I was lecturing to my students yesterday and was asked 'what does GNU
stand for?'. My response was the standard line -- "Gnu Not Unix."
My English Majors (students) said, 'You cannot include the name of the
definition in the definition'.
I responded, "Programmers can...ever hear of recursion?"

My question... was I being a smart S or a revolutionary? OR!! Am I wrong
