Me human being, You computer

J'ai découvert ceci sur le site C'est en anglais mais assez compréhensible. Cela nous montre à quel points certains termes peuvent être interprétés différemment. Surtout quand on est un gros boulet informatique. OK, je suis un peu geek sur les bords mais bon il y a des limites à la connerie quand même...

_ Abbott: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?
_ Costello: Thanks. I'm setting up an office in my den and I'm thinking about buying a computer.
_ Abbott: Mac?
_ Costello: No, the name's Lou.
_ Abbott: Your computer?
_ Costello: I don't own a computer. I want to buy one.
_ Abbott: Mac?
_ Costello: I told you, my name's Lou.
_ Abbott: What about Windows?
_ Costello: Why? Will it get stuffy in here?
_ Abbott: Do you want a computer with Windows?
_ Costello: I don't know. What will I see when I look at the windows?
_ Abbott: Wallpaper.
_ Costello: Never mind the windows. I need a computer and software.
_ Abbott: Software for Windows?
Costello: No. On the computer! I need something I can use to write proposals, track expenses and run my business. What do you have?
_ Abbott: Office.
_ Costello: Yeah, for my office. Can you recommend anything?

_ Costello: The only word in office is office.
_ Abbott: The Word in Office for Windows.
_ Costello: Which word in office for windows?
_ Abbott: The Word you get when you click the blue 'W'.
_ Costello: I'm going to click your blue 'W' if you don't start with some straight answers. What about financial bookkeeping? You have anything I can track my money with?
_ Abbott: Money.
_ Costello: That's right. What do you have?
_ Abbott: Money.
