'Nuff dancing around
Since interest in this whole affair is dying, and more and more people are resigning themselves to the idea that the quote doesn't exist, I decided to take a more direct approach. Being that I had already found the earliest occurance of this quote on the internet, I decided to email the ORIGINAL POSTER (not Sswyak, but the one he heard it from) and just ask her where the hell she heard it from in the first place:
I don't mean to bother you, and if you've gotten this
same question a million times, than feel free to
ignore me. But, as far as I can tell, you were one of
the first people online to pose the question of the
source of this quote:
"What does it do?"
"It doesn't DO anything. That's the beauty of it."
The question was posed on the Hatrack Forum, April
3rd, 2003. If you don't remember, that's fine. And
no, I'm not stalking you or anything, I was just
curious as to whether you were aware just how much
your question has captured the curiousity of half the
internet. You see, I'm insanely curious to know where
YOU heard it from. Do you remember? I'm thinking of
writing an article about it.
All the best,
ps- the only thread still mulling over it is this one:
