Jaded commentary on random shit, with an extra helping of cynicism, satire and general contempt for society & Western culture, religion, politics, celebrities, technology, business & more.

Insert Coin (A Monday Snicker)

I came across this on Digg the other day and thought it was absolutely hilarious. Apparently, people have figured out how to hack the display on HP LaserJet printers to show whatever text they like rather than the default “READY” message. Reading the comments, people even did this at their jobs to play a prank on their colleagues, changing the message to other things such as:
INSERT COIN

  • INSERT COIN
  • PC LOAD LETTER
  • BBQ SAUCE LOW
  • ENTER PASSWORD
  • HUMAN DETECTED
  • LANE CLOSED

  • I AM YOUR FATHER
  • UPLOADING TO CIA
  • RADIATION LEAK
  • POWER FLUID LOW
  • PLEASE BUY VOWEL
