of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the
name of Dot. And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of
shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called
Amazon Dot Com.

canst 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,

drums in between to send messages saying what you have

Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have
her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were
an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had
at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent.
To prevent neighbouring countries from overhearing what the
drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and
the drummers knew. It was known as Must Send Drum Over

transmit ideas and pictures – Hebrew To The People (HTTP).

name that reflects what we are.”
And Dot replied, “Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators.”
“YAHOO,” said Abraham. And because it was Dot’s idea, they
named it YAHOO Dot Com.
Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot’s drums
to locate things around the countryside. It soon became known
as God’s Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE).
That is how it all began. And that’s the truth.
