‘Serve the public tea. Protect the coffee break. Upend the biscuit.’ Ladies and gentlemen, we’re proud to introduce the future of tea making technology: RoboCup.
Ok, so this generous ceramic vessel isn’t concealing a gun in its handle. It can’t dispense its own future-dystopian brand of tough justice. But that steely mush will be sure to put a smile on the face of any 80s actionaut – and fan of the original blockbusting movie.
That’s right. The original movie. Not the 2014 one. Although the new one is quite good… But does it have the satirical heft of the first? Fire up the kettle and discuss.
You have twenty seconds to comply.
