Halloween 3; Geeks Without Souls

We have known it for decades.

Geeks are evil, soul-less beings who live in and through their computers.

They find every human need is satisfied online.

Except for toast. Which has to be flown in. After Dark.

Their dogs were all bad, as some of us may remember.

Now the geeks of the Linux World have invoked the Eater Of Souls.


Found over at wirelizard, who commented;

“Shortly after making the release announcement, Cthulhubuntu sponsor Murk Tentacleworth screamed,

“Ia! Ia! Cthulhu Fthagn! Ph’nglui mglw’nfah Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn!” and ran off into the night, gibbering.”

Meanwhile, the Eater of Souls Sits Plotting Dreams in Drowned R’lyeh.

May your fears rise up to meet you.
May your ghosts be clawing at your back.
May the gibbous moon shine coldly upon your face;
And may your shadows eerily entwine

Until we meet again, in some strange, non-Euclidian Dimensions


Have a scary Halloween.

  1. LOL! OMG, I remember Bad Dog and the Flying Toasters! I kinda MISS them!


  2. Linux’ xscreensavers still has the flying toasters.


  3. Toast is vital. No system can run without it. Hail Toast.


  4. Minke, Yep, unfortunately most normal people have been seduced by the pictorial side of the force. Darth Webshots rules!

    Cybe, figgers – geeks=linux=toast 🙂

    Truce, I have often wondered how Apple’s sales would have been affected had they been named “Toast”
