HTML Head Tag Earrings for Geeky Girls

So last week a thought popped into my head. I'm not even sure why but I recalled that months ago I'd seen a cute pair of earrings for geeky girls on Kaboodle or Delight, one of those cute and quirky shopping websites. At the time the vendor was sold out so I bookmarked and forgot all about them.... Until two weeks ago. I went online and found them on Etsy and ordered a pair...

LOL then I forgot I'd ordered them because I'm always crazy busy. So when I went to my PO Box yesterday and found the package I was like "Hey! My earrings are here!"

I couldn't wait to open them but I did because I wanted to take pictures for all of you of the actual unboxing ceremony :)

Here they are! Sterling silver HTML head tag earrings!

This is totally geeky humor so if you're not a web developer you may not think it's all that funny. For those of you who don't know HTML here's a little laymen's tutorial for you if you're interested:

Everything you read online is created with letters, numbers and symbols in a language called HTML.

Some of the information used to build a web page is placed between the start and end "head" tags.

One part of the HTML code looks like the earrings.

1. The opening tag is the word "head" between two brackets like these < >
2. There is more code between the start (opening) and end (closing) tags
3. At the end you'll see the end head tag with the brackets < > and the forward slash in front of the word head like this "/head"

So the earrings are HILARIOUS because you put the start tag earring in your right ear and the end tag earring in your left ear and in between the head tags is.... YOUR HEAD! LMAO

The web page on Nicholas and Felice's web page says:
"Make sure you don't walk around without a properly formatted Head. While we cannot ensure that Google will properly index the contents of your brain, these earrings could help. Be W3C verified. Now xhtml compliant! Always close your tags!"
My girlfriend Katherine reminded me not to put them on facing a mirror or I might put them in the wrong ears. How embarrassing would that be? Web developers and programmers alike would mock me. I'd be an absolute joke. I'd be labeled as a geek wannabe who failed at creating a properly formatted head tag. Good thing I have friends like Katherine to watch my back, or my head so to speak :D

If you want to order a pair of HTML Head Tag earrings you can find them here at Nicholas and Felice on Etsy.com. They also have a super cute Body Tag necklace for you geeky girls without holes in your ears :)

  2. Hi Ms. Wedding Crasher,

    I'm glad you thought the earrings were cute. They're geeky, fairly inexpensive for sterling silver and really lightweight! Two more pluses: They shipped quickly and I love patronizing artisans/small businesses :)
