Encyclopedia.

"Rubber Chicken, see Custard Pie"

I college, I took a C++ programming course that had a good textbook
(though I can't remember the title). When using the index, I found the
entry "Adams, Douglas p. 42." There was nothing relevant to Douglas
Adams on page 42, but I loved the joke.

Found by a friend of a friend buried deep in the otherwise unremarkable
manual for a new loudspeaker:



'Caution - Never connect multiple power amps to one loud-speaker. Doing
so could cause the very fabric of reality to unravel, sending the entire
universe into oblivion. Worse yet, it could destroy your amplifiers and
your loudspeaker.'



Good thing he always reads the instructions carefully, or we could have
been in trouble!



Is it Friday yet?
