Dave!The Dave dropped his rugged frame into the uncomfortable chair with a grunt. His manly hands banged away at the computer's keyboard, tracking the shipment through the byways of cyberspace. After weeks of delays, today was the day his new PowerBook was due to arrive. Finally, all those bastards would pay.

As he waited for the requested information to appear, The Dave's testosterone-laden body heaved a sigh of indifference. The world may be going to hell around him, but the PowerBook was all that mattered now. He was blind to everything else.

Until the tracking data starting running across his display...


Dave Cry

Trapped in Indianapolis for "International Shipment Release" by FedEx, there would be no new PowerBook delivered today.

The Dave pounds his massive hammer-like fist on the desk in a fit of unbridled rage. How dare they?

How. Dare. They.

Time passes, but the shock doesn't. Drunk on disappointment, The Dave staggers into the uncaring arms of a cruel night. Throwing caution to the wind, he drives home without his seat-belt on, laughing in the face of danger. The fine for driving un-belted is $101, but The Dave cares not.

Bring it on Johnny Law. Bring it on.

  2. Peggy Archer says:

    Sorry to hear that, Dave.

    Just think of how happy you’ll be when it does get here!

  3. trix says:

    poor dave.

    i’m sure some junk food would be most timely now.

  4. Anthony says:

    It’s only a mac. :p lol

  5. MRKisThatKid says:

    OMG you have got to release that one as a poster! Pleeease, add it to the duck store now!

    Just think, all these delays will make powerbook day just that bit more satisfying. All that lovely 2-finger scrolling goodness waiting for you.

  6. Neil T. says:

    Dude, it’s only a laptop >;-)

    (okay… okay… Powerbooks are more than just laptops… but still…)

  7. Neil says:

    International shipping release? We have all this illegal immigration, and they won’t let your Powerbook in?

  8. Nez says:

    If ya want, I could take a coupla the boys to the airport and pay those FedEx bums a “little visit” if ya get my drift.

  9. Chaz says:

    On the upside, you have something to look forward… still. On the downside, you’re having to wait for your new lappy. These are conflicted times we live in.

  10. Patrick says:

    I’d contact some Hollywood exec’s about this if I were you – I think it would make a sensational movie hit for Christmas 2006. I’m thinking a crossover between “Sin City” and “Pride and Prejudice”. How ’bout?

  11. sandra says:

    Later that night…

    The Dave, walking down a dark apocalyptic-looking street, drinking straight from a bottle of whiskey, encounters his new arch-enemy…

  12. MRKisThatKid says:

    I dread to think what Darcy get’s up to in Sin and Sincerity, but whatever it is I don’t think Colin Firth will be up to the job somehow.

  13. Belinda says:

    The Dave scares me, with his reckless abandon and blatant disregard for law and order.

  14. I assuming you didn’t get it Friday either, sorry.

    Hopefully it’ll be something to start your week off on Monday 🙂

    A bit of foreshadowing about this did occur on your Nov. 7 post…

  15. Alessandra says:

    I hope you’re having a power(book) weekend! 🙂

  16. apryl says:

    exactly the same thing happened with my husband and his iPod. he cried and mumbled for days; promising his first-born son while tracking its location. 5 days later, he posted about its arrival.

    our home life went back to normal. whatever normal is.

  17. SJ says:

    You drove without your seatbelt. Lordy, just saying that makes me hot. You drove without your seatbelt! Was the feeling of giddy freedom almost more than you could bear, or were you too bummed to notice?
