One Potato Review

Thrill to the geometric exuberance of these drawings or set yourself to wondering which is worse: Robomop-basement-bathroom-blues or Robomop-lost-job-blues? The scrubbing device in question is a picture of clunky obsolescence, dinged and melancholic and tripping headfirst into toilets. His inevitable upgrade turns out to be the soulless Bio-Morphic Bellebot Cleanerette, but there’s a human cost here too, “squeegeeing and so forth” being another of the Cleanerette’s skills. So forth? How forth? With a stubbornly cheerful finale, and honky-tonk soundtrack throughout.
