OK, time for my simi-anual thread.
Got board (was supposed to be doing my HW, but you know how it goes) this morning, and started to read a little of the Bastard Operator From Hell saga for the 2000th time (give or take).
It occured to me, I wonder how many of our ST readers are familiar with this gem of truth... I mean, comedy? *cough* Anyway, its not the hardest thing to find on the internet, as enough people keep copies that you run across it quite often if you poke around the right places. However, I figgured I'd check and see what you all thought of it. Certianly a classic.
A small taste...
I hear the phone drop and the sound of running feet - he's obviously going to try and get an alibi by being at the Dean's office. I look up his username and find his department. I ring the Dean's secretary.
"Hello?" she answers
"Hi, SIMON, B.O.F.H HERE, LISTEN, WHEN THAT GUY COMES RUNNING INTO YOUR OFFICE IN ABOUT 10 SECONDS, CAN YOU GIVE HIM A MESSAGE?"
"I think so..." she says
"TELL HIM `HE CAN RUN, BUT HE CAN'T HIDE'"
"AND DON'T FORGET NOW, I WOULDN'T WANT TO HAVE TO TELL ANYONE ABOUT THAT FILE IN YOUR ACCOUNT WITH YOUR ANSWERS TO THE PURITY TEST IN IT..."
I hear her scrabbling at the terminal...
"DON'T BOTHER - I HAVE A COPY. BE A GOOD PERVY AND PASS THE MESSAGE ON.."
She sobs her assent and I hang up. And the worst thing is, I was just guessing about the purity test thing. I grab a quick copy anyway, it might make for some good late-night reading.
