“I refuse to bookmark a website…” (joke)

A joke about bookmarks on the internet was posted on Twitter by Andrew Nadeau on March 7, 2022, and received over 114,200 likes:
       
“I refuse to bookmark a website. I will simply use the far more logical system of keeping 400 tabs open on 32 browser windows until my computer crashes and I can finally be free.”
     
       
Wikipedia: Bookmark (digital)
In the context of the World Wide Web, a bookmark is a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) that is stored for later retrieval in any of various storage formats. All modern web browsers include bookmark features. Bookmarks are called favorites or Internet shortcuts in Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge, and by virtue of that browser’s large market share, these terms have been synonymous with bookmark since the First Browser War.
