Jul 12 Word of the Day
The horrible moment when you realise that you have accidentally done something very slightly wrong which has very bad (usually embarassing) implications for you. This is typically the moment of realisation that you just sent a dirty text message to a close member of family, typically your mother, rather than the intended recipient.
Message: "i'm free this afternoon so come over and fuck me senseless, my parents will be out all day"
Recipient: Mum

They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the Internet. And again, the Internet is not something you just dump something on. It's not a big 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...

Ten movies streaming across that, internet, and what happens to your own personal internet? I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o'clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?

The Internet is a communication tool used the world over where people can come together to bitch about movies and share pornography with one another.

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..."
