One of the recent top posts at WordPress was a humorous list of unfortunately arranged domain names, which I had seen a few years ago, and has since been circulated many times.

3. A journey of a thousand sites begins with a single click.
4. You can’t teach a new mouse old clicks.
5. Don’t put all your hypes in one home page.
6. Pentium wise; pen and paper foolish.
7. The modem is the message.
8. Too many clicks spoil the browse.
9. The geek shall inherit the earth.
10. A chat has nine lives.
11. Don’t byte off more than you can view.
12. Fax is stranger than fiction.
13. What boots up must come down.
14. Windows will never cease.
15. Virtual reality is its own reward.
16. Modulation in all things.
17. A user and his leisure time are soon parted.
18. There’s no place like http://www.home.com
19. Oh, what a tangled website we weave when first we practice.
20. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him to surf the Net, and he won’t bother you for months on end.
