Strange Image  
I just had a weird flash in my head, where I saw Aretha Franklin advertising DSL.


She was singing "P.P.P.O.E., find out what it means to me. P.P.P.O.E.! TCP/IP! WHOOO!"



And of course, the background singers were going "Socket to me, socket to me, socket to me, socket to me....."

Neat!
You are such a geek...

Maybe that's why we're such good friends.

The question, of course....
...if we were to present this to one of the DSL companies, would we see it on TV in the future, or would that just be too far above the average user's head?

'Cause it really does make me laugh and laugh...

The answer
Somehow I doubt we would see it. Ask 100 random people what PPPOE is, and see how many of them answer correctly. Not a good idea to put a commercial over your audience's head...

Doesn't stop it from making me laugh and laugh, though...

okay, it's official
You really need to be shot now.

Oh, you might like this... ealier I tuned on TV and LaBamba was on. Just in time to hear Esai Morales say "yeah, cabron. I'm still here. And I'm still your brother."

(Okay.. so maybe you don't need to be shot. Maybe you deserve to tae a flight wth a musical genius and a musical annoyance :-P)
