I can't figure out if the author is joking or serious ...If you need a good laugh to go with your morning coffee, maybe you can tell me.

I just have to include a quote! this is too much!

"If your son has requested a new "processor" from a company called "AMD", this is genuine cause for alarm. AMD is a third-world based company who make inferior, "knock-off" copies of American processor chips..."

Of course he's joking. The guy's profile on Adequacy pretty much confirms that, he's supposed to be a CS major, he refers to Linux using the JeffKism "Lunix" several times, and he calls Flash and Comet Curser a hacking program.

That said, this article is funny as hell, as are the posts below it from people who can't tell it's a satire.

thats one of the funniest things ive read in a long time, and im not even thru it all the way yet! just thinking of how many people are going to believe this and the children who will suffer. lol. ok, so ya, theres a mean streak in me there somewhere .

as to if the author is joking or serious; some of the sites he references are obvious jokes or puns on what hes talking about, so he intended it the way it is im sure.

Amb inferior to other processors? It's far ahead of the known Pentium processors, especialy the pentium four which is flawed. >=P

That was pretty funny. But the sad thing is you will get some parent that has no clue on computers that will belive what is said in that article. Feel sorry for any of their kids.
