What's a computer?

Life was more fun when all I had to take care of was a horse and a
dog and nobody had heard of a computer.

"Com-what? "


"Whut in tarnation is thayet?"

"Beats me. I read about one in Amazing Stories. You'll say,
"Computer ... Tea ... Earl Grey ... Hot. And a cup of it shows up in
this little alcove in the wall."

"Whut's thayet ?"

"Hell if I know."

Yuk, yuk.
