It can come when we least expect it, when we are happily playing our favorite game and diligently working on the report due tomorrow. Then, all of a sudden, when we are just right about to save our progress, the blue demon appears, stares at you straight in the face and tells you that some sort of fatal, non-recoverable error has occur. You can cry, curse or swear, but nothing will change the fact that your hard work has all gone to the drain. Nobody will mistake that mocking blue screen for anything but a big FAIL. Yes, it’s the infamous blue screen of death, or BSoD for short. Oh, how we dread seeing one.
Due to its widespread unpopularity, some victims of BSoD have make it a point to capture instances of BSoD for a good laugh (a laugh at their own plight, perhaps?). Others have even photoshopped BSoD into actual images and turned them into jokes. Whatever it is, we all find them hilarious because we’ve experienced them from time to time. To celebrate our contempt for BSoD, we have picked some of the most amusing and clever ones out there to showcase them here. Enjoy and be entertained!
