You got me searching for an ORLY owl in ansi, :p
but the only owl I found had all hellfire in the background (and in
its eyes). Curiously enough it came from a document announcing
someone would be helping out with "Lord Nemesis's" BBS because Lord
Nemesis was busy helping out with Plan 9. Small world.

Sadly I guess a proper bold will break all ansi art, but I for one
would rather read than look at pictures, at least on a text terminal,
lol. Come to think of it if I used st (which I might, rxvt is looking
a bit broken and the gtk junk too bloated on my netbook,) I might
actually keep a patched version around (as stb perhaps) just for the
occasional look at ansi art, or perhaps a misbehaving program.
