Yes it works!

I saw this printer sitting out on the street a few weeks ago. I love the subtle irony here, assuming that the sign was actually printed with the printer being tossed. It’s decent irony, but not perfect irony. (For the record, this is perfect irony – Billionaire roofing exec dies after fall through roof.)

As a sidenote, when I was processing the photo for the web I noticed that there was something printed on the back of the sign. After flipping the image and bumping up the contrast, (as well as saying the word “ENHANCE” a few times), we’re offered a fascinating glimpse into the first draft of this sign. It basically just said the word “WORKS” broken up onto two lines. Why do you think they changed it?

    Pricks couldn’t offer up the power cord. Wouldn’t work too well without electricity.

    “Computer, go to coordinates 34 mark 975 and zoom 300 percent.”

    “Hmmm… something appears to printed on the other side of the sheet.”

    “Computer, increase contrast 50 percent.”

    “Bingo, somebody get Langley on the phone. Tell them we have a situation.”

    they probably wrote YES IT WORKS from the start but the font was too big and the whole sentence didn’t fit the page so they thought … WOW that was stupid! … n they decreased the font n printed it again on the same paper…as paper is very expensive these days… what suggests they could be Jewish ..(jk)

    It’s in fact very complex in this busy life
    to listen news on TV, so I just use web for that purpose, and obtain the most up-to-date information.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
