[PATCH] Improve adherance to the GNU Kind Communication Guidelines

As documented in,
GNU projects should aim to communicate in ways that are not unwelcoming.
Multiple people have indicated that they found this joke unwelcoming,
and in addition it is an unrelated and off-topic political issue: as the
Guidelines say, "Please don't raise unrelated political issues in GNU
Project discussions, because they are off-topic".
