“What surfs the internet and goes, ‘Choo, Choo’?"/"Thomas the Search Engine.”

An internet riddle is:

Q: What surfs the internet and goes, “Choo, Choo”?
A: Thomas the Search Engine.


The pun is on the fictional steam locomotive Thomas the Tank Engine. “Thomas the Search Engine” was printed in a 2007 newspaper, and the riddle was posted on Twitter on October 9, 2009.


Wikipedia: Thomas the Tank Engine
Thomas the Tank Engine is a fictional steam locomotive in The Railway Series books by the Reverend Wilbert Awdry and his son, Christopher. He became the most popular character in the series, and is the title character in the accompanying television spin-off series, Thomas & Friends.

Thomas is a steam engine and has a number 1 painted on his side. All of the locomotives in The Railway Series were based on prototypical engines; Thomas has origins in the E2 Class designed by Lawson Billinton in 1913. Thomas first appeared in 1946 in the second book in the series, Thomas the Tank Engine, and was the focus of the four short stories contained within. Thomas’ best friends are Percy and Toby.

In 1979, the British writer/producer Britt Allcroft came across the books, and arranged a deal to bring the stories to life as the TV series Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends (later simplified to Thomas & Friends).

I feel it is time to update various children’s books for the internet age. I suggest Five Children and IT, Swallows and Amazon and Thomas the Search Engine.
