Apart from my [WayBack] Jeroen Pluimers on Twitter: “Is that where /dev/null ends?… “, it totally reminded me of the below Dilbert strip which I could not find at first. So I was glad with [WayBack] David Sheryn Twitter:

[WayBack] Dilbert Comic Strip on 1996-05-02 | Dilbert by Scott Adams

Dilbert examines some cables in the Boss’s office and says, “Here’s your problem. The connection to the network is broken.” Dilbert continues, “Uh-oh. It’s a ‘token ring’ LAN. That means the token fell out and it’s in this room someplace.” Wally and Dilbert stand outside the Boss’s office, watching the Boss crawl around on the floor. Wally says, “You are the wind beneath my wings.” Dilbert says, “I’ll wait a week then tell him the token must be in the ‘Ethernet.'”
