How the internet REALLY got started...
"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 secret
himself inside Abraham's drum and was accused of insider trading. 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 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.
