First, it's not very geeky. At all. It has NO OS related terms (unix, linux etc) and only one programming related term (perl) but that's it. Oh wait, we have "bridge". Wowee!
Second, it doesn't integrate with my existing (original) magnetic poetry kit because the words are large, much larger than the originals and because it has so few words (not a good value, see #3), there's not much to be done with it. Iow, don't do like I did and have the expectation that you can beef up your existing kit by throwing in some geekness. It ain't happening. I'd gauge the font size to be about 12. The original is maybe 6 pt. font so it doesn't blend, kwim?
Third, it's not a good value. Hardly any words as compared to the original magnetic poetry kit. Maybe one third as many. Seriously.
I'm not a complainer but I'm very disappointed with this purchase. It's what you'd expect someone like Scott Adams to do [juxtaposition of geek cartoonist but zero actual web culture knowledge, his site is painful; he calls each blog entry "a blog".] It's enough to make any sane person shiver all over.
I'm left with the impression that this kit was just phoned in, no thought put in to it at all. My mom who is 80 and had never sent an email in her life could have done a better job.
A few current quotes that made it to "the board": "Hal bit the droid three times on the wrong week and got napalmed off of the world", "I'll be back to byte your sexy access", "Frankly, my dear the force is not with you so stick to sniffing glue", and so much more.
Everyone needs a little more fun in their life! Get it! :)

I thought I would at least be able to say "may the force be with you" but the lack of filler words makes that impossible. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Liz
Put them on the fridge the same day I received them. Great word choices along with standards like pronouns, verbs, etc. Love this edition.Published 6 months ago by bcjdhkk
Silliness for all. Added this to other magnet sets to make some truly outrageous sentences. Also great for beginning readers.Published 6 months ago by Laurel Harness
Good but not as creative a group of words(which is the whole point to me). To really have fun you'll need to add more words.Published 7 months ago by A/V Ted
