I've been sent this bug report (which I have translated to English)

If you give the program invalid argument it will enter an infinite state
(waiting for IO)
Example run:

$ ponysay --hel
ponysay: warning: unrecognised option --hel
^CTraceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/games/ponysay", line 1787, in <module>
  File "/usr/games/ponysay", line 75, in __init__
    else:                            self.print_pony(args)
  File "/usr/games/ponysay", line 566, in print_pony
    msg = ''.join(sys.stdin.readlines()).rstrip()

Invalid arguments should:
Print and error message (could not understand "-hel" please type "--help" for
And then invoke exit(-1) (or arbitrary fail number).
