Normally I hate all this xmas crap but I do like geek humor.
And I'm not clear on how lpr == "I'm telling you", unless
printing==telling. Anybody want to enlighten me?

better !pout !cry
better watchout
lpr why
santa claus < north pole > town

cat /etc/passwd >list
ncheck list
ncheck list
cat list | grep naughty >nogiftlist
cat list | grep nice >giftlist
santa claus <north pole > town

who | grep sleeping
who | grep awake
who | egrep 'bad|good'
for (goodness sake) {
        be good

[Good point about "lpr why".  Without a DecTalk/Votrax, I'd go for "cat why"
 or "more why" but not "you = seek(fd, why, 0)" -- that's WAY too obscure...
