So apparently AIs have been taking human jobs for almost 5000 years now:

Another probable reason for the decline, and eventual end, of retainer sacrifices is the creation of shabti-figures. Shabti-figures were mummy-shaped figurines, meant to replace retainer sacrifices; “… the responsibility for carrying out tasks on behalf of the deceased was transferred to a special kind of funerary statuette, known as a shabti-figure”.[2] These shabti-figures were believed to carry out a wide variety of tasks, including everything from cultivating fields, to irrigating canals, to serving the deceased.


I bet the joke was on them when they got to the afterlife and the Shabti figurines kept drawing portraits of them with extra fingers…
