Added DiffLines:

* EverythingIsAnIPodInTheFuture: Ten years after the yogurt took over, just before it takes off.

* SyntheticVoiceActor: The yogurt once brought to life utilizes both male and female text-to-speech voices [[VoiceOfTheLegion overlapping one another.another]].

Added DiffLines:

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The yogurt is of course a stand-in for artificial intelligences and how they can render humans an irrelevance and hijack our civilisation if we are not careful.

Added DiffLines:

* BloodyHilarious: The economic devastation caused when the President diverges from the yogurt's plan shows a situation so desperate that we see someone making soup out of a baby ''within six months.'' This is PlayedForLaughs, of course.
* LighterAndSofter: This short is much brighter in both visual style and tone than any of the other shorts, and is one of the most comedic in its storyline.


* BatmanGambit: The yogurt gave the president a budget that would eliminate the national budget in a year, in exchange for Ohio, under the condition that the budget be followed to the letter. Any changes would collapse the economy. Congress ignored the warning and the economy collapsed, allowing the yogurt to talk the president into signing over all authority to the yogurt. The narrator ponders that the yogurt, being smart enough to make such a budget, would also have predicted Congress would screw it up.
