Funny to us

Are there any observations about life the universe and everything which are particularly funny to you are a Linux user which would fall dead flat to anyone else?

I’ll start by saying every time I type “gnome extensions” into my duck duck the top two answers are for sites selling garden gnomes. I should make a shortcut to the page I want, but its too funny to just search not to.

The fact that vi improved is vim, sc improved is scim but nobody wants to improve scrot for some reason …
