This just in: Wal-Mart not considering using robots

Random robot

We know you all have been concerned that Wal-Mart might be thinking of replacing some of its low-cost red-blooded American workers with even cheaper labor in the form of our robotic overlords, as per rumours they've been consulting with technology firm Frontline Robotics. Wal-Mart PR wants you to know that they are "not looking into robots in any way, shape or form." And that they refuse to say another word about it. Even though we know they're testing a robotic guide for the visually impaired at a store in Utah. There — we certainly feel better, how 'bout you?
