Bye bye Floppy Disks

Even before the floppy finally flopped, I said bye bye to them when I got my first USB flash drive way back in college. It was a measly 64MB USB flash drive yet it can hold more data than a 1.44 MB floppy disk. And, my flash drive back then won’t prompt me to format it every time I put it to use with another PC. 😀 After seeing the I’m a PC and I’m a Mac advertisements, I suddenly thought of “I’m a floppy and I’m a flash drive” version of it. 😀

Floppy: I’m a floppy
Flash drive: and I’m a flash drive

Floppy: I can hold word documents, spreadsheets
Flash drive: and I can hold more than that. Be it powerpoint slides, videos, MP3s. I’m fun.
Floppy: I’m all work
Flash drive: And I work hard and play hard

*****

Floppy: I’m a floppy
Flash drive: and I’m a flash drive

Floppy: I’m thin
Flash drive: and you can fit me in your hands with your fists closed

*****

Floppy: I’m a flop… *started to pause*
Flash drive: and I’m a flash drive
Flash drive: What’s happening to… Ohhh… reformat!
*Floppy started to puke data*
Floppy: What happened to me? Where am I? What time is it?

The End!

Just keep your floppy disks with your betamax tapes for the ultimate techie vintage collection. 😀
