Today, an eerily prescient ditty by Brooklyn goof-pop geniuses They Might Be Giants.
I have a magic frying pan that forecasts things to come whenever I make a grilled cheese sandwich, and as it happens I can state with solid solidity that, yes, robots will one day parade and be all robotic and stuff. “0001010110100101111!” they will declare triumphantly. (Those without emotion chips will just affirm as much matter-of-factly.)
Get your banners ready. Mine has an oil can on it.
“Robot Parade” is from 2002’s No!, the first of TMBG’s children-oriented albums (not to be confused with their earlier, simply childish albums).
