The internet is a series of tubes

I’m pretty sure we all know what Senator Ted Stevens said a couple of weeks ago about the internet when he was debating some net neutrality language should be included in a telecommunications bill (if not, click this link). Since Stevens, the longest-serving Republican Senator, said “The Internet is not something you just dump something on. It’s not a truck. It’s a series of tubes!” and “An Internet [sic] was sent by my staff at 10 o’clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why? Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the Internet commercially,” I have come across quite a few parodies of Stevens’ idiocy on my series of tubes. A friend pointed me to this one, which happens to be my favorite so far. If you know of any others that are worth watching, please let me know. Just don’t send them all to me at once, because my tubes are pretty clogged and I haven’t had the internet man come by for maintenance in a while.

Don’t put those papers on the tubes that run into your computer, or they might smash them and block the flow.
