“Why is there a shirt and tie on the telly?"/"It’s a smart TV.”

A joke about a “smart TV” was posted on Twitter on May 19, 2013:

“My wife said, ‘Why is there a shirt and tie on the telly?’ I said, ‘It’s a smart tv.’”


Wikipedia: Smart TV
A smart TV, sometimes referred to as connected TV, hybrid TV, or intelly (portmanteau of the words intelligent and telly), is a television set with integrated Internet and interactive “Web 2.0” features. Smart TV is a technological convergence between computers and flatscreen television sets and set-top boxes. Besides the traditional functions of television sets and set-top boxes provided through traditional broadcasting media, these devices can also provide Internet TV, online interactive media, over-the-top content (OTT), as well as on-demand streaming media, and home networking access.
