You need to be a Linux user to "get it."

From wikipedia - "Sudo is a program for Unix-like operating systems such as BSD, Mac OS X, and GNU/Linux that allows users to run programs with the security privileges of another user (normally the system's superuser) in a secure manner."

So you can "force" another user's account to do something for you.

Must be... I've been using sudo for years on *BSD, Solaris, AIX, IRIX, MacOS, HP-UX and even occasionally on Linux (among others) - and I just don't find that picture funny...

Sudo itself is quite funny though, how some serious Linux advocates/zealots scream about how it's this great, FREE, bit of software installed on their systems. Yes it is free, at least now every line of code in it has been replaced in order to cleanse it of the GPL so it can now be distributed freely under the BSD license. And still the Linux distributions persist in attaching GPL-licensed patches to it... The irony in that is fantastic! :D
