Simple-Talk Caption Competition 10

Some suggestions to get you started:

  • The new computing syllabus is great, but naughty children have to write their software in ZX Spectrum Assembler.
  • Now Lucy, this is a keyboard. To get an A, you’ll have to learn to type 60wpm while holding it like this.

  • Do you know why we’re taking this away? Mr. Morgan saw your avatar on World of Warcraft during school hours again.

  • Now students, this key is F8. It’s purpose has been lost in the sands of time.

    Young Antonin ignored Miss Ratchet’s explanation, and dreamed of a new world keyboard with which he would write his symphony in Symphony.

    We’ve found that students learn touch typing much quicker when we don’t supply a monitor.

    Michael Gove’s computing syllabus was implemented with great success.

    Mabel; Miss Ratchet and I will stand here and watch whilst you delete the data from the school payroll application that you pasted up on a Russian site.

    Lucy:”OH! That’s BASIC”.

    The professor told me I would be able to play this instrument if I got a pupil to implement a midi interface for it. Any volunteers?

    I’m sorry, Miss, but I still say that’s the wrong device for Guitar Hero.

    Don’t be surprised, this is an input device you will use to draw pictures. See elephant, lion…

    “Now see here Lucy.”, scolded Miss Mabel. “I’m going to have to confiscate your Bluetooth keyboard again until you learn how to write a proper CTE.”

  12. Herman says:

    I am sorry Miss, next time I will do my math with a pencil and paper again.
    Mam: I told you Lucy, you should have taken your tablet, it is less obvious.

  14. Wait, you mean all that handwriting practice was a waste!?

  15. BillTalada says:

    Now kids, when the screen turns blue, you must press CTRL + ALT + DELETE. It works just like turning over an Etch-A-Sketch and shaking it.

    “Ada, Ms. Babbage tells me you’ve been writing poetry on your keyboard again, I’ve warned you what will happen. You don’t want to grow up to be like your father.”
