Last night’s Flipping Out featured one of the most tense human vs. machine dynamics to date. In a duel similar to 2001‘s Dave vs. HAL 9000, it was Jeff’s beleaguered housekeeper Zoila vs. the Roomba 530. Tough one. Zoila’s pretty incredible considering she hasn’t spontaneously combusted after five minutes of working with Jeff Lewis, but have you ever seen a Roomba in action? TV doesn’t do its wonders enough justice; I can’t really explain it beyond that. We already know whose side Casey the Dog is on, but let’s put this to an official vote.*
*Woomba, “the little pink robot that cleans your noonie,” is not included as a write-in option because it would obviously win.
