The Internet Of Thongs

This new concept of the "Internet of Thongs" is being bandied about as the Next Big Thing, which it most certainly is not. Why, there have been titillating items available online since the days of the BBS (Bulletin Board Systems); indeed, one only has to look through literature of the ages to see an abundance of smut; low-cut dresses, thongs, shapely ankles, négligées, bare buttocks and the rest. The very notion that we are so sophisticated in this day and age that we would presume to invent this Internet of Thongs concept smacks of a naïve hubris of the worst sort. We do love to puff ourselves up these days - why, when I was younger... 

Wait, what? It's the "Internet of Things"? 

Well, that's entirely different. Never mind.
