Tired of collecting Beanie Babies and Pokemon cards?
Christopher Robin called last night complaining about the lack of
collectibles pertaining to the famous "Pooh" show. Eeyore, of course, said,
"I dooon't knooow aboouuut this".... But what does Eeyore know anyway?
This is no ordinary pig! Stand back folks, he's large and live and ready to
rumble. This pig is knocking back CPU loads of 99 whilst having tea and
crumpets with Pooh Bear. This bad boy eats Lizards for breakfast and spits
out kernel patches. Approach with caution, he could be dangerous!
PIGLET: Your once in a lifetime chance to have this rare collection!
This is a limited time offer, when we run out of bits, they'll be gone
forever. Don't miss out folks, the Internet lines are lighting up, they're
going like hotcakes, and we can't guarantee availability on this item for very

ONE MILLION percent gain on the original price tag of $0.

PIGLET is available now for Intel, Sparc and Alpha architectures. PIGLET is
ONLY available through the Internet, and ONLY for a limited time!. This is a
beta release of Red Hat Linux, and we don't encourage using this for mission
critical applications. However, like most Red Hat beta collectibles, it is
very usable for:
1) Testing those new holographic storage devices
2) Installing on all of the machines in your favorite lab
3) Seeing what that "Linux thing" is really all about
4) Preparing your thesis on "Works in progress"
We have created piglet-list for discussion of this beta release. To
subscribe, merely send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the
code word "subscribe" in the subject line, respond to the confirmation message
request, and enjoy hours upon hours of entertaining and useful messages from
hackers trying to make this thing fall down go *BOOM*...
(With a special thanks to home shopping channels everywhere!)

When he got there he didn't know where he was.
When he got back he didn't know where he had been.
And he did it all on someone else's money.
