Appropriate Use of the Acronym "LOL"
This item (part of the 12/5/2003 Robert X. Cringely column in InfoWorld) literally had me laughing out loud:

Watch Your Language: In other news, Los Angeles County officials have urged vendors to stop using the term "master/slave" to describe technology where one device controls the actions of others, saying the term is racially insensitive. Rumor has it several hard drive makers are dropping the offending phrase from their documentation; new drives will now be labeled "dominant/submissive." (I’ll just apologize for this joke now and get it over with.)
