Ah, the "It's just Humor" excuse. The same one the bullies in school
use. "Why did he get angry, we just put his head in toilet and flushed
just for humour". Ofcourse nobodies head gets flushed in toilet in
Debian, but "humor" which ridicules specific human beings tends to
not be taken as funny by the targets.
I have to confess I have used this form of humor in Debian too. I've
since decided that it's not a good idea, it does not improve
