Three men, a German, a Japanese and a hillbilly were sitting naked in a sauna.  Suddenly there was a beeping sound.  The German pressed his forearm and the beeping stopped.  The others looked at him questioningly.

“That was my pager,” he said, “I have a micro chip under the skin of my arm.”

A few minutes later a phone rang.  The Japanese fellow lifted his palm to his ear.

When he was finished he explained, “That was my mobile phone.  I have a micro chip in my hand.”

The hillbilly felt decidedly low tech, but not to be outdone he decided he had to do something just as impressive.  He stepped out of the sauna and went to the bathroom.  He returned with a piece of toilet paper hanging from his behind.  The others raised their eyebrows and stared at him.

The hillbilly finally said, “Well, will you look at that, I’m getting a fax.”
