From linux-source-2.6.22/drivers/char/lp.c:

if (last != LP_PERRORP) {
			last = LP_PERRORP;
			printk(KERN_INFO "lp%d on fire\n", minor);

For the uninitiated, this code handles an error while printing a document. This particular error message would read:

lp0 on fire

Ha! That's awesome! You know what else is cool. Open up the terminal on Ubuntu (I think all Debian based distro's do this as well) and type

yes I rule the world!

Once you've figured it out, you can replace anything after the word yes and it will repeat it infinitely. Be careful though, because it will use 100% of your processor to do so.
