Some additional koans from the ALU, or Association of Lisp Users
A student, in hopes of understanding the Lambda-nature, came to Greenblatt. As they spoke a Multics system hacker walked by. "Is it true", asked the student, "that PL-1 has many of the same data types as Lisp". Almost before the student had finshed his question, Greenblatt shouted, "FOO!", and hit the student with a stick.

A cocky novice once said to Stallman: "I can guess why the editor is called Emacs, but why is the justifier called Bolio?". Stallman replied forcefully, "Names are but names, `Emac & Bolio's` is the name of a confectionary shop in Boston-town. Neither of these men had anything to do with the software."
His question answered, yet unanswered, the novice turned to go, but Stallman called to him, "Neither Emac or Bolio had anything to do with the ice cream shop, either."
