I once worked as a Test Engineer at an android factory.
We’d been struggling to debug a new product line, a female pleasure-housekeeping model. The units met almost all the design specs, rating particularly high on the obedience scale–but they consistently failed the housekeeping tests. They all had a irrational fear of vacuum cleaners.
Turned out that some idiot Design Engineer had specified the integration of select brain functions from the Canis lupus familiaris species–the domestic dog–to boost the model’s obedience index.
We finally fixed it–although the final product could be a bit balky at times.
Author’s Note: Lest anyone question it, idiotic Design Engineers are quite common. Take it from me.
