    How bout the all time classic quote?

    "640k is enough for anyone"

    or, any number of quotes from places like bash.org

    "BRB, getting savaged by a awild bear that just came in through the window oh god the pain"

    Well, any real quote from bash.org would likely have poorer spelling and punctuation but you get the idea.

    I can't recall the precise details of this, but the video is on you tube and it is HILLARIOUS. The guy who put ctrl-alt-del in first is on a talk show with Gates. Basically he says it was put in as debugging. So, heres a great one perhaps:

    "I [whatever his name is] invented Ctrl-alt-del, but I guess its really Bill Gates that made it famous."

    Look it up some time, I can't because of the darn internet filter right now.
    If the world doesn't stop annoying me I will name my kids ";DROP DATABASE;" and get revenge.

    I'm not sure exactly where I saw this but it's Linus Torvalds commenting on SCO saying Linux is stealing from them:
