Are you sure it wasn't via BoingBoing via MetaFilter?

The mayhem potential for that is wonderful.

Sweet! Time to make the new neighbors hate me!

Yeah arcade... where are the pancakes? I could have sworn this was a double post...

: )

Damn fine link though, Mathowie... I know my roommate could use a biohazard sign on his bathroom!

This is so fun... it's like catching your English teacher splitting an infinitive!

mrbula: I love it!

hmmm, I must not have something enabled properly, 'cause I can't seem to do one of my own. On the other hand, maybe I just had too much fun already this evening & I don't deserve more ;)

Neither can I. I wanted to do a "Danger: Toxic Overposter Ahead" to use before one of my serial rants. The possibilities are endless:

Double Post Alert: Stay Away From the MetaTalk!
Beware Imminent Aaron Comeback: Avoid Lefty Talk Now!

(So it's back to that HMTL tutorial over on WebMonkey, but thanks for the laughter!)

The graphics are handy. Our office now has a sign above the kettle sayng "Danger! Wash your cup before it sticks to your head!"

Beware Imminent Aaron Comeback: Avoid Lefty Talk Now!

Hee hee. Oh Aaron, Where Art Thou?

Could someone make up a sign reading: "Danger! Chronic over-use of JavaScript! Site doesn't work properly on Mac IE! What was wrong with plain old HTML?"?

If any MeFites be a member of that there place as well, there's a hugely amusing thread on the SA forums at the moment with the Goons posting their images made with this thingy.

Yes, it's that point in the evening. Wheeeee!

This is very cool. Too bad the server's being MeFi'ed now.

I swear I tried to tell you all about this before. But did you listen? Nooooo. Now everyone knows about it. Humph. Well, I knew them when they were still this funky alternative web-app that only got played on college stations after 2 am.

(Heck, I put it in Lake Effect, and the only person to pick it up was Jess ....)
