Contrast this robot with the one in the hopper being used to suture a grape.
I still, to this day, am utterly dumbfounded at how anyone at Lucasfilm thought Jar Jar was a good idea. I mean, if you want a crystal clear example of the kind of un-challenging, yes-men that Lucas was surrounded with while making the prequels, Jar Jar is it.
The prequels were going to be dark. Assuming that all 3 had been written, or that the core audience (including kids) knows what happens to this kid, a "lovable" marketable "friend" for Anakin probably seemed like a good investment for toy sales alone. If you haven't already, watch The Phantom Edit, which cuts out Jar Jar (almost) completely and makes other changes. Episode 1 is probably the darkest of all 6 because it's just happening to an innocent kid. Plus nobody wants to buy Liam Neeson toys.

The only thing in the whole prequel trilogy I liked was the scene where Jar-Jar is using his tongue lizard-style to snatch food off the table and Qui Gon Jinn (Liam Neeson) grabs the tongue in midair and in his best menacing growly voice says, "Don't do that again."
That should have happened more often.

You can't smash mortality with a pair of hammers, Ashens.
Maybe if you didn't have it sitting on an overstuffed, soft couch that acts as a perfect shock absorber?
