My Computer Doesn’t Like Me

Uh oh. I think my computer is plotting something fiendish.

Uh oh.

It may be time for a new computer.

Wow, Ryan's Roombacan control Paul's Mac. from about 2000 miles way. I think we just figured out where the Roomba was going, it was looking for an Ethernet port to plug into.

It's a pretty sorry plot if the computer is asking for your confirmation.

Well, it's a Mac; it needs to be user-friendly. EVEN WHEN IT WANTS TO EXTERMINATE YOU.

EVEN WHEN IT WANTS TO EXTERMINATE YOU.

i thought it was the macs that were exterminated long ago. speaking of which, did the mac designers ever figure out that you can build a mouse that has more than one button? geez....

Ah, yes, the inevitable Mac slam. Much like the inevitable PC slam, the inevitable Bush slam, the inevitable Clinton slam, followed by... yes... a poetry slam!

I knew there was a reason Macs always made me nervous. Little did I know that they were trying to take over the world. Ever see "The Matrix"? I bet it was Paul's computer that started it all.

Well Kate, now that you mention it, the "Cancel" button in the above graphic is a dead ringer for the blue pill . . .

Now it's time for the obligatory Mac rebuttal. Macs can support mice for other platforms. I have a 2 button, scrolly-wheeled mouse that I use with my mac. $15.

By the way George, did PC makers ever figure out how to make anything Mac-oriented compatible with their computers?

Nah, I think we can stop there. The Mac-PC argument is so old it's crusty.

[ . . . ] followed by... yes... a poetry slam!

"Duh-duh-duh, let the boyz be boyz!"



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
