It is a little known fact, buried deep within the ISO standard for US 104-key PC keyboards, that a keyboard must be able to hold within its main keypad no less than 47.3 kilograms of incidental cat hair.

Over the past half hour, using a vacuum cleaner and a scalpel on my Memorex MX2750, I have reassured myself that my keyboard is standards-compliant.

While probing with the scalpel and vigorously suctioning with the vacuum, over the course of thirty minutes I'll never see again, I have produced this found poem. Or perhaps it's a very short novel. Or a grocery list in Tocharian:

i'/-=;;/;\\--[ n n mmn Azz456498987756799],,K
;;;;.'']

MMMMMMMMV N NNNNNNNNNNNN

It's at least as good as anything else I've written in the last year.
