Irukandji Jellyfish

IE is Being Mean to Me

A song about Internet Explorer. I don't actually have to develop for IE, but whenever a customer finds a bug before our testing team I'm the first to hear about it.An interesting thing I've observed from these various bug reports is that nearly every display bug happens in only one specific browser; can you guess which one?
