Alice in Wonderland, the Flash versionOne of the pleasures of returning from vacation is catching up on ten days’ worth of Boing Boing. Among the offerings: an Alice in Wonderland pop-up book as a flash animation, the ten most untranslateable foreign and English words, an 8th grade test from a 1895 Kansas schoolhouse (including the question “What is meant by the following: Alphabet, phonetic, orthography, etymology, syllabication?”), surreal road signs, and nerdy typefaces.
