Ted Stevens infamous speech from 2006 describing the Internet, and obviously failing badly. We all knew the Internet was not a big truck, we also know that the tubes….er Internet does not get clogged in a fashion that can be cleaned with Draino.

…sigh…

Poor Ted, I didn’t think things would ever get much worse, but then there was that huge kickback scandal. So does “A Series of Tubes” get tired as a meme, or is it still alive and kicking. You decide.
