I recall, many moons ago, looking at the new fangled 'home computers' in a branch of Currys (other IT retailers also available, as are other foreign foods) and happily chomping on a piece of fruit.

A salesman asked "Have you got an Apple Mac?"

"No," I replied, "I've got a Conference Pear buddy."

Oh yes, I well remember my first computer, I still have it to this day, look:


Sometimes the beads would fall off the top rail resulting in my issuing forth with expetives. Yes, I would ab a cus then start over again.


My anesthesiologist's computer has an ethernet connection.


Presumably, he has no trouble putting it into 'sleep mode'.

The bargain store promised me a free abacus with every purchase, but I wouldn't count on it.

No trouble with 'sleep mode', that is correct.

But I just can't bear it when the computer 'hibernates'!

I hope you don't feel shut down by my remarks.

Chem, after burning a cookie that I made for you, I felt very crummy.

And this reminds me of the times when I used to talk to her about computer hardware, I made my mother board.

Ah well, that's the way the cookie crumbles.

...........I made my mother board.


That's nothing, I've spent my hole life boring people, you know the drill...... "Blah blah blah blah rabbit rabbit blah horizon horizon blah blah drone......" And after all that, I'd go on a bit more.

I know what you mean, Don. It reminds me of a carpenter friend who sat on his drill and was bored to tears.

And I've been to the dentist several times, so, yes, I certainly know the drill.

At the scene of the crime, my dentist's alibi was so full of holes, the police performed a cavity search.

A narsety one!

Ever see a dentist and manicurist fighting tooth and nail?

Today, January 27, 2012 is the last day of:
No Name-Calling Week
http://www.nonamecallingweek.org/cgi-bin/iowa/home.html

Words can hurt, both spoken, and also in writing.

For example, an insulting telegram is a barbed wire.

If I were to plagiarise the above and try to sell it here, would that be a fence post?

Well, aside from scratching your less than hirsute pate in puzzlement, you offer polite comments on their probable abilities, proffer advice on to the best seating position and how best to achieve it, and of course, advice on determining who are their ancestors.

I do find it puzzling that I am often unable to pun effectively, perhaps that is a punnishment meted out to me by the fickle fingers of fate, or I am eternally powerless to puntificate effectively.

No. That would be instead a major offence, I think!
