    Catchy phrases

    Anyone made up or know some catchy phrases like:

    Have you ever started your car just so you can shut it down?

    (referring to users of a certain OS that have to click start to shut down)

    Some of these are stolen from bash.org, others are taken from other sources (including this very forum). If you made up one of these quotes, sorry for the lack of crediting and thanks for the laughter

    "Grandma Solaris is just handing out the cookies."

    "How would blasting cookies with fudge and marshmellows prove the existance of elves?"

    "I want to start a band without drums or bass guitars. We'll call ourselves The Beatless."

    "The cook book said to clean the turkey. The oven had a clean button".

    "If there is one thing i can do, its multitask"

    "America's Army: Defend freedom. Online. With some 13 year olds."

    "You need only two tools. WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape."

    You can't write code or design software that will secure "stupid." [..] If those folks were using an abacus, they'd probably get their head stuck in it.

    Windows is unprotected sex. Linux is using a condom, the pill, a vasectomy, and the Berlin wall.

    Statistically speaking, there are two popes per square kilometer in Vatican City...

    And finally, a lovely one:

    What you have isn't "Better than Windows", "Better than Mac", or even "Better than other Linux distros". It's Ubuntu, and it can stand on its own.
    I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.

    People always copy what I say.


    "That's because I'm doing PROPER subjects"
    "Yo mama is yo mama"
    "Burn in hell"
    "Fall into the abyss"
    Others: "Where are you gong for food?" Me: "Africa"
    "No, I don't want to buy your ****ing baby!"
    "Yo face is yo mama."
    "I'm down with the kids, yo, or something"

    When you're swimming in s***, keep your chin up!
