13. GUI

In the early days of home computers everything that came to your screen was in text.  Then Apple/Macintosh (followed much later by Microsoft's Windows) created the Graphical User Interface.  That meant using a mouse instead of just a keyboard, screens that had icons, etc.

The term GUI was usually pronounced word-like -- "gooey."

A porn-loving fellow named Louie
When he'd web-surf would often say "Phooey!
I've shot such a big wad
From my seven-inch rod
That my monitor's sticky and GUI."
