A marathon takes a wrong turn, and a phone accidentally dictates an unusual tweet. Robot Pizza Van is your source for all the news that is funny or weird.

During a marathon the runners who were in the lead took a wrong turn. In the meantime some other guy wins the race. Then Rygar tells us about the time he ran in a marathon and was hit in the back of the head with a tortilla. That’s why I won’t run in any footrace.

A woman is dictating a tweet about a news article she had just read. In the middle of the tweet a friend came to her house so she paused the tweet. Little did she know that the twitter machine had not paused but in fact had continued to dictate everything that she said to her friend and broadcast that out. Can you imagine the kind of private things that might have been revealed? Imagine no more. We have the actual tweet and it will be read live, on the air. This is nothing like Al Capone’s vault. I am sure that there are words inside this tweet.

We look at useless websites and spirulina really is a super food. Super cool!

Ninja Shortage: Episode 14

Borg and Offroad discover a ninja shortage in Japan. There’s a huge tourist demand but there aren’t enough Ninjas in supply. Maybe it’s not a shortage, maybe they’re really good at Ninja-ing and no one can find them. We also learn about the dangers of clowning, mimes, robot dancers, Bozo of the clowns and SantaCon- where thousands of drunk guys do a Santa-clad pub-crawl. The remake of Stephen King’s “It” is scheduled for September 8th, 2017 which may explain some of the uptake in creepy clown sightings.

Then, 3d printed buildings. A big 3D printer drives around and can print a 50 foot dome building in 14 hours. Separately, a solar powered 3D printer that melts sand into glass sculpture. The solar printer is in the desert using the sun and the sand. Hey we should send some of these things to mars to build houses. And finally, police question a ventriloquist about what his dummy allegedly said.

Prosecco Nail Polish and an Asteroid City Skyline: Episode 10

Aaaaaah… the self-deprecating nineties. Well even if you weren’t alive yet you can still remember them, indirectly through sales-based nostalgia. We remember some of the things from the nineties like that song by Enigma that was in Tropic Thunder, and we couldn’t remember at the time but it was Suzanne Vega and her song 99.9F°. Elbows or knees? The truth or lies? We make some tough choices and we learn a little about ourselves along the way. For example, hats and the shiny stickers on the rim of said hats.

The first news story; Prosecco nail polish, the first edible nail polish… lick-able nail polish, it’s not edible, I learned the hard way. This product is somehow associated by Groupon and so there is the associated prestige and sophistication.
The second story is a Skyscraper that hangs from an earth-orbiting asteroid. Look out to the horizon and see the skyscraper hanging down from above… as it slowly drifts by. It would be like an upside-down city skyline. What if you had both the regular skyline and this upside-down skyline?
The third news story is about a $25,000 prize for the smelliest sneaker. There are different factors that are used to judge this contest. I don’t think they used any scientific instruments but instead rely on a judge’s subjective ‘judgment’. I could criticize the judge but I think he’s been through enough. We also learn some of the techniques that the contestants used to develop the shoe’s smell.

Self Driving Cars and Sinister Smart Devices: Episode 9

Rygar and Borg take a turn reading the news stories, we’ll see how they like the pressure! The first story is about a ‘smart garage’ owner who complained about his “garadget” smart device, so the company had it disabled.

The second story is about an invention for self-driving cars: ‘pedestrian flypaper’ mounted on the hood of the car. This way if the car hits someone, they’ll stick! Besides this we touch upon yoga, deserted boats in the bay, Uber and someone touches upon something hot and burns their finger.

Edible Water And Sneaker Laces: Episode 8

This week we examine edible water bubbles. We don’t eat or drink any, we just examine… the idea. We’re also talking about a Harvard study on the physics behind why shoelaces come untied… and the shoes that love them.

Along the way, tales are told of Fruitarians, Breatharians, plant EKGs, Ents and Entwives, the British version of Kickstarter, Boba tea, kale(again), and we watch an advertisement(?) for Joan’s barbecue and foot massage.

Pencil Fights and Cat Bells: Episode 7

Remember childhood pencil fights? What’s up with Paper boys, papergirls… paper-people? And Bazooka Joe, has he ever had a bazooka? A lot of questions but don’t worry, they are rhetorical.

Then Rygar, Borg, and Offroad talk about the most expensive potato chips, a so-called ‘thief’ who accidentally warns his victim, UPS truck habits, and listen as we watch Colbert watch ‘Hi Stranger’…… and while you’re at it listen to us watching a video of two cats that ring bells with their cute little paws for treats.

Doggy Drones and Solar Sails: Episode 6

Clouds that rain tequila, cheating in school, dog drones, and mysterious lights in the sky. These are the days of our lives, … these are the days of someone’s life. But for us, these are the topics of discussions.

Rygar, Borg and Offroad talk about an art-installation cloud that ‘rains’ tequila, a complicated 2-drone solution to the dog poop crisis, and a Harvard study suggesting aliens may be hard at work in another galaxy.

But before that, they answer a few computer-generated questions which lead to some inadvertent tips on cheating in school, and a few conversational tangents, which themselves lead to more tangents. It’s like holding a mirror up to another mirror, and gazing into the infinite reflections of the internet.

Rygar relates a harrowing snowboard adventure, we hear of a man who swallowed a light bulb only to have it removed ten years later, and …….. have you heard of Burning Man? So has everyone else.

This week we learn that NASA has invested in 3D printed pizzas for Mars missions, Borg reads some unintentionally funny headlines, and Sting is the King of the Mods(in Quadrophenia). Then we react to the wild turkey video and the Uber CEO vs Uber Driver argument video.

Finally, if a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear, does it bother to make a sound?

Zombie Buddhist Goat Ghosts: Episode 3

Our first article is about a Viking funeral for a goldfish. This leads to talk of Tibetan funerals and of course, zombie Buddhist goat ghosts. The second article is about the most expensive taco in the… news, a twenty-five thousand dollar taco. Yum? Then some ASMR treats(not really), StockX – the stock market for sneakers, Back to the Future shoes, and the dangers of Velcro.

The final article is about Pizza Hut’s limited edition, IOT shoes that can order a pizza while you tap your toes. They’re being released for March Madness to ‘Influencers’ so we are expecting a pair for Robot Pizza Van in the mail any day now.

We’re talking condiments with a focus on horseradish, pulled pork with pickles and up-cycled organic baby carrots. What is the proper cellphone etiquette on the BART? Is a human hamster water feeder an ASMR treat or a slurping nightmare? The Selfie Drone, hmmmmmm…..  Cannibal hamsters in France. More Google Home Easter Eggs. The origin of the word dude.

Today we present the musical preferences of dogs, umbrella drones, and a recipe for eating wild snails. Borg tells us about the pirates of Mallory Square and their dance parties. Rygar plays some Leonard Nimoy and his Ballad of Bilbo Baggins and Google Home makes a cameo appearance.

Then, mantra magic and AI based startups. Chemistry class and arranged prom dates. Shady limos and Bell Biv Divoe’s extended remix. All of this and many more incomplete sentences.
