    JABBERWOCKY
    Lewis Carroll
    (from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)

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


    "Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
    Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!"

    He took his vorpal sword in hand:
    Long time the manxome foe he sought --
    So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
    And stood awhile in thought.

    And, as in uffish thought he stood,
    The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
    Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
    And burbled as it came!

    One, two! One, two! And through and through
    The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
    He left it dead, and with its head
    He went galumphing back.

    "And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
    Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
    O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
    He chortled in his joy.


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


    WTF


    Modern day version

    Browser Mocky
    "Abacus"

    'Twas busy, and the server tones,
    Did beep and buzz all day,
    All satisfied were the Netscape users,
    And JAVA was okay.

    Beware the Browser Mock, my client,
    The contracts bind, the pages crash,
    Beware Bill Gates, the software giant,
    And all his monopoly trash.

    They took their presentation boards in hand,
    Long time they battled in court,
    So struggled on the lawyer band,
    Whining as their last resort.

    Computer buyers stood aghast,
    The Browser Mock, with exploiting ad,
    Said that Netscape could not last,
    And that made the clients mad!

    Internet Exploiter! We hate you!
    The browser market was taken back!
    A cream pie flew; Bill Gates will sue,
    But it made a triumphant whack!

    And hast thou deleted the Browser Mock?
    Come to my webpage Netscape friend,
    And all the JAVA script will rock!
    The joyful E-mail will even send!

    'Twas busy, and the server tones,
    Did beep and buzz all day,
    All satisfied were the Netscape users,
    And JAVA was okay.

    No, no, no. He had a bad cold, is all.

    And he used the same healing techniques Lilmiss uses.

    Wasn't he on opium most of the time, or is that just poppycock?


    Alice In Wonderland.

    1. Fast forward the movie to the place where Alice is chasing the rabbit.
    2. Stop right before she follows him into the hole.
    3. Play it frame by frame and you will see Alice run naked across the screen.

    I've never done it, btw.
