The Mail Demon: Do you know what a farking Xerox machine does, numbnuts?

I see what you did there
 
2006-12-18 05:41:28 PM  
Definitely worth a chuckle.
 
2006-12-18 05:41:38 PM  
lmfao!!!
 
2006-12-18 05:41:42 PM  
Wait, so what are they trying to advertise? Because they're always researching new ways...

H.G. Pennypacker: I see what you did there

Yep. :) Hope ya don't mind.

The kind of joke that makes the person on the receiving end feel so clever they have to tell everyone that they themselves got the joke.

Hi Steve!

Could somebody bother explaining this to the people who don't get it, please?

Could the people who don't get this please promise not to breed? You know, for the sake of the species?

Oops. Time for a new fark username, little one.
 
2006-12-18 05:42:17 PM  
repeat. get with the program, mods.
 
2006-12-18 05:42:32 PM  
Not mentioned in the obit is the fact that Xerox was literally inventing the future at the PARC research facility, inventing among other things ethernet, postscript, networking, the GUI, etc., and did NOTHING with them.

Submitter owes me a new keyboard.

Nice one.

If you sit on his tombstone, it'll make a copy of your butt.
 
2006-12-18 05:43:43 PM  
YES, this now needs to be on the Best headlines of 2006 thread

(but its too late.........DAMMIT)
 
2006-12-18 05:43:51 PM  
Headline = 10cents a copy
People not getting it = Priceless.

Woulda did it, too, if not for that meddling Jeremy Irons
 
2006-12-18 05:44:10 PM  
Meh, it has limited comedic effect.
 
2006-12-18 05:44:16 PM  
Took me awhile.....lol

Thanks for the giggle!

Every time I look at the picture The Invisible Sky Wizard posted, I notice the one guy about half an inch from the upper left corner who is just sitting there the entire time. Did he die right before they started filming?
 
2006-12-18 05:45:39 PM  
I submitted this with only 2 headlines.
 
2006-12-18 05:45:43 PM  
... oh I get it. You have to fail at the English language to get it, though, because last time I checked, Xerox didn't produce a product called the "Xerox machine". It's called a farking copier, which about 10 other companies manufacture.
 
2006-12-18 05:46:02 PM  
awesome
 
2006-12-18 05:46:07 PM  
Wow. Just wow. Kudos submitter. You are a god among mortals.
 
2006-12-18 05:46:13 PM  
Love it.

TheRaven7

Dude. Leave the basement and get a job. Seriously. Not knowing what a Xerox machine is? Wow.
 
2006-12-18 05:47:13 PM  
Add this to Best Headline(s) of 2006.

Well done.
 
2006-12-18 05:47:22 PM  
This is great! It's up here thrice!

2006-12-18 05:47:27 PM

2006-12-18 05:47:30 PM  
And the bastard got 3 greenlights for it!
 
2006-12-18 05:47:54 PM  
i feel like a moment as grand as 'duke sucks' or 'hilarity ensued' just occurred for the first time.
 
2006-12-18 05:48:04 PM  
Was his name Ricoh Lanier?
Was he killed by a Canon Laser?
Did he die in Color or B/W?


/Ah fugget about it!

Trying to save just a little bit of face any way you can, eh?

Just admit you didn't understand; the joke was over your head and hence wasted on your sub-par intelligence.

Would you still have gotten it? No, because there's no such thing as an "HP Machine".
 
2006-12-18 05:49:47 PM  
Very clever.
 
2006-12-18 05:49:51 PM  
That was great, subby, you are the champ!
 
2006-12-18 05:49:53 PM  
Just ducked in here to commend Submitter on a joke well-played.

Seriously, mate, have yourself a nice, cold drink. You've more than earned it.

No, you just need two things: a sense of humour, and an ass that doesn't have a stick up it.
 
2006-12-18 05:49:59 PM  
Bow out gracefully, TheRaven7.

Somebody give him something shiny. Stat.
 
2006-12-18 05:50:10 PM  
So do we have to wait until NakedReporta dies before this gets headline style gets used again?

/tap-tap-tap-tap
//... dead yet?

/// how bout now?
 
2006-12-18 05:50:19 PM  
There was a funnier one about wormholes and space time continuum a year or two ago. Still, I like the effort
 
2006-12-18 05:50:46 PM  
TheRaven7: Would you still have gotten it? No, because there's no such thing as an "HP Machine".

Walk into any Kinkos in the nation and ask to use their Xerox machine.

Or any Staples, or any other place that has publically available photocopiers.

Everybody in the country will understand what you mean.

Sense of humour: get one.
