Even More Madcap Manpages - Linux and Unix Laughs

[ Thanks to Mike Golvach for this link. ]

"The clip in today's post is from the New Man Pages page, which you can check out for links to even more humour and an unexpurgated version of this page. As I've almost grown sick of explaining, I had to change a few words to keep this blog in Google's good graces (or, more importantly, to keep from getting an adult warning page slapped on top of a collection of Unix and Linux scripts and tips). I'm still not sure why they're so hard-line on this topic (i.e. you're either "bad" or you're "good"). It doesn't seem like it would take a quantum leap forward in implementation, thinking or coding to only tag certain pages with an "adult" flag while leaving the rest of the site accessible to the general public. I'm sure there are folks out there who find almost everything I write offensive to some degree, but... well, enough with the frustration. As Lenny Bruce used to say, "These are the jokes, folks!" This is good-time Sunday. Yay :)"
