Wink The long lost Book of Cyber

Now 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 shoulders and long of leg, indeed she had been called Amazon Dot Com. And she said unto Abraham her husband,"Why doth thou travel from town to town with thy goods when thou can 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 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 lo they 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 secrete himself inside Abraham's drum and was accused of insider trading. And the young man did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. Whereupon 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 the 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 only work 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!" exclaimed Abraham.

And that is how it all began in history and how it is written in the ancient books. It was not Al Gore after all.

Moderator....please do not delete THIS post. All this "seriousness" needs a little injection of humor every now and then.

Very Good ....I give it a 8.5

I also think that many "Holy" books / "Scared" texts have some parts that are Humor / Satire / Political and Social Commentary intentional or otherwise ....

Since this posting relates, by the thinnest of threads, to characters mentioned in the Hebrew Scriptures, I would never consider deleting it.
