Somehow, via Isaac Truett’s repost of a Robert Konigsberg post that I just stumbled upon today, I thought it was worth my time to take Rob’s creepy one-line Mac OS X shell script to the next little level. See, when I ran the
say -v ? command in that script, I found the output…amusing. But, since it’s a pain to parse strings into multiple fields in a shell loop, I dropped down to Python to do the dirty deed.
I call it
creepy.py. Run it with the lights on, folks.
