Why did the chicken cross the road?

njchick njchick writes  |  more than 7 years ago

Linus Torvalds: Because it sucked so much where it was. And, quite frankly, it sucks where it is now, just not as much.

Richard Stallman: Because chickens should be free to share, to modify and to distribute across the road.

Eric Raymond: It was a bold act of civil disobedience to protest government's control of the roads.

Alan Cox: To avoid being imprisoned for DMCA violations.

Larry Wall: It crossed first and rationalized afterwards.

Hans Reiser: Because roads and chickens should be mutually interchangeable.
