The Raspberry Pi Powered Joke Machine @raspbery_pi #piday #raspberrypi

Why did the Raspberry Pi click the link? To check out this detailed tutorial by mazzmn on how to make a joke machine that will leave you in stitches (ba-dum-ch), via instructables:

I recently received a new Raspberry Pi and wanted to create an Intro to Raspberry Pi project. My Pi included a 16×2 LCD display and a Wi-Pi Card so I created the Wireless Raspberry Pi Powered Joke Machine. Just press the push-buttons and the machine will look up a one-liner and scroll through it. (Admission of guilt here…I originally thought it would be neat to create a desk-toy that could display inspiring and educational famous quotes…the Joke Machine can do this, but when I found I could just as easily generate one-liners, I decided that would be more fun :-) )

This Step by Step Instructable walks you through the process of setting up a new Raspberry Pi, adding the the PiFace Control and Display LCD, the WiPi wireless and the provided python script TheQuoteMachine.py which looks up jokes and quotes on a free service called iheartquotes.com. it’ll also describe how to access your Pi without need for a keyboard or Display using VNC remote access.
