    How the Internet Started

    (according to Biblical scholars) ..

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

    And Dot Com was a comely woman, large of breast, 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 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
    who hath the best price. 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

    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 neighbouring 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. Indeed he 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

    And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or eBay as it came to be

    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.
