Here is a collection of silly things I have collected over the years. I have much more than is currently on this page, it will get here eventually...

Boot It (sung to M. Jackson's "Beat It". Author unknown.

Variant of 12 Days of Christmas Don't ask, you had to be there. By Jeff Burhans.

Send In the Clones By Jeff Burhans

Variation on "My Favorite Things", I'll wait to find out if he wants credit on this one. 8)

One Night in Hancock An absolute masterpiece by Jeff Burhans and Mike Burden. (original is from Chess)

Old PFRC Constitution The real (former) constitution of the Michigan Tech Science Fiction and Fantasy Society, a student group at Michigan Technological University. Legand has it, this was submitted to the dean of students as a joke. He saw it, thought it was outragiously funny, and signed it as a joke, and sent it back. Then everyone realized something: this made it OFFICIAL! And so it was, for a number of years until someone with more sense than humor forced it to be changed. I'm sure nothing was quite the same again.

Here's one I discovered recently, when I received my OpenBSD 2.6 CD-ROMs.  First, I opened the CD case, and saw what was probably the most creative use of the CD design I had seen to that point.  I should probably explain that the Blowfish is the security mascot of the OpenBSD project.  Then, I flipped the two-CD carrier over, and saw Disk 2's graphics...  I will *NOT* explain this. 8-)

PHONEANS.TXT -- A GREAT way to answer your phone.  Recommended only for those with Caller ID!  I've actually managed to get people to laugh, then hang up on me, not realizing that it wasn't a recording.  Or at least one person, twice.

GIRLFRND.TXT -- A humorous look at software and relationships.

PENTIUM.TXT -- Remember the infamous Pentium Bug? The lighter side...

Ask Dr. Computer Science, Michigan Tech, and the Detroit Free Press

The following deserve a little explanation. A group of friends of mine were sitting in a bar in Houghton, Michigan, where we all went to school (Michigan Technological University) in late 1988. The idea of a parody of the Public Radio International show "Ask Dr. Science" came up, and being we were all involved with computers in one way or another, we started coming up with ideas for stupid computer questions for our "Ask Dr. Computer Science". Steve King, a person of far greater creativity than I shall ever possess, jotted down our silly questions and wrote the following:
ASK-DRCS.TXT -- The Original Ask Dr. Computer Science article.
Now, unknown to us, sitting a few tables over, was a writer from the Detroit Free Press doing an article on life at Michigan Tech. This is the article he wrote, I think there are parts which are very, very entertaining when compared to the ASK-DRCS article above. In case you don't catch it, he wrote down some of our Ask Dr. Computer Science questions as serious, day-to-day Tech talk!
SNOWHOW.TXT -- An article by Neal Rubin of the Detroit Free Press

TWINKIE.TXT -- Grad student research on Twinkie Physics.

OPCODES.TXT -- A rather large list of humorous opcodes, begging a few Microsoft jokes.

GATESHM.TXT -- A dialog between Bill Gates and the builder of his new home

Much, much more yet to come from the Holland Humor Archives!!!!  (But, don't wait up...)
