	A coworker pointed out a borderline offensive fortune that appeared in my
	email signature which is partially generated from `fortune -s` output.

		$ grep -rC2 'PLATONIC FRIENDSHIP' /usr/share/games/fortune
		/usr/share/games/fortune/fortunes-                 Shell"
		/usr/share/games/fortune/fortunes:PLATONIC FRIENDSHIP:
		/usr/share/games/fortune/fortunes-      What develops when two people get
		/usr/share/games/fortune/fortunes-      tired of making love to each other.
	I agree that it's probably not appropriate in a professional setting.



	Move to offensive category.
