Eric S. Raymond, one of the pioneers of the Open Source software movement, received a call from a Microsoft recruiter about setting up an interview. After politely informing the guy that someone was having a joke at his (the recruiter’s) expense, Eric followed up with a hilariously scathing e-mail message. The best part was probably this paragraph near the end:

“On the day I go to work for Microsoft, faint oinking sounds will be heard from far overhead, the moon will not merely turn blue but develop polkadots, and hell will freeze over so solid the brimstone will go superconductive.”
