Things that make me chortle, part MCMXLVII

1) Monolithic entities requiring unwashed peons to fax things.

I imagine it'll be different in the far-distant future of the 21st century.

2) Oh great, now they know.

Graves, you swine!

I thought you said that you are a glass 90% empty kinda guy?

Presumably at that point you indicate to the barkeep to fill it up again.

Same thinking in Pakistan.

Knowing is half the bottle, GI Joe.

Maybe we should have the peonic drones fax some Limbaugh and Palin quotes to the hideouts in NW Paki-land.

Or better yet, dangle some virgins with that "come hither you big brute" look on their mugs from 200# fishing line and see what's biting.

I guess those aren't the drones employed by Rupert Murdoch?

Randal Graves said...

mrmacrum, sounds like someone wants to interfere with American target practice. How can we learn to kill only the bride's family in the next wedding party slaughter, commie?

if, zing!

Fax? People still use faxes? Next time try smoke signals.

"Oh great, now they know!" I think that a lot about stuff I read in the news!

I have a comment. My houseboy will be stopping by soon to leave it.

That fax machine dial has too many numbers. Do hey have special ones for ordering pizza and combo bombings?

Re: that top photo. That's not a fax machine. It's the world's first mechanical Ouija board. The device was credited with helping France choose to rely on a static defense, the Maginot Line, to keep it safe from German aggression in the decades between the world wars.

See, the Pakistanis aren't the only ones who are all thumbs when it comes to these things.

Fax machines? Why not iSmoke signals or some other high-tech device?

Totally cool photo! I wonder where the guy is hiding his uber steam punk Babbage analytical engine complete with Ada Lovelace punch card software?

Got to love Pakistan, where else can so much tax payer money go to both bribe officials and blow up innocent civilians.
