Yeah, well, fuqueue!

Let me first note that I have the greatest respect for the gigantic volumes of people who work on the linux kernel, and communicate on a daily basis using a technical vocabulary in what is *at least* their second language.

Hell, Linus’ command of idiomatic english is actuall pretty goddamn scary, and has been as far back as I can remember.

None of which makes this less funny.
