Spam, wonderful spam...
In the Junk Mail Manager Summary from my ISP today there are the usual messages from a wide variety of banks that my internet banking will be disabled if I don’t click on a link and give all my passwords to the Ukrainian Mafiya, claims that I could earn a living typing at home if I could slow my typing down to 30 w.p.m., and offers to eliminate my non-existent debt. There is also one that caused me to raise my eyebrows.

‘Update your Penis’.

I know it’s a 1953 model but as far as I know the design hasn’t changed since then. It seems to have a perfectly adequate amount of RAM. What changes would the update make? Most importantly, perhaps, is it hardware or software?

LOL!!!!!!!!

I wish they wouldn't assume I have a penis...

Girlie bits don't seem to be offered updates. Maybe there's no hope...

Surely that depends on how you handle it.

I'll get my coat.

I'm thinking it might be the complete package.

And can you install it yourself or would you have to leave it at the repair shop? And if you had to leave it would they give you one to take home and use until yours is ready?

I think that's really an issue between you and your good lady.

I just wish they'd stop offering to enlarge mine.

*giggles*

Speaking of spams I keep receiving junk mails that offer me pills and various medicines.

If you are a robot with an outdated penis I must be a very sick person...

I guess, there comes a time in every man's life where an update is in order!
....But I'm just wondering how to get one!
Do those Updates come or support with those fancy Plug-and-Play things?

;)

Support is provided...

1953? you're the same age as my mother!

The new models get better mileage, and are equipped with self-inflating ... um ... airbags, for protection.

I really don't want to explain why I'm snickering right now to the other people in the room! I needed a laugh; thanks for that!

Not even touching that one with a ten foot pole.
