After the third attempt to get our copier model in the office so they  
can scam us into paying for their copier supplies an unsuspecting  
telemarketer called and caught me in a playful mood.  They did the  
usual song and dance asking for the model number on the copier in the  
office. I boldly stated it's a Hal-9000.  The telemarketer didn't  
understand or compute what I was saying.  So she asked again and I  
stated Hal-9000.  She then stated she had a Hal-9000 toner order that  
was cancelled in our area and who did our purchasing?  I stated Ray  
Bradbury and hung up.  Now wouldn't it be cool if everyone responded  
in the same fashion?
