fun: sudo insults on Ubuntu

An interesting sudo feature is the ability to insult you when you type a wrong password. It has really funny phrases, see some of them: * I’ve seen penguins that can type better than that.
* Maybe if you used more than just two fingers…

On Ubuntu, this feature comes disabled by default. To enable it, edit /etc/sudoers file and put “insults” word in the end of line “Defaults…”. That line will look like this:

Defaults !lecture,tty_tickets,!fqdn,insults

That’s it! Just run the sudo command and type a wrong password.


tuxi[~]$ sudo tuxy
I have been called worse.
Listen, burrito brains, I don’t have time to listen to this trash.
Take a stress pill and think things over.
sudo: 3 incorrect password attempts

Funny indeed 😀
