    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'..... ........
