Adobe is a software company that makes programs to allow people to turn the contrast up on photographs so that they can post them to their MySpace profiles. It also owns Macromedia, the company responsible for Flash. With the widespread piracy of Photoshop and Flash, and the fact that their Acrobat Reader is free to download from their website, nobody has ever actually bought an Adobe product. Despite this, Adobe is still somehow a profitable company. This means that it either prints counterfeit money (photoshopped McDonalds coupons) or is a bizarre entity of antimatter that may cause the annihilation of the universe if it grows large enough.

Quick guide to legally buying an Adobe product
The purchase of an Adobe product is not a task to be entered into lightly. Many have sacrificed their lives trying to generate the money required. The below guide provides a relatively low-risk method of legally obtaining any Adobe program without resorting to piracy or other illegal activities.
- Sell your house and all your worldly possessions.
- Sell some of your less important organs to science.
- Refrain from buying food. Food is an unnecessary expenditure which can be avoided if you are willing to recycle your own waste for sustenance. Blowjobs can be dispensed to area homeless people for extra protein.
- Congratulations! You now have enough funding to buy the Adobe program of your choice within the confines of the law!
- Realize you sold your computer as part of your worldly possessions, meaning you can't even use this shit, and contemplate becoming an hero
- Repeat the entire process again in 3 months, when Adobe releases a new version of the same product, only with more bugs, memory leaks and useless features.
