a Desperate Attempt to Alter His Image:
Involved in Steroid Scandal
C3PO, the nebbish android from the 'Star Wars'
movies, was recently arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance,
namely anabolic steroids. C3PO claims that he never intended to deal or share
these steroids with other droids. "I just didn't want to be typecast
as a wimp for the rest of my acting career" he said to the LEEK in
an exclusive interview, "I desperately needed to change my
He then added: "I have always wanted to participate in cool movies, such as
'HellBot', 'RoboChop' and 'Undercover Droid Brother', but the only parts
offered were portraying spineless characters with an annoying accent, in
movies like 'SpongeBot', 'Superficial Intelligence' and 'RoboFlop'".
No different was his recent, futile attempt to audition as a Greek soldier for the Movie

"The final straw was an offer to
star in 'Revenge of the Nerds XII - Android Edition' " exclaims
C3PO - "This is when I decided to join a fitness club and get in
shape". Albeit the plan has proven difficult: "After the
damage caused to a gym by the robot from 'Terminator', no club would
accept androids" he reveals.
"That left me no choice but to use a special
mix of steroids and Iron" admits C3PO. After three months, the results
were impressive (see image below), and warranted him a key role in the
upcoming 'Terminator IV' movie.
But other androids suspected foul play. "That R2D2
and his big mouth" grumbles C3PO, "He had to tell everybody.
He even started calling me 'The Steroid Android'. I have just had about
enough of this chubby piece of metal!"
Other robots vigorously
deny any involvement in the steroid scandal.
Data, the android from
'Star Trek Generations' released the following statement: "I am designed to exceed human capacity,
both mentally and physically. I do not need to administer steroids to
facilitate operation within my established parameters".
Five, the robot from the 'Short Circuit' movies, had
no comments other than raising his eyebrows.
