Japanese Professor Builds Humanoid Robot to Kill Wasps

Google Translate isn't doing too well, but I gather that a Japanese professor named Sekine was tired of getting stung by wasps in his laboratory. So he designed and built a mohawk-wearing fembot to climb a ladder and whack the wasps.

What a bad translation. It's not to swat (bzzzzzzt) wasps, but to swat W.A.S.P.'s (White Anglo-Saxon Protestant's). The lab dude was tired of all the WASP's coming into his lab and inciting individual thinking and promoting creative ideas. Getting his idea for the "rad" fembot attractor from the 80's brandy bunch - he thought for sure the super sweet mohawk would be a surefire lure.

It is to train wasps! He just hates mohawks. So the robot gets up there, pisses the wasps off, and over time the wasps develop a sting on sight mentality towards anyone with a mohawk.
