It’s Sunday, and– as you well know– we hate working on Sundays here at Comedy Examiner HQ. But a new purchase has provoked us back into the office (you can read more about this below), and now we’ve got a new round of Funny Photos to share. Of what new purchase do we speak, and what can you expect from Comedy Examiner HQ in the week ahead? Find out below, my gentle Examiner readers…
Today, your humble Comedy Examiner picked up an absolutely gorgeous MacBook Pro, which means that your humble Comedy Examiner just spent several frustrating hours trying to wrap his head around a non-PC operating system. All of a sudden, things that used to be second nature to me– downloading a photo, for instance, or navigating the dashboard settings for one’s desktop– now make me feel like a helpless, possibly braindead chimp trying to operate a graphic calculator.
However! After much mucking around (and more than a few crying tantrums), it appears that I’ve finally worked out all the kinks. At least, I think I have. And what better way to test out my newfound Mac-navigating abilities than to run a very special Sunday edition of Funny Photos?
Putting together an installment of Funny Photos seems like it’d be fairly easy, but it’s actually got about fifty-three moving parts: one must snag the photo out of an email, edit it to fit lodeplus.com’s (somewhat Draconian) slideshow restrictions, save it in the correct folder with the appropriate tag, apply all the necessary labels, tags, and what-have-you’s within the actual slideshow, and so on. Again: not hard, just tedious, and when you’re using an operating system you’ve never worked on before, “tedious” can become “difficult enough to provoke murderous rampages” in the blink of an eye.
All of this is a very elaborate way of saying this: there’s no better way of knowing if one is using their newly-purchased computer correctly than to randomly hammer a bunch of keys, close one’s eyes, cross one’s fingers, and mash down the “Publish” button. Could be that we’ve got this figured out; could be that you’ll never even see this edition of Funny Photos (there seems to be a very real chance that– upon hitting the “Publish” button– our fancy new laptop might just asplode). If this doesn’t work, blame Steve Jobs (God rest his soul).
Anyway, let’s get to the ha-ha: as always, today’s Funny Photos are embedded over there on the left, and all you gotta do is click on the “Slideshow” box (man, you guys have it easy).
Note: Do be aware that the coming week will likely find us churning out material a little slower than normal. Until we’ve got this strange new device figured out, we’re gonna have to take baby steps (if anyone wants to come over to the Comedy Examiner’s house and give him some tips, that’d be much appreciated).
