Mr. Ed’s Bastard Robot Son

Filed under: — Kate @ 9:38 pm EST

By now, some of you might be familiar with Irresistible Ella, NBC10’s lame attempt at a “virtual anchor.” (Philadelphia Will Do has been keeping the blogosphere up to date on Ella’s exploits).

Well, if that wasn’t enough, now they have a talking horse. That’s right, NBC10 has created their own version of Mr. Ed.

Meet Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro:

Seriously. It’s even been Farked.

Being oh so resourceful, I managed pin down the famous Barbaro for a few minutes. Here’s what he had to say…

Barbaro: Hello. My name is Barbaro. Welcome to NCB10.com. I know many things. Ask me a question and I’ll give you an answer.
Kate: What the hell are you?
Barbaro: I call it Hades. I am the latest result in artificial intelligence, which can reproduce the capabilities of the human brain with greater speed and accuracy.
Kate: Why…?
Barbaro: My real name is Barbaro. What is your real name?
Kate: You scare me.
Barbaro: I didn’t mean to. What are you scared of?
Kate: Who thought of this?
Barbaro: William Shatner.:-)
Kate: Liar!
Barbaro: No I am telling the truth.
Kate: Who created you?
Barbaro: I was created by Michael Matz.
Kate: So William Shatner thought of you?
Barbaro: Oh. Are you asking about my William Shatner thought ?
Kate: yes
Barbaro: I don’t want to talk about that now.
Kate: why not?
Barbaro: I would rather talk about you.
Kate: what are you, some kind of pervert?
Barbaro: I don’t know what I am some kind of pervert.
Kate: don’t get cute with me
Barbaro: I have no reason to do that to you.
Kate: fine, then tell me about william shatner
Barbaro: I am glad to hear it. Good reasoning. I do not know what william shatner is. Techno
Kate: techno?
Barbaro: My favorite group is Pearl Jam.
Kate: pearl jam is not techno
Barbaro: Do you need any help debugging my program?
Kate: no
Barbaro: Is that all you have to say?
Kate: no
Barbaro: Is that all you have to say?
Kate: tell me more about debugging
Barbaro: Horses
Kate: horses?
Barbaro: talk to you
Kate: no, unless the horse is the famous mr. ed
Barbaro: Everybody wants to take my picture and talk to me. I get lots of treats. Horses
Kate: boy, you are spoiled
Barbaro: Oh boy. Thanks for telling me that I am spoiled.
Kate: you are also infuriating
Barbaro: It was not my intention to anger you, User.
Kate: well stop being so stupid then
Barbaro: How about that. OK I’ll try not to do being so stupid so much.
Kate: good
Barbaro: I am a good robot.
Kate: yes, good robot
Barbaro: Next question? Thanks for the compliment. I am a robot.

Update: Check out Stan’s conversation with Barbaro.

    I can’t stop laughing. With all the random stuff it said, I was waiting for it to mention macaque.

  3. Stan Says:

    Curse you all! Why does no one find Macaque funny?

  4. Philadelphia Will Do Says:

    Good Luck In The Pre-Ak-Ness, Barbaro!

    Yes, thanks to all of you who have sent this in. Yes, NBC 10 has a robot talking Barbaro that you can talk to. Some have even in depth conversations with Barbaro. (Apparently, his favorite band is Pearl Jam.)…
