I came across this classic in British TV humour and decided to share it.

I know that @Kendra @Laurie @LizK among many others have loving connections with Fruit.

It's awesome XD

I wonder what would happen, if he would re-boot the eggsbox?

I watched that video years ago, when a friend sent the link.

Alice V.  Yes, if you're not familiar with English and British humour, you might not get it.  A lot of British humour is implicit, so if you don't know the background, you won't get the joke.  It tends to me more intelligent than the blatant stuff that's closer to stupidity than humour that we so often see these days.

I'm a 67 year old AMAB who has been thinking about SRS for many years.  I also was a  full cross dresser for a few years.  I wear a bra, pantyhose and nail polish daily because it just feels right.

As I said, my problem is more linguistic. Probably you didn't get what I said due my bad explanation, sorry :)

We often just talking that way and usually don't call it humor but it still funny.

I think that all of the jokes were based on English puns, which someone might not get if they don't know all of the meanings of the words.  In this sketch,

blackberry = kind of fruit = brand of smartphone;
juice = fruit juice = electrical power;
frozen = icy cold = 'phone or computer screen not changing or updating;
orange = kind of fruit = mobile network company;
black spots = dark patches = places with no mobile 'phone or Internet coverage;
desktop = top of desk = large personal computer that permanently stays on a desk;
mouse = small rodent = device for moving cursor and selecting objects on computer screen;
drag = move something by pulling it = use the mouse to move something on a computer screen;

I'm not sure what "drag the blackberry to the track" means.  Is it something to do with trackpads, also known as touch pads?  Perhaps someone else could interpret this one.

launch = set something in motion, e.g. launch a rocket into space = start or introduce a computer, 'phone or software application;
windows = panes of glass = Windows Operating System;
date = kind of fruit = calendar or diary day;
apple = kind of fruit = brand of computer;
dongle = in this context, suggestive of penis (sometimes called a dong) = usb device to e.g. connect to the Internet;
booting = kicking = starting computer;
crashed =  smashed into something = computer operating system stopped working;
eggs box (sounds a bit like Xbox) = box of eggs = brand of gaming console.

When I wrote that, I thought about a lot of comedians and comics, from back in the '60s, 70s and earlier, one of them being Tim Conway.  Sadly he passed away today.  His skits on the Carol Burnett show were priceless!
