Re: OOOH!! That's Corny! Moans, Groans, and other Rotten Jokes

Some years ago, a laboratory was studying the intelligence of chimpanzees.  To this end, they placed an infinite number of typewriters in front of an infinite number of monkeys.  After several weeks, they made a breakthrough.  In one of the typewriters was typed:  "To be or not to be, that is the gzrbdla."

It"s true that anyone can be a successful writer with either a typewriter or a computer--all you have to do is just figure out which keys to hit.

I'd say typewriter fanatics are more likely to enjoy these puns than anybody else, but that would be...

You get a yellow card for that one!

The Columbus method of typing:  1.  Taking your finger and hunting for the key that you want to strike (sight);  2.  Striking the key (land);  Sight and Land.

Can't tell if that's another joke or not, TypewriterKing! But if you're referring to my photographs, then yes, that's my father's way of typing. I asked the poor man to be hand-model while I fiddled with the camera.

The sacrifices we make for terrible puns...

Yeah, I know.  But I also know that old typists never die--they just get all keyed up.

I hear that typing can be a very touching experience--especially if you use all eight fingers, don't look at the keys, and either thumb for the space bar.

Would that be considered a "dual" message?

Thought for the day:  To reboot a computer, all you need to do is to shut it down and turn it back on again.  To reboot a typewriter, you got to turn it on its back, unscrew the old feet and install better conditioned ones.
