I contend that the proper pronunciation of "robot" is RO-BOT but a certain someone always insists on using RO-BIT instead.
I agree that RO-BIT is funny but ONLY when used very, very sparingly, and it is never the PROPER pronunciation. When used all the time it becomes obnoxious and loses any chance at being funny.
RO-BOT should be used in every day speech as it is the correct pronunciation!
Clearly those who can pronounce the word correctly are the most informed about the upcoming robot invasion. How can you fight the future when you can't even use the English language properly?
