I was greeted today upon logging in to dustpuppy with this message:

It’s very nice of
ddate(1) to remind me of the day to celebrate one of the ancient world’s most polarizing figures: The Elder Malaclypse.
The Elder Malaclypse, known by his codename of Mal-1, was a man of ancient Greece who grew tired of the Winds of Bullshit blowing through Athens. So he put down the tools of his trade (it’s not known what trade that may be), and took up a sign that read “DUMB!” Certain people claim that the sign read, “DOOM!” but this is impossible since Mal-1 was registered as a non-prophet with the Greeks. Wearing a candle on his head and rags on his back, he wandered the streets of ancient Greece spreading his message of protest against bureaucratic idiocy.
