|I used to work for a shop that handled repairs for a company that sold service contracts on cheap consumer-grade keyboards such as you might find in "catalog" stores. You can imagine the level of intelligence of people who would pay good money for a service contract on a $100 keyboard :-)
Anyway, the notes that came with the broken keyboards when they were shipped in provided a lot of comic relief around the shop; the more amusing ones were displayed on the wall. One of my favorites came in with a Yamaha portable that had most of its middle keys smashed to bits. The note was written in large, ill-formed letters scrawled in magic marker:
"Dear sir... my son done dropped bowling ball on this keyboard and now it dont works"

That guy must *really* want that Rivera.

|I repair and rent P.A. systems here in new england.
One day, at a local club, the headline act was an oriental Heavy Metal Act I've never heard of, (but ended up mixing)
Before the gig the band chose to hang in the banquet room down the hall, which was hosting a sci-fi convention..as only their manager spoke english, He thought it would be appropriate to teach their vocalist to say a familiar Star Trek Borg phrase as an openning line.
The music began..the singer walks out and blurbs:
"RESISTORS ARE FUTONS, BEGIN CYMBOLATION"
