The following joke is dedicated to the celebration of the birthday of internet in January 1, 1983. In the early 1970's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) gave birth to the Internet Protocol. In 1975, two TCP/IP communication tests were carried out between Stanford University and the University College of London (UCL). In November 1977, three network TCP/IP tests were conducted between the United States, United Kingdom and Norway. Between 1978 and 1983, several other TCP/IP prototypes have been developed at many research centers.
The total changeover to TCP/IP from the ARPANET was held on January 1, 1983
In memory of that day, we dedicate the following joke :
A grade school teacher was asking his pupils what their parents did for a living.
"Tim, you be first. What does your mother do all day?"
Tim stood up and proudly said, "She's a doctor."
"That's wonderful. How about you, Amy?"
Amy shyly stood up, scuffed her feet and said, "My father is a mailman."
"Thank you, Amy" said the teacher. "What does your parent do, Billy?"
Billy proudly stood up and announced, "My daddy plays piano in a whorehouse."
The teacher was aghast and went to Billy's house and rang the bell.
Billy's father answered the door.
The teacher explained what his son had said and demanded an explanation.
Billy's dad said, "I'm actually a system programmer specializing in TCP/IP communication protocol on UNIX systems. How can I explain a thing like that to a seven-year-old?"
