Part of the furniture

Saw this on another forum and had to laugh.
Edit Strike Forum said:So here I am, sitting at my computer last night. I use Thunderbird as an e-mail client, and they allow you to use a custom .wav file for e-mail notification. So I played around on the net last night and downloaded a bunch of .wav files, some simpsons clips, some movie sound bites and so on. I finally settled on the Samuel L. Jackson quote from Pulp fiction. The clip sounds like this:
"*loud gunshot* Oh, I'm sorry did I break your concentration?"
Cool? Cool. So after that I threw on some headphones and listened to some .oggs, ending my night on Pantera's 'this love'. I had the headphones crancked because, well, it's a kick ass song you know. Now it's time for bed, so I put the headphones away, and I'm off. My computer stays on 24/7, and stoopid me forgot to turn the volume down. I ALSO forgot to close thunderbird.
You can see where this is going.
So here it is, 3:00AM or so, both my wife and I are sleeping peacefully, when out of the blue we are woke by a loud gunshout followed by what sounds like a man's voice coming from the other room. In a panic we both jump out of bed, wide awake, before I finally realized what happened.
We have a comfortable couch by the way.
