Cute uninteded political commentary in my CSS


Working on a site design this afternoon I got a kick out of this CSS statement I had just written; it seems that my designs and programming are affected by my political compass! See if you can get it.

#heading {
  background: #009900 url("heading.png") center left no-repeat;

I guess if I wanted to make it more specific I could change some of the variables around:

#compass {
  background: url("libertarian.png") center left;

This kind of reminds me of Perl Golf and Ruby Poetry. Good times.
