You should see what they call a Mac OS in Redmond.

That snaky rectangle thing on his main page is kind of annoying.

The first time you see it, yes. Every other time after that, increasingly annoying in its cutesy pointlessness. But this was lolworthy, and his SpeadTweet is also funny, so we're cool.

Your favourite web browser sucks.

This actually works fine in IE8. I'd show you a screenshot but I'd have to bring out the gimp.

People say things like:
Elliott Kember uses a lot of colored boxes for no apparent reason.

IE doesn't render right because of the metric system.

IE doesn't render right because Marsellus told it to take a dive.

twoleftfeet - the snakey thing on the main page is kind of annoying until you realize that it's a fully playable recreation of the "Snake" game in HTML 4 and CSS. Seriously. Start hitting arrow keys, you can control the snake. The only rule it doesn't follow is that it wraps at page top and bottom, rather than crashing. I was impressed.

I want these motherfucking snakes off the motherfucking page!

Did you notice a sign out in front of my house that said CSS3 support?

No. I didn't.

You know WHY you didn't see that sign?

Why?

'Cause it ain't there, 'cause supporting CSS3 ain't my fucking business, that's why!

Describe what border-radius looks like!

Well, in Firefox it looks like this:
-moz-border-radius

In Safari it looks like this:
-webkit-border-radius

In standards-compliant browsers:
border-radius

When applying border-radius, you may feel a slight sting. That's CSS fucking with you. Fuck CSS. CSS only hurts, it never helps.

Five long years, he supported IE 6. Then when he died of dysentery, he gave me the login. I supported that uncomfortable hunk of code for two years. Then, after seven years, I was sent home to my family.

And now, little man, I give the login to you.

If I'm curt about your browser, it's because render time is a factor. I think fast, I surf fast, and I need this thing to load fast if you want to get out of this. So pretty please, with sugar on top, load the fucking code.

I just assumed that there was no more content when I tried to scroll using the cursors, and nothing happened. Which is a pretty poor bit of front-page usability for a hotshot web 2.0 designer.

That's funny. You used "usability" and "web 2.0" in the same sentence...and you weren't being ironic.

Get the fuck out my face with that no-CSS shit! The motherfucker that said that shit never had to pick up itty-bitty pieces of broke-ass code on account of your dumb nonstandard ass. Well, I'm a strict-doctype-layin' motherfucker, motherfucker! Every time my fingers touch conditional comments, I'm Superfly T.N.T., I'm the Guns of the Navarone! IN FACT, WHAT THE FUCK AM I DOIN' WITH IE6 BUG FIXES? YOU'RE THE MOTHERFUCKER WHO SHOULD BE ON QA DETAIL!

I'm not entirely sure that fucking around with CSS3 before it's finalized is really a good idea. Uniform CSS2 support is what will make me happy at the moment, CSS3 is just grandstanding and showing off.

I want you to go on del.icio.us and find that DOM reference I bookmarked.

Which one is it?

It's the one tagged "BadMotherfucker."
