When the New Trends School in California announced at the beginning of summer that all their human teachers were being replaced by teaching robots, there was weeping and the gnashing of teeth. That was from the teachers. On the other hand, students were ecstatic.
But yesterday it was revealed that the teaching robots didn't even make it through the summer school term. As teachers, the robots performed well. It was their extra-curricular activities that caused the problem.
Yesterday at lunch time, a 69-year-old cleaning lady at the school discovered a dozen teaching robots having a massive orgy in one of the classrooms. All the robots were immediately fired and junked. The shaken cleaning woman who had witnessed the robotic orgy had to be treated for shock. As she was carted off to the hospital by a crew of emergency medical technicians, she was heard saying, "I...I...didn't know that machines could do that kind of stuff. It was really, um, something to see."
Now for the back story. Last night Spoof reporter Gail Farrelly eavesdropped at a local pub, where a group of New Trends teachers were celebrating their good fortune at being rehired. The computer science teacher was receiving congratulations all around and was the recipient of a lot of free drinks. "No big deal," he said. "It was easy as pie. Man is master of the machine. Programming machines is my specialty. At least we all got our jobs back."
And some robots had one helluva good time before they bit the dust.
