Bored with TV
My uncle bought a VCR
And placed it in the living room
Its flashing 12:00
Gave testimony to his inability
To get the times to move with him.

He bought a new remote control
To set the VCR for him
But he couldn’t work out
How to insert the batteries.

Feeling discouraged
My uncle bought a microwave
Reasoning that even if the programmes were boring
At least he’d be able to eat them afterwards.

My uncle has a special remote control
To program the microwave for him
Now all he has to do
Is push a button marked “frozen pizza”
And remember to put in a tape
To record dinner while he is out.
