Comic Background Radiation

This idea is of course the end-point for people making a Google search with a specific typo. This idea also finds value in the chaotic noise of deep space radiation. The background radiation from the big bang, 13.7 billion years ago, can be listened to as an infinite series of random data. It is probable in this endless sea of data that fragments of meaningful text can be picked out. Eventually one might find a fragment of text that reads as a joke. In an infinite quantity of random data you may find the best joke ever told. Of course, this may have already happened, in the billions of years we haven't been paying close attention to this comic background radiation, but we'll never know.

       I thought the existence of the universe WAS the joke.

       Personally, I've always thought the neutrino background was funnier - and had more original material - than those infrared and microwave johnny-come-lately copycats.

       Combined with data from the Large Hadron Collander, we’ll be well along the path towards solving the universe’s mysteries. The important ones.

       Who's gonna tell him? You know the part about jutta coming to the home of anyone that does "that" and chopping off their fingers...oh wait...I think I might be dreaming or something, or maybe watching too much Netflix. maybe it's ok?

       That would explain why I'm typing with my nose.

       Hmm..
