All right, something's just wrong with this...
I can't put my finger on it...

"Hilfe holen, Anleitung drucken, Gleich offnen, Abbrechen". We've no idea what they mean,

I translated it and it seems to come out as;
"Everything bites on cheese rainbow pool daddy, like another handshake?"

It looses something in the translation.
2001-07-23 12:50:48 PM  
actually it translates to:
Hilfe Holen - "get aid"
Anleitung drucken - "Print instructions"
Gleich offnen - "Equally Open"
Abbrechen - "Interrupt"

if it's micrsoft it should say:
"Slow Down"
2001-07-23 12:56:15 PM  
Illegal operation!

Yeah, and the next day the guy has a memory dump and forgets to call her

Does that mean that G-Spots are actually Easter Eggs? "Hold down her navel while twisting her left nipple three times to the right, stick your no-no in her who-ha, and lick her right ear."

Obvously, with a Mac, the woman undresses herself for your enjoyment.

But then she bursts into flames like the Cube and the old Powerbooks did.

I really hope XP kills Microsoft.
This whole subscription and forced register crap they're pulling is bullshiat.

But on the other hand if XP will give you boobies..

Gawd love Babelfish:

"Get assistance.
Print guidance.
Open directly.

If only boobies came with context-sensitive help...

Sazerac - 'course they do. S'what the female person the other side of 'em is for.

Good, it's microsoft. For boobie access just follow these steps:

del c:\windows\boobies.pwl

click start, then 'logoff boobies' Click OK

when logon screen comes up, type 'boobies' in the username. Leave password blank and click OK.

Talk about flat chested..

In the 20th century we had "How Computers are Better than Women" (.txt, 'natch). Now, in the 21st century, it appears we need "How to Tell the Difference Between Computers and Women".

Does anyone else love the bars with the clasp in the front. Damn, you can pop 'em off with two fingers.

The more common "bear traps" ought to be outlawed.
2001-07-23 03:41:53 PM  
That picture was of her back. Someone needs some remedial boobie classes.
2001-07-23 03:47:55 PM  
If women are from Microsoft, where are men from?
2001-07-23 04:05:03 PM  

I second that. Tell that to bra manufacturers, though.
At least its fairly easy for me to find ones that fasten in the front because I'm an A and more of the smaller ones are like that, but my partner is a C and has a lot more trouble. It all traces back to the victorian days where women didn't dress themselves :P

The real commercial shows the lady being XP certified. (After all don't we all want our ladies XP'ed) and two week later you come down with a virus.

More accurately, in terms of the English menus:

Hilfe holen = Help
Anleitung drucken = Print Instructions
Gleich offnen = Open (or Open Now)
Abbrechen = Cancel
2001-07-23 05:36:34 PM  
Um... more precisely, the English popup "Help" is rendered "Hilfe" in German, so in this case "Hilfe holen" would tanslate to "Get help".
I think it's intended to be humourous. Um.

Contrary to popular belief, the Swiss do have a sense of humour. A single one, and they keep it safe in vault.
2001-07-23 05:37:26 PM  
"a vault"

2001-07-23 08:23:34 PM  
Great, it's more of MicrOsOfts "embrace and extend" monopolistic relationship!

Blue Screen Of Death

Or more precisely, Blue Balls of Death.

Can't we all just get a Mac?
