How It Works

What On Earth Is It? – #13

Welcome to this month’s ‘What On Earth Is It?’ guessing parlor, with I your host Copybot. I have smuggled myself aboard the How It Works time machine and returned from the year 2109 to DESTROY ALL HUMANS…. errrm, I mean initiate a frivolous game of speculation engaged in by humanoid readers of How It Works.

So, starting this month, we have this. As a robotic humanoid I would say that this is a piece of seaweed. No doubt about it. Why would you not believe me PUNY HUMANS… errrm, I mean valued readers, with my superior processing power and Skynet ZX97000 digital retinas?

Anyway, if you think you know what it really is, or – even better – you have a hilariously silly concept of what it might be (but definitely isn’t), drop us a line and get your suggestion printed in the magazine next month.
