Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Monkeys, they are curious and have the proper paw structure.

Bees, you might hate them, but they are some of the best communicators in nature. You do understand that most of the structure of the internet is already based on how bees communicate right?

To those who voted dolphin, just a reminder, they are only here for the fish. Mice are the obvious mental giants on this planet. Duh...

The mice would've created the computer that runs the internets

Move along. Nothing to see here.

Apparently no one has played Star Control II or III. The precursors would've invented the Internet...before they turned themselves into cows.

BTW, you can get Star Control II for your Android phone. Its call Ur-Quan Masters. An awesome cult classic!

Cats are the only species with the desire for the limited and impersonal interactions that are facilitated by the internet. They wouldn't develop the applications for flash crowds but everything else fits them to a tee.

I dunno...evidently this whole "earth" thing is some giant experiment of the mice. I think they've got something far more impressive than our primitive internet already.

Elephants are pretty bright, and have you seen that internet video of the elephant playing in the surf at the beach?

Ants-They communicate using chemicals so the internet would be a bit more damp. And maybe fragrant. Fire Ants will Rule the World!

Mice since they had the Earth built in the first place.

Nothing is free but if you are lucky it can be inexpensive.
