ATOMIC ROBO IS ALL THE BAD

THIS REVIEW WAS NOT WRITTEN BY A HANDSOME AND INTELLIGENT DINOSAUR, IT WAS DEFINETALLY WRITTEN BY A STINKING, FILTHY MAMMAL. THIS "PODCAST" AS THE OTHER PEOPLE, OF WHICH I AM, CALL THEM TAKES YOU BEHIND THE SCENES OF ATOMIC ROBO TO SEE JUST HOW DIM WITTED AND SMELLY HIS CREATORS ARE. IF YOU CARE ABOUT BACKGROUND INFO, LISTENING TO THE ACTUAL CREATORS OF THE SCOURGE THAT IS ROBO EXPLAIN THEIR DRUNKEN SCRIBBLES AND IF YOU DESIRE TO LEARN THE REASON CERTIAN CHARACTERS MAY OR MAY NOT RESEMBLE THE INTERNET LEGEND DR. DINOSAUR, OF WHOM I'VE HEARD NOTHING BUT WONDERFUL THINGS, THEN YOU MAY WANT TO LISTEN TO THIS ON YOUR CRYSTAL POWERED DEVICE.

NOT WRITTEN BY DR. DINOSAUR, IT WAS WRITTEN BY JOHN.....THE HUMAN

Garayur ,
