Banish the "Howdy" greeting from the WordPress admin area with this simple to use plugin!

== Description ==
The Replace Howdy Plugin is designed to replace the word "Howdy" in the WordPress admin area/admin bar with something else. By default it randomly pulls from a list of several replacement words and phrases such as "Hello", "Welcome", and "Get to the choppa". The plugin also comes with a menu where you can limit it to professional sounding greetings, set a static word or phrase, or add your own list (which can be by itself or added into the default list for even more variety)!

= List of replacement words/phrases =
Professional greetings, also part of the default list

* Chow,
* Hello,
* Aloha,
* Bonjour,
* Welcome,
* Greetings,
* Konnichiwa,

Default list

* Get to the choppa,
* Live long and prosper,
* We require a shrubbery,
* May the force be with you,
* Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain,
* Wassap,
* Don't mind me,
* Looking good today,
* Eat all your vegetables,
* I can see you right now,
* I can hear you breathing,
* Have you showered recently,
* There is a ninja behind you,
* Do you know what time it is,
* Wipe that grin off your face,
* Don't make me come down there,
* You just gained +5 WordPress skills,
* I know you are sitting at a computer,
* Did you remember to brush your teeth,
* Did you put on clean underwear this morning,
* Don't read this directly or you will get a lazy eye,
