I brought my stein to work today, well at YAPC::Europe all of us was given a stein sponsored by O'Reilly. But anyway and old joke from YAPC:.Europe came to my mind.
On the last day when the auction was taking place a few steins where sold which had been signed by people Larry Wall, Damian Conway and Dan Sugalski - and I told one of my friends that I would only bid for a stein if Lincoln had signed one...
Well I think it is a funny joke, but to find it funny you should probably have been there.
