The Annual Stupid Robot Contest in (Where Else?) Japan

Gotta love Japan! Every year, Maiwa Electronics hosts The Stupid Robot Contest to determine whose robot is the silliest.

The contest rules are simple (and brilliant!):

1. It must be mechanical
2. It must be completely useless from a societal point of view
3. It must make people laugh

From Tokyomango:

Pictured above is Papa Robopucho, a disfigured little box bot that plays the red-flag-white-flag game by himself, and then occasionally topples over and cries for help.

Some of the other contestants last year were a chorus of pregnant wife robots, a child robot that did push-ups, and and a "moe" robot dressed like a maid from a maid cafe.

Is this where the device that's only purpose was to make the hand shut itself off (I think it's name was "Don't bother me") came from?
