A Riddle: What 3 Applications Should Never Be Put Side By Side In The Dock?

So, I have several female clients in my Apple Technical Service & Repair biz ... some of which are very sexy single (or wishing to be) middle aged women.

A week ago ... I got in an Apple laptop to upgrade the hard drive.

This female client wanted three main applications in the dock on her PowerBook . . .

Quicken
Entourage
Excel


Can you figure out why these applications placed in the order above in the dock is an insinuating message?

AGAIN ... the order in the dock from left to right was Quicken Entourage Excel.

And see if you can get it without scrolling through the comments ... just post your answer to the comments.

UPDATE: THE ANSWER IS BELOW ... Quicken has a $ for a dock icon, Entourage an E, Excel = X

I did the same with skype, explorer, excel:

Yes , I figured it out

Quicken to figure out how much us "Males" are worth

Entourage to tell all "her" friends that how much her mate owns/worth

Excel- a spreadsheet to show her lawyer
what she wants from the Male

Nope ... try again ... it specifically has to do with how these apps show up in the dock when in this order.

But funny answer.

An anonymous poster got it ... but I erased the comment to see if anyone else could get it.

Another funny comment but not it either ... although just as insinuating

I don't have the program, but I'm guessing Quicken's Icon features an S.

That would be pretty funny though.

Because it spells $EX in the dog

Darn. I don't use Quicken (though I know the icon), but I do use Skype, Explorer and Excel sometimes...

fixyourthinking said...

Ha Skype Explorer and Excel work too - X code would also fit for a third app

Hah. You people are silly!

I will be honest though...at one point, I had "Excel" and "PowerPoint" right next to each other. I switched them around, after I read it as "XP"

It actually looked more like S O X, then SEX.

You ought to post a picture for those of us who don't have (and probably will never have) any M$ products on their Macs
