smiley - offtopic I clicked the merch link and have a question. Why is the discount code "FIFTEENYEARS"? The site is 21 years old and it surely hasn't been 15 years since we were dumped by Auntie Beeb. Curious.
Maybe it's a sitewide code for Zazzle. Is Zazzle 15 years old?

Disregard above question. I just confirmed it's Zazzle that's 15 years old.
