It mentions in the Megilla "מחשבת המן" - Haman had a computer.

Which type of computer could he have? The Gemara says that Haman is connected to "Hamin Heitz" - Haman is a tree. The only tree computer that exists is an Apple, Therefore, Haman was an Apple.

Now, Apples are known to be stable computers. Yet, Haman was still able to be hung.

    Which, incidentally, is why the Baker (in the Egyptian Jail) was hung. You see, he was having too many dreams. Dreams are called " Chalo mos" which shares the same root as " Chalo nos" (which is particularly connected to Challa, which again is in the domain of the Baker). "Chalonos" are Windows, and everyone knows how easy it is to "hang" Windows.

    +1. We can probably extend this to some other characters in the Megillah as well. Achashverosh had סריסים = eunuchs = Unix; Mordechai had DOS (פתשגן כתב הדת), and Esther - not sure, but it definitely wasn't DOS (אשר לא כדת).

"In the third year of his reign, he made a feast unto all his princes and his servants; the army of Persia and Media, the nobles and princes of the provinces, being before him. When he showed the riches of his glorious kingdom and the honour of his excellent majesty, many days, a hundred and eighty days." -Esther 1:3-4

One hundred and eighty days of drunken debauchery, and yet there is no mention of anyone having a hangover. That is truly a miracle.

    On a more serious note, maybe that's why Achashverosh seems to do whatever anyone tells him to do. Commented Mar 8, 2012 at 4:21
