Here’s what we do know.
One, the culture that designed that robot has a level of technology that is at least equal to our own, post-war. Two, they clearly have a surplus of food if they are able to use oranges and pineapples for frivolous purposes. Three, there is obviously some law or prohibition against mirrors and glass, since making a rainbow is astonishingly less labor-intensive than this system would have you believe.
With all this in mind, today’s shirt goes from a cheerful little splash of color to the dark tale of a robot in a world gone mad, never questioning, never disobeying, just slowly taking all the fruit and vegetables from its people, sometimes by force, as those it once served begin to die of scurvy and malnutrition. Until one day, the very last pineapple is placed on the conveyer belt, and the robot falls dormant, staring up at the bits of the rainbow that soon will fade.
A little like the end of Battlestar Galactica, don’t you think?
Wear this shirt: when programming a robot to carry pineapple. What else would you wear when programming a robot to carry pineapple? We’ll have you know that in this year’s “programming a robot to carry pineapple” collection this took the Palm D’Or.
Don’t wear this shirt: if you have massive sexuality issues. You don’t have to panic every time you see a rainbow, you know. You’re not even that attractive in the first place.
This shirt tells the world: “Your minds are too green, I despise all I’ve seen, you can’t stake your lives on a Rainbow Machine.”
We call this color: Bow-by Blue
