It's not Carrier Pigeon IP, but it's close.
(usenet, smirk)

A friend who recently graduated from MIT and went to work in
California made this up, after several weeks of daily outages of the

Top 10 less reliable networks than NSFnet's T3:

10.  Cans tied together with string during a San Fran 8.5 earthquake.
9.  The Arthritic's Morse Code net.
8.  AT&T's net during a transparent software upgrade.
7.  Bouncing signals off satellite, orbiting asteroid near Alpha Centauri.
6.  "Great Valleys Of The World"'s semaphore net. 
5.  Chain-packet net (every time you get a packet, send off two more).
4.  Using carrier mackerel across the Sahara.
3.  Single Side Band transmitted from ground zero of a thermonuclear explosion.
2.  100 monkeys sending at random (by chance,
      they'll eventually send the information you want sent).
1.  L.A.'s smog signal net.

PS I'm entering this over the T3. It only took me 3 tries over 40 minutes.
