I can’t see the picture, but is it Jack’s creation?

He achieved notoriety in Germany for his eccentric appearance, notably his wig, which he fashioned himself from electric tape. If anyone asked him about his “hair”, he would answer “It’s Jack’s creation!”.

No. for the pictorially challenged, it shows an image of a barber standing behind a seated guardsman (Think Buckingham Palace, the ones with the big furry black hats.)  The barber has shaved of the back of the head/hat to reveal that the hat isn’t hollow and really tall, but rather the skull is actually extremely tall and covered with that black furry-ish hair. (It’s actually been ‘shopped’ fairly well.) wink  cheese

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Thanks Dave.

Strange that the Wiki link doesn’t work, but here is the text.

It’s due to the brackets in the link.  The forum breaks the link when brackets are involved by ignoring them completely.  There’s only one way round it that I know of - use tinyurl or equivalent.  Or, I suppose if you click on the link you can then go and edit the brackets back in on the address bar…

Another forum I visit has the same problem, but they have an alternate solution of substituting ( for ( and ) for ).  I’ve just had a quick play with that here, and it doesn’t seem to make any difference.

Alternately, one can cheat using the URL-encoding %-codes for the parentheses. replace with %28 and %29 , respectively.

*grumble* looks like it’s stripping out the code when I post, replacing them with their ‘proper’ characters.. hang on… you wanna be that way, I’ll use your encoding against you, see how you like it…

Think that should do it. Not clicky, but you get the idea.

Yeah, that’s what I tried, and it made no difference.  Heh, and I see it actually changed where I used the % 28 % 29 to brackets in my post above, too.

Yep. That’s because ultimately your post is still being squeezed through a very long URL, with those control characters being passed through the same filter as any URL. Kinda annoying, but it prevents your browser from being fed URLs that kill it or let someone read your hard drive.
