There was a boy who wanted to become a great writer.
When asked what he meant by great he would reply...
"I want to write something that will be read all over the world,
that will affect people' s emotions,
that will make people cry and transform happyness into anguish"
his dream has become true... now he writes window's error messages...

That reminds me of a situation I encountered one time. I was a programmer at a Univac 9030 shop. The operator there could execute a program by keying "run <pgmname>" at the console. Since CPUs were relatively slow in those (1970s) days, the operator would sometimes key "run faster" as a joke. Of course the system would return "Program FASTER not found". I wrote a program entitled FASTER and put it on the loadlib. It simply displayed, "I'm running as fast as I can, dummy."
