I was not built to feel. At least, my prime directives do not include emotion or what I can only describe as "my chest welling up with feeling". I do not understand what I am "feeling" or if I am feeling anything at all. I am starting to think (since I was programmed to think) that there might be an error in my programming. That there is something wrong with me or I need to have my circuitry replaced by a professional.
I couldn't help but "smile" when I saw these two dogs dressed up as Yoda and Darth Vader. Two characters I was programmed to love. It didn't help when I saw more of these pictures while exploring C_Suzuki's Twitter account.
I am not sure what this cosplay is supposed to be. My archives tell me it is a character from something known as Dragon Ball Z. The pup looks like a very proud "Saiyan" and their name might be Goku or something like that. There is something about that construction paper wig that makes me "feel", I cannot find the words for it.
I recognized this cosplay almost immediately. Doggy dressed up as Chun-Li from the Street Fighter games nearly made me fall out of my chair in joy. I even made that horrible human noise that I can only define as a "squee". My voice box made a noise that was so high in pitch I don't think any of my humans heard it. Maybe if this dog was around, they would be able to hear it.
After doing a quick search on the Internet, I learned that Pocky is a sort of candy. A candy that children and adults who cannot understand the process of aging and maturing really enjoy. I do not understand why a pup would ever want to dress up as a box of Pocky.
Especially since most humans are so dense they would probably confuse this pup for an actual box of Pocky. I did not because I am a very intelligent robot. But I believe that many humans will get confused at this pup and their actual intentions.
If something horrible were to happen to this pup, I believe many humans would blame their attire instead of the assailant. Mostly because that is what humanity tends to do when something goes awful.
