This Easter Egg hidden in the terminal blew my mind

Linux users (specifically those who use Debian or its derivatives) would be aware of this particularly bovine Easter Egg that is hidden in the terminal.


So, if you attempt to apt-get moo, it shows you a cow and asks you "Have you mooed today?"

apt-get as you would know, is one of the widely used commands used to install software. A lesser known wrapper tool for apt-get is aptitude, which essentially does the same thing as what apt-get does. Technicalities aside, the big question is - what happens when you do aptitude moo?

When I did try it out, it yielded what is possibly one of the greatest Easter Eggs that I've ever come across. Here, see for yourself.
