[fwd] Y2K humor

>***The Night Before Y2K (Humor)
>'Twas the night before Y2K and all through the nation
>We awaited The Bug, The Millennium sensation.
>The chips were replaced in computers with care,
>In hopes that ol' Bugsy wouldn't stop there.
>While some folks could think they were snug in their beds
>Others had visions of dread in their heads.
>And Ma with her PC, and I with my Mac
>Had just logged on the Net and kicked back with a snack.
>When over the server, there arose such a clatter
>I called Mister Gates to see what was the matter.
>But he was away, so I flew like a flash
>To my bank to withdraw all my hard-earned cash.
>When what with my wandering eyes should I see?
>But my good old Mac looked sick to me.
>The hack of all hackers was looking so smug,
>I knew that it must be The Y2K Bug!
>His image downloaded in no time at all,
>He whistled and shouted, "Let all systems fall!
>Go Intel! Go Gateway! Now HP! Big Blue!
>Everything Compaq, and Pentium too!
>All processors big, all processors small,
>Crash away! Crash away! Crash away all!
>All the controls that planes need for their flights
>All microwaves, trains and all traffic lights!"
>As I drew in my breath and was turning around,
>Out through the modem, he came with a bound.
>He was covered with fur, and slung on his back
>Was a sackful of virus, set for attack.
>His eyes, how they twinkled! His dimples, how merry!
>As midnight approached, though, things soon became scary.
>He'd a broad little face and a round little belly,
>And his sack filled with virus just quivered like jelly.
>He was chubby and plump, perpetually grinning,
>And I laughed when I saw him, though my hard drive stopped spinning.
>A wink of his eye, and a twist of his head,
>Soon gave me to know a new feeling of dread.
>He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
>He changed all the clocks, then turned with a jerk.
>With a twitch of his nose, and a quick little wink,
>All things electronic soon went on the blink.
>He zoomed from my system, to the next folks on line,
>He caused such a disruption, could this be a sign?
>Then I heard him exclaim, with a loud, hearty cry,
>"Happy Y2K to all! Kiss your PCs goodbye!"
