I'm not sure what's scarier, the beanie baby epidemic
or the Tux epidemic.
The moment someone stuffs some Furby circuitry into a Tux, with Linux
evangelism burned into its ROM, I'm moving to SOLARIS.

Subject: [ILUG-Social] No such thing as a free Tux
One of my kids got an alleged happy meal from McDonnald$ the other
the toy he got bore some resemblance to our friend Tux. Ok, it was a
penguin but not like the usual stuffed toys.
If you want a free Tux, why not go and make a show of yourself
get the penguin toy next time you are in Macs, get your mother to
some minor plastic surgery, hey presto!
A free Tux / lunch depending on your outlook. It even comes with the
it was Bourne in.
If you cannot get your mother to do the surgery, simply take your
off and you'd never know the difference.
Sorry about this drivel, it *is* Thursday.
