Message Board Rules


Years ago I explained [here] that when logging in to a *nix machine, if you have it set, a program called "fortune" runs after logging in to give you a [humorous] message each time.

Today is perhaps the best I have seen. It took me a few seconds to understand :)

There was a young man from LeDoux,
Whose limericks stopped at line two.

There was a young man from Verdunne.

[Actually, there are three limericks in this series, the third one is about some guy named Nero. If anyone has a copy of it, please mail it to "fortune". Ed.]
