As part of our Pixie development stack we use SASS because it is much more manageable than standard css for supporting interesting styles across browsers.

Despite all the bold claims I made in 50% of my blog posts, The Wrens are beating me badly at this blog-off. Saying something of value on the internet is a tough job.

It is called Contrasaurus and you can play it here. Ten points if you can name all the references or explain the plot...
