“The Day That XP Died” by Dave Methvin

Dave Methvin of Information Week pens this notable gem of a parody of Don McLean’s American Pie titled, The Day That XP Died.   It’s not really feasible to quote a snippet of a song, so here it is:

Bye, bye, to the XP supply
And Vista, what a nightmare, it was quite a black eye
Windows 7 now will be the rallying cry
Thinking this will make my new PC fly
This will make my new PC fly

Did you back up all your drive
Just in case the install takes a dive
Cause the experts tell you so

Now do you have faith in Microsoft
Can Seven keep those guys aloft
And can Ballmer just avoid some more layoffs

Well I know that you’re not fond of him
Cause the balance sheet was pretty grim
It wasn’t all his fault
The economy came to a halt

Well, it may seem like Steve’s a sad lame duck
But this brand new Windows isn’t Vista (yuck)
So I knew he had changed his luck
The day that XP died

I just rebooted

Bye, bye to the XP pig sty
Bought a new Windows 7 at my local Best Buy
And several geeks were standing very nearby
Singing this will be the one to apply
This will be the one to apply

I saw a guy who did IT
And I asked him if he liked XP
But he just smiled and turned away
Then I went down to the retail store
Where I bought XP some years before
But the man there said that Seven is the way

So all around the PC scene
A brand new Windows fast and clean
And “Vista” won’t be spoken
Since it was badly broken

And the one man I despise the most
That Mac ad guy, his complaints are toast
The PC guy can finally boast
The day that XP died

So bye, bye, to the XP supply
Microsoft pulled the plug, so don’t bother to cry
XP had a good run, that I just won’t deny, but
Thinking this will be the day that it dies

Via Breitbart, Barney the White House Dog does what others often fail to do, defend W.

Reuters political reporter Jon Decker had finished an interview with MSNBC around 10:30 a.m. when he saw Barney and his handler. After getting permission to pet the dog, Decker said Barney snapped and chomped down on his right index finger and broke the skin.

No, that’s not a double negative.

Was at a “T” interesection this morning en route to work (you know, where you get to a stop light and can only turn left or right). 

Driver coming from my right was going to turn left.  His light was RED. 

He pulled out and STOPPED right in front of me (was it because the light was red and he was confused?), meanwhile, my light was GREEN. 

I held the horn down and threw up my hands.  “Whiskey…tango…” 

He sat there waiting to complete his left turn, oblivious to the fact the car opposite of of him making a right turn had the YIELD sign (and the even more obvious fact I had the GREEN light). 

He never reacted to me.

I couldn’t help but to recall Carlos Mencia’s skit on Asian drivers.  To paraphrase:

“Asians.  You are some of the smartest, most talented, brilliant, gifted minded people in the world.  You excel as a people in areas of math and science and technology that other people can only hope to match.  BUT WHAT THE HELL HAPPENS TO YOU BEHIND THE WHEEL OF A CAR I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND!!!


Hey, I can make an Asian joke.  I have Asian friends.  That’s my excuse.  (OK, well, I have one.)

Kinda like when whites say they can make black jokes because they have black friends. “Hey, I have lots of black friends like… um…Charlie my mailman…and uh… this guy on my floor frosh yea of college and.. uh.”

Just stop right there.
