Internet Creator Gore Adds New Claim to Accomplishments

Posted by The Evil Emperor Mindstation @ 5/05/2005 06:59:00 PM

Kevin at Wizbang is reporting that Vice President Al Gore will accept the Webby Award for "three decades of contributions to the Internet."

Point Five has been given exclusive access to the transcript of the speech that Mr. Gore will give at the awards dinner on June 6. Among other achievements, Al Gore will take credit for the following:
  • Legislative sponsorship of the bill that created the internet.
  • Legislative sponsorship of the bill that created internet porn.
  • The free AOL 6.0 disk
  • The "Blue Screen of Death"
  • Cream Cheese
  • Web Logging, a precursor to Blogging

  • Al Gore's "Blue Screen of Death", designed for Windows to give computer users a restful ergonomic break every fifteen minutes.
  • Ctrl-Alt-End (Gore's early idea that was later supplanted by David Bradley's Ctrl-Alt-Del)
  • The name "slacks" to indicate "pants"
The remainder of the speech contains long and rambling sentences with no basic structure and has a complete lack of what we in blogging like to call an 'end'. All in all, it reveals why former president Bill Clinton used to refer Gore to as "Vice Presidential" in stature.

Did you know that 'blog' is short for 'web log'?
