This is probably the oldest trick in Unix: getting a fun greeting every time you open a new terminal session. The typical way to do this to call fortune. If you pipe it to the ASCII cow and other animal characters available in cowsay, it becomes really cool.
One way to do this is to add this to your
RANGE=2 number=$RANDOM let "number %= $RANGE" case $number in 0) cowcommand="cowsay" ;; 1) cowcommand="cowthink" ;; esac $cowcommand -f $(ls /usr/share/cowsay/cows/ | shuf -n1) $(fortune -s)
For Fish shell, add this to the end of your
fortune | cowsay -f (ls /usr/share/cowsay/cows/ | shuf -n1)
