‘Don’t Buy a Parrot Figuring That It Will Be a Fun Surprise for Me.’

From Richard Stallman’s 9000-ish-word rider for speaking engagements:

I do not eat breakfast. Please do not ask me any questions about what I will do breakfast. Please just do not bring it up.

It’s a lot to read, but worth it. If you have to skim, don’t miss the sections on hospitality and music. (Via Jacqui Cheng.)
