Debbie Does Intertubes

A friend and I were talking about the early days of surfing the intarwebs, back in 1994 when it first became the thing to do. Some web sites didn't even have DNS names; they were just raw IP addresses. So, when you were telling someone about a site, you either gave the IP, or the friendly name if there was one. A group of us geeks were standing around talking about sites (or, in those days, "home pages") when one of our more brilliant co-workers asked, "Why does everyone keep saying, 'Debbie, Debbie, Debbie'? Who is Debbie?"
