Nobody knows the trouble you've seen--especially frustrated users and corporate bigwigs, who have no tolerance for the downtime that inevitably comes to all who brave the world of the wide Web. It's time to take back control with this foolproof letter of apology.

"Dear Corporate Users,

We have a down Internet connection. Someone deleted the Internet when he dragged the little blue 'e' to the recycle bin. We are working with our Internet service provider to restore the whole World Wide Web using tape backup. This will take some time, because the backup storage facility is on another planet. With NASA currently grounded, we will have to enlist the aid of the Russian space agency. We appreciate your forbearance."
