A three minute fairy tail

Boy meets girl, you know how it goes. The catch? They're made from Myriad Pro. This short TED talk by someone called Rives was cute, and whimsical enough to make me smile.

I hope it makes you smile as well.

I wish TED would have more talks under 5 minutes long, but not necessarily talks that force me to bend my neck 90 degrees to the left half the time.

You walk like a waltz, meaning you stop every three steps and sometimes rotate.

"Short and sweet. Very nice."

That sums it up perfectly, I think. Thanks for sharing!

Was a fun watch, not really poetry.

YOU'RE NOT REALLY POETRY!

Yeah. I told you, cjorgenson.

On what basis do you make that claim? It seemed pretty clear to me that it was poetry.

But don't poetry use the Comic Sands?

Poetry or not, it was fun.

It was awesome, sounded great, and made me smile.

Great Job!

Neither poetry or fun, but TED. Perhaps TED will become a genre of expresion all its own some day.

*\o/* for TED.

Ah. It's slam poetry. Not actual poetry.
