Ryan Boren, WordPress Lead Developer and Bug Whisperer, decided to create a poem on the importance of eliminating trailing whitespace in his latest commit to the WordPress codebase.
The Pinking Shears stir from their slumber, awakened by what may seem, to those
innocent in the ways of The Shears, a triviality, a nothing-of-consequence. But there are consequences indeed for recklessly trailing your whitespace. Naturally, they a dire!
One, two! One, two! And through and through
The Pinking Shears went snicker-snack!
They plucked your tail and with your space
They went sniksnuking back.
Let me tell you, that can be uncomfortable, so always pre-sniksnuk your trailing whites. May The Shears be with you.
Well done, sir. Well done.
