Pasted … something like this, hmmm (see note below)

<div style="font-size: 11px; line-height: 13px; color: #330000; margin-top: 20px; font-family: Courier, mono; ">         _        ('v')        (   )       "Birdie" by Susie Oviatt       ~/'~'~~</div>

(HTML doesn’t do consecutive white spaces (feature, not bug) so to show ASCII art you need to force them. The necessary non-breaking-space-codes aren’t showing inside the posterous code tags.  I’ll try attaching a txt file)
