What's Wrong With This Caption?

Hey, kids!  Can you spot the error in this photo caption, taken from the 1981 textbook Computer Literacy: Problem-Solving with Computers?

Hint:  There's something else in the photo too. Can you see what it is?


  1. I am slow! I don't get it!

    The LSI seems a tiny bit large for my tastes, the gal is pretty and the prcoessing unit seems to live up to its name. What else is there?

  2. Heh... perhaps this joke is too obtuse to actually be funny. I was just trying to point out that the GIRL is not mentioned at all in the caption. It gives the impression that the textbook authors were so focused on the two pieces of hardware that they completely missed the human being standing dead center. :)
