Whoa...it's good to see The Village People getting some gigs, even if it is in the name of Homeland Security.

Funny, but a bit under-developed. I laughed, and then I wanted to vi the code. Thanks, kirkaracha!

Pfft. C'mon, Q. Get with it. Everything works in IE6. However, Microsoft is an evil hateful plague upon the world that no man can simply stand by and watch devour our children. It must be fought!

Viva la revolucion!

Not very memorable; I keep forgetting which is a higher threat level, the Biker or The Cowboy...

They should've done it with a group that only has FIVE members, like the Rolling Stones ("WARNING... WE ARE AT THREAT LEVEL MICK... THREAT LEVEL MICK...")

But then, in case of a national emergency, everyone could stay at the Y.M.C.A...

I saw the current San Francisco Mime Troupe show today (they are not mimes, but an agit-prop musical theatre crew and local institution).

My favorite line: "We are no longer at Magenta alert. We have entered Ultraviolet alert, a threat level so alarming it cannot be seen with the human eye!"

Terror Alert Level

Yeah, old. But oddly memorable.

Okay, so maybe I just wanted to try embedding an image.

It's a cute little page. It does what it needs to do. How many people didn't catch on till they got to 'construction worker?" Even though I knew it had to be a gag of some sort, I just kind of blithely noted that the police officer seemed to have a really open-collared shirt on and kept clicking. Boy, if that's any indication, we all need to be more vigilant.
