I'm trying to convert some friends to LaTeX and have come up against a (to me) unexpected objection: there are too few packages that support "fun" (really), to which I responded:
I know there are examples of clever and creative (and a bit silly) output coaxed out of otherwise quite sertious packages like TikZ, but I also wonder: Are there other packages, like Hanno Rein's coffee package, that demonstrate LaTeX's lighter side?
The following presentation will show a progress by having a duck walk from left side of the screen to the right side, saying annoying things every once a while. You can of course replace the duck picture by any other animal (I am thinking about a man carrying a sack on his back. On specific slides, the ones I plan to spend more time on, I want to have him drop the sack to the ground and rest).
