i could not help but noticing
all these robots fucking
in the middle of the mini mall
robots fucking
in the middle of the mini mall
robots fucking
in the middle of the carwash
robots fucking
in the middle of citcom
forbots fucking
in the middle of the west wing
robots fucking
in the middle of the whitehouse
robots fucking
in the middle of the subway
robots fucking
in the middle of the J-Z Video
Robots fucking
in the middle of a telecast with
Tom Brokaw announcing his love for puppies

Pictures of Oprah Winfrey fucking robots, f
or sale on E-Bay
10 dollars
20 dollars
30 dollars
sold to the highest quitter

    General CommentWith the exception of the carwash, all the places the robots are fucking are clearly tied to mass media or consumerism; although the carwash is not necessarily inconsistent.
    I think this song is about the way that sex is commodified by consumer culture. Sex, as human beings experience it, is about pleasure, love, and procreation, all of which are outside the ambit of a robotic existence. While sex sells, the commodification of sex takes all the fun and the meaning out of it - sex is of no use to robots, and the sex we buy into in the commercial marketplace lacks any of the elements that make sex worthwhile. The impersonal vocorder "vocals" on this song make it a piece of meta-art, showing media depersonalization of sex by the example of a depersonalized song about fucking. Is there anything genuinely sexy in the song? Is anyone actually aroused?
    My feeling is that this song is a way of pointing out the absurdity of the sexualization of marketing by associating it with robot fucking - an act of pseudo sex more desperate, pointless and impersonal than masturbation. In essence, buying into the culture that sexualizes consumerism makes us into fucking robots.
