Ok, ok, it's a real curtain not a digital one, & nope, he's not a wizard AT ALL!
(we're definitely not in Kansas any more either - I'm sure they don't make masturbation references in illustrations there - no sirree!)

(Article by Michael Holden)
Two men in a pub – reassured no doubt by the physical nature of their conversation – were speaking loudly about the benefits of doing things in the real, as opposed to the digital, world.
Man 1 "What time are the band on?"
Man 2 "11.15 I think."
Man 1 "You think?"
Man 2 (wearily) "I asked the venue. They have a site and I sent an email saying, 'When are they on?' The woman emailed me back and said, 'Why are you asking – are you in the band?'"
Man 1 (half laughing) "Jesus!"
Man 2 "The band have a site as well – I emailed them – they didn't get back to me."
Man 1 "This is the problem with the internet: everybody's got a fucking site – but who are the idiots behind them? I mean, if you were running a real business and you heard someone not answering the phone – or delivering basic information – you could step in."
Man 2 "You do wonder how much of this is driving the recession – digital idiocy, dressed up as work."
Man 1 "True. It's incompetence veiled behind a virtual curtain."
Man 2 "You pull back the curtain – and there's nothing there. No one."
Man 1 "Not even the Wizard of Oz. Not even an old man who might apologise and give you something useful."
Man 2 "Not even. Pull back the curtain and there's just someone there wanking off – going, 'Why? Are you in the band?'"
Man 1 (excited) "The wanker of Oz!"
Man 2 (happy to have worked out a phrase that those around him would be hearing a lot more of) "Exactly."

Front cover for Communicators magazine on internet security (& a great excuse for PROPER robbers!) Things would be sooo much simpler if people dressed to type & animals ate what they're supposed to eat (bears - honey, elephants - buns etc.)
