Juneau-based Alaska Robotics put out its second of six satirical news shorts on the web Tuesday.

Here are some highlights from the latest episode of the Kickstarter-funded series.

  • The cause of the persistent fog that disrupted Juneau flights for more than a week is revealed — flatulence from Alaska Robotics team member Lou Logan.
  • Beth Kerttula, the Democratic representative from Juneau who recently resigned to take a position at Stanford University studying ocean policy, delivers a zinger at BP’s expense.
  • Gov. Sean Parnell’s 28-minute State of the State Address is boiled down to his 25 uses of the word “strong” and its variants.
  • A passive-aggressive correspondent gives an uncomfortable lesson in Alaska Native history to a news anchor desperately trying to find a positive news angle.

Alaska Robotics is a label Pat Race, Aaron Suring and Lou Logan use for their creative projects.
