maybe your punch card reader isn't working

Whenever life gets you down, there is one thing you can always look to as a consistent source of amusement: a middle-age woman trying to use a computer.

Such as tonight, when Thad's wife came into my room, phone up to her ear, talking to her sister-in-law:

"Hey Adam?"


"Have you been on the internet today?"

"... Yeah... I am right now."

"Oh. Because Elaina can't check her e-mail and she wants me to ask you if the internet is down."

"Is the internet down?"


"Like, the entire internet?"

"Elaina, he's laughing at us. I think the problem might be your computer."
