Jar Jar Binks and accessibility

The reason that the Star Wars character Jar Jar Binks is so reviled is that “binks” are things that are actually links, but styled to look like buttons and so don’t respond as expected for keyboard users. (Buttons are actionable with the space bar, links are not.)

And “jar” is some Java shit.
