A boy asks his parents for a new computer because his old one is running too slow. His parents tell him it’s not in the budget.
Determined, the boy goes into the kitchen, grabs the microwave and food processor, comes back and begins attaching the two appliances together. His parents see the boy and ask him what he’s doing.
He says, “First I’m building the microprocessor and then I’ll see what else we got lying around.”
Mom had just returned from shopping and was surveying the ghastly scene in the den. The family computer had been totally smashed into a dozen pieces.
"What happened to the PC?" she asked of her 14 year old son.
"That was dad's doing," he replied. "As usual he couldn't get it to do what he wanted. I told him to reboot it. That's exactly what he did."
