The Internet

This picture came from the political humor site at about.com I haven't had time to look through all of these yet, but they look pretty funny. I had to include the Prez and his "Internets" with this blog entry because that cracked us up when we heard him say it in the debates.

Here are some other quotes relating to the Internet (or Internets if you like! )

When I took office, only high energy physicists had ever heard of what is called the Worldwide Web.... Now even my cat has its own page.

On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog.
Peter Steiner, cartoon in The New Yorker, July 5, 1993

We've heard that a million monkeys at a million keyboards could produce the complete works of Shakespeare; now, thanks to the Internet, we know that is not true.

Computers make it easier to do a lot of things, but most of the things they make it easier to do don't need to be done.
