Acronyms, Explained

Every company has an IT department. In some places, that means "information technology." In some places, it means "infrastructure technology." In some places it means "idiot team."

But now, I have seen the definitive definition: Internet Tubes.

So, have a little respect for your Internet Tubes department, who are spending all their time working hard to keep your company's internet tubes clear and blockage-free! Don't forget, all those puffy fake boobs you're downloading on your work computer block up your company's internet tubes more than, say, your co-worker spamming out the joke of the day to 5,000 friends.

Being an Internet Tubes guy is hard, because you have to make sure all the tubes are connected to all the other tubes and that there are no leaks anywhere that could be causing Information Puddles in the walls of your building that not only mean that vital information isn't making it to its destination, but it's probably bad for the drywall, too.

I feel more technosavvy already!

Wow. No one's ever made my job so clear before. I'm a plumber.

That's right. You'd better start dressing accordingly. And *real* plumbers carry GUNS, not swords.

Aw man! There's no romance in firearms, no honor.

Can't I carry both, or something?

Um..no romance in firearms? No honor? You're talking to a girl born and raised in Arizona, who lived by the code of the Old West! Don't tell me there's no romance and no honor.

Oh, wait.

The "Code of the Old West" is actually "Shut the goddamned door! I got the a/c on!"

Never mind.
