I need a good (could be funny or not) acronym for MARVIN. MARVIN is a maintenance robot aboard a spaceship.


Proper Credit will be given in the Ship's Log.

Or If you can come up with a different one that is catchy -other than MARVIN. (And no, I didn't choose MARVIN because of Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy- My kids were watching cartoons and Marvin Martian happened to be on the screen at the time.)

I can picture the Hitchhiker's MARVIN now - "hullo, I suppose you'd like me to fetch you some sort of beverage, I mean, why not, it’s not like I have anything better to do…"

:p

"Don't pretend you want to talk to me, I know you hate me."

"No I don't."

"Yes, you do, everybody does. It's part of the shape of the Universe.
I only have to talk to somebody, and they begin to hate me. Even robots
hate me. If you just ignore me, I expect I shall probably go away."
He jacked himself up to his feet and stood resolutely facing the opposite
direction.

"That ship hated me, " he said dejectedly, indicating the police craft.

"That ship?" said Ford in sudden excitement. "What happened to it?
Do you know?"

"It hated me because I talked to it."

"You TALKED to it?" exclaimed Ford. "What do you mean you talked to it?"

"Simple. I got very bored and depressed, so I went and plugged myself
into it's external computer feed. I talked to the computer at great length,
and explained my view of the universe to it, " said Marvin.

"And what happened? " pressed Ford.

"It committed suicide, " said Marvin, and stalked off back to the
Heart of Gold.

Ok, MARVIN is out. Don't want to ruin the robot from HGTTG.

How does DARWIN (Detached ADRIFT Robot With Internal Navigation) sound?


Heh, Poodle. I didn't notice before- very funny.
