Why did I make this plugin?

News of the Spielberg / Peter Jackson Tintin movie sent a torrent of happy boyhood memories through my head. A long spelunking of the internet culminated in a line by line reading of Captain Haddocks’ famous insults. So I finally scratched my WordPress plug-in itch and created the little WordPress widget you see on your blog.

I want more Tintin!

Please comment on my plugin page, I’ll see what I can do!
