The tree of knowledge
Heard something peculiar today. A guy at the barbershop referred to the internet as "The Tree of Knowledge. He wasn't anyone special, just some guy in the barbershop clowning around. There's always someone in the barbershop clowning around.
"She invited me up to her place and fixed me some spaghetti, I didn't leave the apartment for a month! And don't drink the lemonade!"
"Lemonade?" One of the Barbers added.
"Yeah, Man! Lemonade, Koolaid, Countrytime, whatever!"
"What're you talking about?" One of the other barbers asked.
"The cake, Man! The cake!"
"What cake?"
"Don't you know Chris Brown's song 'The Cake'! The cake, Man! The cake!"
"What're you talking about?"
"The cake, man! There's Voodoo spell in the cake! And there's one for lemonade, too! The girls in the back chimed in and put in their two cents:
"I don't need that to get a man."
"Whatcha say Kate, you don't need no voodoo to get you a man?" My barber chimed in with a laugh.
"I throw some of this on 'I'm!" She snapped her fingers and threw her head back.
"Whip it on me!" The first barber shouted.
"Sho' you right!" I said.
"It's true do'." The fool added, "check the internet!" That's when he said it: "everything's on the internet. It's like 'The Tree of Knowledge'." A vision hit me of the tree of knowledge as a metaphor for the internet! He is right! Everything anyone wants to know is right there at there finger tips, the secrets of the universe, all they have to do is press search button!
