    As far as I know, there isn't really any one authoritative place to get a BSD fortune cookie collection from. Each OS that ships it tends to take care of their own cookies. Therefore, the source for the cookies that Apolyton shows is probably Red Hat, or whoever.

    Of course, what they *should* be showing is stuff from http://www.warehouse23.com/basement/ .

    It seems kinda like an Abyss, although it is so deep and wide and cavernous, no telling where exactly the questions originate from

    Worst Response To A Crisis, 1985:
