Last night, Spanky and I were reading some fanfic and movie parodies on the internet.
While reading this parody of the movie 300, I accidentally highlighted the text and noticed what I called “invisible internet ink.” Spanky laughed and said something like, “That’s Whytex.”
Me: How do you do that Spank?
Spanky: It’s Whytex.
Me: It’s cool, Spank, it’s invisible. I want you to show me how to do that.
Spanky: It’s just WHITE text! This is where she rolls her condescending teenage eyes.
Me: Oh. This is where i get evil ideas.
Spanky: Haven’t you ever been to an internet forum… and looked to see the hidden messages?
Me: Yeah, but I never saw any hidden messages. Never thought to look for it, what kind of people leave hidden messages?
Spanky: That’s where all the snarky comments are. I don’t think my Whytex is going to show up in the rss feeds.
She claims she is going to have a lot of fun telling all her friends at school about this. I claim I am going to blog about it. She tells me I will look like a fool.
