    Dear Consumas:

    It has come ta our attention dat a coupola copies of the WINDOWS XP/BROOKLYN EDITION may have accidentally bin shipped outsida Broooklyn. If ya got one a dese, you may need some help understandin' da commands.

    Da Brooklyn edition may be recognized by da unique openin' screen. It reads: "WINDAS XP," wit a background picture of Grand Army Plaza.

    When you start da program, instead of da usual "harpy, stringy" music, you hear da teme from da Godfadda. It is also shipped wit a Sopranos screen sava.

    Please also note:

    -Recycle Bin is labeled "Staten Island."
    -My Computer is called "My Friggin' Computa."
    -The Inbox is referred to as "Da Trunk."
    -Deleted Items are referred to as "Wacked,"
    -"Erased," or "Rubbed Out."
    -Dial up Networking is called "Da Bar."
    -Control Panel is known as the "Da Bosses."
    -Performin' an "illegal operation" is known as "enhancin'
    the family business" and will actually maximize da
    program instead of shuttin' it down.
    -Hard Drive is referred to as "Da BQE Rush Hour."
    -Instead of an error message a "You ain't gonna friggin' believe
    dis!" pops up.

    Also note dat any voice recognition software run on da BROOKLYN

    Sounds pretty bad, but not as bad as Lindows Linux I got for free with new computer.

    How about Windows Longhorn Edition (as in Texas, not the project name for one of Microsoft's real OS's)? This sort of joke recurrs over and over in various forms with only the phrases changed. It's alright, but not necessarily too funny if you've already seen one of the various strains.

    If he's serious I think he has a point mainly because there aren't as many Italiens as we think in Brooklyn, but if he's just being drole then that's ok too, infact I encourage that!!!
    BTW- Good joke!

    Hehe, thius is quite original, and hilarious. Lighten up, CG, were making fun of your accent, not your City, or Suburb, or whatever the case may be.
