I'm trying to work through the "Designing .NET Class Libraries" series, and came across this from the notes accompanying the Rich Type System episode:

"Slide 56: Did anyone happen to use a very early, pre-beta release of the .NET Framework and actually see the PrinterOnFireException? I would be interested to hear if anyone actually spotted this..."

It reminded me of something I once saw this on an internal functional requirements document: "System back door for blackmail ... in case we all get ripped off"

Looks like someone is in the habit of borrowing jokes from ancient versions of UNIX.
