Monday Humor to Get Your Week Going

I don’t know about you but for me Monday is not the best day! Surprise huh?

Anyway, I have just got in email a Super Funny Joke and I wanted to share! Please let me know if you aware who is original author of this sketch so I could give the credit! It is too funny:

If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today their famous sketch, ‘Who’s on First?’ might have turned out something like this:


ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?

COSTELLO: Thanks. I’m setting up an office in my den and I’m thinking
buying a computer.


COSTELLO: No, the name’s Lou.

ABBOTT: Your computer?

COSTELLO: I don’t own a computer. I want to buy one.


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?

COSTEL LO: 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?

ABBOTT: I just did.

COSTELLO: You just did what?

ABBOTT: Recommend something.

COSTELLO: You recommended something?


COSTELLO: For my office?


COSTELLO: OK, what did you recommend for my office?

ABBOTT: Office.

COSTELLO: Yes, for my office!

ABBOTT: I recommend Office with Windows.

COSTELLO: I already have an office with windows! OK, let’s just say I’m
sitting at my computer and I want to type a proposal. What do I need?


COSTELLO: What word?

ABBOTT: Word in Office.

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 yo u have?

ABBOTT: Money.

COSTELLO: I need money to track my money?

ABBOTT: It comes bundled with your computer.

COSTELLO: What’s bundled with my computer?

ABBOTT: Money.

COSTELLO: Money comes with my computer?

ABBOTT: Yes. No extra charge.

COSTELLO: I get a bundle of money with my computer? How much?

ABBOTT: One copy.

COSTELLO: Isn’t it illegal to copy money?

ABBOTT: Microsoft gave us a license to copy Money.

COSTELLO: They can give you a license to copy money?


(A few days later)

ABBOTT: Super Duper computer store. Can I help you?

COSTELLO: How do I turn my computer off?

ABBOTT: Click on ‘START’ …

Once again, this sketch his from an email I got. If you know who is the author, let me know I would be happy to give full credit!

  6. I don’t want to “rain on the parade” here; but that’s an old one…
    REAL old. I seriously doubt you’ll ever find its origin. But it IS a good one for th’ young among us who haven’t heard it.

    Hey Alex,
    Pretty funny! Kind of an old “who’s on first” take off with a modern day computer spin. Thanks for sharing.

    Awesome! That was truly hilarious, though if you’ve ever worked with computers AND people who don’t know anything about them it’ll be more sad than funny 😉

  10. Pretty funny. I watched some Abott & Costello movies past years and although it is not very subtle kind of humour I can’t say the movies aren’t funny. They are funny indeed, and this sketch about buying computer is really great. Based on simple and genius idea of comedy of mistakes.

    Not bad, I can imagine the whole scenario in front of me. There must have been something similar created already? Windows/Windows, Office/Office and Start/Off.
