Nothing to say
Hear ye, hear ye,
Hip hip hurray
I know I’m supposed to write something here
But I don’t know what to say
Something about the Macintosh
I guess is what it should be
After all, I write for “My Mac”
I don’t write for “My PC”
Hmm! PowerPC is not a PC
I know I could write about that
You cannot deny, that PowerPC
Has something to do with the Mac
So what should I say about PowerPC
A chip that is fast and sleek
The heart and soul of the PowerMac
Guaranteed by Apple, not to leak.
Well, ain’t that good news
Better write down that fact
Cause we all hate it when we buy
A leaky PowerMac.
Now we all know what computer to buy
It’s the one without any leakage
It’s not the Pentium, and if you ask me why
I’ll start talking co-processor seepage
Moving on and changing subjects
Cause that’s all I know about that
A question of thought comes to mind
So put on your thinking cap
One day while trucking over Donner Pass
Between Reno and Sacramento
I thought of a question that needs to be asked
Whatever happened to the little Ford Pinto?
That’s really not the question
I had in mind
but as you can see
I couldn’t pass up the rhyme
The real question I have is all about floppies
Those disks that are flat but don’t flop
The question is simple: Does an empty floppy weigh more
Than one that is filled to the top?
A stupid question? Oh yes, I agree
Not a question to lose any sleep over
But I sure do, oh yes sirree
Someone tell me the answer before I get older.
If you read “Miner Thoughts” in last months issue
You know I’ve been working on this
And if I don’t find the answer, pretty damn quick
I tell ya, I’m gonna be p_ _ _ _ _ ! (disgruntled?)
I want to apologize to all of you
Dear Constant Readers of mine
Maybe next month, I’ll have something to say
And I’ll try not to make it rhyme
Just one more thing before I go
I think you might all want to know
Come hell or high water, disease or starvation
I intend to find the reason for Dogcows creation.
You may think this column is lame
And I cannot argue with that
But before I forget, let me say this
You sure look funny in that thinking cap.
See Ya next month, when I take you all on a yellow submarine ride into the depths of the Dogcow phenom. That is of course provided I still have any readers left. If not, I’ll just go by myself and pretend you’re with me!
