You could try these unix commands if you’re really bored. It probably works on Ubuntu too.

[code lang=“bash”]% “How poorly would you rate the Unix (so-called) user interface?

Unmatched “.

% rm congressional-ethics

rm: congressional-ethics nonexistent

% ar m God

ar: God does not exist

% [Where is Jimmy Hoffa?

Missing ].

% ^How did the sex change^ operation go?

Modifier failed.

% If I had a ( for every $ Congress spent, what would I have?

Too many (’s.

%make love

Make: Don’t know how to make love. Stop.

% sleep with me

bad character

% got a light?

No match.

% man: why did you get a divorce?

man:: Too many arguments.

% ^What is saccharine?

Bad substitute.

% (-

(-: Command not found.

% sh

$ PATH=pretending! /usr/ucb/which sense

no sense in pretending

$ drink <bottle; opener

bottle: cannot open

opener: not found

$ mkdir matter; cat >matter

matter: cannot create[/code]

(via GNU.org)

My favorite is:

[code lang=“bash”]% man: why did you get a divorce?

man:: Too many arguments.[/code]
