Viking Kitties Laid Off, to be Replaced with Fleet of Drones
4/1/2014 | Admin Moderator

Posted on 04/01/2014 10:16:31 AM PDT by Admin Moderator

The Free Republic moderator staff today announced a major shakeup in the staffing at FR - no longer will the Viking Kitties be called upon to finish off trolls.

"We decided that we should embrace 21st Century Technology instead of just getting all Medieval on trolls" Admin Moderator was quoted as saying. "Yeah, drones aren't cute and cuddly when not frying trolls, but you don't have to scoop the litterbox with drones."

"We did extensive field testing of Chaotic Moon drones on Sidebar Moderator. They worked swimmingly and put Sidebar on the deck every time, although he hasn't quite been his usual self since. With hindsight, maybe 20 80,000 volt tests were a few too many."

Admin Moderator expects the first live use of drones to happen within a few days.

How about you guys program some drones to deliver popcorn to the rest of us to enhance our zot experience?

This change will probably have the same effect on the numbers of monthly contributors to FR.

About darn time FR got into the 21st century. While you are at it, how about equipping all trolls with micro chips when they register so they can be cut off if a confrontation occurs?

That’s apropos, considering a significant number of trolls tend to drone.

Here is someplace where you can test the drone’s recon abilities.

Just a test of course.

And just what do you think will happen when SkyNet - and it's drones - becomes "self-aware"?

You're helping to usher in the Terminator, if I may be so BOLD.....

May I have an upgrade to the standard n00b beeber that I was issued when I signed up? This model beeber doesn’t have a setting for drones. :(

Pretty please?

I am concerned about retribution from the Viking Kitties. Will they remain loyal? Will they want revenge?

Remember what Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke) said in Iron Man 2: “Drone, better.” And for those that have seen the movie, that didn’t work out too well.

Can’t you have kitties operate the remote on the drones?

If not...oh well, never cared much for cats anyway.

With that settled...can we drone a cat? Just for practice mind you.
