Yesterday, we told you about MythBuster and MAKE pal Grant Imahara and the skeleton “robot” he was building for Craig Ferguson. Here he is with the robo-puppet, inexplicably named Geoff Peterson, on the Late Late Show.

    Trying to figure out how you guys know the robot’s name is spelled “Geoff”and not “Jeff”. You must feel that “Geoff” looks a little more likely to come from across the pond even though he was “made”in california.
    i like to use quotation marks a little too much!

    It’s spelled “Geoff” on the Late Late Show’s website.

      Fair enough.
      I guess the Ferguson team likes the “European” spelling of “Jeff” better. There I go with the quotation marks again…sorry.
