thankyoumario.lisp

This week I made a new wigflip toy called Thank You Mario. It lets you fake up that castle screen from Super Mario Brothers where you are told "THANK YOU MARIO! BUT OUR PRINCESS IS IN ANOTHER CASTLE!" except with your own text. Like some of the other toys, the output is an animated GIF you can save and share around. Something like this:

The core of this toy is around 300 lines of Common Lisp, supported by the Vecto, zpb-ttf, and Skippy libraries.

I figured I'd share the code, just for the heck of it.
