HARDWARE, n. The Father, First of the Three Persons of the God Computer.

And whyfor, O Great Kitty, should Our Dawg get hammered for calling a spade a spade?

HARDWARE, n. - As opposed to software?

hardware--the boring stuff that holds jewelry together.

Ariel the Thief said...

Wow, Actonbell. That's a gem.

TLP said...

Hardware: what little boys give to their jeans.

Or, a girdle.

TLP said...

Nice pun Ariel.

Logophile said...

If only that described his indulgence to the extent it described my conscience...

ah well

quilly said...

And here I was just thinking of suits of armor.

cooper said...

I was thinking of my computers guts...

Jim said...

Hardware: one half the blame team when your computer malfunctions.
Hardware blames the software and vice versa.

Nessa said...

...that's because men have no consciences. (You knew i had to, didn't you?)

Sauerkraut, as a man of the pre-cro-magnon sort, accountability rarely finds me.

Defense, on the other hand. Amoeba, are the other two Software and Pop-up?

Sauerkraut, you must be one of the more refined varieties.

It still is, by George.

Thom, as opposed to maul.

Actonbell, I expected you to go with the boring stuff that assembles shoes. Is there a feminine vice you lack besides run-on sentences?

Ariel, that was a clever pun!

TLP, some days you make restraint difficult.

Logo, be thankful. I learned to drive taking my dad to the emergency room during home-improvement projects. Eventually I learned to keep the car running. What I never realized until just now was that my dad's idea of home improvement was moving from a two-parent household to a one-parent household.

Quilly, that might be Strawberry Fife trying to come back, which I encourage.

Cooper, when I use a windows machine that's all I ever think about.

Well done, Jim.

Nessa, I suppose I would have if I had a conscience to nag me.

Firmware, Dawg. The Second Person is, of course, the Son, Bill Gates, while the Third is the Ghost In The Machine.
