Re: [News] Another Win for Linux in the Restaurant

Homer <usenet@xxxxxxxxxx> espoused:

Hmm, watching Star Wars VI yesterday with No2 son, I was minded to go
back to the various star wars jokes again...  a re-run follows:

Luke:  These chips taste terrible!
Obi-wan:  Use the sauce, Luke!

Luke:  This Mercedes is rubbish, it's too slow...
Obi-wan:  Use the Porsche, Luke!

Luke:  The car's broken down and I'm late for Jedi training
Obi-wan:  Use the horse, Luke!

Luke:  Damn, I can't get out of this room!
Obi-wan:  Use the doors, Luke!

Luke:  I just can't get comfortable on this moorside...
Obi-wan:  Use the gorse, Luke!

Luke:  The London stock market has crashed!
Obi-wan:  Use the borse, Luke!

Luke:  I can't get through on this radio, there's too much
Obi-wan:  Use the morse, Luke!

Luke:  These cows just won't move out of the way, Obi-wan...
Obi-wan:  Use the tawse, Luke!

Luke:  This golf game is impossible, Yoda...
Yoda:  The course you use, Luke!

Luke:  Han, I've used both my hands, I need to hold this rope, too...
Han:  Use your jaws, Luke!

Luke:  Leia, the emperor has deposed the high council...
Leia:  Use the laws, Luke!

Luke:  I can't get Odin to understand me!
Obi-wan:  Use the Norse, Luke!

Luke:  How do I know if this animal is angry, Yoda?
Yoda:  Use the roars, it will, Luke!

Luke:  Leia, these trees are blocking the way to the planetary shield
Leia:  Use the saws, Luke!

Luke:  Which missile, Han?
Han: Use the vorst[1], Luke!

Luke:  These foreign people are annoying and I need to make a lot of
money for me and my friends, now that I'm President
Obi-wan:  Use the wars, Luke!

Note 1:  Vorst is middle english for first... sorry, best I could do!

... sorry folks :-)

Me too... incidentally, chips provide much-needed carbohydrates, fat and
Vit C, and consumed in reasonable quantity, are a perfectly fine food.

A lot of people don't fry them twice, which is an error to my mind,
equally, it's not uncommon to fry them at too low a temperature, which
leaves them soggy, fatty, and generally not too pleasant.

You need the right variety of spud, though...
