Yes, but it's blind, only has three legs and no hair. And it screams when you touch it.

That sounds night "mare" ish! :lol:

Sorry. I'll see myself out.

I read recently that people who find puns amusing are often afflicted with some sort of brain damage. Not that I'm implying anything...

That might explain Finnegans Wake.

I don't think anything explains that jumble of letters.

And so have we come full circle? Is Finnegan's Wake the literary equivalent of bloatware?

Bloatware may be bloat but generally such software is meant to work.

Finnigan's Wake by and large, is unreadable. It also requires a PhD in Irish or English Literature, to deem this to be 'officially' the case.

I'm not sure the same can be said of bloatware.
