An intentional mangling of (the) internet used for ironic effect as a humorous reference to the large segment of the population that remains clueless about technology. Now a popular malapropism, "the internets" meme exploded after the second televised Bush-Kerry debate held prior to the 2004 Presidential election. Blogs and Television, especially The Daily Show, bear much of the responsibility for the initial propagation of "the internets" as it is currently used.
When asked about the seeming inevitibility of a draft, the President replied, "I hear there's rumors on the Internets (sic) that we're going to have a draft..."

a cesspool network of insults, porn, shit, lame ass death threats, and pointless arguments over stupid topics that nobody can win, like music.
examples of the shit on the internet: youtube, urbandictionary.com, any chatroom, blogs in general, any comments on anything, porn sites, etc...

A large repository of every idea you could ever have, no matter how clever or seemingly unique it may be.
I thought of "That's nacho cheese, it's mine!" but the Internet already had that in about a million places.
