Where they instant grits?
 
2014-02-06 08:15:53 AM
I thought the Geneva Conventions had rules about that sort of thing.
 
2014-02-06 08:51:56 AM
I read that as "hot girls" at first.

NO selfrespecting southerner, wait.
that's an oxymoron.

Oh good, I feel better now that I wasn't the only one.  Clicking that link was a major disappointment.

Are we to believe that boiling water soaks into a grit faster in your kitchen than any place on the face of the earth?

There's a crack about "lumps" in here somewhere but I'm really off my game today.  Lousy cold.

I was believing the article was real until I got to the part where the auto shop said they used the drone to remotely fix a cars transmission, not just to deliver the parts.

Blah, stupid satire?? I don't even know what to call this.

Same here.

I immediatly thought of this
static4.wikia.nocookie.net
static3.wikia.nocookie.net

But then if they are delivering girls, the drone wouldn't be unmanned, would it.
Well maybe it would be unmanned, but not unpersoned.

Perhaps the laws of physics cease to exist on his stove. Maybe they were magic grits.  Maybe he bought them from the same guy who sold Jack his beanstalk beans.
 
2014-02-06 09:51:55 AM
Do these drones have "bomb-doors" so they can drop the grits into the gaping maws of the customers?
It's a long walk from my deck chair in the backyard to the front door.

unmanned drone

redundant headline is redundant

I think this may be a satirical article, there Edith.

How long until the FAA shuts them down.

They shut down this guy for delivering beer to ice fishers via drone:

These "drone delivery" articles that keep popping up are just a way for companies to get some free publicity.

Retail drone-delivery is not a thing.  It is not going to be a thing for a very-long-time.

I can see drone-delivery being used on the battlefield to send supplies around, but basic retail?  No one will want to insure it.

You'll have every idiot and his brother ramming their heads in to them to get grounds for a lawsuit.

This is bad grammar. The correct Southern grammar is "Where them grits at?"

Kinston? Check.

Kinston, home of Jamie Pressley and Maceo Parker. What a strange town . . .

Oh, big deal. Eunuchs have been delivering hot girls for thousands of years. Assuming that is what you mean by "unmanned drones". If not, then a lot of eunuchs are out of a job unless they can sing.

Came for Natalie Portman. As always, leaving satisfied.
 
2014-02-06 10:23:55 AM
Local newspaper columnist, you are really terrible at writing satirical fake news stories. I mean, just godawful. Spelling the aerospace company's name "Locheed Marton" doesn't make it funny.

Arkanaut: unmanned drone

redundant headline is redundant


During testing of the L-3 Mobius they have had a human pilot on board in case the AI goes blue screen...

/I may have just said too much about someone else's project...
//Never on their non-disclose.

So did I and I was bummed because I thought someone else had already come up with my idea for a Hooters type of company, but they deliver food.

Isn't "unmanned drone" redundant? Are there manned drones?

Nothing's more satisfying than hot grits in your pants. Unless it's oatmeal.

They probably specify that the grits must have real butter in them, nothing else

I saw this on the TV news, too.  Pretty cool...

I did too.. I wonder if the headline was changed?
 
2014-02-06 10:55:57 AM
Okay, I was just skimming, but by the second page it was obvious that the entire thing was a put on.

The question is: Is this satire? It doesn't seem to be making a point about anything, I mean other than the overly ebullient quotes from the fictional store owners, none of these things are really all that out of the ordinary.

It's mocking 'dem big city technology persons.

Seriously, WTF? That really, really sucks, even by small town newspaper standards.

\From NC
\\Grits can be good.

Please tell us all the different ways in which you misread the headline.
It's really interesting.

Southerners always be eating the grits because down south, grits is polenta-ful.

I just remembered that publicity gimmicks can be tax deductible ways to buy toys using your business accounts.

Our delivery drones don't just accept tips, they forcibly take them directly from you hand with their blades..
