The '''Acorn Computer''' Company was founded in [[1982]] by computer programmer Gerald Acorn. He had been working into the night programming his BBC Micro to repeat the word "[[breasts|boobs]]" on an infinite loop when he brushed the Break key, erasing weeks of work and almost three lines of [[BASIC]].

In anger, he threw the computer to the floor where it landed on his [[cat]]'s tail. The cat flew into a rage, throwing Acorn to the floor and punching and kicking him unconscious.

During his long recovery, Acorn worked on a revolutionary new computer. It was just like the [[BBC Micro]] of old, with a keyboard based on a [[baboon]]'s arse, but the new computer had a Graphical User Interface, and no break key. It also pioneered the three button mouse, a device designed to confound [[Apple Computers|Apple]] users. This computer went on to become known as the Acorn [[Archimedes]], so called because of the large volume of water it displaced as Mr Acorn dropped it into his bath in an abortive suicide attempt.

Acorn computers gained in popularity in the field of educational computing. This is because Acorn were the only computers which did not come bundled with copious amounts of undeleteable [[pornography]].

All computers came with Acorn's own operating system, RISC. It was so named because it would occasionally trick the computer's power supply into pumping a full 240 volts into the CPU, causing the computer to [[explode]] violently.

As [[Microsoft]] began to dominate home computing, Acorn attempted numerous innovative new gimmicks.
