Life before computers

Filed under: Funny — hindumommy @ 11:47 pm


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

Memory was something that you lost with age
And a CD was a bank account
And if you had a corrupted disk
It would hurt when you found out! 

Compress was what 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
A hard drive was a trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a backup happened to the commode! 

Cutting, you did with a pocket knife,
Pasting, you did with glue.
The Web was where a spider lived
And a virus was the flu!

  3. Dr Preshit Mulay….Yes and yes to both ur questions
    I think bringing up kids anywhere is tough enough because as a parent you are in charge of those young minds….what’s harder in the US is that they do not imbibe Indian culture naturally thru the environment so as a parent your responsibility to make sure they understand their heritage is more challenging and requires more effort
