Happy Birfday Intarweb!

According to Wired, today is the birthday of the Double-U Double-U Double-U (World Wide Web).


[FP]

If it weren't for the WWW, I wouldn't have a job, a hobby, or a social life. I also wouldn't know the joy of LOLcats, Fan Fiction, or Animated GIFs. I suppose out of appreciation I should get it a present or something. But what do you get for something that has everything?

I'm thinking maybe a pair of topless sandals.

Of course, this means that the Web is 16, so it's probably going through its sullen, withdrawn, goth phase. Actually, the World Wide Web is a pretty popular fella, so I can probably just get it a shell necklace and call it a day.

And with out the WWW I wouldn't have Dan to make me laugh! Honestly, I check your site everyday - feel like I know you and your friends and you really brighten up my day! THANKS DAN!

PS those shoes are weird!

but HOW do they adhere to your feet. Like suction? Or sticky? Seems like they wouldn't stick after they get a little dust on them. Don't get the WWW those, they seem pretty lame.

I'm pretty sure the WWW placed one hair right in the middle of the McDonald's Snack Wrap I ordered for lunch.

Although I was less disturbed by than then by the fact that I willingly consumed the hairless sections of an item that is pronounced "Snack Crap".

This is my favorite quote from the topless sandals website:

You can wear the sandals around water but if you submerge them in water, let them air dry and the adhesive is ready to go again. Itís very magical.

It's very magical.

while the quote about how very magical the sandals are is great how can you top the testimonial saying: "This is becoming a 'disease'. I've been back 4 times now to buy more."

I think that should be their headline: Our product is like a disease!

I want magical disease shoes!

I could totally see the web going through the sullen stage. It would explain some of the issues I've been having.

Yeah Dan...I'd stay away from the disease ridden shoes...you don't want to tick the dubya dubya dubya off since they are technically employing you!

Sweet 16 and presumably ambisexual? I'd go with a nice box of chocolates.

Wasn't he in that Maxell Tape ad?

Make it easy & just get the WWW a Hot Topic gift card while it's still in it's goth stage.

Those sandals are really odd too. I imagine they feel like being stuck to fly paper...
