If you liked my post about fun terminal commands, you’ll also probably enjoy this one.
If you ever noticed that
apt --help ends with:

I like pong, so I ran
emacs, then Esc followed by x, then
pong. I also tried
tetris. My favorite was

I am the psychotherapist. Please, describe your problems. Each time you are finished talking, type RET twice. -- I like pie. RET RET Why do you say you like pie ret ret? -- Why not? What do you think? -- Pie tastes good. Is it because of your plans that you say pie tastes good? -- No, are you even paying attention? Maybe your life has something to do with this. -- No, really?
