The Relic

Philadelphia PA-- Excited scholars at the University of Pencilvainia uncovered what may be the oldest web page ever written. The web page was on a tiny computer screen, located in Fish Hall. The dusty computer with flashing green cathodes was still functioning. Scholars indicated it may be as ancient as 1978, an entire decade earlier than the previous relic.

Web historian Al Gee said the find is even more fantastic. The web page appears to be using the ancient computer language FORTRAN. The legendary computer language is said to even pre-date Macrosoft.

"Anything before the existence of Macrosoft is controversial, even heretical." said Dr. Gee. "We only have legends about FORTRAN, this extraordinary find will unlock many mysteries."

Dr. Gee said computer historians really can't answer where computers came from.

"Common sense tells us computers have always existed. How else could anything get done?." he asked. "There are some wild legends about a giant computer named UNIVAC that created itself right here in Philadelphia in the 1950's. The whole idea is absurd!" he laughed. "People that lived during that time period were still living in caves." said the brilliant scholar.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
