(please for give the format)

In ancient Palestine, it
came to pass that a
trader by the name of
Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dorothy. And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she
was often called Amazon Dot Com.
And she said unto
Abraham, her husband,
"Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without ever leaving thy tent?"
And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?"
And Dot replied, "I will
place drums in all the
towns and drums in
between to send messages saying what you have for sale, and they will reply telling you
who hath the best price. The sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)." Abraham thought long
and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success.
Abraham sold all the
goods he had at the top price, without ever
having to move from his tent. To prevent neighboring
countries from overhearing what the
drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and the
drummers knew. It was known as Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS), and she also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures - Hebrew To The
People (HTTP).
And the young men did take to Dot Com's
trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic
Ecclesiastical Rich
Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS. And lo, the land was so
feverish with joy at the
new riches and the
deafening sound of
drums that no one
noticed that the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother William of Gates,
who bought off every
drum maker in the land. Indeed he did insist on drums to be made that would work only with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks.
And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others."
And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or eBay as it came to be known.
He said, "We need a
name that reflects what we are."
And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators."
"YAHOO," said
Abraham. And because it was
Dot's idea, they named it YAHOO Dot Com. Abraham's cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums to locate things around the countryside. It soon became known
as God's Own Official
Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE). That is how it all began.
And that's the honest
truth.
