The Day The Internet Retired

The internet has been a lot of fun, you guys. We’ve all had some laughs and found true love. But if we agree that the internet has at this point become a source for distraction that relies on an ever-increasing threshold of strangeness and provocation, then we can all agree that the internet has reached it’s apogee and we can move it down to a nice two-bedroom condo in Florida and leave it to live the rest of its days in clement weather and mild boredom. Because shit does not get any weirder or more provocative of a strange distraction than this video (after the jump.)

BoingBoing offers an explanation as to the origin of this video, but is there really an explanation as to the origin of this video?

Goodbye, internet. Auld Lang Syne and all that. I don’t know what we’ll do around here with out you. Can I have your stapler?
