I laughed through most of Elm street (not sure which one), think it was the dogs with human faces that finished me off.

Is this a Godwin Law subset for Raspberry Pi posts?

As a Raspberry Pi discussion grows longer, the probability of a speculation involving Release Dates or Sales Numbers approaches 1.
