Once upon a time there was a C64.
He was a very friendly bilingual fellow looking like a bread box..
His user could always wake him up in no time and ask him to LOAD "*",8,1
C64's friends in school were called CBM, PET and Schneider.
They were boring to talk to after a while so his user got him a girlfriend called Amiga and a business partner called IBM.
Since vitamins are good, his user also got him an Apple to chew on.
As time went by the C64 and his friends got old and eventually were buried in oblivion.
In good memory his user did light a fire for them with a Sparc.
Since then cloning became very popular and the descendants of the C64's business partner rule the scene of his former user.
The descendants did breed many multilingual children of all sizes and shapes and the C64's former user is living happily with them ever after.
