Etch-A-Sketch

Do you remember when the biggest global fear was not terrorism, or environmental catastrophe, but the Millenium Bug? Late in 1999, a friend sent this one and it's still one of my favourites...


Because of heightened concern over Y2K problems and increased demand on IT departments, it has been determined that there is no longer any need for network or software applications support.

The goal is to remove all computers from the desktop by December 1999, thus avoiding the anticipated Y2K problem. Instead, all employees will be provided with an Etch-A-Sketch.

This provides four distinct advantages:

1. No Y2K problems
2. No technical glitches to prevent goals from being accomplished
3. No more wasted time reading and writing e-mails
4. Everybody gets the same advanced model

In anticipation of the changeover, the following is a list of frequently asked questions regarding Etch-A-Sketch Technical Support:

Q: My Etch-A-Sketch has all of these funny little lines all over the screen.
A: Pick it up and shake it.

Q: How do I turn off my Etch-A-Sketch?
A: Pick it up and shake it.

Q: What's the shortcut for Undo?
A : Pick it up and shake it.

Q: How do I create a New Document Window?
A: Pick it up and shake it.

Q: How do I set the background and foreground to the same color?
A: Pick it up and shake it.

Q: What is the proper procedure for rebooting my Etch-A-Sketch
A: Pick it up and shake it.

Q: How do I delete a document on my Etch-A-Sketch?
A: Pick it up and shake it.

Q: How do I save my Etch-A-Sketch document?
A: Don't shake it.
