Putin weighs in on robots, sex, and Cthulhu

Robots will be eaten first.

Julia of Sisyphus Shrugged notes that Vladimir Putin took time out of his busy schedule to discuss the issues the Russian people really care about--robots, sex, and Cthulhu.

Putin doesn't remember the first time he had sex, he believes that robots will defend Russia's borders, and he encourages kids to steer clear of Cthulhu...

Asked about the possible awakening of the giant mythical octopus Cthulhu, the fourth-most popular question among the more than 150,000 sent to Putin, he said that he believed something more serious was behind the question. Cthulhu was invented by novelist H.P. Lovecraft and was said to be sleeping beneath the Pacific Ocean.

Putin said he viewed mysterious forces with suspicion and advised those who took them seriously to read the Bible, Koran or other religious books.
