Hi all! My little neighbor Shawn attended a focus group recently, concerning an upcoming show called "OCD ROBOT", about an obsessive compulsive robot who lives in a crazy robot factory! Shawn knows about this blog, so he smuggled out one of the questionnaires! Now you, my faithful readers, will get an insider's view about how a show as groundbreaking as "OCD ROBOT" gets on the air!

Here it is, and Shawn, I owe you a big box of firecrackers for this one!

7. Do you like the idea of OCD ROBOT being made in a video game if we were to give you a free copy?

(__) The characters stay at the robot factory and talk to each other.
(__) The characters work out low-key social issues, in the robot facory.

(__) The characters converse about how they enjoy things never changing, and how interesting it is to stay in a robot factory, never venturing outside.
(__) Other (checking this box counts as a non-answer)

12. If we were to give you a thousand dollars, would you say that OCD ROBOT is the best show ever?

(__) YES
(__) no, but I’ll change my mind later
