Despite being smart enough to make extremely powerful battle armor and bring planets across the galaxy to their knees, those sci-fi baddies that look like rolling trash cans with toilet plungers for arms are easily confused, discombobulated even, by the simplest earthly task.
Humans are always doing things that don’t make any sense- they take out the trash instead of zapping it into oblivion with a laser beam, they stuff rotting food products into their mouths and they use bulbs that need changing to light their chambers.
How many of these metal headed monsters does it take to change a light bulb? Two to open the box, one to look on in confusion, and a hundred to yell “EXTERMINATE!” at the top of their lungs until the bulb changes itself!
