Yesterday I was telling our intern NOLAN about the history of recording tape. NOLAN, being an MP3 type of guy was really moved when I told him about the first "tape" recording was actually on a "wire"...yes, wire recorders for real!
OK. NOLAN, I'll bring one in and show (and tell) ya!
When NOLAN saw it...
NOLAN WAS obviously WOWED!
Love at first sight..."THE IPOD MAXI"!
"BUT WILL IT REALLY WORK?"
"OH, I dunno NOLAN, this baby is old and may go up in smoke if we plug it in. I had already told him the wire may contain some famous voice like President Roosevelt or batman or somebody... so the pressure was on to check it out. But if it burns the fun is definitely over for good!
OK. NOLAN but don't let WALLY see you getting the fire extinguiser off the wall.
you da man to plug it in!
plug it in!
"HOUSTON we have a motor running".
But no sound
and what's that smell of burnt marshmallows...
N-O-L-A-N PULL THE PLUG
that was a close call...
"SHOW AND TELL" OVER and out...
10-4 good buddy!
"Have a Nice Day"
(Nolan..Wally smelled the marshmallows..I think we're busted)
