Think Geek

I love "Think Geek". Not only can I buy t-shirts and toys but I get emails with new items and hilarious introductions that make me laugh whilst I’m sitting at my desk. I try to explain them to my colleagues but sadly they just don’t understand.

Here is an excerpt:

Oh frabjous day!
In a missive that made designerds and code monkeys everywhere swoon with Valentiney love, our sweetheart Google announced they would stop supporting IE6. Or as our codeslingers call it, IE666. Google pulled out their vorpal blades and with a snicker-snack, they left IE6 dead. Hearing the news was just like being in high school and getting a pass out of P.E. We are chortling with joy. Callooh! Callay!

It is referrencing that wonderful piece of poetry by Lewis Carrol, “The Jabberwocky” which is from “Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There”

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

The full poem can be found in many places including:
