Works better than the crappy windows commands people think belong here.

This place is becoming a collection of junk. Moderation is needed ASAP.

This is not a humor/spam/general purpose place. If you don't have a useful/original/time saving command to share, please don't just pollute this database.

Are you guys serious? (pun intended). It's a classic sudo joke from xkcd. Did you guys start using the Internet last week?

I liked the joke, especially the comment from sudopeople

> Are you guys serious? (pun intended). I've got no problems with a funny command, but this isn't even one. It's a made-up one copied from xkcd. Try to create commands like 'Gets a random Futurama quote from /.' and you will get those +Votes.

This doesn't belong here. Anyone who's anyone that uses *nix is already an avid reader of xkcd. The joke was funny, until everyone started posting it everywhere they can. Question is, @thisduck, did *you* start using the Internet last week.

@thisduck, that's exactly the point, It's a JOKE! This place is not the right place to post jokes!

Any thoughts on this command? Does it work on your machine? Can you do the same thing with only 14 characters?
