Here are a few electronics-themed comics from a
1948 edition of Radio & Television News magazine. I particularly like the one from page
92. Webster's Dictionary offers 28 separate definitions of the word "carry" in both transitive
and intransitive forms. The definition implied by the proprietor is #19 a : to bear the charges
of holding or having (as stocks or merchandise) from one time to another. The definition inferred by
the lady is #1: to move while supporting. How can one word have so many definitions?
A complete list of all the comics I have posted is at the bottom of the page. They would make good
fodder for lightening up a technical presentation.
"But Lady, you take my sign too literally!"
"Good Morning, Exercise Club Members! Up and out of bed, bend to the floor, bend
-- 1-2-3-4 put some pep into it!"
"That must be the Grid Leak!"
"That will conclude our broadcast for tonight!"
