PENTIUM

Source of complete confusion to most of the non-computer literate people in the world, who don't really understand why they have to advertise this thing on the telly, but the pictures of dolphins and computer parts and Intel engineers dancing around look nice.


PRINTER

A device which in most offices has a curious talent of chopping down far more trees that you would have thought possible, all without leaving its desk.


PRIORITISER

The person in the office who always, and I mean always sets the priority to "High" on every single piece of electronic mail they send. This person is generally one of the friendliest in the office, which means everybody's too embarrassed to ask them why.
