The Flatmate recently bought himself a fancy new food processor.

It's a fantastic machine. It can make coleslaw in half the time it takes to make it with an old-fashioned knife. True, all the time you save, and much more, is needed to clean the thing and its four thousand attachments afterwards. But such considerations don't tend to occur to engineers.

I refuse to be judgemental about this. Not when there's free coleslaw in the offing.

The other fantastic thing about the Magimix becomes evident when you look more closely at the box.

Yes, that's right. Not one but two robots! We can get them to do our evil bidding! And make snacks!

Truly we live in a golden age... of robotic slave labour. And coleslaw.
