yeah, I didn't know this:

"The last sixteen bytes of every HyperCard 2.x 
stack are the Pascal string "Nu är det slut Š" 
(Now it is over Š in Swedish) though this is 
never seen by users. This was probably a 
reference to the 1970s Swedish children's TV show 
Fem myror är fler än fyra elefanter ("Five ants 
are more than four elephants") where each episode 
ended with a pink animated cartoon elephant 
saying these words."
