This Tomf3ery Is Making Me Uncomfortable
I’m a grumpy old man. I get it. I’m also perpetually late to the meme party. Fine.
I remember reading the General Protection Fault comic strip* in 2001, and it took me longer than I’d care to admit to realize that the speech bubbles of the aliens / robots / whatever** were written in leetspeak and actually readable. As someone who spent a lot of time on IRC servers in the mid-90’s, I’m a little surprised that that was my first real encounter, but whatever.
