Book 1: The Tub of Happiness
Everybody's Gotta Eat


Narrator:Today's mercenary musing: Can robots eat?
Schlock:I don't know why you bothered to come along, Ennesby.
Ennesby:Hey, I can eat. I just don't need to eat. It's not a question of ability.
Ennesby:Eating is just a matter of mashing the food up, dissolving it, pulling some useful stuff from it, and then passing the rest back into the ecosystem. Allow me to demonstrate.
SFX:<Crunch> <Mash, mash>
SFX:<Gurgle, gurgle>
Brad:That was my salad...
Schlock:That was my chair.
Narrator:There's your answer, folks. Robots can eat, but should never be allowed to eat out.
