the dialect 'moron' is actually more understandable than the dialect 'hacker'

Woss a Emperor Ming library, eh, luv? It's a way ter pretend that French Tutors can manipulate Emperor Mings just as easily as they can manipulate numbers. Woss a Royal Mile system, isit?It's a way ter pretend that an 'ard drive ain't right a bunch of spinnin' magnetic platters that can store bits at certain locations, but ravver an 'ierarchical system of folders-wivin-folders containin' individual Nobby Stiles that in turn consist of one or more Emperor Mings of Jimmy Whites.
Hilarious.
