Indeed. It is a pretty old joke.... But it's always pleasant on the eyes. I have no complaints. ;)

So.... I just got an email saying "someone in particular" is reporting a post in this thread that's three months old.
Based on the general theme of this thread being "jokes", the particular post in question seems pretty tame compared to a lot of the posts that would have been more "hurtful" (in the event you're an extra sensitive kind of human being) than the one specifically pointed out to me. I mean, I really hope the person that reported this simply push that button by accident, as the content of the general conversion on the bus taking my kids to school is more abrasive than that particular  post. If it truly offended you, then you might want to remove yourself from the internet and all forms of social media. If there was a place I could send you a link to purchase some thicker skin, I would certainly do so.
Please advise me on how to proceed, as I'm just a bit baffled on what to so at this point.

Really.....   looks jus like what I have at home.  Since Iím an audio cheapskate, I may dump the pieces in a plastic bag in a bucket with ice. Just keep it cold for another 10-20 k years.

A must have for older home like mine.
Must admit though I did replace the older sockets with newer to alleviate the $45.00 plugs
which means I have a number of them I will sell for a used price of $25.00 each (including shipping).
Now that's a deal right there. Bob's $.99 are not quantum (knock offs).

Why did the capacitor kiss the diode?

He just couldn't resistor.

Corny in a funny way.
