A friend sent this to me. Though you might enjoy it.

ABBOT: Super Duper Computer Store... Can I help you?
COSTELLO: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den, and I'm
thinking about buying a computer.
COSTELLO: No, the name's Lou
ABBOT: Your computer?
COSTELLO: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.
COSTELLO: I told you, my name's Lou
ABBOT: What about Windows?
COSTELLO: Why? Will it get stuffy in here?
ABBOT: Do you want a computer with Windows?
COSTELLO: I don't know. What will I see when I look in the windows?
ABBOT: Wallpaper.
COSTELLO: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.
ABBOT: Software for Windows?
COSTELLO: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to write
proposals, track expenses and run my business. What have
you got?
ABBOT: Office.
COSTELLO: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?
ABBOT: I just did.
COSTELLO: You just did what?
ABBOT: Recommend something.
COSTELLO: You recommended something?
COSTELLO: For my office?
COSTELLO: OK, what did you recommend for my office?
ABBOT: Office.
COSTELLO: Yes, for my office!
ABBOT: I recommend office with windows.
COSTELLO: I already have an office and it has windows! OK, let's just
say, I'm sitting at my computer and I want to type a
What do I need?
ABBOT: word.
COSTELLO: what word?
ABBOT: word in office.
COSTELLO: the only word in office is office.
ABBOT: the word in office for windows.
COSTELLO: which word in office for windows?
ABBOT: the word you get when you click the blue w
COSTELLO: I'm going to click your blue w if you don't start with some
straight answers. OK, forget that. Can I watch movies on
ABBOT: yes, you want real one.
COSTELLO: maybe a real one, maybe a cartoon. What I watch is none of
your business. Just tell me what I need!
ABBOT: real one.
COSTELLO: if it's a long movie I also want to see reel 2,3&4. Can I
watch them?
ABBOT: of course.
COSTELLO: great, with what?
ABBOT: real one.
COSTELLO: OK, I'm at my computer and I want to watch a movie. What do
I do?
ABBOT: you click the blue 1
COSTELLO: I click the blue one what?
ABBOT: the blue 1.
COSTELLO: is that different from the blue w?
ABBOT: the blue 1 is Realone and the blue w is word.
COSTELLO: what word?
ABBOT: the word in office for windows.
COSTELLO: but there's three words in office for windows!
ABBOT: no, just one. but it's the most popular word in the world
COSTELLO: it is?
ABBOT: yes, but to be fair, there aren't many other words left. It
pretty much wiped out all the other words out there.
COSTELLO: and that word is real one?
ABBOT: real one has nothing to do with word. Real one isn't even
part of office.
COSTELLO: stop! Don't start that again. What about financial
bookkeeping you have anything I can track my money with?
ABBOT: money.
COSTELLO: that's right. What do you have?
ABBOT: money.
COSTELLO: I need money to track my money?
ABBOT: it comes bundled with your computer.
COSTELLO: what's bundled to my computer?
ABBOT: money
COSTELLO: money comes with my computer?
ABBOT: yes. No extra charge.
COSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much?
ABBOT: one copy
COSTELLO: isn't it illegal to copy money?
ABBOT: Microsoft gave us a license to copy money.
COSTELLO: they can give you a license to copy money?
ABBOT: why not, they own it.

What do I do if the screen freezes?


What has that got to do with my footwear? And these are Adidas, not boots.
