Dick Allen Mouse Cursor, Ya Heard

Earlier today, Bradley Woodrum treated America not only to his prose stylings, but also to that peculiar joy that only a snowman-shaped mouse cursor can cultivate in a man’s (or, ideally, a woman’s) bosom.

Which, that gave the present author an idea — an idea to which the reader can become privy by meeting me on the other side of the jump.

Pretty excellent, right?

For those of you who’ve effed up somehow, what you’re missing is a Dick Allen-shaped mouse cursor. You’re also missing a happiness that not even Odysseus knew when he spent, like, eight or 11 years trapped on Calypso’s sex island.

For any blogger interested in recreating this magic in your own electronic pages, here’s the code:

    This is indeed your best work to date, sir. And likely will be your best in the forever-long history of ever.

    The snowman came up immediately for me; however, this has been 5 minutes and I have yet to receive Mr. Allen in mouse cursor form.

    Simply stunning. This should be the default for all Notgraphs posts. Or at least like every other one.

    You know this means that you’re going to need to make a Joe West mouse cursor, right?

      A Joe West cursor would simply throw you out of the post, and back to plain old NotGraphs.

        I like this idea – but I like even better the idea of pics of Joe West in every Win Probability graph that eject you from the page, perferably to another page that sells high-end plumbing supplies (hit the showers!), parking lot spaces, or Joe West’s country album.
