There are a lot of great fake entertainments in our favorite pop culture, but few are as fascinating to my mind as Robots Versus Wrestlers, a running gag in ‘How I Met Your Mother.’  Even better, later episodes promised the Legends version, with elderly wrestlers fighting old-timey robots in a wheelchair-accessible ring.  Sure, on some level it seems cruel, but if you’ve ever seen El Santo fighting robot assassins and/or los vampiros mujeres, you know that the wrestlers bring a lot to the table, leading to today’s top-of-the-card query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is gonna cram a Timbit into a strawberry-vanilla and enjoy the show, but my money’s on the luchadors, asking: In a battle of Robots Versus Wrestlers, who will you put your money on: A robot or a wrestler?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
