    Smile Time to call in yer Mom!

    Caught On The Web!

    If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
    and the bus is interrupted at a very last resort,
    and the access of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
    then the socket packet pocket has an error to report.

    If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
    and the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash;
    and your data is corrupted cause the index doesn't hash,
    then your situation's hopeless and your system's going to crash!

    If the label on the cable on the table at your house
    says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,
    but your packets want to tunnel to another protocol,
    that's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall,
    and your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss,
    til your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse;
    then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang,
    'cuz sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang!

    When the copy of your floppy's getting sloppy in the disk
    and the macrocode instructions cause unnecessary risk,
    then you'll have to flash the memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM.
    Quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell your Mom!

    This piece of humor was passed to me from my friend, via e-mail. And I did write it with bold caption at the begining of the post 'Caught on the web!'. By the way, if you search this on google you'll end up with numerous websites where this joke/funny poem is written. So, Isn't the mentioning of 'Caught on the web', the right thing.

    I guess you should be more specific next time. State at the beginning how exactly you got it and perhaps where one could find it on the web. Other than that, thanks for sharing it. I agree: it's very clever.
