The Week contest: Robo vac
This week's question: A North Carolina couple called the cops and cowered in a closet after hearing what they thought was a burglar in their home; it turned out the "intruder" was just their robot vacuum cleaner, which had gotten stuck and was banging against a wall. If Hollywood were to make a movie about a robo-vacuum cleaner that actually turns to crime, what title could it give the film?
