Alan Moore’s signed computer keyboard (may have mystical powers)

A keyboard signed by Alan Moore is currently listed for auction.

“As you know, Alan Moore is the world reknowned author of Watchmen, V for Vendetta, Swamp Thing and a load of other fantastical gubbins, and here for sale is his old computer keyboard. He definitely didn’t write any of the aforementioned works with this, and by the looks of things, it was mainly used as an ash tray.

I’ve had a go on the keyboard, and in doing so, felt the power of Alan surging through it. It immediately inspired me to write a fifteen chapter novel, comparable to the Russian Masters, which took no less than four and a half hours, without even stopping for a toilet break. Unfortunately, the keyboard was not connected to a computer at the time, and all the work was lost. Therefore I cannot verfiy the functionality of the keyboard, as it hasn’t been rigourously tested. Or even connected to a computer since Alan owned it.” [via]
