I’ve been playing with a new Dell Axim Pocket PC (not mine) which attempts handwriting recognition. Having had a few fairly unsuccessful goes, I was reminded of the funniest joke I’ve heard in weeks, courtesy of Wikipedia (fount of all useless knowledge, and much useful knowledge too):
Q: How many Apple Newton users does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Foux! There to eat lemons, axe gravy soup.
Although this had me laughing out loud, I can’t actually decrypt what the answer is supposed to be. I know that’s not the point, but I’m curious. It’s fairly obvious it starts with “Four! Three to…”, but the rest is unclear. Ideas in the comments, please :-)
Q: How many Newtons does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Farm. (Notes: refers to the Newton’s poor handwriting recognition techniques)
Q: How many Apple Newton users does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
A: Only one, tharks to the extnq-producilve handwritling processcr.
