The Washington Post reports a googly-eyed robot named Marty is now roaming the Stop & Shop in Seekonk, reporting spills and other problems - via a control center in the Philippines - at least until somebody knocks Mr. Smartypants over in a fit of rage or it kills itself like that robot in DC because people keep calling it Mahty or because it quickly despairs of its spending its life searching for fallen price signs.
