Tom Lehrer is Smug

Computer Time with Mr. Abbie

Abbie On Computer Plastic Bag Warnings! Silica Gel!
Oh, our intrepid friend Abbie has found himself a computer box. "I WOnder what could be INSide," he muses. "Maybe there' streasure" Our first foray into the box yields a plastic bag with some very strange glyphs. I believe they're warnings or rules of some sort. The one on the left is clearly "No Al Jolson Imitations" and the one on the right, I think, is "No Astronaut Babies." And finally, inside the box, is the treasure! The prize we sought! Silica Gel, and baby, it's inedible! Yowsa yowsa yowsa!

Too bad Abbie disappeared before I could show him the silica gel. Oh well, c'est la guerre.
