Only those over 50 will remember these….

Before the Computer

An application was for employment
A program was a TV show
A cursor used profanity
A keyboard was a piano!

Memory was something that you lost with age
A CD was a bank account
and if you had a broken disk,
it would hurt when you found out

Compr3ess was something you did to garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public
You’d be in jail for a while!

Log on was adding wood to a fire
Hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lives
And a backup happened to your commode

Cut – you did with a pocket knife
Paste – you did with glue
A web was a spider’s home
And a virus was the flue!

I guess I’ll stick to my pad and paper
And the memory in my head
I hear nobody’s been killed in a computer crash
But when it happens they wish they were dead!

A little humour for the day
