10 Reasons why chinchillas are better than computers (illustrated): 

1. Chinchillas are soft and furry.

Computers are not soft and cuddly.

2. Chinchillas won’t lie to you.

Computers. They LIE!

3. Chinchillas don’t need to be literate.

Computers should know how to read and write.

4. When a chinchilla dies, it’s really dead and not just teasing.

= Really Dead.

A dead computer, then computer saying "Just Kidding! I was too hot!"

This happens so often it's not even funny.

5. Chinchillas make great coats.

6. You can eat a chinchilla (if you really had to).

9. Chinchillas will eat out of your hands.

10. You can’t ever really be mad at a chinchilla.
