Norman was in his front garden mowing his lawn, when his neighbor, Libby, came out of her house and went straight to the mailbox. She opened it, then slammed it shut and stormed back into the house.

Ten minutes later Libby came out of her house again, went to the mail box, and again opened it and slammed it shut again. Angrily she stormed back into the house.

As Norman was putting his mower away, Libby came out once again. She marched up to the mailbox, opened it and then slammed it closed.

Puzzled by her distress Norman asked, 'What's wrong with your mailbox Libby?'

To which she replied, 'It's my stupid computer it keeps telling me, 'New Mail has Arrived'.'

How to Start the Day and Feel Really Good

2. Entitle it 'Housework.'

3. Place it in the Recycle Bin.

4. Empty the Recycle Bin.

The IT director advertises that he needs a secretary. Necessary skills: document forming, computer knowledge and a foreign language. After a couple of days a dog walks in.

"I'm an open minded person," the pale-turned boss stutters, "but I need someone who can form documents..."

The dog sits down behind the computer and compiles a totally decent business letter.

"Yes, but the IT-knowledge..."

The dog quickly writes a little program.

"Well, but foreign language?" the totally amazed director asks.

"Meow!" says the dog.

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.

When asked to define "great" he replied, 'I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!'

He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.

When I Was Young - A Funny Computer Poem

A computer was something on TV
From a science fiction show of note
A window was something you hated to clean
And ram was the cousin of a goat.

Meg was the name of my girlfriend
And gig was a job for the nights
Now they all mean different things
And that really mega bytes.

An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
A keyboard was a piano.

Compress was something you did to the garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public
You'd be in jail for a while.

Log on was adding wood to the fire
Hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a backup happened to your commode.

Cut you did with a pocket knife
Paste you did with glue
A web was a spider's home
And a virus was the flu.
