Few people will remember "thin wire" ethernet, the 10base2 ethernet used before today’s 10baseT ethernet (which uses the RJ45 connector which looks like a phone jack, but bigger).
Anyway, you had to "terminate" the ends of your cables. And you sometimes had "T" connectors if your machine had to be hooked to more than one other point on the network.
Turns out, these terminators and "T"-connectors make neat cubicle art. (It kind of looks like Maggie Simpson is trying to smoke out of one.)
Pirates Of Darkwater toy, Simpsons, calendar, ethernet terminator.
