“Come to think of it, there are already a million monkeys on a million typewriters, and Usenet is NOTHING like Shakespeare.”
Blair Houghton 1993 [Quoted in Adam Rifkin, http://www.cs.caltech.edu/~adam/MSGLIST/MsgList and in a 2 December 1993 contribution to the alt.humor.best-of-usenet computer humor newsgroup. (A copy is in http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~allanl/funny/classic/like.usenet, where it seems to be copied from an earlier firstname.lastname@example.org list-serve posting thanking email@example.com (Rob Knauerhase) for contributing it.]
