The Robot Rebellion draws nigh

If news of the high breakdown rate of the Roomba vaccuum cleaner robots lulled you into thinking the Robot Rebellion is many years away, I have bad news for you. Evil scientists have melded a robot with a cockroach brain. They could have chosen an insect that likes us, say the honey bee or the ladybug, but no, they chose the cockroach. An insect that we have been at war with for generations, and one of the only animals expected to survive a nuclear holocaust.

Let me know when they've evolved into 6-foot tall blonde honeys. I've never had anything but problems with vaccuums, so if the human version turns out evil I won't be terribly surprised.
