Ooh, do you have that feeling? That feeling that there's a new superstar making her debutante voyage into a beautiful world? Look how adorable! His name is Dmitry and he wants to shake your hand! He is just tiny and adorable and you just want to put a bonnet on his head and put him on the mantelpiece next to the Lladro.
But there's something else. Have you caught on yet? Note the sly look of amused recognition in Condi's eyes:
That's right! Condi knows an Animagic robot when she sees one! And, honestly, the Dmitrybot is charming, but not terribly lifelike. A for effort for Mr. Putin, and I'm sure the Dmitrybot will be a dependable, if somewhat cloying, servant. This Disneytronic "president" isn't as sophisticated as the celebrated Condibot, and I'm wondering if maybe, indeed, the Dmitrybot might be constructed using outdated Condibot technology from the early stages of its development.
But, hee hee hee! Yay! Look at Condi with the tinies:
Ha ha, Condi looks like Satan in that picture!
