    true origin of the internet

    Got this in my email and thought I'd post it for others to laugh at too.

    The True Origin of the Internet??

    In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of
    Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name
    of Dot.

    And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of chest and long of
    leg. Indeed, she had been called "Amazon Dot Com."

    And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why doth thou travel
    far from town to town with thy goods when thou can trade without
    ever leaving thy tent?"

    And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle
    bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?"

    And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in
    between to send messages saying what you have for sale and
    they will reply telling you which hath the best price. And the sale
    can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony
    Stable (UPS)."

    Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way
    with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate
    success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price,
    without ever moving from his tent.

    But this success did arouse envy. A man named Maccabia did
    secrete himself inside Abraham's drum and was accused of
    insider trading. And other young men hearing of the success did
    take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to
    camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich
    Dominican Siderites, or NERDS for short.

    And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and
    the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real
    riches were going to the drum maker, one Brother William of
    Gates, who bought up every drum company in the land. And
    indeed did insist on making drums that would work only with
    Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks.

    And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being
    taken over by others."

    And as Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or as it came
    to be known "eBay" he said, "We need a name that reflects what
    we are."

    And Dot replied, "We shall be known as Young Ambitious Hebrew
    Owner Operators."

    "YAHOO," said Abraham.

    And that is how it all began. It wasn't Al Gore after all.

    Shold be in Tech Humour, yes.

    Penguins are going to show up in the sequel. Coming in hordes and using the drums as herring traps while they develop a Linear Inter-Networked Utility Xylophone for better communication... higher-pitched sounds are better heard than drum beats.
