What good is an inside joke if you can't share them with friends? Instead of running of on a tangent every time I interject a personal/historical reference, I'll just archive them here and you can refer to them as they come up. Deal?
Intar-web - A slang term that denotes a certain amount of incredulity towards information obtained from or referenced on the World Wide Web. Although we're slowly creeping out of it - we still live in an age where much of what we see and read on the Internet is accepted as fact. The adage, "you can't believe everything you read" has now graduated to the point of "you can't believe everything that you click on". Just because something is posted on the Web doesn't mean it's true, or factual, or for that matter - worth your time.
What really makes this an inside joke is that there was an episode of House, M.D. where Dr. House was doing his rotations in the E.R. and he meets a patient who is more than a little "well read" on his symptoms and possible diagnosis. Dr. House quips with "Looks like somebody's been on the Intar-web" (obvious mispronunciation and misspelling). In short, he was saying - I know you've read all this stuff, but I'm the Doctor and I'll diagnose you - not WebMD.com. In addition, it's Hugh Laurie - so it had a certain panache when he said it - so I use it from time to time.
