Gore "informally discusses" Y2k, has it solved!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
Gore, Democrat Senators 'Informally Discuss' Y2K.
The "informal discussion", with inspiration from Sunday's Mr. Boffo comic strip, probably went something like this:
Gore: Ya know, Tipper and I talked about this 'y2k' thing the other night, and she solved it!!
Sen. Dorgan: Boffo!!
Gore: She said 'y2k' stands for the year 2000!!! ~[8^]--->

Algore solves Y2K, eh?
I guess we'll have to get used to new spellings for words such as "Mondak", "Tuesdak", "Wednesdak", "Thursdak", "Fridak", "Saturdak" and "Sundak" on his Internet now.

Bob Brinker, host of the radio talk show "Money Talk", says that while we know that Al Gore really didn't invent the Internet, he should be given credit for inventing the "algorithm." [It comes out better with his deadpan sarcasm.].

Having seen the VP in action, I think it's a good bet that he ain't got no rhythm!
Buh-duh-bing! *cymbal crash*
Thank you, thanks, you've been great, please tip your server, thanks...

That would be the Gores' patented family-planning method. :-d

And here I thought that ALGORITHMS refered to a Polka Band featuring the vocal stylings of our V.P.
