    Who is this Santa person you are referring to? I think your smiley has had one to many.

    Santa's real... Why would they make so many movies about someone who's not real? Who puts the GI Joes under my tree every year?

    I think it's my neighbor. Or possibly the mailman.

    Brian: I hear you man. Couldn't have said it better myself.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, (pulls down picture of Chewbacca) this is Chewbacca. Chewbacca is a Wookie from the planet Kishic, but Chewbacca lives on the planet Endor. Now think about it. That does not make sense.

    Why would a Wookie, an eight-foot-tall Wookie, want to live on Endor with a bunch of two-foot-tall Ewoks? That does not make sense. But more important, you have to ask yourself what does this have to do with Linux being real?

    It does not make sense. Look at me. I'm a software engineer defending a major operating system, and I'm talkin' about Chewbacca. Does that make sense? Ladies and Gentlemen I am not making any sense. None of this makes sense. And so you have to remember when you're in that jury room deliberating and conjugating the Emancipation Proclamation, does it make sense? No. Ladies and Gentlemen of this supposed jury, it does not make sense. If Chewbacca lives on Endor you must acquit. The defense rests.

    This is the place
    Sit down, you're safe now
    You've been stuck in a lift
    We've been trying to reach you, Thom

    This is the place
    It won't hurt, it will not hurt

    A smell of recognition
    A face you barely loved
    Empty all your pockets
    'Cause it's time to go home

    This is the place
    Remembering all the things you always see

    You've been stuck in a lift
    In the belly of a whale
    At the bottom of the ocean

    A smell of recognition
    A face you barely loved
    Empty all your pockets
    'Cause it's time to go home

    Today is the first day of the rest of your days
    So lighten up, squirt

    Deckard... did you do that all from memory or get that off a sound byte from South Park? Either way, it's hilarious as always...

    No sound byte required. I keep the Chewbacca Defense tucked away in memory alongside the testimony of Colonel Nathan Jessup (Jack Nickolson) in A Few Good Men, and some interesting one-liners from Office Space. God knows I have to think about something other than ANSI C library functions.
