Fried Computer

Unlike last month’s post of the same name, this is actually the recipe for a delicious robot snack.

Do you have friends who think they’re robots? Do you have friends who don’t accept that they’re robots? Well, you’re in luck. What follows is the traditional Cleverpork recipe for Fried Computer, a delicious robot snack.


1 Hard Disk Drive, preferably full of nutritious, not backed-up data

2 1-gigabyte memory cards

1 dual core processor

1 human soul recommended but optional

1 egg

1 cup flour

1 cup water, ice cold

deep fryer with oil

keyboard keys as a garnish, optional


In a bowl, whisk together the egg, flour and water until smooth. Adding a human soul to the batter often adds the kick that robots so desperately desire. Dip the Disk Drive and other computer components fully into the batter and then immediately into the hot oil. Let fry until golden brown and remove.

Serve immediately, or refrigerate and reheat in the oven. Garnish with keyboard keys

You will find that humans will break their teeth on the computer components, so this is a good recipe for proving that your friends are or are not a robot. A disk drive that is not backed up is somehow tastier to robots than a disk drive that is regularly backed up, which is why your hard drive is more likely to break when you aren’t ready for it to.

I made this delicious snack from my good robot pal CRobo (Designation CRobo-0001). Needless to say he was overjoyed at my attempt to break a culture barrier so often overlooked. While the harddrive I used was not top quality, it was both backed up and broken, and I couldn’t obtain a human soul to tie the batter together, he still said that it was scrumptious. Then he proceeded to enslave me and my entire race to be his slaves.
