triangle Script

What is it?
This, Jen, is the internet.
That's right. This is the internet?
The whole internet?
Yep. I asked for a loan of it, so that you could use it in your speech.
It's so small.
That's one of the surprising things about it.
Hang on, it doesn't have any wires or anything.
It's wireless.
Oh, yes, everything's wireless nowadays, yeah. I can use it in my speech? What if someone needs it?
Oh, no, no, people still be able to go online. It will still work.
Oh, good. Good.
I tell you, you present this to the shareholders and you will get quite a response.
Can I touch it? Ooh, it's so light.
Of course it is, Jen. The internet doesn't weigh anything.
Ha-ha. No, of course it doesn't. Ha-ha. Ha-ha.
Hey! What is Jen doing with the internet?
Moss said I could use it for my speech.
Are you insane? What if she drops it?
I won't drop it, I'll look after it.
No. No, no, no, no, Jen. No, this needs to go straight back to Big Ben.
Big Ben?
It goes on top of Big Ben. That's where you get the best reception.
I promise I won't let anything happen to it.
No, Jen, I'm sorry. The elders of the internet would never stand for it.
No, no, Roy. I spoke to the elders of the internet, not one hour ago. I told them about Jen winning the employee of the month and they were so impressed - wanted to do whatever they could to help.
Wait a minute, the elders of the internet? The elders of the internet know who I am? You've got to let me have it!
No, Jen, I'm sorry, it's just too risky.
Oh, please, Roy.
Well, Moss, has it been completely demagnetised?
By Stephen Hawking himself. He sends his congratulations.
Well, if it's OK with the Hawk.
So, can I have it?
You can.
Oh, don't forget your speech.
Oh, thank you. Slowly.
