If there's anything as funny as the Internet, nobody wants to hear about
it. Comedians and cartoonists alike have realized that the Internet
and the Web are the most sure-fire source of humor since someone first said
"Hey! I can talk just like John Wayne!"
Being old hands at Internet humor, we at the Brunching Shuttlecocks
decided we'd help out those who might need a little "nudge.com" to
Level One: Magazines and other publications skewed towards
an older audience -- such as The New Yorker or
any newspaper with less than three pages of comics -- need only mention
the Internet, or anything associated with it, to "drive the information
superhighway" of humor.
Level Two: For more culturally acclimated readers, you may
need to put in the effort needed to mention the Internet in an unusual
context, like church or a zoo. When in doubt, add a "dot com" to any
word and you've "uploaded" hilarity!
Level Three: Looking to seem "techno-savvy" about the Internet
without having to actually learn anything?
All you need is to pick a word you don't understand out of the Tech
section of your local paper, and make a pun on it! It's easy! You don't
even need to know what it means!
That's all there is to it! Remember these rules and you'll be "mousing over"
the "instant messaging" that "configures" the Internet into a "RAID array"
of hilarious "processor cycles!" Good luck and as they say in the chat rooms,
