There used to be a function in the shutdown utility called
die_you_gravy_sucking_pig_dog() which was actually the very last
function call made by shutdown(8) on a normal system shutdown.
I believe humourless corporate types were instrumental in having that
function renamed to something bland a few years back.
However, now it's back, as of r238968:
This stuff comes and goes. Personally, I think the developers
exhibiting a sense of humour and a spark of personality is the sort of
thing that leads me to trust a lot more in a code base than their
appearing as a horde of bland corporate drones.
