POLITICS: How will the robots vote?

As we enter the last few hours of this exciting election(Foreigners: UK General Election), Angry Chimp knows there will be many of you out there who are still undecided as to which way to vote.

For this reason we have provided this handy guide to the voting habits of your favourite robots.

Angry Chimp hopes this has helped.

Also, if the excitement of the election just isn't doing it for you, don't be afraid to try to guess the names of all the robots.

Have fun.

UPDATE: Dr Itchy got them all correct...

Labour: R2D2 (Star Wars)
Lib Dem: C3PO (Star Wars)
Tories: Marvin the paranoid android (Hitchhiker's Guide)
BNP: Maximillian (The Black Hole)
Green: Huey (Silent Running)
Indie: Bender (Futurama)

See, that was fun, wasn't it?

Dr Itchy wins a warm feeling of success.

Now can anyone guess why each robot so accurately reflects the party they represent? anyone? no?

Yep, dead horse flogged.

Ahahahahaha! You wag, you!


Ship Creak said...

What was that robot who's voting green? I remember seeing the movie, there was him and a slightly smaller version in blue. Living on a spaceship with the last human being or something.

Didn't the human guy (who I could swear was played by the guy who played Willy Wonka) run him over in a futuristic beach-buggy thing?

Wow...I knew 3 of the robots!

Do I win something?

The green robot is from Silent Running with Bruce Dern playing a space hippie.

The Saturnyne - indeed it is exciting, I'm tingling with anticipation as I wait to find out by how much Labour have won, euh.

Ship Creak - Yes, Yes - not last human being, but last something, yes - no - yes

Boabhan, you need to name them to win here - not that this is competition or anything...

Tina, rubbish guess, I suspect you are not taking this seriously...

Anon is correct - i'm after names people, names.

You'll get no more blogs out of me until you get it all right...

I can sit here all day, we'll see who rusts first.

I only know R2D2, C3PO, and Bender. My geekness is limited, I'm afraid. :(

Dr. Itchy said...

Oh, for heaven's sake.
R2D2, C3PO, Marvin the paranoid Android, Maximillian, Huey and Bender.

Do I win a hot prize?

Herge Smith said...

Well folks Dr itchy got them all right. Nice work.

Chris - What's up Buck? Sadly Tweaky lost his deposit at the last election. Oh dear.

Connie said...

"Congrats" R2D2 on Tone's historic turd term.... I mean third term.

Would Marvin really bother voting? I mean, what's the point? Brain the size of a Universe and all that.
