    Who's on 1st , a little twist....

    If Bud Abbott and Lou Costello were alive today, their infamous 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 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? 
    ABBOTT: I   just did. 
    COSTELLO: You just did what? 
    ABBOTT:  Recommend something. 
    COSTELLO: You recommended something? 
    ABBOTT:  Yes. 
    COSTELLO: For my office? 
    ABBOTT:  Yes. 
    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?
    ABBOTT:  Word. 
    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 you 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? 
    ABBOTT: Why not?  THEY OWN IT! 
    (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".............
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
