Quinte, On. real estate agent: That Internet Guy

That Internet Guy

You find this little fellow all over the internet.

He changes his appearance from time to time, but you know it's him. He doesn't look very threatening at all.

In this picture he's green and he's giving you a friendly wave.



Sometimes he will be a different colour.

Perhaps he has some chamelion DNA.

He's obviously a very strong little guy, he's lifting a magnifying glass that's about half his own size with just one hand.


He obviously does go to the bathroom. He likes to read a newspaper when he goes.

A newspaper all about RSS feeds.

He's a really techy little guy.

Did I mention that he is a handy little chap?

See for yourself.

This is him as he's best known.

He's carrying a wrench (a spanner to you Brits). He's on his way to fix something.


He likes to make himself useful.

Mr. internet guy likes to deliver messages to people.

This one looks like a birthday card.

Or maybe it's an envelope with some money in it for Chinese New Year. Kung Hei Fat Choi Mr. internet guy.



Sometimes he loses a bit of weight and then gathers his friends together.

They go on a mission.

Purposefully they stride forward together in unison delivering envelopes.

When he loses weight he becomes more aggressive. Maybe its the extra energy.


These missions always end up the same way.

Here Mr. internet guy is trying to wrestle a blog away from one of his friends.

I don't like to see this happen. Fighting isn't the solution Mr. internet guy. Can't we all just get along, there's enough blogs for everybody. The blogosphere is bountiful.

Maloclm, I think you have happened upon the morphing of Mr Internet guy...  between the single Mr Internet guy with a letter and multiple Mr Internet guys with letters we seemed to have a split in the tree of evolution.

Are we witness two different lines, like the difference between Neanderthals and the forefather of homo sapiens?  Or is this just the evolution of one single line?

Reading between the lines here I feel I may have missed something??  I know there is a secret message in there somewhere.  Now I just have to crack the secret code.

Thanks for the translation in your post. I had no idea what a wrench was. It was not in my citizens exam :)

Chris, it could well be a split in the evolutionary line. Somewhere there's a missing link out there.

Jenny, don't think too much, there's nothing cryptic here.

Valerie, this is excatly hoe rumours start.

Peter and Linda, if only we could be as tireless and omnipresent as that little guy.

Barbara-Jo, he does get around quite a bit.

Len, no, we can't leave the gals out either.

Sheila, thanks very much, I just see that fellow on many wed adverts, and I wonder who he is.

That's O.K. Ellie, I have a lorry full of translations if you ever need help.
