Security Limerick

As I mentioned here, "it is traditional, at the faculty-hosted 'Gala Dinner' of the Institute for Applied Network Security Forum, for the faculty to be the entertainment. It is also traditional for faculty-member Marcus Ranum to come up with the assignment." This year it was almost limericks. Instead it was a version olf "Mad Libes." I did one, but using a limerick.

To "get" the limerick's references, you need to read this history of the Firewall Toolkit.

The limerick:
There once was a manager, Fred,
who to his best programmer pled,
"Make me a SEAL,"
and so with great zeal,
"It won't be a PIG," Marcus said.
