This is for those people who buy the state of the art anything, spending beaucoup dollars, and then when they go to use it, end up feeling like they’re living in a foreign country.

Who Dreamed Up Genie?
I just spent $99 on this new app, not 99¢, which should make it THE BEST APP ever made; and I can’t believe that I wind up here.
Just so you understand. I buy this app called “GENIE” and I’m supposed to be able to tell it what I want and it’s supposed to get it for me. Instantaneous. Voice to text. State-of-the-art.
Sounds cool – so I download it, and I order a Corona and pizza.
The next thing I know I’m sitting here in Rome all by myself.
So I ask Genie, “Hey, what happened to my Corona and pizza?”
Genie texts me back, “Sorry, Master. I thought you said:
‘Alone-a in a piazza’”
I’m buying the 99¢ version and getting my money back.
