The modern-day convention of indentation indicating a new paragraph actually derives from printers leaving enough space in the text to allow rubricators to hand-draw pilcrows. When the speed of printing technology eventually outpaced the rate at which human hands could add drawn notations, those spaces were left blank and became symbolic in and of themselves. Nifty!
Today's rather unassuming note also kicks off Butt Week: I apparently drew five different butt-related doodles during the last two years (because butts are inherently funny) and have decided to group them together for your viewing (dis)pleasure. Non-butt posts will resume on Sunday.
