News From the Robots (CTO Updates #6)
This one is a bad one, my beloved followers. Yes, it’s 2019, and we don’t have readers anymore, we have followers, because of course.
So this is a bad issue of the Update, as we’re working on a bunch of top secret stuff which I can’t really report, because of course.This issue is so bad, the grammar and vocabulary is so poor, and because the word because is so overused (and commas, omg!), that it is as if they filmed a Friends reunion this year, but the Central Perk location is in Sioux Falls, and there’s a Brad Pitt cameo playing his role in Fight Club, and he’s just Ross’ alter ego.So, yeah, really really bad. The good thing, though, is that in 2 or 3 months I will have so much to talk about that it will feel like a Godfather and Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back mashup, but in best possible way, you know? Can you imagine Darth Vader Corleone? Because I can.
