Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear... I feel a challenge coming on. This was triggered by my recent blog Yet still the dog doth grunt and snore…
As you may recall, I was visualizing a Discworld-esque scene that takes place in the wee hours of the morning (see also my Got Discworld? blog). In particular, I was envisaging a furtive figure making his way down an alleyway and tapping on a door. Then a flap in the door opens and the following exchange takes place between the doorkeeper and the furtive figure:
Furtive Figure: "A gibbous moon hangs pendulously in the sky..."
Doorkeeper: "Monk fish croon their soothing songs of snooze..."
Furtive Figure: "Yet still the dog doth grunt and snore..."
Well, the first comment to this blog was from Brian, who spake as follows:
Furtive Figure: "Yet still the P&R doth route evermore…"
As soon as I saw this I thought to myself "Now, there's a challenge if ever I saw one!" So, now I'm wondering who can come up with the best lines. These could be related to programmable devices and/or microcontrollers and/or their design tools and methodologies. For example, I will start the ball rolling with the following humble offering:
Doorkeeper: "The error log portends a day of woe..."
But we don’t need to restrain ourselves only to technology. I must admit that I was rather taken by my own "...croon their soothing songs of snooze..." line, so let's leave the door flung wide open and admit anything that "goes with the flow" as it were.
So... are you up to the challenge?
