Distribution quotes of the week

Ubuntu's six-month release cycle makes it a bit wearying to maintain the appropriate level of excitement. I use it as a reminder to clean my furnace filters.
-- Carla Schroder (by way of Linux.com)

A few years ago, when I received private mail from somebody about sponsorship, my reply would result in either a longer thread where to discuss something or in a short acknowledgement and work move into the review request. Nowadays, private mail mentions the wish to be sponsored, but communication stops at that point because pointing at the PackageMaintainers Wiki entry page apparently is considered too much homework for the people who mail me.
-- Michael Schwendt

And how pray are you going to tip a spherical cow ?

You don't tip a Spherical Cow. You roll it, down the hill, chased by a cheese.

Too bad it wasn't a goat

Roll, roll, roll your goat
Gently down the hill
Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a thrill.

I thought spherical cows were supposed to move on frictionless planes. Have I been misinformed?

I, for one, tip spherical cows with fiat money.

Customary practice with cheese rolling is for the meatbags to chase the cheese, not the other way round.

The cheese is the one being chased, normally.
