“My grandad asked me how to print on his computer. I told him it’s Ctrl-P” (joke)

Ctrl-P (print) sounds like “control pee.” “Microsoft discriminates against incontinent people, with the continued insistence that they control pee to print” was posted on Twitter by “Boots McGoot is in the house” on July 15, 2011.

“‘Grandad asked me how to print.. i said control pee but hes not been able to do that for years’ love mock the week! hahaha” was posted on Twitter by Liam McDonald on September 23, 2012. “My Grandad asked me how to print. I said ‘Control P.’ He said: ‘I haven’t been able to do that for years!’ Credit: Gary Delaney” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on April 6, 2019.

The joke was probably said and popularized by English writer and stand-up comedian Gary Delaney on the British topical satirical celebrity panel show Mock the Week on September 20, 2012.

Grandpa ask me how to print.  I told him to CTRL-P.  He said he hasn’t been able to do that for 15yrs.

Old guys making jokes about computers like
“I wanted to print out something at home so I asked my son how, he said, ‘ctrl-p’. I said, ‘if I could control pee I’d be doing this at the library!’”

My grandad asked me how to print on his computer…
I told him it’s Ctrl-P. He says he hasn’t been able to do that for ages.
