* In the ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' universe, the Internet is a giant Linksys router in a bunker somewhere. No one even knows how it works, so when the Internet goes down they're forced to try increasingly despearate methods ("Try communicating with it musically!"). The solution, of course, is to turn it off and on again.

* {{Eddsworld}}: The main characters try to earn some money by posting a video of Matt being crushed by a vending machine (ItMakesSenseInContext). After watching the video, the CEO of the internet believes [[MundaneMadeAwesome this is the most important discovery since air]] and rushes to inform the internet... and trips over the cable, turning the whole web off.

In RealLife, the Internet is a network of networks. While a few aspects of it are centralized (for instance, the allocation of blocks of IP addresses, the top-level parts of the DNS, and the allocation of Autonomous System numbers), it mostly works in a decentralized fashion, where each system operates independently and their interconnections are based on bilateral agreements and common protocols. There is no central company, organization, or government agency which controls or operates the Internet as a whole.

*** There are alternative root nameservers out there. In purely technical terms escaping VeriSign's clutches is as easy as setting up a new set of servers and moving over.
