A series of tubes that move information around the world via computer. Not a dump truck, but a series of tubes. Also known by ignorant people as "the internet".
"The internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a truck. It's a series of tubes. And if you don't understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material." - Senator Ted Stevens (R-AK)
There's a sweet site on the intertube that shows photos of cats that look like Hitler!
