Yeah, it is a bit "obscure". But, did you get that the "Eye" is composed of the characters that make up the phrase "Saint Patrick's Day"?
There's some history that goes along with this. Decades ago, when I was employed at a Robot Vision development and manufacturing firm called View Engineering, in Simi Valley, CA, I had access to some really fun equipment, with crazy fast image processing hardware that could be easily programmed in a FORTH-like language called VAMPIC.
So, rather than do the work I was supposed to be doing, I programmed the thing to convert images, from one of the video cameras, into ASCII pictures, like the "Eye" in my latest Derby entry.
No, the shirt eye was not generated by my program (I found a really nice online version that allows you to enter a custom set of characters, and comes with a set of controls for processing the image for better character selection), but the point is, it could have been ;)
BTW, they eventually fired me, but, i mean, come on...the temptation!
