Fun signatures from Usenet

On this page, I will collect fun signatures I see in Usenet news.

You can help grow this collection. If you feel some signature is so funny it should be on this page, you can email me the Message-Id of an article where the signature is used. Send your email to: Note: Don't send me just the signature. I require all entries to come from genuine Usenet articles that I can verify myself.

So, here's the collection:
