Vim random string unix joke comic browserling editor text editor vim vi

We run a weekly nerd comic at This cartoon illustrates a joke about vim text editor. If you've never used it, it's nearly impossible to quit it as the exit command requires you to press escape and then type ":wq". Designers don't know this so they bang the keyboard trying to exit and generate a random string as a result.

How do you generate a random string? ... Put a web designer in front of VIM and tell him to save and exit.
