            Bug ID: 204412
           Summary: fortune limericks should have '-o' suffix
           Product: Base System
           Version: 10.2-STABLE
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: misc
          Assignee: freebsd-bugs at FreeBSD.org

The limericks files associated with the fortune program do not have the '-o'
suffix despite being much more offensive that the fortunes that are currently
flagged as offensive.

This isn't a problem if you call `fortune` with no arguments, as it only uses
the primary file in that case, but if you call `fortune all` without the `-o`
or `-a` switch it will display the limericks which are quite crude and
offensive.  There are for example at least 57 occurrences of the word 'cunt' in
`limerick` and 3 more in `gerrold.limerick`.  There are 88/1 occurrences of the
work 'fuck' respectively.

When you add the words pussy, dick, prick, screw, ass, whang, sodomy, cock, and
semen then there are at least 172/14 additional occurrences respectively.

By comparison, the offensive fortunes in 'murphy-o' include things as innocuous
as "Never sleep with anyone crazier than yourself".
