Little Lamb who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee?
William Blake (1757-1827)
"Songs of innocence" (1789) ``The Lamb''
Sir Hans (email@example.com) and Jason Newquist
(firstname.lastname@example.org). Jason did the ``techie'' bits: sections 3,
4, and 5. Sir Hans admits to having written the rest, though all the
good bits in section 8 have been written by intelligent, nice, and
omniscient people, most of whom are mentioned in the next answer.
Also, the old alt.quotation FAQ was a little bit more than just an
inspiration for this one.
