    Ok, so not everyone knows about this.. open a terminal and type:
    Code:
    aptitude moo
    Then, add a -v for verbosity:
    Code:
    aptitude -v moo
    Then, keep adding a v..
    Code:
    aptitude -vv moo

    And, you'll evenutally get to the easter egg.
    Code:
    rob@station-222:~$ aptitude moo
    There are no Easter Eggs in this program.
    rob@station-222:~$ aptitude -v moo
    There really are no Easter Eggs in this program.
    rob@station-222:~$ aptitude -vv moo
    Didn't I already tell you that there are no Easter Eggs in this program?
    rob@station-222:~$ aptitude -vvv moo
    Stop it!
    rob@station-222:~$ aptitude -vvvv moo
    Okay, okay, if I give you an Easter Egg, will you go away?
    rob@station-222:~$ aptitude -vvvvv moo
    All right, you win.

                          -------/      \
                          /              \
                        /                |
      -----------------/                  --------\
      ----------------------------------------------
    rob@station-222:~$ aptitude -vvvvvv moo
    What is it?  It's an elephant being eaten by a snake, of course.

    Haha, very nice find there.

    I find it very interesting and cool that they would take their time to put in cool little Easter eggs in there.
