Jakob Nielsen abuse. (Although you might not think it's funny unless you know who he is.)

Name your baby Cthulu! "Your first name of Cthulu has given you a practical, logical, analytical approach to life and a great deal of patience. [...] You are overly fond of heavy foods such as meat [...]"

Or how about Jesus! "You prefer to choose the easiest way to accomplish your goals [...]"

Sony becomes jack-booted thugs:

"Sony is going to take aggressive steps to stop this. We will develop technology that transcends the individual user. We will firewall Napster at source -- we will block it at your cable company, we will block it at your phone company, we will block it at your [Internet-service provider]. We will firewall it at your PC."

Mike "Cartographer" Gerlica notes:
The Internet has a diameter of about 10,000 pookies.

Bad news: The court finds that DeCSS is illegal. (pdf) DeCSS is a program which allows playback of (any) DVDs on Linux boxes. Of course, this program is open source (freely available to anyone) and defeats DVD encryption. The MPAA flipped out and sued 2600, who posted DeCSS on their website. The judge ruled that 2600 was bad.

The EFF (providing counsul to 2600) has a good post-trial memorandum on the DeCSS case.
