What is wanted:

  • short TeX, MetaFont or MetaPost macro/macros (half A4 page or half a screen at most),
  • the code should be generic, potentially understandable by plain–oriented users,
  • results need not be useful or serious, but language–specific, tricky, preferably non–obvious,
  • obscure oddities, weird TeX behaviour, dirty and risky tricks and traps are also welcome,
  • the code should be explainable in a couple of minutes.
