A robot dressed for success!

The robot Kirobo held a press conference at the International Space Station yesterday to complain about his attire. (Read about him and see him here).

"Like Rodney Dangerfield," he whined, "I get no respect." Kirobo is disgusted that his handlers have blasted him off to the International Space Station with nothing but the "clothes" on his back. He challenged his listeners, "How would YOU like to be sent off on an 18-month trip with one outfit only?" And, apparently, he's not totally impressed with that one black-and-white outfit. "No taste at all," Kirobo claimed. He said it looks like a tuxedo, or maybe a butler's outfit. His footwear? "That takes the cake," he said, adding, "I'm stuck with clunky red shoes that look kinda like boots." His aviator sunglasses aren't so bad, he reported, but he's already bored with them.

Kirobo pointed out, "I'm only 13 inches tall, for Pete's sake. How much would it cost them to fashion me an out-of-this-world wardrobe?" He admitted that he's enjoying his time on the International Space Station, although given a choice he'd rather be at New York Fashion Week.

Kirobo ended the press conference on an upbeat note by quoting what Lee Mildon once said, "People seldom notice old clothes if you wear a big smile."

"You think?," he said, a note of resignation in his voice.

And a big smile on his face.
