          *slaps whippersnapper thoroughly*

          There was an internet a lot longer ago than that! Kids these days . . .

          The internet began in 1963 as the brainchild of scientists working for the defense industry. Arpanet was rolled out in 1969. By 1980 the Arpanet was shut down as it's functionality had been totally subsumed into the commercial internet. By 1994, we were celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Internet, and the number of users was doubling every year.

          A few years ago I saw a TV news show doing a piece on Internet usage. At one point they asked some college kid what he thought of the increasing number of "older" people on social networks such as Myspace. The kid said, "Oh, I think it's GREAT that people as old as 40 are figuring out how to use the internet!"

          Grrrrr! Whippersnapper! Who do you think INVENTED it???? LOL!

            I think tomytomy is confusing the Internet with the World Wide Web, which didn't really get off the ground until the late 1980s (although even that is more than 20 years ago now). Before the WWW we all got our jollies chatting about food (and pretty much everything else) on Usenet.

              Ah, Usenet. And MUDDs. Even the porn was more imaginative back then (had to be, with a 300 bits per second Smartmodem and very little in the way of usable graphics . . . )

              Um, I'm 50 years old. No need to get all high and mighty with me. I assumed you meant the Ally McBeal dancing baby which made the rounds on the Internet in the late 1990s, which was less than 20 years ago. Sooooooooryyyyyyyyyyyy.

                The dancing baby meme started on the Internet. I guess Ally McBeal picked it up (never watched that program). I bet it's still around somewhere.

                The question was "Was there an internet 20 years ago?" - yep. Dancing babies or no dancing babies, the internet has been around a loooong time.

                Almost as long as me . . . >:D

            Of course it's wrong!

            Not terribly surprising. But still wrong!

              But if you did, wouldn't you be at risk of having hungry dogs nipping at your bacon-wrapped goodies as you walk down the street? Ouch!

                    Could be that there is something wrong with me, but I think it's hysterical. Not saying that I'd eat it, but then I don't like meat loaf.

                          Well, not the same baby (and not the same level of, uh, skill), but here's a before-and after:

                            Yeah I think a sleeping baby would have been less frightening.

                              I'm betting they're garlic cloves. The whole thing looks pretty tasty to me. I'd go for a nice slice of baby butt, with plenty of bacon!

                                    While it certainly isn't the most yummy thing I've seen, it's also not the worst.

                                    Perhaps I'm too old and jaded to be shocked by tasteless (pun intended) looking food. I mean, what do you expect from a site named cakewrecks?
