Some of these are quite amusing and IMHO most of them justified in the
original context.

..but more importantly none of them was a personal insult.
Which can not be said about some of your comments.

If you want my take on it: pipe it into a text-to-speech synth and make
a RAP song out of it: "Parental Advisory Explicit Lyrics." Bonus points
if you manage to work Bob M's Jammin' into it and master it with jamin

Come to think of it we might even start a petition for the Unplugged
version of it featuring Fons at the next Linux Sound Night :)
