Anyway, we walk into his house and do the normal hello thing, shook hands, met his wife. It was a normal, recent college grad, house in the Chicago suburbs: not too big but nice. It was well put together, but nothing really stood out. It was simple, but tidy.
Then we went into the basement to watch the movie.
And there it was. The single largest TV I had ever seen. This is at the beginning of the larger, flatter TV craze, and this TV was NOT a flat screen TV. It took up one entire wall of his basement. It was seriously immense.
So immense, that the next day I quickly jotted down a silly little poem about it's largess. It isn't a complicated or deep poem, it is just meant to be fun. I hope you like it.
I could hide in joels TV
with several others there with me
while I stretch out in joels TV
Clouds my soul in deep envy
From orbit I still could see
The pixel count of Joels TV
Larger than a redwood tree
Come and scale its screen with me
And see the sights from Joels TV
Wonder what sights we shall see
And what far off Kingdoms that there be
From the top of Joels TV
The vast expanse laid before me
Wider than the deepest sea
Is the scope of Joels TV
and Sent me on a shopping spree
to try and match the travesty
of the price of Joels tv
Larger than mine eye can see
The picture it conjures up for me
And displays for all to see
with furlongs measered it should be
and not by inches stupidly
as is done with mortal TV
For any lesser teleV
Could never offer the shockingly
Deep delight of Joels TV
