Mac… No, my name is Lou..

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

COSTELLO CALLS TO BUY A COMPUTER FROM ABBOTT.

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’………….
