Limerick evaluation of Hitachi’s jokester robot

Limerick laureate Martin Eiger evaluates a technology news item (“Hitachi Unveils Robot With a Sense of Humour“—AFP):

It tells its own jokes, they conclude.
I’m a little bit vexed
About what they’ll make next.
If it writes its own limericks, I’m screwed.
