You know “Go Wireless” isn’t referring to a sports team, right?

Muhammad Uzair

Hey man which one of these are of my wireless router?


“Tech support said it might be a bad cable”


“Maybe you’re right…how much was that router again?”


You keep using that word… I do not think it means what you think it means.

Paul G

I heard about the tangle of Love … but this is ridiculous!

Mick T

I think we need to pull the plug on this idea :(


“We need to talk about your attachment disorder!”


“Jeez, the NSA isn’t even trying to be subtle about their wiretapping programs anymore, are they?”


Everything else went into storage. And quite of the few of the things that started out in that carry-on bag got mailed back to the States because I just got tired of carrying them. :P

Bill M

Is that poster designed to be more mocking than inspirational?

Mike Freeman

Bob, I get the sense that you’re not on-board with our “Go Wireless” initiative.


Even this won’t stop the NSA from snooping on you!

Christopher Whedon

Where does the red wire go?


I’m wrapped up in our wireless infrastructure!

Noy S

I think you need to defragment your room so that you have more space!

I don’t know why, but I feel like trapped on a spiderweb everytime I come around here.

Roger Gardner

“Shut up!” Spiderman thought; Maybe I LIKE the Wires!!

Carson Ip

I prefer these with ketchup.


The “Teamwork” one didn’t work either.


“I have this sudden hankering for spaghetti.”


It started with one peripheral and…well, that escalated quickly!

Do you know how many surge protectors we’ll have to get now?!

Dave ONeill

Ah…how ’bout spaghetti for lunch?

i need to reconfigure our 2300th Access Point, can you tell me which one is it ?

Charles T

I just came in here to tell you the printer in my office is offline.

Bryan Collins

What is this, a vineyard of wires, wires run amuck, or just your lazy butt’s way of not cleaning up your mess? No boss, its the result of your archaic, cheap ass not wanting to get with the times and go wireless. At least I did upgrade you from stone and chisel last year and got you a computer. One change per decade is my motto. Now back to work. Cheap ass. More like one change per century. Cheap and dumb. So what does that make me for working for him? At least I have a job.

Joe McD

Les: “You know Fred, this is not what the sign means.”

Junil M

Do you know how to make a giraffe from these cables? I think mine looks like an elephant.

alton pettigrew

Tomasz J

We are wireless, we have a wireless mobile phone.

Steve Costello

Rick Sales


Bear Shinn

Alright, I know they all said “Plug and Play” on the box…. I know you didn’t want to ask your kids for help. I know your wife bought all this stuff from Amazon specifically because they advertised as “Plug and Play” devices. I know that technically all this stuff works, but I feel I should mention that my daughter setup our Wi-Fi system in five minutes and configured our home network to media stream all our Amazon Content from a shared drive. At this point I’m not saying we ask her for help, I’m saying we tell her your wife asked….

Ryan C

Dave, I put that sign there for a reason.

Hewie Poplock

That’s why they call it “The Web!”
