Morning Routine
I had a really hard time not writing '...profit!'
Title text: I had a really hard time not writing '...profit!'

[edit] Explanation

Thanks to the portability of the modern computer, the availability of the internet and the advent of social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter, someone could conceivably use their laptop to catch up on the lives of everyone they care about from the comfort of their own bed; indeed, they could do it under the covers if they want to.

This is rather different than the pre-computer days in which catching up with friends required a great deal more effort. Hence, laptops are weird.

The title text refers to the South Park episode "Gnomes", in which a race of tiny gnomes steal people's underpants. Their business plan is finally explained as:

Phase 1: Collect underpants
Phase 2: ?
Phase 3: Profit

This became an internet meme.
