Is Bush REALLY an animatronic robot?

Is Bush REALLY an animatronic robot? Or are these photos implying something else? Like maybe a few journalists/photographers took a few shortcuts? In any case, the article gave me a good laugh.

Maybe he is some form of evolved Furby?

Now that the meme's established, you just know that snappers will try to get pics of Bush in that pose, and that picture editors will gladly act as co-conspirators...

Anyone found a link for all of the pictures mentioned in the article?

Dude...... That's not a robot. That boy is stoned. He's chillin with the wacky weed.

Bush isn't really an animatronic robot. He only plays one on TV.

He still looks more lifelike than AG2K. Besides, whoever programmed Shrub did a lot better job than the team who built the Gorebot. When they constructed Bush's memories, they kept them as simple as possible. Team AG2K implanted their candidate with too many conflicting memories.

jjg, that's brilliant. I love the "Bush looks on" captions, as well: from my perspective, he looks more like he's on standby.

Ok, I'm personally finding this really creepy
