How about "Cygwin - where it DOES eventually hurt to ask if you start a
conversation saying 'I know nothing about X but couldn't you just...'
and then keep asking that question in various simple ways even when it

I am curious, though.  Apparently it was the "dessert topping" comment
that was considered rude?  Everyone understands the reference, right?
