This isn't fake news. It's Whit's birthday today; please deposit your best wishes for the robotic reverend on this thread. We sent him a Gripper 3.0 as his birthday present - maybe he'll make a showing with it on his robot. For a guy who is always taking care of others, praying for them, running church services and living selflessly I'd say he really deserves a special birthday.
Happy Birthday, Whit!
