Make your Mac sing

If you are on a Mac do yourself a favour – copy the below text, paste it in your “Terminal” window and hit enter. If you don’t know where to find Terminal, search for it in spotlight. It’s a useful thing for geeks writing code and stuff.

osascript -e 'say "oh This is a silly song silly song silly song this is the silliest song ive ever ever heard So why keep you listening listening listening while you are supposed to work to work to work to work its because i hate my job hate my job hate my job its because i hate my job more than anything else No its because youve no life youve no life youve no life and you better go get one after forwarding this crap" using "cellos"'

Yeah, this trick has probably been around for ages. It may prove entertaining for some of you Mac lovers though. Paste your song in a comment below 🙂
