Geek jokes

"We are sorry, but the number you have dialed is imaginary. Please rotate your phone 90 degrees and try again."
"Press any key to continue or any other key to quit..."
"Unix is user friendly...its just selective about who its friends are."

Latin joke

Julius Caesar walks into a bar. "I'll have a martinus," he says.
The Bartender gives him a puzzled look and asks, "Don't you mean a 'martini'?"
"Look," Caesar retorts, "If I wanted a double, I would have asked for it!"


Poetry

May I boil in oil
And fry in Crisco
If I ever call
San Francisco 'Frisco'
-- Ogden Nash
