"man jive | jive" is quite hilarious, and I almost lost my job for piping 
all man pages through it; the boss had a "drinkful night" and was sure 
that his eyes were playing tricks on him, until he figured out that I was 
the perp.

The man page for UUCP was quite interesting, for example; I actually had 
UUCP running on my home Z-80 box (there were overlays to hell and back).

Next thing you know, "valgirl" will be deleted from Usenet...
