Unicode Humor

For the true geeks among us, there is now Unicode humor. Check out this xkcd cartoon. Let your mouse hover over the cartoon to see the title, which is part of the joke. (If you're using a browser that doesn't show all of long titles, such as Firefox prior to version 3.0, I've put the full title below the fold.)

U+FDD0 is actually Unicode for the eye of the basilisk, though for safety reasons no font actually renders it.
