Robot Joke

It's the year 2025 
and a bunch of computers get together for an office party

The robots get drunk 
and try to undo the ribbon on the electronic typewriter 
with a straw


For those of you unfamiliar with the early IBM device above
Electronic typewriters were covered in your History of IT course
Beginning in 1910 with the 1st commercial teletypewriter installed by the Morkrum Company
major innovations such as the Bombe and Colossus at Bletchley Park during WWII
until the birth of the 1st PC in 1981
and the iPad in 2010
