No flyfishing content here, sorry. But the day after Christmas 1997 Dave Lewis reported an apparent hardware problem with his new Power Mac clone. The Flyfish List didn't let him down, as you can see below.

A Mac is a Mac
When it works it really works
When it doesn't work...

This won't help much
Useless error messages
But the bomb is cute

Inspired MACs Are
Bombs Fall From Heavenly Sky
Reminder to All

A Mac is A Mac
Very Fortunate We Are
Advocates Care Much

Our Window is Clear
No Blue Screen of Death Awaits
Heaven is Our Home.
