    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
