the origin of the blink tag

Saturday morning rolled around and I headed into the office only to find what else but, blinking text.    It was on the screen blinking in all its glory, and in the browser.    How could this be, you might ask?   It turns out that one of the engineers liked my idea so much that he left the bar sometime past midnight, returned to the office and implemented the blink tag overnight.   He was still there in the morning and quite proud of it.

The <blink> tag. Turns out that yes, there was alcohol involved.

There’s a joke here somewhere about coding responsibly or something.
