Is Flash About Dead?

September 15, 2011 Leave a comment

I was perusing Slashdot a little while ago, and I came upon the post “Windows 8 Won’t Support Plug-Ins; the End of Flash?”. What I found funny, besides the possibly premature jumping of conclusions regarding Flash’s demise, was one of the comments. I want to post it verbatim, as it is such a great comment.

This comes from Slashdot user killmenow.


Adobe Flash: I’m not dead.

The Internet: ‘Ere, he says he’s not dead.

Google: Yes he is.

Flash: I’m not.

The Internet: He isn’t.

Opera Software: Well, he will be soon, he’s very ill.

Flash: I’m getting better.

Mozilla: No you’re not, you’ll be stone dead in a moment.

The Internet: Well, I can’t take him like that. It’s against regulations.

Flash: I don’t want to go on the cart.

Apple: Oh, don’t be such a baby.

The Internet: I can’t take him.

Flash: I feel fine.

W3C: Oh, do us a favor.

The Internet: I can’t.

Google: Well, can you hang around for a couple of minutes? He won’t be long.

The Internet: I promised I’d be at the Robinsons’. They’ve lost nine today.

Apple: Well, when’s your next round?

The Internet: Thursday.

Flash: I think I’ll go for a walk.

Mozilla: You’re not fooling anyone, you know. Isn’t there anything you could do?

Flash: I feel happy. I feel happy.

[Microsoft glances up and down the street furtively, then silences Flash with his a whack of his club]

W3C: Ah, thank you very much.

The Internet: See you on Thursday.


That is fantastic Monty Python quoting/paraphrasing, if you ask me.
