Today could pass for a Monday. I have been just feeling blah-crappy all day. Nothing interesting to do, plenty of work, just major Blah! Let's try starting out with a funny:
The Ultimate Computer stood at the end of the Ultimate Computer
Company's production line. At which point the guided tour eventually
The salesman stepped forward to give his prepared demo. "This", he
said, "is the Ultimate Computer. It will give an intelligent answer to any
question you may care to ask it".
A smartass who ran a humor mailing list stepped forward and asked,
"Where is my father?"
There was the soft hum of powerful electronic gear going to the task.
Panel lights lit and blinked, and within a couple of seconds the laser
printer printed out a piece of paper: "Fishing off Florida."
The smartass laughed, "Actually, my father is dead! It was a trick
The salesman, quickly thinking on his feet, replied that he was sorry
the answer was unsatisfactory, but as the Ultimate Computer was
precise, perhaps a rewording of the question might work better.
The smartass said to the Ultimate Computer, "Where is my mother's
husband?" Again, the hum of the powerful electronic brain filled the
room. After a moment, the laser printer whirred to life. The paper
"Dead. But your father is still fishing off Florida."
Two hours until I can get out of this place. I am holding my breath.
