Re: The New Joke Thread

As we Silver Surfers (aka seniors ) know, sometimes we have trouble with our computers.


Yesterday, I had a problem, so I called Georgie , the 11-year old next door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control, and asked him to come over.


Georgie clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.


As he was walking away, I called after him, 'So, what was wrong?


He replied, 'It was an ID ten T error.'


I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, 'An, ID ten T error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.'


Georgie grinned .. 'Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?


'No,' I replied.


'Write it down,' he said, 'and I think you'll figure it out.'


So I wrote down:


ID10T


I used to like Georgie , the little s***head.

We used to say the problem was between the keyboard and the seat.

You'd be amazed how hostile some people can be after that.

Weather eye am wrong oar write

And eye can put the error rite

Eye have run this poem threw it,
I am shore your pleased two no.
Its letter perfect awl the weigh,
my chequer tolled me sew.
