    I don’t know anything about you except this:
    You have never worked in a restaurant.

    Chad: Well, I don’t know anything about you except this: you have never worked on an IBM Portable PC. I have, and I can tell you that few restaurants have tables big enough to park one of those things on to begin with.

    How about getting facts before you start making accusations?

    The fact is, this is a cafeteria at the 2007 SXSW Interactive Conference in Austin, on the third floor of the Austin Convention Center. All they did was reserve a table for dining only. There were lots of other tables that were crammed with laptop users.

    But that’s not nearly as interesting, is it?

    How about getting facts before you start making accusations?

    The fact is, this is a pop culture/humor website. All I did was crack a joke based on a picture. There are lots of posts on this website that are crammed with jokes just like this one. I mean, seriously, dude: I just referred to a xylophonist as the evil Mallet Master.

    But that would take a sense of humor and a bit of thought before hitting the Say It! button, wouldn’t it?

    P.S. Feel free to come back and snark some more. I like the pageviews.
