Embed Google Fast Flip

If you use Google News, you probably have seen Fast Flip. Fast Flip basically takes screenshots of news articles from a certain set of new sites, and allows you to browse the news by flipping through images. As a result you get to see news formatted better than in a news aggregator, but still cover news from a variety of sources.

I wondered if there was a way to embed fast flip in my site. There wasn't a gadget I could find, but with a bit of copy-pasting it was not so difficult after all. The code for doing it follows after the embedded fast flip.

Disclaimer: Did not see anything that suggested Google frowns upon using fast-flip this way, but use it at your own risk.
