forced humor

So it turns out that my friend(for the sake of anonymity, let’s call him friend) has his status message set to “rm -fr leisure”, implying he is very busy. Here’s my latest chat with him:

arnab: fyi
friend: ?
arnab: it’s actually “rm -rf”
arnab: and not -fr
arnab: r = recursive , f = force
friend: really?
arnab: this way the force is recursive
friend: i thought that order of options is well.. optional
arnab: so filles are deleted much more forcefully
arnab: :D
friend: dude, u are having me on
arnab: sorry, couldnt resist
