Aptly Sad Analogies for the Death of Hitchbot

Illustration for article titled Aptly Sad Analogies for the Death of Hitchbot

Hitchbot, a whimsical social experiment designed to see how long a floppy robot could travel cross country, fueled only by the kindness of strangers was beaten and decapitated this week. Proving that no amount of Upworthy Internet content can scrub the dark char of the human heart. The death of Hithbot is like:

— the Red Balloon that the French street children popped because it brought joy to another child.


—Piggy’s glasses.


—Johnny 5 when he gets beaten up by Los Locos

—Treblinka??? I don’t know.

In the words of Tony Soprano, “truth be told, there’s enough garbage for everybody.”


We’re all detritus.
