I've been using git for years, but it was one of those things that you do a quick google search for and pick up the things you need. And once you have git clone, add, commit, push you're pretty much set. It wasn't until recently I even bothered to look at the man page for git, where I'm greeted by:

Code:
GIT(1)                            Git Manual                            GIT(1)

NAME
       git - the stupid content tracker

Then for unrelated reasons, I was going through looking for some information on git workflows and found this in the gitcore-tutorial

Code:
       The core Git is often called "plumbing", with the prettier user
       interfaces on top of it called "porcelain". You may not want to use the
       plumbing directly very often, but it can be good to know what the
       plumbing does when the porcelain isn't flushing.

I found it pretty funny and wanted to share that git greets us by presenting itself as the stupid content tracker and then proceeds to refer to itself as a toilet.

Have you guys seen other fun stuff hidden in reference docs and manuals?

vim got dark at the end

Code:
What is the meaning of life, the universe and everything?  *42*
Douglas Adams, the only person who knew what this question really was about is
now dead, unfortunately.  So now you might wonder what the meaning of death
is...
