    As posted by Linus 15 odd minutes ago.

    In a widely anticipated move, Linux "headcase" Torvalds today announced
    the immediate availability of the most advanced Linux kernel to date,
    version 2.6.20.

    Before downloading the actual new kernel, most avid kernel hackers have
    been involved in a 2-hour pre-kernel-compilation count-down, with some
    even spending the preceding week doing typing exercises and reciting PI
    to a thousand decimal places.

    The half-time entertainment is provided by randomly inserted trivial
    syntax errors that nerds are expected to fix at home before completing
    the compile, but most people actually seem to mostly enjoy watching the
    compile warnings, sponsored by Anheuser-Busch, scroll past.

    As ICD head analyst Walter Dickweed put it: "Releasing a new kernel on
    Superbowl Sunday means that the important 'pasty white nerd'
    constituency finally has something to do while the rest of the country
    sits comatose in front of their 65" plasma screens".

    Walter was immediately attacked for his racist and insensitive remarks
    by Geeks without Borders representative Marilyn vos Savant, who pointed
    out that not all of their members are either pasty nor white.  "Some of
    them even shower!" she added, claiming that the constant stereotyping
    hurts nerds' standing in society.

    Geeks outside the US were just confused about the whole issue, and were
    heard wondering what the big hoopla was all about. Some of the more
    culturally aware of them were heard snickering about balls that weren't
    even round.
