Computer trouble During a World Bridge Teams Championship
A man enters a computer store.
I want to buy a computer
Certainly Sir, what kind of computer do you have in mind?
The very best you have, money’s no object
Well Sir, I can highly recommend this one. Is our very latest and will work out the answer to any problem you care to name. Would you like a demonstration?
Yes. Ask it where my father is now and what’s he doing
The man types the question and the machine answers: Your father is in the World Bridge Teams Championship, playing 7NT vulnerable doubled and redoubled.
I don’t think much of that, my father died 20 years ago
Oh, Sir I am sorry, I must have made a mistake in my typing, let’s have another try
OK…said the man
This was the new answer: Your father is in the World Bridge Teams Championship, and has just gone down three in 7NT vulnerable doubled and redoubled. Your mother’s husband died 20 years ago.
