My Blackberry is not working …

I know that this has been around a while, but I was talking about this Ronnie Corbett sketch the other day and it still makes me laugh.

Oh, and in case you can’t play this in the office, here’s the script courtesy of Lybio.net.

My Blackberry Is Not Working – The One Ronnie, Preview – BBC One

[Ronnie Corbett] 
I bought something from you last week and I’m very disappointed.

[Harry Enfield]
Oh, ya, what’s the problem?

[Ronnie Corbett]
Ya, well, my blackberry is not working!

[Harry Enfield]
What’s the matter, it run out of juice?

[Ronnie Corbett]
No, no, it’s completely frozen!

[Harry Enfield] 
Oh, ya, I can see that! I’ll tell you what, let’s try on an Orange.

[Ronnie Corbett]
That’s got a few black spots – you see!

[Harry Enfield]
Oh, dear! Oh, ya, sorry about that ya

[Ronnie Corbett]
Would you get my Blackberry working?

[Harry Enfield] 
Well could be an application issue. Where did you store the blackberry

[Ronnie Corbett]
It was on my desktop.

[Harry Enfield]
Well you could use a mouse to drag the blackberry to the trash then after you’ve done that you might want to launch the blackberry from the desktop.

[Ronnie Corbett]
I’ve already tried that few times, all it did was mess up windows.

[Harry Enfield]
Well it might be worth waiting a couple of weeks, they got the latest blackberry coming in then.

Do you have a date?

[Harry Enfield]
Certainly.

[Ronnie Corbett]
Let me put that date in my diary.

[Harry Enfield]
Anything else I can help you with?

[Ronnie Corbett]
Yes, yes, I’ve also got a problem to be honest, with my apple

[Harry Enfield] Dear oh dear, that is an old apple isn’t it? When did you buy it?

[Ronnie Corbett] 
Last week.

[Harry Enfield]
Last week? They’ve brought out two new apples since then. What’s the problem with it?

[Ronnie Corbett]
I’m trying to put my dongle in it and it won’t fit.

[Harry Enfield]
Oh yeah, and how big is your dongle?

[Ronnie Corbett]
Well I don’t know much about these things but my wife has seen a few dongles in her time and she says a little bit on the small side.

[Harry Enfield]
Frankly there’s nothing I can do about it. Tell you what? Let me try booting it. There it’s crashed. Anything else I can help you with?

[Ronnie Corbett]
Funnily enough yes. My grandson’s birthday is soon. Now he’s already got an apple and a blackberry. I mean do you have anything else he might just like?

[Harry Enfield] 
Well we’re doing a special on these. I can’t make head or tail of them. The kids seem to like them egg box..360!
