These are very funny. My favorite is P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode. S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode. - although my loudest laugh may have come from the midget. Thanks for linking up :)

Haha, oh how I wish I could answer people's questions and complaints like that at work. Suspect I'd be fired for it though.
