Al Gore may have invented it, but it took Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Ted Stevens to explain it to the rest of us. What is this internet thing? Well, apparently it's a series of tubes. Senator Stevens gave his lucid description during debate on net neutrality legislation recently.
Thanks to his insight on a complicated subject, in the last week his statements have been referenced all over the internet. It's been on the Daily Show. It's been set to the funky beats. It's already been turned into a t-shirt. Ironic that video, audio and commerce are the very things Senator Stevens was complaining about clogging up the tubes.
Personally, I'm looking for this t-shirt.
