Keew, Lord of Mouseovers
Keew 1:1: In the beginning there were Graphics, and the Graphics were without interactive features and void. Keew 1:2: And Keew looked upon the Graphics and thought they were lame. Keew 1:3: So Keew said, 'Let there be Mice!' And there were Mice. Keew 1:4: And the Mice moved upon the Graphics, but nothing happened. Keew 1:5: And Keew looked upon the Mice and thought this was still pretty lame. Keew 1:6: So Keew said, 'Let there be Mouseovers!'  And there were Mouseovers. Keew 1:7: And when Mice moved upon the Graphics, text appeared. Keew 1:8: And this was cool. Keew 1:9: Then were browsers written to display Mouseovers. Keew 1:10: So that men, women, and small farm animals could read the Word of Keew. Keew 1:11: And they did prosper, for the Mouseovers did provide Content. Keew 1:12: Even unto those who didn't read the regular text. Oh no!  It's the Mouseover of Good and Evil!  Original Sin!  Bummer! Keew 1:12: Even unto those who didn't read the regular text. Keew 1:13: But Keew said unto His People - or Small Farm Animals, as the case may be, Keew 1:13: But Keew said unto His People - or Small Farm Animals, as the case may be, Keew 1:14: 'Read not the Mouseover of Good and Evil, Keew 1:15: for then you will be like unto the gods, and icky in my sight!' Keew 1:16: It is somewhere on this very page, so be careful! Keew 1:17: And don't say I didn't warn you!' Congratulations!  You just found the Mouseover of Life!  You win! Keew 1:17: And don't say I didn't warn you!' Keew 1:18: But Mouseovers can be tedious to install. Keew 1:18: But Mouseovers can be tedious to install. Keew 1:19: Particularly in long images like this one, Keew 1:20: So that's pretty much it for the First Book of Keew.

Keew (pronounced kyew) is venerated as a diety by the clans of New Grunswich and parts of Seldonia, Murchis, and Western Deld. He is believed to be responsible for all forms of interactive graphics, including links, mouseovers, and flash games. This has been a source of considerable frustration for modern missionaries, whose gods may have been hot stuff back in the days of sticks, snakes, burning bushes, and similar user interfaces, but who consistently fail to work any significant miracles with modern data processing equipment.
