Scene: A cafe. One table is occupied by a group of Vikings wearing horned helmets. Whenever the word "spam" is repeated, they begin singing and/or chanting. A man and his wife enter. The man is played by Eric Idle, the wife is played by Graham Chapman (in drag), and the waitress is played by Terry Jones (also in drag).

Man: You sit here, dear.

Wife: All right.

Man: Morning!

Waitress: Morning!

Man: Well, what've you got?

Waitress: Well, there's egg and bacon; egg sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg bacon and spam; egg bacon sausage and spam; spam bacon sausage and spam; spam egg spam spam bacon and spam; spam sausage spam spam bacon spam tomato and spam;

Vikings: Spam spam spam spam...

Waitress: ...spam spam spam egg and spam; spam spam spam spam spam spam baked beans spam spam spam...

Vikings: Spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam!

Waitress: ...or Lobster Thermidor a Crevette with a mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy, with a fried egg on top and spam.

Wife: Have you got anything without spam?

Waitress: Well, there's spam egg sausage and spam, that's not got much spam in it.

Wife: I don't want ANY spam!

Man: Why can't she have egg bacon spam and sausage?

Wife: THAT'S got spam in it!

Man: Hasn't got as much spam in it as spam egg sausage and spam, has it?

Vikings: Spam spam spam spam... (Crescendo through next few lines...)

Wife: Could you do the egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam then?

Waitress: Urgghh!

Wife: What do you mean 'Urgghh'? I don't like spam!

Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!

Waitress: Shut up!

Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!

Waitress: Shut up! (Vikings stop) Bloody Vikings! You can't have egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam.

Wife: I don't like spam!

Man: Sshh, dear, don't cause a fuss. I'll have your spam. I love it. I'm having spam spam spam spam spam spam spam baked beans spam spam spam and spam!

Vikings: Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!

Waitress: Shut up!! Baked beans are off.

Man: Well could I have her spam instead of the baked beans then?

Waitress: You mean spam spam spam spam spam spam... (but it is too late and the Vikings drown her words)

Vikings: (Singing elaborately...) Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam! Spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam. Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Spam spam spam spam!

Just kidding, but join the Ministry of Silly Walks team now and you will receive occasional emails from the teams founder, Michael Berger. That in itself makes it worth while, don't you think?

In an botched attempt to look like a hero, an unnamed F-12 Pilot crashed and burned today during the closing moments of the Bay of Pigs fiasco. He failed to notice that friendly troops had already left the theater of operations.


The F-12 Pilot at the controls just hours before the crash.

Just what we need, another Message Board Deity in the form of JAHMAGIC. It appears that your devotion to study hasn't endowed you with any real wisdom. Oh, and by the way, could we have a little more attitude please.

No Trane, you're wrong. The process required to merge identical hosts can't happen accidentally. You're telling parties on both sides of this issue that they're wrong, and that, my meddlesome friend, reeks of stupidity. The only comments out of line here are yours.

Just because you're not aware of which list is effected doesn't make your statement true. Top Computers is the list I'm speaking of. Combining totals is cheating for it serves no other useful purpose. Just ask PoorBoy and PCZ, that's how they got to the top of the list!

Poorboy,

Speaking of credits and evil... Cheating by merging clients to get to the top of the list, hmmm, just like PCZ.

I think you're right Guido. My computers use 0% for the GUI no matter which TAB is being displayed. Maybe it's O.E. or just plain bad karma.

BTW: Is this a new and improved model PoorBoy? I thought our friend quit LHC.
