Why Did Al Gore Invent the Interwebs?

I can answer the question "why did Al Gore invent the interwebs?" pretty easily.

It is so we can share with you this cri de couer from Ryan Theriot. Money quote: "When I was playing shortstop," he said, serving as his era's tragic spokesman, "we were in first place. I know that. It is what it is."

The point is that Netflix collapsed, and waterparks are empty, and in many cases closed, because of that little f**k Furcal. It is, indeed, what it is. And nothing less.

A giant appreciation to Kindred. This is pure comedy gold.

Al Gore didn't claim he invented the Internet:

Why lie?

Uh, because it's funny?

Anyway, Mungo never claimed that Al Gore claimed he invented the internet. Why suggest that he did?

Mr. Overwater: immediately under the passage you object to, there is a picture of Ryan Theriot's head photoshopped onto the body of a freakish bodybuilder. I don't think anyone believes that Al Gore claimed to invent the interwebs, OR that Ryan Theriot actually looks like that. It's a blog, it's satire, no one should believe ANYTHING printed here as fact. And I don't think anyone does. They may find it funny, but surely they don't think it factual.

Now, you may mean that you don't find the joke about Al Gore to be funny, because it is tiresome and overdone. That's fair enough.

On the "why lie?" question, you might ask that question of.... Al Gore, in the newest post on the main page.
