The True Origin of the Internet

In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader called

Abraham of Com did take unto himself a young wife

by the name of Dot. And Dot of Com was a comely

woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg.

Indeed, she had been called 'Amazon Dot Com'.

And she said unto Abraham, her husband,
'Why dost thou travel far from town to town with thy

goods when thou can trade without ever leaving thy


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 (look it up, it means to hide)

himself inside Abraham's drum and was accused

of insider trading. And the young man 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, 'Young Ambitious Hebrew

Owner Operators.'
'YAHOO!' exclaimed Abraham.

And that is how it all began.
Al Gore had absolutely nothing to do with it
