How The Internet Started (The real Truth)…….REALLY!

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 was often called Amazon Dot Com.

And she said unto Abraham , her husband,
“Why dost thou travel so far from town to town
with thy goods when thou canst 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 who 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 having to
move from his tent.

To prevent neighboring countries from overhearing
what the drums were saying, Dot devised a system that
only she and the drummers knew.
It was known as Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS),
and she also developed a language to transmit ideas
and pictures – Hebrew To The People (HTTP).

And the young men did take to Dot Com’s trading as doth
the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called
Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS.

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 that enterprising drum dealer
Brother William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker
in the land. And indeed did insist on drums to be made 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 Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or eBay
as it came to be known. He said,
“We need a name that reflects what we are.”

And Dot replied, “Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators.”
“YAHOO,” said Abraham. And because it was Dot’s idea,
they named it YAHOO Dot Com.

Abraham’s cousin, Joshua , being the young
Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was,
soon started using Dot’s drums to locate things around
the countryside. It soon became known as
God’s Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE).

That is how it all began. AND THAT’S THE TRUTH!
