A lady goes to customer service and asks for a refund on the disposable barbecue she has brought back to the store.
Assistant: "What seems to be the problem, madam?"
Lady: "The food is missing."
Assistant: "I'm sorry?"
Lady: "Look, on the outside of the packaging it clearly shows sausages, chops and burgers. When I opened the package they were missing."
Assistant: "Madam, it says ""contents for illustration purposes only". You have to supply the food."
Lady (somewhat sheepish): "Oh. I may as well take the other two barbecues out of the freezer, then."
The Ultimate Computer stood at the end of the Ultimate Computer Company's production line. At which point the guided tour eventually arrived. The salesman stepped forward to give his prepared demo. "This," he said, "is the Ultimate Computer. It will give an intelligent answer to any question you may care to ask it."
A smart-aleck who ran a humor mailing list stepped forward and asked, "Where is my father?"
There was the soft hum of powerful electronic gear going to the task. Panel lights lit and blinked, and within a couple of seconds the laser printer printed out a piece of paper: "Fishing off Florida."
The smart-aleck laughed, "Actually, my father is dead! It was a trick question."
The salesman, quickly thinking on his feet, replied that he was sorry the answer was unsatisfactory, but as the Ultimate Computer was precise, perhaps a rewording of the question might work better.
The smart-aleck said to the Ultimate Computer, "Where is my mother's husband?" Again, the hum of the powerful electronic brain filled the room.
After a moment, the laser printer whirred to life. The paper said, "Dead. But your father is still fishing off Florida."
Amos was sitting on the steps of the town store when a red convertible with Massachusetts plates rolled up and the driver says, "Hey, Bub which way to East Vassalboro?"
Amos says, "How did you know my name was Bub?"
"Just a lucky guess, I guess." replied the driver.
"Well, says Amos, see if you can get lucky again and guess the way to East Vassalboro."
