Humor: The Oatmeal explains net neutrality like only The Oatmeal can
The net neutrality issue finally got into the public spotlight as president Obama made headlines regarding the matter. Prompted by a short, but outrageous enough Twitter-statement by Senator Ted Cruz, The Oatmeal's Matthew Inman chalked up an open letter that's equal parts net neutrality education, politician ignorance mocking, informed fact stating, and trademark Oatmeal humor. 

Inman asks readers to imagine being forced into using a lame search engine by Comcast, else they open Googl and their internet speed gets throttled or browser riddled with ads. What sounds like a dystopian vision that went wild quickly becomes reality as the cartoonist turns to the Comcast-Netflix throttling issue to give his point some worrying authenticity. 

It's worth checking out the infographic, whether for catching up on the issue, or just for laughs.
