“I hold, in my hand, the entire Internet!”
“What, in this tiny USB key? Impossible. The Internet is ever-changing.”
“This device holds not the data of the Internet, but the fractal algorithm which can iteratively generate all the content that will ever be on the Internet.”
“I thought so.”
Professor Threelemmings had finally completed his device.
“This device,” he announced to his assistants, “will rid the world, nay, the entire universe, of something completely unneeded. Activate the device.”
There was a sudden flash!
“What’s disappeared?” asked an assistant.
“Nothing, it seems,” said a disappointed Professor Twolemmings, after looking around.
He was being interviewed for his dream job, for the fourteenth time.
Things were going well, until he made another mistake.

What he didn’t know: the post had already been filled.
