Huh, I thought it was the David Carson Graphic Design Generator.

Ha! I deleted a sentence saying "some pages look downright David Carson-esque" before posting it. It's definitely very Raygun with font tags.

Only the Google Ads are unaffected. Proves to me that Google runs the Web.
That, and the fact that my blog is up to #3 on searches for "Wendell", but they still won't let me join AdSense.

Let me be the first to say some of the recent FPPs look better this way...

i thought the point of a ransom note that, while cut and pasted, it remained legible enough to get the point across. if i were sent this garbled mess after my daughter/wife/diplomat turned up missing, chances are i'd start receiving body parts in the mail before i deciphered the message and figured out what it was the bad men wanted from me.

cute, though. i dig stuff like this.

Also in mirror style , although it looks like individual words are reversed only when they're not part of a link.

Yes, form must follow function. Especially when it comes to ransom notes.
