The AIs don’t even take over a small city, much less the planet. Most of the time they solve problems by doing nothing. There are giraffes but only the AIs can see them.

I should clarify lest this sound too interesting: there aren’t any giraffes. The AIs are just convinced that there are.

And also sometimes the AIs solve problems not by doing nothing, but by falling on their faces

There is no romance because the AIs are hopeless at pickup lines. The title comes from one of the failed pickup lines:

You Look like a Thing and I Love You
