    A man enters a bar and orders a drink. The bar has a robot bartender, the robot serves him a pint and then asks him 'whats your IQ?' The man replies '150 why?'. The robot proceeds to discuss global warming, quantum physics, theology and environmental issues. The customer is very impressed and thinks this is really cool. He decides to test the robot and orders another pint. The robot proceeds to serve him a pint and asks him his IQ, the man then says 100, so the robot talks about sport, women, breasts, fast food and fast cars.
