Laugh along with GNU

This is a web page designed to provide some laughs to the working hackers. It contains software, documentation, music, poems, etc. submitted by GNU users and collected by GNU contributors over the years.

Nowadays there are many places on the internet where people can publish jokes, so before submitting a joke to us, please consider publishing it somewhere else. Jokes submitted by GNU contributors will have a priority. Please read the Guidelines for details on our submission policy.

Many of the graphics in the GNU Art Gallery also have humorous twists.

Humor Submission Guidelines

This is our policy to include something in the fun section:

  1. It should be funny.
  2. It has no copyright problems.
  3. It is not libelous.
  4. It won't offend most ordinary hackers more than is reasonable in humor.
  5. Although the humor does not have to be strictly connected to the computers world, we strongly prefer to reserve these pages for jokes related to free software, GNU, the UNIX environment, and similar fields.


Much of the material on this page (and linked to from it) was obtained from the FSF's email archives of the GNU Project.
