Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling The Tale of Ye Olde Inter-Nets Part the Second Thus far: a protocol for requesting information was invented, and prosperity and happiness spread through the kingdom. Man: I sent out a request to a town crier address... Town Crier: Hear ye - six weird tricks to remedy thy gout! Footpaths, which the king had put under charge of the TROLL, were expanded into information roadways. And the troll went to the king - Troll: Look how rich some are getting by use of MY inter-nets! Man: They're not YOUR inter-nets! You just built the ROADS -- because the king GAVE you that right! Man: And, you're getting wealthy as well! Troll: Ah, but not as wealthy as I could! Troll: I want to charge MORE for those who want faster lanes. Man: Good sire, we must assure inter-nets NEUTRALITY! King: Hmm ... I shall appoint a commissioner of the communications to decide! Man: Excellent, I accept... King: And I choose the troll! Troll: You are wise, my liege! Man: What? Troll: And the inter-nets are finally working right. TOLL INTER-NETS SERVICE PROVISIONER Coming - The inter-nets for noblemen flourishes whilst web-surfing for serfs grinds to a halt. The End
