I thought this would be for real jokes, not some lame OS War posting. But here we go then:

Mac OS X 10.5 Blue Screen of Death...

Mmm, that's some pwnage right there, didn't even need any sort of imagery. What I don't get is what you meant by "OS War". My understanding is that you're both for anything other than Vista...am I missing the joke, is this some old meme thing?

   DR Seuss explains computors.
 
 If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port, and the bus is interrupted as a very last resort, and the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort, then the socket packet pocket has an error to report. If your cursor finds a menu followed by a dash, and the double clicking icon puts your window in the trash, and your data is corrupted cause the index doesnt hash then your situations hopeless and your systems gonna crash. If the label on the cable on the table at your house says the network is connected to the button on your mouse, but your packets want to tunnel on another protocol, thats repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall and your screen is distorted by the side effects of gauss, so your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse, then you may as well reboot it and let it go out with a bang. Cause as sure as im a poet the suckers gonna hang, when the copy of your floppys getting sloppy on the disk and the micro code instructions cause unneccesary risk, then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to ram your ROM, so quickly turn off your computer and run go tell your mum.

A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel plans. So, the husband left Minneapolis and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day. The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the email.

Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband’s funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack. The widow decided to check her email expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted. The widow’s son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

To: My loving wife
Subject: I’ve arrived
Date: April 6, 2006

I know you’re surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you’re allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then. Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.

P.S. sure is freaking hot down here!

British 'Joke of the year' some lightyears ago:
Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson go camping, and pitch their tent under the stars.

During the night, Holmes wakes his companion and says: "Watson, look up at the stars, and tell me what you deduce."

Watson says: "I see millions of stars, and even if a few of those have planets, it’s quite likely there are some planets like Earth, and if there are a few planets like Earth out there, there might also be life."

Holmes replies: "Watson, you idiot. Somebody stole our tent."

By the way Tony, I see my post that was a comment about the OS wars has disappeared understandably given it wasn't a joke ... would you consider removing Reply # 96633 as well?

Tongue out

An Alsatian went to a telegram office, took out a blank form and wrote, “Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof.

The clerk examined the paper and politely told the dog: “There are only nine words here. You could send another ‘Woof’ for the same price.

But,” the dog replied, “that would make no sense at all!

 

And one more to atone for the non-joke portion of my post:


A policeman pulls a man over for speeding and asks him to get out of the car. After looking the man over he says, "Sir, I couldn''t help but notice your eyes are bloodshot. Have you been drinking?" The man gets really indignant and says, "Officer, I couldn''t help but notice your eyes are glazed. Have you been eating doughnuts?"

A certain lawyer was quite wealthy and had a summer house in the country, to which he retreated for several weeks of the year.


Each summer, the lawyer would invite a different friend of his to spend a week or two up at this place, which happened to be in a backwoods section of Maine.


On one particular occasion, he invited a Czechoslovakian friend to stay with him. The friend, eager to get a freebie off a lawyer, agreed. Well, they had a splendid time in the country - rising early and living in the great outdoors.


Early one morning, the lawyer and his Czechoslovakian companion went out to pick berries for their morning breakfast. As they went around the berry patch, gathering blueberries and raspberries in tremendous quantities, along came two huge Bears - a male and a female.


Well, the lawyer, seeing the two bears, immediately dashed for cover. His friend, though, wasn't so lucky, and the male bear reached him and swallowed him whole. The lawyer ran back to his Mercedes, tore into town as fast has he could, and got the local backwoods sheriff.


The sheriff grabbed his shotgun and dashed back to the berry patch with the lawyer. Sure enough, the two bears were still there.


"He's in THAT one!" cried the lawyer, pointing to the male, while visions of lawsuits from his friend's family danced in his head. He just had to save his friend.


The sheriff looked at the bears, and without batting an eye, leveled his gun, took careful aim, and SHOT THE FEMALE.


"What did you do that for!" exclaimed the lawyer, "I said he was in the other!"


"Exactly," replied the sheriff, "and would YOU believe a lawyer who told you that the Czech was in the Male?"

Four men were bragging about how smart their cats are (as you do). The first man was an engineer, the second man was an accountant, the third man was a chemist, the fourth was a government Worker.

To show off, the engineer called to his cat. "T-square, do your stuff." T-square pranced over to a desk, took out some paper and a pen and promptly drew a circle, a square, and a triangle. Everyone agreed that was pretty smart.

But the accountant said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, "Spreadsheet, do your stuff." Spreadsheet went out into the kitchen and returned with a dozen cookies. He divided them into 4 equal piles of 3 cookies each. Everyone agreed that was good.

But the chemist said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, "Measure, do your stuff." Measure got up, walked over to the fridge, took out a quart of milk, got a 10 ounce glass from the cupboard and poured exactly 8 ounces without spilling a drop. Everyone agreed that was good (whatever a 'quart' and an 'ounce' are).

Then the three men turned to the government worker and said, "What can your cat do?" The government worker called to his cat and said, "Coffee Break, do your stuff." Coffee Break jumped to his feet, ate the cookies, drank the milk, peed on the paper, sexually assaulted the other three cats, claimed he injured his back while doing so, filed a grievance report for unsafe working conditions, put in for Workers Compensation and went home for the rest of the day on sick leave.
