamonix skin care spots are pretty funny, too! "I'm here for the party and I stayed too long, now look at me"...lol
