The most hilarious academic paper ever...

It's pretty old, but I discovered it only a few days ago. Some of Israel's brightest minds (such as Shimon Schocken - former dean of the the Efi Arazi School of Computer Science at the Interdisciplinary Center Hertzlia and Yossi Vardi - one of the most prominent hi-tech entrepreneurs and founder of tens of companies) joined forces to write a technical paper claiming that Snails Are Faster Than ADSL. The title is funny, the content is hilarious - take the time to read it and enjoy yourself!

Hi Ilan,

As the authors themselves state, this is not a new idea. Its just an expansion of Tannenbaum's observation. I do give them credit for pointing out this reference in spite of their being Israelis. *This* is the remarkable trait of this article. Yours, Eli
