I'm Purple For Pentium!

Shawn asked for this. It's his fault. I assure you its temporary. My eyes hurt!

Update: Shawn, that was really ugly and I couldn't take it anymore. No more Purple for Pentium. (What'd they ever do for me anyway?)

Maybe you could try a slightly lighter shade of purple?

Um, Shawn just has his pruple in 2 strips down the side. Your site looks like someone trying to visualize a bad acid trip.

I thought you were in NY, not San Fran.

Hey, with his level in involvement, Nathan might with (2) Pentium Pro desktops! ;)

Thanks a lot, Shawn and Nathan. I now have purple splotches in my vision.

Nathan said...

But Shawn, I still have no idea what you're talking about. I know it's a joke, but I'm too stupid to get it.

And once you explain it...I'll still be stupid.

D'oh!

Janiece,

You're welcome.

John,

Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!

John the Scientist said...

"Rain" does not rhyme with "again"!

"Again" rhymes with "win".

(Limey bastards)

Nathan said...

I think it's hysterical that the crappy rhyming sequence is your main problem with that lyric. :D

Tom said...

It sounds like I'm really glad I missed the purple!

John the Scientist said...

nathan - well, I remember older folks who put cakes and pies on the windowsill to cool. So that part makes some sense.

But WTF, did they eat the recipe?

Nathan said...

Tom,

It was hideous!

John,

There's also:

Spring was never waiting for us, girl
It ran one step ahead
As we followed in the dance
Between the parted pages and were pressed
In love's hot, fevered iron
Like a striped pair of pants.

And that song was popular!

I missed the purple too, but when I was playing with blogger templates looking at your image issue, I *saw* it. It was bad. It was begging for a preteen girl to adopt it and upload many pictures of horses & Hannah Montana.
