It's been said that if you take 100 monkeys and put them in a room with 100 typewriters, they'll eventually type up all of Shakespeare's plays.

21st century version: If you take 100 cats and put them in a room with 100 PCs/laptops, they'll eventually write up all of Shakespeare's plays.

The poem is Laugh and the world laughs with you; weep and you weep alone. For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth, but has troubles enough of its own.

Thank you. You can go back to the twisted sayings now. [/hijack]
