Funny Side of the Moon             

The Ultimate Computer stood at the end of the Ultimate Computer Company's production line. At which point the guided tour eventually arrived. The salesman stepped forward to give his prepared demo.

"This", he said, "is the Ultimate Computer. It will give an intelligent answer to any question you may care to ask it".

At which point a Clever Dick stepped forward ( there is one in every crowd ) and spoke into the Ultimate Computer's microphone. "Where is my father"? he asked.

There was a whirring of wheels and flashing of lights that the manufacturers always use to impress lay people, and then a little card popped out.

On it were printed the words "Fishing off Florida".

Clever Dick laughed. "Actually", he said, "my father is dead!" It had been a trick question!!

The salesman, carefully chosen for his ability to think fast on his feet, immediately replied that he was sorry the answer was unsatisfactory, but as computers were precise, perhaps he might care to rephrase his question and try again?

Clever Dick thought, went to the Ultimate Computer and this time said, "Where is my mother's husband?"

Once again there was a whirring of wheels and a flashing of lights.

Again a little card popped out. Printed on it were the words: "Dead. But your father is still fishing off Florida”

The dwarf nodded and pulled out a Personal Digital Assistant. To Rick, something was just wrong with the universe to see this dwarf-like creature in bare feet holding a palmtop computer, but his comment to that effect merely drew a shrug from the dwarf.
"Justa because I sells time donna mean that I should be wastin' it on paperwork.......

When he does, everyone is delighted and he returns home to his family and his new brother David. However, things do not run smoothly and David is unwillingly abandoned.
