  1. Except, Al Gore never claimed that he invented the Internet.


  2. I know. That doesn't make the joke any less funny. Which is to say it's barely, barely funny.

    Go here:

    "For the record, he said 'During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.' Or in other words, he was key in getting the funding for the researchers during his stay in the senate."

  3. Today's Running Joke

    Yes, yes, yes ... the Inventor of the Internet, Al Gore has joined Apple's board of directors. And it's spawned even worse jokes, as noted at NSLog(): "Excellent! This means Apple will have much better AlGoreithms in their code." Also,...

  4. Al Gore Joins Apple's Board

    I thought that "Internet inventor" joke might have faded by now.

    I was wrong.

  5. Al Gore is an idiot (Ivy League degree does not make for brilliance) and he's a notorious liar. The fact that Apple's directors voted him into the company makes me wonder about their own intelligence.

  6. Who is the Inventor of the internet? I keep asking myself...

  7. Well, it's a little late for this blog, but what the heck. Daria did not make ANY political statements in her first response that you so harshly nagged her about. She merely stated that Al Gore was an idiot and a liar. That is not politics. That is her impression that she gets from Al Gore. Under that description, I wouldn't see why any company would appoint him to such a position either.

  8. Ok, what about the manbearpig? huh? ever thought about that? Yes Al Gore is an idiot, everyone knows that. All he wants to do with this environmental movie is pretend he is doing something about it. A little late don't you think? He is jumping on the enviromental bandwagon. Shouldnt he been jumping on that bandwagon 20 years ago? He is just trying to save his political future, which is like the rest of the democrats, on the brink of instinction (thank god).

  9. im glad there's one republican here. Al Gore's an idiot. (as r all the other left-wingers). thanks for your wonderful political site erik.
