Fun Online Polls: Michael Stipe's Jaguar & Stupid printer choices

The responses to last week's Fun Online Poll, on a very low turnout, were as follows:

Which model Jaguar would Michael Stipe out of R.E.M drive?

Mark 2 - 5 votes
E-Type - 8 votes
XJ6 - 1 vote
XJ-S or XJS - 1 vote
S-Type - 4 votes
X-Type - 2 votes
Other, please specify - 3 votes

So only four people got the joke - Michael Stipe would drive an S-Type, it would save him the faff of buying a personalised number plate.

Bonus points to Fraggle: "E-bow-type".
Although we might never find an answer to the question "Why does the printer always run out of paper when you're printing?", perhaps we can come up with a definitive response to one of the stupidest/easiest/most irritating choices of all time.

I print so little, I'd actually like to just find somewhere that I can take a USB stick and print it, rather than having inks drying up all the time.

Why does it always run out wehn you're printing?

Because that's the only time the paper stack is being depleted. (see also 'why do windscreen wipers always break when it's raining')

TS, those sticks are a bit old-fashioned, aren't they? Don't you just email stuff to yourself?

JM, thanks, I have posted. He's got his finger on the pulse, that man.

VFTS, that must be the answer, I suppose. Although the only time that one of my windscreen wipers broke was when it was frozen solid and I tried to loosen it a bit.

It promptly snapped off :-(
