From the Prophet.

A Bible Story. com

An old, bearded shepherd, with a crooked staff,
walks up to a stone pulpit and says . . .

And lo it came to pass that the trader by the
name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young
wife by the name of Dot.

And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder
and long of leg. Indeed, she had been called
Amazon Dot Com.

And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why doth
thou travel far, from town to town, with thy
goods when thou can trade without ever leaving
thy tent?"

And Abraham did look at her as though she were
several saddle bags short of a camel load, but
simply said, "How, Dear?"

And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the
towns and drums in between to send messages
saying what you have for sale and they will reply
telling you which hath the best price.

And the sale can be made on the drums and

delivery by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)".

Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot
have her way with the drums, as long as he could
have his way with her.

And Dot said, "There will be a lot of banging in
the land". And Abraham replied, "It is my most
fervent wish that this be so".

And the drums rang out and were an immediate
success. Abraham sold all the goods he had, at
the top price, without ever moving from his tent.

But his success did arouse envy. A man named
Maccabia did secrete himself inside Abraham's
drum and was accused of insider trading.

And the young did take to Dot Com's trading as
doth the greedy horsefly to camel dung.

They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich
Dominican Siderites, or NERDS for short.

And lo the land was so feverish with joy at the
new riches and the deafening sound of drums, that
no one noticed that the real riches were going to
the drum maker, one Brother William of Gates, who
bought up every drum company in the land. And
indeed did insist on making drums that would only
work if you bought Brother Gates' drumsticks.

And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have
started is being taken over by others". And as
Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or as
it came to be known, "eBay", he said, "We need a
name of a service that reflects what we are".

And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner

"Whoopee!", said Abraham.

"No, YAHOO!", said Dot Com.
