    hopefully, on your ignore list
    So you Yankees can laugh with us, not at us.

    Dear Consumers:

    It has come to our attention that a few copies of the WINDOWS 98 SOUTHERN EDITION may have accidentally been shipped outside of the South. If you have one of these, you may need some help understanding its' commands. The Southern Edition may be recognized by the unique opening screen. It reads: "WINDERS 98" with a background picture of General Robert E. Lee superimposed on a Confederate flag. It is shipped with a Dukes of Hazzard screen-saver.

    Please also note:

    "The "Recycle Bin" is labeled "Outhouse"

    "My Computer" is called "This Dern Contraption"

    "Dial up Networking" is called "Good Ol' Boys"

    "Control Panel" is known as the "The Dashboard"

    "Hard Drive" is referred to as "4-Wheel Drive"

    "Floppies" are "them little ol' plastic disc thangs"

    Instead of an "error message" a "garbage bag and roll of duct tape" pops up.

    CHANGES IN TERMINOLOGY IN SOUTHERN EDITION:

    We regret any inconvenience it may have caused if you
    received a copy of the SOUTHERN EDITION. You may return it
    to Microsoft for a replacement version. I hope this helps
    all y'all!

    Sincerely,



    Billy Bob Gates
