	Quoting Woody Allen, in this world of political correctness, we
can only make jokes about white men, of 40 years, cristians,
heterosexual, with an good employ and conservativein politics, otherwise
we will hurt a minory.

	So belive me, it's really difficult (and non-sense in my
_personal_ opinion) to be 100% correct with everyone, and that it doesn't
hurt any of the people around the world.


PS: What about Woody Allen's film quotes for the next release cycle?
(just joking, because we try to be funny in order to make our non-paid,
time expensive and sometimes ingrat work on Free Software bit easier)

PS2: Don't people from Sun, IBM... do jokes in their internal work?
Maybe is the same, but our internal work (hacking) is more public (IRC,
Mailing lists, developer releases...)
