LIMA (EP): Former dictator Billy Goat, who in his late age
has become an advocate for the use of free software (heh heh not really - I
had my fingers crossed all the time), has stated that he plans to
make a large donation to the Free Software Foundation,
headquartered in Boston Massachusetts, USA. Asked why he would support
software freedom when he stands accused of abusing the human rights of
thousands of his former users and indeed of ordering death squads to
eliminate many of their hard disks, Billy said, "They were god damned dirty
communists so now they are dead. I believe in freedom." Barkley Kuhn,
representing the Foundation, has stated that his organization has no
quarrel with donors. "They don't determine our policies," said Kuhn. Asked
if the fact that a hard disk abuser who took away the freedoms and
lives of so many might weigh on the his conscience, Kuhn chuckled and
said simply, "No one bit. He asked us to liberate Clippy
and make it free. That is just physically impossible.
Therefore we knew then the monopoly money on offer
couldn't be genuine.
After the initial shock, we enquired further and
indeed payment were to have been made in the
form of monopoly money to obtain cds containing
windosh ex-pee".
