Steve And Muffin’s Monday Smiles. #18

Hi everyone and here we are, back with more smiles and chuckles for you to (hopefully) enjoy! Please feel free to laugh if you want. So, here we go…


If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, their famous sketch, “Who’s on First?” may have sounded something like this:
Costello calls a computer store to ask about a computer. Abbot answers the phone.
Abbott: Super Duper Computer Store. Can I help you?
Costello: Yes. I’m setting up an office at home and I’m thinking about buying a computer.
Abbott: Mac?
Costello: No, my name’s Lou.
Abbott: Your computer?
Costello: I don’t own a computer. I want to buy one.
Abbott: Mac?
Costello: I told you, my name’s Lou.
Abbott: OK then, what about Windows?
Costello: Why? Will it get stuffy in there?
Abbott: No. But do you want a computer with Windows?
Costello: I don’t know. What will I see when I look at the windows?
Abbott: Wallpaper at first.
Costello: Never mind the windows! I need a computer and some software.
Abbott: Software for Windows?
Costello: No! On the computer! I need something I can use to run my business, write proposals and track expenses. What do you have?
Abbott: Office.
Costello: Yeah, for my office. I told you that. Can you recommend anything?
Abbott: I just did.
Costello: You just did what?
Abbott: Recommended something.
Costello: You recommended something?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: For my office?
Abbott: Yes.
Costello: OK. What did you recommend for my office?
Abbott: Office.
Costello: Yes, for my office!
Abbott: I recommend Office with Windows.
Costello: My office already has windows! OK, let’s just say I’m sitting at my computer and I want to write a proposal. What would I need?
Abbott: Word.
Costello: What word?
Abbott: Word in Office.
Costello: The only word in office is office.
Abbott: You need the Word in Office for Windows.
Costello: Which word in office for windows?
Abbott: The Word you get when you click the blue “W.”
Costello: I’m going to click your blue “W” if you don’t give me some straight answers. What about bookkeeping? Do you have anything I can use to track my money?
Abbott: Sure, Money.
Costello: That’s right. What do you have?
Abbott: Money.
Costello: I need money to track my money?
Abbott: Yes, and It comes bundled with your computer.
Costello: What comes bundled with my computer?
Abbott: Money.
Costello: Money comes with my computer?
Abbott: Yes. No extra charge.
Costello: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much do I get?
Abbott: One copy.
Costello: Isn’t it illegal to copy money?
Abbott: We got a license from Microsoft to copy Money.
Costello: They can give you a license to copy money?
Abbott: Why not? They own it!
A few days later)
Abbott: Super Duper Computer Store. Can I help you?
Costello: How do I turn my computer off?
Abbott: Click “START.”


I picked this up years ago, but have no idea where it came from. But I like Abbott and Costello and really enjoyed this one. Hope you do as well! Have a great day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.

    It could have been my story πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ή
    Last month I was called for the ELT test which was conducted through a computer and every now and then I was calling the coordinator to guide me how to use a keyboard and mouse, πŸ˜…but I passed the test with flying colors.
    Hope you are having a great time Sir Steve with sweet Muffin 😸😊

    • Hi Saba, nice to hear from you again! I guess you don’t use a computer very much? This story sounded much like me when I first learned how to use a computer. I had a terrible time trying to figure things out!! So glad that you passed the test Saba!!!πŸ˜€πŸ˜»
      Muffin and I are cuddling up inside trying to stay warm these days, and nights!πŸ₯ΆπŸ™€πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Ή
      Hope it’s not too cold where you are.πŸ€”πŸ˜Ί

      • I use my phone for every work. Downloading documents, submitting forms, taking notes, recording lectures; for everything. When I saw there dated computer I said to myself, “who uses this screen with keyboard πŸ˜…”. Every now and then my hands were going to touch the screen. I took that test as a practice for my screening test which is due in February.
        In fact, am using my phone only for all the studies. But I think I should learn to use a computer πŸ€”
        It’s not very cold just now. Quite bearable!
        Hugs for sweet Muffin πŸ€—
        Stay blessed Sir Steve!

      • Wow, I don’t think I could use my phone for all of those things, I prefer a larger screen to look at. I have a laptop which can be turned over and used by touching the screen too. Normally though I use it the regular way and also use a mouse with it, though it does have a touch pad to use as well. A lot of jobs require using a computer, though most now use laptops, but some still use computers.😁πŸ–₯πŸ’»
        Muffin purrs her thanks for the hug.😺😻
        Have a wonderful day Saba!πŸ˜€
