|Monty Python quote in Linux 2.6.4|

Finally, someone has added a Monty Python quote to the Linux kernel. It was Rusty Russell, a kernel hacker who lives here in Canberra near me. I've met him several times at the local Canberra Linux Users Group meetings.
His change comment was this:
[PATCH] kthread primitive From: Rusty Russell These two patches provide the framework for stopping kernel threads to allow hotplug CPU. This one just adds kthread.c and kthread.h, next one uses it. Most importantly, adds a Monty Python quote to the kernel.
And the quote he added was from the holy grail movie, yes, that one, with two dead cats and one clubbed fish.
The quote he added was from the swamp castle :)
/* "to look upon me as her own dad -- in a very real, and legally binding sense." - Michael Palin */
Michael Palin was a true genius at that sort of humor. Possibly his best work was not with Monty Python, but in Ripping Yarns, especially the first episode Tomkinson's Schooldays which is unbelievably funny :)
