    I voted for Cowboy Neal, but the Neal is actually my second choice. I really want a water buffalo. (If you have to ask why, then you obviously know very little about water buffaloes. They are more resistant to infection than cattle, as well as giving milk that is substantially higher in milkfat and nutritional value.) If you know where I can get one, please contact me.

    (This is where you get to say "WTF??")

    e-mail neshura

      WTF??

      :-)

      Nuance

      Baldrick, you wouldn't see a subtle plan if it painted itself purple and danced naked on top of a harpsichord, singing "Subtle plans are here again!"

      Plus, water buffalo milk makes by far the best fresh mozzarella...yummy!
        Believe it or not you are not the first person who I have heard speak of the quality of water buffalo mozzerella.

    I would obviously pick CowboyNeal, because he hardly ever comes up on eBay, so he'd be worth more with proper care and feeding. Plus he can get nasty with two 1200s and sysadmin slashdot, no easy feat.

    Hey! where's my none of the above? what I really want is an aibo

    I think aibo are seriously cool :-) (anybody know the correct pluralisation of aibo?)

    Nuance

    Baldrick, you wouldn't see a subtle plan if it painted itself purple and danced naked on top of a harpsichord, singing "Subtle plans are here again!"

      Aibi? Aibos? Aiboes? Aibus? Aibans? Aibuns?

      Who knows?

        I vote for Aibee!

        #!/home/bbq/bin/perl
        # Trust no1!
      The plural of Aibo? How about: @Aibo? :-)
      Aibii from the Greek... Ah forget it...

      Your Humble Servant,

      Not sure about the plural, but what's the collective term? You know, a gaggle of geese, a flock of sheep. I think it's a boxful of Aibo. We have two, for RoboCup, and they came in an aluminum briefcasish box. The development environment uses Perl somewhat.
        Collective terms are known as terms of venery. Perhaps it'd be a crate of Aibo. Though, they are supposed to be dogs, so they probably should be a herd.

    I'm missing the other vote too. The pet I'd like is something along the lines of a steak.

    Kudra - I don't hate pets, I'm just allergic to anything with fur or feathers.

      Well you know what they say:

      If we aren't supposed to eat animals, how come they're made of meat? ;)
        How about we just eat you, then? Doesn't that sound nice and pleasant?

    Hey, - Why no Oyster option? (Mother of Perl) - Hmmm that's really crap didn't even make myself smile. I had a Python once, but didn't have a crush on it.
      Ow, ow, ow. I have a headach now on one side of my head...

    I'd pick the Koala, because the way it just sit there and stares reminds me of programming. And hey! They don't jump in your hair, or try to kill you, or spit on you or, anything else for that matter!

    What, pray tell, is a "Cowboy Neal?"
      well, since nobody else has answered this, I will. He works for slashdot , and usually shows up as an option on their voting things.

      Actually if you have monks pictures turned on you can occasionally see him at the top of the page, wearing a silly hat.

      Nuance

        this is soooooooo stupid which makes it fun :)
      I'm really glad someone asked that question - I didn't dare!

    Not only is Cowboy Neal good for BBQing, but makes a fine pet as well.
      I beg your pardon?
