It's difficult being an internet moron. I should know. I am always amazed when tech geniuses speak freely in another language that involves pings, tracking, SEO's and a list of other words that baffle me. I am a fossil - a writer who was told I could write if I blog. Heck, I can barely type, so diving into Word Press and Flickr was about as easy for me as getting a sex change. Before my maiden voyage, I thought "blog" was a state of physical distress caused by too much salt on my margaritas. So here I am, in a world gone mad with technology and new phrases, with no translator.
There must be other morons like me out there. Hello? Are you there? Buck up and admit you are as dense as I am! On behalf of all of us internet-challenged relics, I am herein providing a vocabulary of words as we know them, so that maybe those Geniuses will understand that they must communicate to some of us through our own portal (whatever that is.) Here it is folks - straight off the Rosetta stone - Vocabulary of the Internet Clueless:
Website - Vision after 45 (Or after a Colt 45)
Tags - Fleshy outcroppings that should be lopped off
SEO - Serious Estrogen Overload (Not limited to Pamela Anderson...or Clay Aiken)
Upload - A high colonic
Download - The aftermath of too many burritos
Portal - Location of a Download
Search Engine - A drill performed by those idiots who lost that fire truck in Iowa
Twitter - PeeWee Herman on Red Bull
Flash Drive - Britney on Hollywood Blvd.
Tweet - "Sweet" - as pronounced in West Hollywood (and by Clay Aiken)
Active Rain - A serious incontinence problem
