Intelligent design: 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 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 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 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," said Abraham.

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