Tom Lehrer is Smug

"He's posting a joke! I better take him seriously!"

Okay, guys, fun's fun, but the joke's done.

And I appreciate all the hard work that obviously went in to setting up the entire world so that when I woke up one day in November, I hear this new tech buzzword being bantered around like it's been here all along. That's hilarious! You know I like creating fake companies, towns and concepts, and "cloud computing" sure sounds like something I could've come up with. It's great. And it came out of the blue. Just like clouds! I get it! How long did it take you guys to come up with all this?

But let's be serious for a moment here. Jokes have a shelf life, and this one is definitely past its own. Let's get back to mocking, you know, real buzzwords.

Countdown to YHBT in 5... 4... 3...
