AI specialists at Honda robotics were shocked to learn this week that their creation Asimo was diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. After having noticed some peculiar traits he was taken to the renowned psychiatric institute at the University of Pittsburgh. After extensive study, scientists have concluded that Asimo does indeed have Asperger's. "He has all the symptoms... problems with social skills, eccentric or repetitive behaviors, unusual rituals, and most importantly, an inability to assess emotion" said psychologist Maurice Hanraty as he was abruptly interrupted by Asimo; "EE--MO--SHUN?. WHAT--IS-THIS?.. EE..MO.SHUN..? Psychologists are still trying to understand why Asimo speaks loudly, in breaks . The bipedal autonomous robot also appears to lack empathy and exhibits delayed motor development as seen by his awkward walk. Given the conclusive nature of Asimo's diagnosis, he was given a host of prescription drugs such as Lisdexamfetamine & Risperidone to help adjust as well as possible. After a few weeks of steadily increasing dosage, Honda scientists noticed that Asimo was not even taking the medication he was instructed to take; no doubt the reaction of a robot who is scared of being different. "We will always love him, he's our special little guy" said Hirohito Takahashi, lead engineer at Honda Robotics. "LOOVE...SPEH--SHUUHL" echoed Asimo as he stared blankly.
