Another Misheard Lyric

Some of the spam I get masquerading as real email cracks me up. Like ones that pretend to reply to a message you sent: Re: lunch plans. Some of these fool the spam filters, but since I don't know the sender, I don't read it. (What were they thinking?) This morning I got one with the subject: Re: Re:

Two Re's were all I needed to start channeling Aretha Franklin:

Re, re, re, re, re
Just a little bit.
  .   .   .
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Find out what it means to me.
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Take care of TCP.
  .   .   .
Socket to me, Socket to me,
Socket to me, Socket to me.

TCP, sockets, who knew this song was about networking.
