    ACCORDING TO A "NEWER" TESTAMENT HERE IS THE ORIGIN OF THE INTERNET.
    DO ENJOY THE SKILL WITH WHICH WORDS ARE USED.
    A PURELY LIGHT-HEARTED CREATION.
    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 we wish you to believeth in.

    AMEN!!!!
