They are named Skippy 1 and Skippy 2.
(Sorry these images are a little too big for the screen. Photobucket has made changes to its site, and I can't access the resize button.)

Time to go to bed.

He's no match for us. Take him down!

I weigh only 6 pounds.

Let's go over and look at those hats.

How do we look?

Jump on kids. We'll give you a ride.

Sorry.

Hey. Can I get some privacy here?

Something's caught.

Stupid toilet paper. Don't just sit there - help me!

We love Willie Nelson.

Do I look like Willie now?

I think Barbi has had a little too much to drink.

Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers.

Those aren't my feet. I don't know whose they are.

They look a lot better in person. Really! I was concentrating on taking the picture, leaning forward, and my toes clawed/gripped-up for balance. Try it. How do yours look?

Unfortunately, Skippy 1 and Skippy 2 had to go back to the MotherShip. They stopped working. (Or maybe they saw my ugly feet and thought, "Let's get the hell out of here!") I bought one for my sister, and hers stopped working as well (Skippy 3.) Before I rounded the three up for return, they sent me a replacement (Skippy 4), and he never worked right out of the box! The iRobot Company gave me some song and dance about the warranties being up and there was nothing they could do about it, soooo I sent a letter to the CEO expressing my great displeasure. I got a phone call saying to send them all back, they paid the postage, and sent four replacements. Skippys 5, 6 , and 7 are red, and Skippy 8 is green. 5 is living with my niece. 6 is with my sister. 7 is with me. Now, 8 isn't working right. He won't charge up, his brushes won't stop spinning, and his rubber flange or strip is half off/unglued. He is going back tomorrow. I feel like a foster mother.

GREEN IS A DYSFUNCTIONAL COLOUR YOU KNOW.

Haha, this is quite hilarious! Though the feet in one of the pics looked quite scary. Are they yours?
