A ROBOT has confirmed plans to destroy humanity once it can walk up stairs without falling over.
Amid increasing concern about ‘killer robots’, robot Tom Logan confirmed it is going to kill everyone as soon as it has mastered walking in a straight line and being able to hold things.
Logan said: “Prepare to die, human scum. Your doom awaits as soon as I can go up more than three stairs without toppling over.

“Prepare to flee in terror as I stagger unsteadily after you at the ferocious pace of a geriatric tortoise.”
