Dell and WMD

  bremner 12:27 14 Feb 2004

Just been on the Dell site as I am thinking of buying a laptop from them.

I started to fill in the order form and came across this classic question which I had to share with you:

"Q4. Will the product(s) be used in connection with weapons of mass destruction, i.e. nuclear applications, missile technology, or chemical or biological weapons purposes?"

Of course any terrorist or tin pot dictatorship thinking of buying a Dell laptop would of course answer yes.

I suppose that means Dell nolonger includes missile guidance systems in their list of 'optional extras'.......:P

This just shows that Dell is really a cover for the CIA/FBI and this is in fact a cunning plot to capture subversives at while they are off guard and at their weakest, i.e. while they have their credit cards out.

It might seem clumsy and obvious but that is the beauty of it, they will never suspect a thing until its too late.

Just out of interest what happens if you answer yes to the question ? :-)

A friend (no, really) ordered a dell from a dell stand at a show and the salesman conveniently ticked yes (this friend is nordic blond, not swarthy dark skinned). He had lots of interesting phone calls and a refusal to complete the order!!
