Collection of questionably humorous git sayings. git-jokes was started as a project for the #git IRC channel on freenode by EugeneKay, wherein a new joke was placed in the topic every day. Being funny on a continuous basis quickly becomes impossible, so jokes started to get reused. This repo contains a list of (most of) these funnies, in an easy-to-digest form. There is also a git plugin, so you can now type `git joke` and receive a random joke! To use this, add git-joke somewhere on your $PATH. For example, you could `wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/EugeneKay/git-jokes/lulz/git-joke` somewhere like /usr/local/bin. All jokes are Copyright by Eugene E. Kashpureff Jr, except the ones that aren't. If you are responsible for a joke, feel free to submit a Pull Request with a whitespace edit on the line containing your joke, so that credit will appear in `git blame` output. All jokes are dual-licensed under the Do What The Fuck You Want To Public License(WTFPL), any version and the GNU General Public License(GPL), version 3 or higher. This means you are free to use these jokes anywhere, with anybody, for any purpose. New jokes should be submitted as a Pull Request, adding to the end of the list. If you're feeling lazy, you can email your submissions instead.
