Roomba: I Fought the Paw and the Paw Won

Illustration for article titled Roomba: I Fought the Paw and the Paw Won

The electric vacuum cleaner has been terrorizing dogs for nearly a century. But one dog in Texas has stood up to the latest edition of this horrifying menace. Or, more appropriately, lied down to it.

The heroic dog, known as Gauge, was minding his own business when the Roomba decided to attack. Unfazed, Gauge stood his ground on the kitchen floor, refusing to move no matter how ruff the machine got.


Try as it might, the Roomba continued to hound Gauge, working every possible angle to achieve robo-domination. But the Roomba was no match for Gauge, who valiantly maintained his alpha pawsition.

Gauge emerged unscathed and lived to tell the tail. Though I’m sure this isn’t the last we’ll hear of the Roomba, which turned out to be all bark and no byte.
