Dickens said, 'Read RacinePost every day!'

All of you without a sense of humor, leave the room. (We know who you are from your comments on the previous post!)

OK, now that we've gotten rid of the sourpusses -- here's a totally useless, but fun website.

First, click on this quote from Charles Dickens and then come back here when you're done:

If there were no bad people, there would be no good lawyers.

Now click this Dickens quote:

Repression is the only lasting philosophy.

And finally, this one:

If you could see my legs when I take my boots off, you'd form some idea of what unrequited affection is.

Actually, if you looked at the underlying code for each of those quotes/links, you'd see that the quote is the URL. Mostly.


Yep, those first two quotes, from The Old Curiosity Shop and Tale of Two Cities now, belong to us, assigned (randomly, we'll assume) by a cool new website -- sort of the antonym of www.tinyurl.com. And the third quote, from Dombey and Son -- damned if we want to contemplate it too closely, but we swear it was assigned randomly! -- belongs now and forever to the Journal Times. Guys, you can thank us later.

Want your own Dickens-quote URL? Curious to see what Dickens quote the computer will assign to your favorite website? Just go here and have some literary fun: http://dickensurl.com
