Desert Island Disks

5.25-inch Floppy, Floppy Disk and HD DVD are standing outside the athletics track.
Floppy Disk: I didn’t know you managed to get tickets too, HD DVD?
HD DVD: Yes, I’m here as the official obsoleted media format of the games.
Floppy Disk: Hmm, this sponsorship nonsense is getting way out of hand.
5.25-inch Floppy: Damn my memory is so bad. So what are we doing here again?
Both Floppy Disk and HD DVD look surprised at 5.25-inch Floppy’s question.
Floppy Disk: For the tenth time, we have tickets for the men’s 100 metre finals. It’s the big match-up between Zip Disk and some guy from Jamaica. These tickets are like gold dust and…and…I don’t have them with me! Nip home and see if I left the tickets at home, 5.25-inch Floppy.
5.25-inch Floppy: Sure thing.
5.25-inch Floppy leaves the scene before returning half an hour later.
5.25-inch Floppy: They’re on the kitchen table where you left them.
Both Floppy Disk and HD DVD look stunned at 5.25-inch Floppy’s response.
