Just when Stan was about to play his abacus card.
What? No rotary telephone? Or better yet, telephone booth?
I found that a slide rule could be better than a calculator for some applications. Used to use it when selling foreign currency. Set the slide once and you’re all set for, “So how much do I get for USD100? USD150?…”
Well the Frog he cut the cards
And he dealt them each a hand of five
And for the Bull, he was praying hard
Or that train he’d have to drive
Well the Sheep he had three aces and a king
And the Bull, he was running for a straight
He had the queen and the knave and nine and ten of spades
All he needed was the eight
And then the Bull he called for one more card
But he drew the diamond eight
And the Sheep said to the Bull
I believe you’ve got it straight
So deal me one for the time has come
To see who’ll be the king of this place
But as he spoke, from beneath his cloak
He slipped another ace
Wait! Did someone check the scoring with an ‘Obsolete Game’ scoring ap on their phone?
I still have my high school physics class slide rule…
