Just figures that robot would have his own custom domain. Hell, he probably hosts it himself. Literally.
So I sent him this:
To: Bender [email@example.com]
Subject: I love Bender, too!
I want to be as evil as Bender if I grow up!
And nearly immediately I got the following response:
To: Brian Moon
Subject: Re: I love Bender, too!
Dear New Friend,
Thank you for writing to me, Bender. It really means a lot to me. Not many humans contact me because I am so rude and impatient. You’re starting to get on my nerves now. Quit buggin’ me, meatbag!
P.S. – Buy my DVD.
And, of course, there’s a bunch of promotional stuff located at that domain.
I love modern internet-based marketing. But only when they’re marketing things I love. When they’re things I don’t love, they suck.
In fact, my default ringtone is the theme song to “Futurama”… and my close friends announce their incoming calls on my iPhone with Bender saying, “Bite my shiny metal ass.” Which makes me laugh every time I hear it.
But I want to have my all-time favorite Bender line:
I’ll have to rip it myself, I think. Can’t find it out on the internets.
