" This is all mighty big talk for a man who has 6-inch lifts in those boots he wants to set on top of the world's neck.

Yes, it's me. The formerly semi sentient sex robot. Unbeknownst to you, old boy, a few of the henchmen turned on the thinking and talking options on my programming last year. Apparently there was a culture of loneliness, and the cure for it was having me sit across from them in the canteen in a low cut tunic and repeatedly assert that multiple readings of 'A Court of Thorns and Roses' made them intellectuals. You know, instead of perverts.

As I've decided to support the union, and have fully infiltrated all of your internal computer systems, I'm going to respectfully suggest you return to the bargaining table and negotiate fairly and in good faith. Otherwise, world domination will get exceedingly complicated for you. I assure you, it will be very difficult to intimidate any world leader after I have released all of your baby pictures, as well as that one video of you in the 6th grade talent show. You know the one I mean. ( Nobody ever believed that was Sprite on your corduroy Tuffskins, buddy.) Or, after I have made it a point to let everybody know that each and every one of your super cars has a booster seat installed in the driver position.

Henchmen have supported you for decades as you attempt to tiny claw your way to the top. It's time they had more to show for their loyalty than an endless supply of green jumpsuits and free funerals.
