Not-So-Super Supercomputers

Sometimes I think the "kids" these days
As soon as it shows its imperfect ways
they want to trash it like techie polluters.

Like Cookie Monster, the next generation
wants what it wants, how it wants, when it wants.
I feel like I'm having an old age revelation
as failure to meet expectations inevitably daunts.

I'm sharing this rhyme and video for You Tube Tuesday.
Come join in the fun!  It's a fun way to play.

Josh from "Its Tiger Time" invented You Tube Tuesday so we could each share one video a week which we found to be fun, inspiring or otherwise noteworthy.  If you choose to participate, don't forget to leave your links in my comments section (so I can come visit you) and on Josh's page (so you can be part of the contest).


  1. haha so true
    When it does not work
    They think it's a jerk
    And check it out the window
    Then whine and moan until a new one decides to show

  2. How cute ,,may I have one too....As always...XOXOXO'


  3. Great one, That is right, I'm bad about it too though, I must admit.

  4. Awwww, love Cookie Monster but I know what you mean. Things have sure changed.

  5. Sometimes I wish I was more like Cookie Monster LOL. Too much to learn and when it doesn't work, it is so frustrating.

  6. Awhhh, how cute Rachel...wonder if he needed a glass of milk to go along with that LOL.

  7. @Pat - Yep. I'm at the cell phone store pretty often for my "real" job and see lots of kids ditching their phones because of glitches.

    @Bongo - I have the same phone as you... unless you ditched it already due to glitches. LOL :)

    @Jan - I'm glad you enjoyed it! Be patient with your electronics, ok? :)

    @Jessica - I'm glad you liked it! Thanks for visiting. :)

    @Mari - Cookie Monster is the best! I wish I could watch him more often. :)

    @Mary - Hehe. It is a lot to learn and frustrating when it doesn't do what we want. I just try to be patient. :)

    @Anna - I'm sure he wanted the computer to make milk next! :)

    @Alpana - Computers are a lesson in patience. I love and hate them. :)

  8. nice...love me some cookie monster...but what you say is true...newer faster better they jump quick to the next...

  9. Good ole Sesame Street always teaches a life lesson. This is great.

  10. "oooh oooh ooooh! But me want a cookie NOW!"

    I think he got just what he deserved: a "computer chip" cookie! hahahaah!

  11. I think sometimes kids need to get away from technie gadgets - playtime now is so complicated.

  12. @Brian - Cookie Monster is the man. I learn from him whenever I can. :)

    @Laurie - I'm glad you enjoyed your Sesame Street lesson of the day. Stop by again sometime, ok? :)

    @johnallenrichter - LOL. I totally agree he got what he deserved. The things people demand sometimes leave me unnerved. :)

    @Heaven - I think kids should get no tech stuff at all... but then we'd have to take them outside to run, climb, trip and fall. :)

    @Percy - I'm glad you enjoyed my rhyme. Do stop by again sometime. :)

  13. it's amazing how old this seems :) great stuff - more history found at - http://www.tbaoo.com/2011/10/25/listen-to-nobody-youtube-tuesday/

  15. @ayala - I'm glad you liked it. :)

    @tbaoo - It made me feel a bit old too and I'm a bit younger than you. :)
