I made no effort to find Cygwinized profanity. I stumbled across a program
named "fortune" one day, which I was told printed out corny sayings etc, and
installed it. Then I forgot about it. Then, some time later, I was told
that what I thought was a program written with "good clean fun" in mind was
in fact loaded with enough potty mouth to make even *me* blush.
Good thing I didn't install it at work, and that I don't work at a Megacorp
that has whole departments devoted to rooting through peoples' files looking
for reasons to fire them.
