A slow modem is a pigeon

Do you have a modem that is really slow? Then you have pigeon! If it takes a long time to load a webpage, you might as well load that page via a carrier pigeon. Thus, your modem is like a pigeon.

I submitted this new definition for pigeon to Urban Dictionary:

Word:
Pigeon

Definition:
A slow modem. When your internet connection is really sluggish, you might have a pigeon for a modem.

Usage:
The pigeon provided by my cable company is so incredibly slow.

Let’s hope the linguistic elitists at Urban Dictionary accept my definition.

Interesting side fact:
The dictionary definition for modem is: A combined device for modulation and demodulation, for example, between the digital data of a computer and the analog signal of a telephone line.

Thus, modem is short for MODulation and DEModulation. Incredible! I love internet.

Update:
My definition was accepted by Urban Dictionary!
