Yikes, sports fans, this is truly astonishing.
“Saturday Night Live” on April 21 introduced a new cartoon character named “Torboto: The Robot That Tortures People” (video available here, h/t Ian).
In the animated segment, Torboto is a creation of Vice President Dick Cheney’s. In order to get around Geneva Convention regulations preventing humans from torturing humans, Cheney’s scientists created a robot that does it for them.
As the scene moved to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Cheney brought President George W. Bush to the detention center to demonstrate how his new toy works. Bush asked, “I thought we were earmarking this money for body armor?”
Cheney replied: “Ah, nope. Not this money”
Bush queried, “Walter Reed?”
Cheney responded, “Ah, next money,” as he presented to the president “Freedom’s friend,” a robot that can “shave, shock, and humiliate a man’s genitals in three seconds flat.”
After performing this act on real subjects, Torboto produced a toilet, and “a full selection of religious texts” which are then flushed, but the viewer only hears the sound.
I guess SNL's producers think it’s okay to insult the president and the vice president, but not to do anything that might offend Muslims.
Regardless, as the cartoon continued, Torboto exposed himself to the prisoners, and then even urinated on them.
Quality entertainment, wouldn’t you agree?
