THE EXCITING NEW WORLD OF DATA ENTRY

Early 80s computers were confusing and scary. Luckily, Steve Allen was there to help you laugh your computer fears away. With a computer, you can do anything from data entry to a slightly different kind of data entry!


Chicago! Don't forget that we will be at the Hungry Brain tonight showing spooooky new videos and the terrifyingly terrible feature, Boarding House! Plus a special bonus puppet show at 8:30 pm! Did we mention it's FREE? All the details HERE!

That was a lovely outfit she was wearing.

At night she's just a normal person but during the day she changes into, Super Secretary! She can make and bring you coffee in under 3 minutes. Now, what computer can do that?

Can I also get porn on a computer?

Computers back then were pretty damn amazing. They were apparently able to serve as time machines and import her from 1939 - accent, outfit, hair, and all!

I suppose I just don't see why to buy one of these if I have paper and a calculator instead. I can also power down my calculator, you know.

I tried to stick in a dictionary somehow using the hand motion shown... why didn't it work?

I'm so very glad my com-pu-tor allots me time to do important things like bake pies, darn socks and scrub floors. You know, all the things that make a woman's life so fulfilling!

You are right.

Data entry is such a vast and exploring field that we learn new things every day.

Nancy Reagan! Thought you gave up the acting when Ronnie went into politics.

I think I prefer How To Make Love To Steve Allen, The Joy of Cooking Steve Allen, Journey To The Center of Steve Allen, and Steve Allen's Advice To Marty more than this.

Also, I think my captcha tried to insult me - it said "trard".

Heather said...

Scamps, Captcha has been rather cheeky lately. I blame the Illuminati.

Heather said...

Case in point: my Captcha word was "reenis."

YES, Katherine Hepburn-Accent Lady! YES, wear the silver pants-suit! PLEASE WEAR THE SILVER PANTS SUIT, and then say the words "haahd drahve" a few more times. For me.

Lol "computers and you for the tight ass uber republican yuppies edition"

Christopher said...

Mo-DEM? What is this... Mo-DEM of which you speak?

No, seriously, what would you even do with a modem back then? Download ASCII porn?

Scamps, when I added a friend on facebook, the captcha said "humping grandchildren". Now, blogger's captcha said "goidan" *refresh* *refresh* "nodick" *refresh* *refresh* "retard" *refresh* *refresh* "faark" *refresh* *refresh* "sorre".

Apparently facebook and google found this amusing.

Heh, that's Jayne Meadows, Steve's wife. She always looked like a plastic cut-out to me.

No, silly. You play Global Thermonuclear War.

Toby said...

Noo, Vagabond, noooooo. That could turn out terribly. Use it to change your grades and then kick a beer bottle down the street or something. Stay away from "Global Thermonuclear War"

Cods on all my friends? I really don't understand computers.

Cody said...

Is that Fred Willard? I think that's Fred Willard.
