You know how the elderly can sometimes form some fairly quirky opinions about computer usage? I knew a gent who USED ALL CAPS, FOR EVERYTHING, ALL THE TIME. WORD PROCESSOR DOCUMENTS. SPREADSHEETS. EMAIL. "IT JUST MAKES EVERYTHING WORK BETTER," HE TOLD ME.

GOOD EVENING. IN THE NEXT FEW HOURS, KEYBOARDS FROM HERE WILL JOIN OTHERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD, AND YOU WILL BE LAUNCHING THE LARGEST INTERNET MOVEMENT IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND.

MANKIND -- THAT WORD SHOULD HAVE NEW MEANING FOR ALL OF US TODAY.

WE CAN'T BE CONSUMED BY OUR PETTY DIFFERENCES ANYMORE.

WE WILL BE UNITED IN OUR COMMON INTERESTS.

PERHAPS IT'S FATE THAT TODAY IS THE 22ND OF OCTOBER, AND YOU WILL ONCE AGAIN BE FIGHTING FOR OUR FREEDOM -- NOT FROM TYRANNY, OPPRESSION, OR PERSECUTION, BUT FROM MUNDANITY.

WE'RE FIGHTING FOR OUR RIGHT TO SHOUT, TO BE HILARIOUSLY OBNOXIOUS.

AND SHOULD WE WIN THE DAY, THE 22ND OF OCTOBER WILL NO LONGER BE KNOWN AS AN INTERNET HOLIDAY, BUT AS THE DAY WHEN THE WORLD DECLARED IN ONE EXTREMELY LOUD VOICE:

WE WILL NOT GO QUIETLY INTO THE NIGHT

WE WILL NOT VANISH WITHOUT A FIGHT

WE'RE GOING TO LIVE ON

WE'RE GOING TO SURVIVE

TODAY, WE CELEBRATE OUR INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY

posted by killdevil at 7:26 PM on October 21, 2009


i and the wombats did our best to prevent this, but apparently it wasn't enough. i even posted it before midnight in australia where the wombats were most beloved but couldn't keep the momentum going around the world. *sigh*

is there anything that could kill the allure of caps lock day at metafilter? maybe if GLENN BECK endorses it on his show, since he's always SHOUTING anyway. yeah, that's the ticket. i'll register GLENNBECKENDORSESCAPSLOCKDAY.COM and when his lawyers come after me, i'll just let him have the domain...

A CAPSLOCK WOULD LOCK AS MUCH CAPS AS A CAPSLOCK COULD, IF A CAPSLOCK COULD LOCK CAPS
posted by Ghidorah at 8:00 PM on October 21, 2009


It's CAPS LOCK DAY
There's no need to be afraid
At CAPS LOCK DAY, we let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at CAPS LOCK DAY

But say a prayer

Pray for the other ones
At CAPS LOCK DAY it's hard, but when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears
And the CAPS LOCK DAY bells that ring there are the clanging
chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you

And there won't be snow in Africa this CAPS LOCK DAY
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
(Oooh) Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it's CAPS LOCK DAY at all?

(Here's to you) raise a glass for everyone
(Here's to them) underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's CAPS LOCK DAY at all?

Feed the world
Feed the world

Feed the world

Let them know it's CAPS LOCK DAY again

Feed the world
Let them know it's CAPS LOCK DAY again

TO HONOUR CAPS LOCKS DAY, I WILL NOW SHARE ALMOST TEN OF MY COMMUNIST JOKE.

------

#THE NUMBER ONE.

WHAT DOESN'T BUZZ AND DOESN'T FIT UP YOUR ARSE?

-A SOVIET-MADE ARSE-BUZZING MACHINE.

------

HANG IN THERE, COMRADES. IT'S ONLY START. NUMBER TEN HAS BICYCLES, AND EXCREMENT.

------

#THE NUMBER TWO.

SO THIS BBC JOURNALIST WAS WALKING AROUND BUCHAREST. HE ASKED A MAN, HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT CEAUCESCU?

-WELL, I'D RATHER NOT SAY.

OH COME ON!

-PEOPLE ARE LISTENING. FOLLOW ME.

SO HE FOLLOWS THE MAN INTO SOME SORT OF ALLEY HALFWAY ACROSS TOWN.

NOW WILL YOU TELL ME, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF CEAUCESCU?

-NOT HERE. THE WALLS HAVE EARS.

SO THE JOURNALIST GOES ALONG WITH THE MAN INTO THIS APARTMENT BUILDING. IN THE HALLWAY:

SURELY YOU WILL TELL ME YOUR OPINION OF CEAUCESCU NOW? I DON'T HAVE ALL DAY YOU KNOW.

-TOO DANGEROUS. COME WITH ME.

SO HE FOLLOWS THE MAN INTO A DARK CELLAR BENEATH THE BLOCK OF FLATS. HE REITERATES HIS QUESTION:

SO, IF YOU DON'T MIND ME ASKING, WHAT DO YOU THINK OF CEAUCESCU?

SAID THE MAN,

-WELL, I KIND OF LIKE HIM, ACTUALLY.

------

RELAX YOUR SELVES AND STAY TUNED; THE LAST ONE HAS AN ITALIAN!!!1! BUT FIRST:

------

#THE NUMBER THREE.

SO THIS MAN IS STANDING IN LINE FOR BREAD WITH HIS FRIEND. AFTER SEVEN HOURS, HE CAN'T STAND THE WAIT ANY LONGER AND SAYS, SCREW THIS, I'M GONNA KILL THAT BASTARD STALIN, AND WALKS OFF.

COUPLE HOURS LATER, HE RETURNS TO HIS FRIEND STILL STANDING IN LINE. "SO, DID YOU KILL HIM?" THE FRIEND ENQUIRES,

"NO," HE SAYS, "THE LINE WAS EVEN LONGER THERE."

------

NOW, DON'T SELL YOUR LADA JUST YET, FOR THERE IS:

------

#THE NUMBER FOUR.

THIS YOUNG MAN APPLIED FOR AN AUTOMOBILE WITH THE SOVIET BUREAUCRACY. STAMP HERE, APPROVED FORM THERE, FINALLY HE GOT TO THE LAST OF THE AGENCIES, WAS APPROVED AND INFORMED HE WOULD RECEIVE HIS VEHICLE IN TEN YEARS.

"MORNING OR AFTERNOON?" HE ASKED.

WHY?

"WELL, THE PLUMBER IS COMING THE MORNING!"

------

CAPITALIST DRUM SOUND! REMEMBER, COMRADE #10 HAS SLOVENIAN HUMOUR! BUT NEXT UP:

------

#THE NUMBER FIVE.

------

APOLOGIES, COMRADE! WE'RE ALL FRESH OUT OF THE NUMBER FIVE. DON'T WORRY, THE LAST ONE HAS SMUGGLING JOKES. HA!

------

#THE NUMBER SIX.

SO PRESIDENT REAGAN WENT TO VISIT WITH SECRETARY ANDROPOV.

DURING THE TOUR, ANDROPOV GOT TO BRAGGING ABOUT THE SUPERIOR DIET OF THE GLORIOUS SOVIET ARMY.

"DID YOU KNOW OUR GOOD SOVIET SOLDIERS GET FED ON 2,000 CALORIES A DAY?" HE TOLD REAGAN.

ANSWERED THE PRESIDENT, "WELL, AMERICAN TROOPS GET 3,000 CALORIES PER DAY."

"NONSENSE!" REBUTTED THE SECRETARY, "NO MAN CAN EAT THAT MANY POTATOES!"

------

THANK YOU! I'LL BE HERE ALL WEEK. TRY THE POTATOES!

------

#THE NUMBER SEVEN.

ALRIGHT, SO LENIN, STALIN, KRUSHCHEV AND BREZHNEV ARE ALL TRAVELLING TOGETHER ON A TRAIN.

(WARNING! PLEASE DISREGARD THE WINDOWS OF THE HISTORY OR YOU WILL BE IN DANGER OF SPOILING THE JOKE.)

SO, ALL OF A SUDDEN THE CARRIAGE GRINDS TO A HALT.

AFTER ALL STARING AT ONE ANOTHER FOR A BIT, LENIN SUGGESTS:

"MAYBE WE SHOULD GET SOME PEASANTS TO SUBBOTNIK AND GET THE TRAIN IN ORDER?"

BUT THEN STALIN LOOKS AROUND, STICKS HIS OUTSIDE THE WINDOW AND YELLS, "IF THE TRAINS DOESN'T START MOVING ANY TIME SOON, THE DRIVER SHALL BE EXECUTED!!!"

AS THE TRAIN DOESN'T SHOW ANY SIGNS OF MOTION, KRUSHCHEV SUGGESTS TAKING THE RAILS FROM BEHIND THE TRAIN AND USE THEM TO CONSTRUCT THE TRACKS IN FRONT.

YET STILL THE TRAIN DOESN'T MOVE.

AFTER ANOTHER AWKWARD SILENCE, BREZHNEV BUTTS IN AND SAYS: "COMRADES, COMRADES! WHY NOT JUST DRAW THE CURTAINS, TURN ON A GRAMOPHONE AND *PRETEND* WE'RE MOVING!?"

------

A BONUS PUNCHLINE TO THE AFOREMENTIONED JOKE FOR OUR CAPITALIST "FRIENDS":

------

#THE NUMBER EIGHT.

AND THEN GORBACHEV ENTERS THE CARRIAGE AND INTERJECTS:

"HAY GUYS! WHY DON'T WE DISEMBARK AND SIMPLY START PUSHING THE CARRIAGE TOWARD ITS DESTINATION?"

------

THANK YOU. TRY THE GLASNOST!

------

#THE NUMBER NINE.

SO THIS LAW STUDENT IS AN APPRENTICE TO A SOVIET JUDGE. HE WALKS INTO THE JUDGE'S OFFICE ONLY TO FIND HIM IN A FIT OF LAUGHTER,

"WHAT'S SO FUNNY?" HE ENQUIRES.

"OH MAN, MY DEAR YURI," HE REPLIES, ALL OUT OF BREATH. "I JUST HEARD THE FUNNIEST JOKE."

SAYS YURI EXPECTEDLY, "WELL, WHAT IS IT?"

"OH, I COULDN'T TELL YOU. I JUST SENTENCED THE GUY TO TEN YEARS FOR TELLING IT."

------

WHICH SHOULD BRING US TO:

------

#THE LONG AWAITED NUMBER TEN.

SO ROBERTO IS FROM TRIESTE. HE GETS A JOB IN SLOVENIA AND CYCLES ACROSS THE BORDER EVERY MORNING AND BACK EVERY EVENING. MILAN THE BORDER GUARD IS ESPECIALLY WARY OF HIM: EVERY MORNING HE TAKES APART HIS BICYCLE TO MAKE SURE THERE IS NO CONTRABAND IN THE PIPES.

"DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO DECLARE, SIR?" HE WOULD ASK.

"NO SIR!", ROBERTO ALWAYS REPLIED.

THIS WENT ON FOR YEARS UNTIL THE IRON CURTAIN FINALLY FELL.

A FEW MONTHS LATER ROBERTO RAN INTO MILAN IN A CAFE IN TRIESTE.

THEY SHARED A FEW BEERS AND THEN MILAN SAID, "SORRY BUT I HAVE TO ASK. YOU WERE AN ITALIAN WORKING IN SLOVENIA. I KNOW YOU WERE SMUGGLING. WHAT WAS YOUR CONTRABAND?"

ROBERTO SHRUGGED AND SAID, "OH, JUST BICYCLES."

------

HAPPY CAPS LOCK DAY, MY CAPITALIST COMRADES!

HERE'S A QUESTION THAT I THINK IS TOO OFTEN OVERLOOKED. THAT THIS SHOULD BE SO IS UNDERSTANDABLE, BECAUSE WHEN IT ISN'T CAPS LOCK DAY PEOPLE GENERALLY AREN'T THINKING ABOUT CAPS LOCK DAY–RELATED MATTERS, AND WHEN IT IS CAPS LOCK DAY THEY ARE, OBVIOUSLY, TOO BUSY CELEBRATING THE DAY ITSELF AND TAKING PART IN ITS MANY FESTIVE RITUALS. FOR INSTANCE THEY ARE DRUNK ON DOCKS.

THE QUESTION PERTAINS DIRECTLY TO THE FESTIVITIES AND THAT MIGHT BE ANOTHER REASON PEOPLE ARE GENERALLY LEERY OF ENTERTAINING IT (THE QUESTION, I MEAN).

CONSIDER THE SONG WE SING. IT BEGINS "EVERY YEAR WE MAKE SALMON FOR TOAST". TRUE! I, AT LEAST, *DO* DO THIS EVERY YEAR. BUT IS IT A COINCIDENCE? THAT IS, IS IT SIMPLY THAT IT HAPPENS TO BE THE CASE THAT WE MAKE SALMON FOR TOAST EVERY 22ND OF OCTOBER, A DAY WHICH IS ALSO INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY? OR IS THERE SOMETHING ABOUT THE DAY ITSELF WHICH MAKES IT (AS THE GREAT POET OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR OWEN MIGHT PUT IT) "SWEET AND PROPER" TO MAKE SALMON FOR TOAST ON OCTOBER 22ND, BECAUSE IT IS INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY?

IF SOMEONE FAILED TO MAKE SALMON FOR TOAST, WOULD THAT BE BLAMEWORTHY? WOULD THEY BE PROFANING INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY? WHAT IS THE CONNECTION HERE, ANYWAY?

SO I'D REALLY LIKE TO SEE MORE PEOPLE USING THE BLINK TAG BECAUSE ONE OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS IS TO SELECT ALL THE TEXT ON A PAGE AND THEN SEE JUST A LITTLE BIT OF THE SELECTION COLOURING DISAPPEAR BECAUSE OF THE BLINK TAG.

THERE WAS A GREAT COMMENT LAST YEAR I THINK THAT MADE FOR A VERY PLEASING AESTHETIC EFFECT BECAUSE IT USED THE BLINK TAG A LOT.
