Dear Editor,

I've been trying to make my way through this quagmire of digital fog known as "The Internet", but I find myself distracted by a most distracting phenomenon: that of repetition.

The same words are used, over and over and over again.

Words like: quagmire, digital, phenomenon, hack, characters, plot, murder, example, pwned, the, and, and.

My only recourse in this situation is obvious. I must find an alternative to this Internet. Something with a smidgeon less net, perhaps.

Can anyone possibly help an old lady?

Yours in exasperated exasperation,
Myrtle Grugenstein

While wallowing through the quagmire of this digital phenomenon, and hacking my way through my latest murder plot with its exasperating and distracting characters, I can only say that I agree with you completely. Shall we go back to carrier pigeons or smoke signals?

Isn't "pwned" a Welsh word?

Oh, carrier pigeons! How delightful!

I wish to procure a uniformly colored tan animal, which shall go by the name of Terrence. He shall be given the very best in carrier pigeon legwear.

I've found smoke signals to be effective. Once I burned hash browns and within a mere two days, a man arrived at my house to ask me if I'd meant "the elephants left foot" or "the elephants left, afoot."
