I remember back in the late 90's, the man page for syslogd had a section about dealing with network attacks on syslogd servers; several approaches described, the last one reading something like

 *Sucker rod: 3/4 threaded steel rod, used in oil drilling.

It looks like someone edited it out of the man pages since then.

It's still in sysklogd, and the manpage is here: https://linux.die.net/man/8/syslogd
