    Dr. Seuss

    What if Dr. Seuss Did Technical Training Manuals?

    Here's an easy game to play.
    Here's an easy thing to say:

    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 item
    followed by a dash,
    And the double-clicking icon
    puts your window in the trash,
    And your data is corrupted `cause the index doesn't hash,
    Then your situation's hopeless,
    and your system's gonna crash!

    You can't say this?
    What a shame, sir!
    We'll find you
    Another game, sir.

    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
    to another protocol,
    That's repeatedly rejected
    by the printer down the hall.

    And your screen is all 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
    and go out with a bang,
    `Cause as sure as I'm a poet,
    the sucker's gonna hang!

    When the copy of your floppy's
    getting sloppy on the disk,
    And the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risk,
    Then you have to flash your memory
    and you'll want to RAM your ROM.
    Quickly turn off the computer
    and be sure
    to tell your mom.

    Sparkie, that's brilliant. Had me in stitches. How long did it take you to come up with it?

    I would be willing to bet that she didn't come up with it...

    If she did then I am very impressed indeed.

    No no no, I didn't come up with it

    I found a disk of computer jokes that I had saved from ages ago, and upon reading this one, I thought the community might enjoy it

    Well at least you admitted it - says something for your scruples!

    Have you ever written anything like that though? I love that kind of stuff and have written the odd bit myself - not about pc's though.
