HALLMARK — WHEN YOU COME TO SHOUT THE VERY BEST!!!!

LET TEH REVENGE OF TEH TELETYPES BEGIN!!!

DOWN WITH LOWER CASES!!! DOWN WITH GUI WINDOWS!!! GIVE ME A CASE-INSENSITIVE COMMAND LINE PROMPT OR GIVE ME DEATH!!!!

DR. PHIL

THINGS ARE NOT ALWAYS
HOW THEY SEEM,
IN FACT,
SOMETIMES SHOUTING

IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET ATTENTION!
SO RATHER THAN LOOK

FOR HIDDEN MEANING,
UNDERSTAND THAT THERE
NEVER, EVER IS ANY IN THESE THREADS.

I LIKE MY BODY WHEN IT IS WITH YOUR
BODY. IT IS SO QUITE A NEW THING.
MUSCLES BETTER AND NERVES MORE.
I LIKE YOUR BODY. I LIKE WHAT IT DOES,
I LIKE ITS HOWS. I LIKE TO FEEL THE SPINE
OF YOUR BODY AND ITS BONES, AND THE TREMBLING
-FIRM-SMOOTH NESS AND WHICH I WILL
AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN
KISS, I LIKE KISSING THIS AND THAT OF YOU,
I LIKE,,SLOWLY STROKING THE, SHOCKING FUZZ
OF YOUR ELECTRIC FUR, AND WHAT-IS-IT COMES
OVER PARTING FLESH….AND EYES BIG LOVE-CRUMBS,
AND POSSIBLY I LIKE THE THRILL
OF UNDER ME YOU QUITE SO NEW

(the poem isn’t quite as wonderful screamed.)

IT IS NOT BY MY HAND THAT I AM ONCE AGAIN GIVEN FLESH. I WAS BROUGHT BACK BY HUMANS WHO WISH TO PAY ME TRIBUTE!!!!!

TRIBUTE?!?!? YOU STEAL MEN’S SOULS AND MAKE THEM YOUR SLAVES!!!!!

PERHAPS THE SAME COULD BE SAID OF ALL RELIGIONS!!!!!!

NO I DIDN’T KNOW THAT TODAY IS THE CAPS LOCK ON DAY!!!!!!!!1

THANKS IT FEELS LIKE READING YOUTUBE COMMENTS!!! !!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!! !!!!!111 1

CAPS LOCK IS A STUPID KEY, LONG OBSOLETE, THAT SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM KEYBOARDS! I HAVEN’T USED IT SINCE WRITING BASIC PROGRAMS AS A KID! DO YOU HEAR ME? GET RID OF THIS WORTHLESS KEY IMMEDIATELY!

JUST WHAT WE NEED DURING ELECTION SEASON, ANOTHER OUTLET FOR BUGNUT INSANITY!!!!!!!!!!!!

And all this crap about UPPER CASE and lower case. Isn’t it about time the middle case got some love? Or at least a tax cut?! All this caseism is polararizing our society!!!!

@JON S: IS THAT BARRY MALZBERG? I THINK I JUST READ THAT STORY FOR THE FIRST TIME YESTERDAY! WHAT A COINCIDENCE!

COLORLESS GREEN IDEAS SLEEP FURIOUSLY!

IS IT POSSIBLE TO USE ALL-CAPS WITHOUT USING THE EXCLAMATION POINT? I DON’T THINK SO!!!!!

ME TOO!!!!!

I DON’T KNOW ABOUT WINDOWS, BUT MAC USERS CAN TURN OFF THE CAPS LOCK KEY!!! OPEN SYSTEM PREFERENCES, CLICK THE “KEYBOARD & MOUSE” ICON, THEN THE “MODIFIER KEYS…” BUTTON IN THE KEYBOARD PANEL. YOU CAN TURN IT OFF OR MAKE IT ANOTHER FUNCTION. OR TRICK SOMEONE BY MAKING THEIR CAPS LOCK KEY INTO THE CTRL KEY AND VICE VERSA!!!!! WHY NOT!?!?!?!?!? IT’S CRAZY!!!!

THIS DAY HAD TO BE INVENTED TO CELEBRATE THE OXYCLEAN/ORANGE GLOW GUY.

DIRECTOR: “DUDE, THE MICROPHONES AREN’T WORKING. WE’RE GOING TO NEED YOU TO YELL OUT THE SCRIPT.”

ORANGE GLOW GUY: “okay.”

I ACTUALLY WONDER IF IN REAL LIFE, HE’S THE TYPE OF GUY YOU HAVE TO LEAN IN REAL CLOSE TO HEAR, OR IF HE’S ALWAYS AT FULL VOLUME, ALL THE TIME.

IN ANOTHER IRONY, THIS IS EXACTLY HOW MY BOSS COMMUNICATES.

WE ALL LAUGH.

ZOMG URRITE, WIZARDRU! ALSO, WHY DOES CAPS LOCK DAY HAVE TO BE ON MY BIRTHDAY?! WTF, MATE? NOW I HAVE TO GO AROUND YELLING AT PEOPLE ALL DAY! ON SECOND THOUGHT, THAT MIGHT MAKE THIS THE BEST AND/OR MOST HILARIOUS BIRTHDAY EVER?

I always wanted to be a voice of reason and solace in a storm-tossed world, and here’s my chance. Plus, HOLY CRAP, I’M GOING AGAINST THE GRAIN!!!!!!!

THERE IS AN OLD MEDIEVAL SAYING, WHEN EVERY DAY IS A FEAST DAY, THERE ARE NO FEAST DAYS. TRANSLATED TO CAPSLOCK DAY, I GUESS THAT MEANS WHEN EVERYTHING IS EXCITING AND EMPHASIZED, NOTHING IS EXCITING AND EMPHASIZED!!!

I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT I THINK THAT MIGHT NOT APPLY ON CAPSLOCK DAY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I
WANNA ROCK AND ROLL ALL NIGHHHHHHT
AND PARTY EVERY DAY!!!!!!!!

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT YOU!
YOU HOLD ME TIGHT!
TELL ME I’M THE ONLY ONE
WANT TO COME OVER TONIGHT, YEAH!

DOESN’T SOUND SO CRAZY WHEN YOUR SINGING ROCK SONGS, DOES IT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

MY GIRL’S TALL WITH HARD LONG EYES
AS SHE STANDS, WITH HER LONG HARD HANDS KEEPING
SILENCE ON HER DRESS, GOOD FOR SLEEPING
IS HER LONG HARD BODY FILLED WITH SURPRISE
LIKE A WHITE SHOCKING WIRE, WHEN SHE SMILES
A HARD LONG SMILE IT SOMETIMES MAKES
GAILY GO CLEAN THROUGH ME TICKLING ACHES
AND THE WEAK NOISE OF HER EYES EASILY FLIES
MY IMPATIENCE TO AN EDGE–MY GIRL’S TALL
AND TAUT, WITH THIN LEGS JUST LIKE A VINE
THAT’S SPENT ALL OF ITS LIFE ON A GARDEN-WALL,
AND IS GOING TO DIE. WHEN WE GRIMLY GO TO BED
WITH THESE LEGS SHE BEGINS TO HEAVE AND TWINE
ABOUT ME, AND TO KISS MY FACE AND HEAD.

— E E CUMMINGS!!!!11!!

I LOVE CAPSLOCK, BUT WHAT I REALLY WANT IS A SHIFT LOCK OR SOMETHING FOR THE NUMBER/SYMBOL KEYS! I MEAN, WHEN I’M WRITING ALL OF MY LAME MATLAB PROGRAMS, I ALREADY HAVE A NUMBER PAD! I DON’T WANT TO SHIFT TO GET TO THE PERCENT SIGN!

I AM ENJOYING THIS HOLIDAY, HOWEVER! TO CELEBRATE, I’M TOTALLY PUTTING ALL OF MY FRIENDS’ KEYBOARDS ON CAPSLOCK! IT’S INCREDIBLY LAME AND TAKES 2.47 SECONDS TO NOTICE AND UNDO, BUT IT MAKES ME LAUGH! I FEEL LIKE T-REX IN DINOSAUR COMICS!

You really should not type all caps unless you are typeing on 14″ Green-bar fan-fold.

You could program a high speed dot-matrix to play music too.

I think I’ve been in this business too long, I remember the 4004 and a big memory chip was 256 bits.

OH NO!!! IN MY TIMEZONE IT’S ALREADY THE DAY AFTER INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK DAY!! WILL MR SCALZI DELETE MY ASS???

P.S. IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT’S GONNA HAPPEN IN THE FUTURE JUST ASK… AND ENCLOSE MONEY!!!!! (YES, MONEY WILL STILL BE ACCEPTED IN THE FUTURE. TOMORROW MORNING ANYWAY.)

Awww man, ALL CAPS? That’s just rude to us UNIX guys, because they only think we cap is acronyms.

Fortunately, I speak COBOL:
IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.
PROGRAM-ID. HELLO-WORLD.
PROCEDURE DIVISION.
MAIN.
DISPLAY ‘ALL CAPS DAY IS OVER! GO AWAY!!!’.
STOP RUN.

SO MY WIFE LOOKS OVER AT ME AND SAYS, “WOULD YOU STOP TYPING SO LOUD,” AND WONDERS WHY I FALL OFF MY CHAIR LAUGHING. SO I SHOW HER THE POST AND SHE GIVES ME “THE LOOK”

COME ON GUYS, YOU KNOW “THE LOOK”

IT’S THE ONE WE GET WHEN OUR SO’S THINK WE’RE BEING A DORK.

I GET THAT A LOT. 8P
