A RAID member disk walks into a bar.

Bartender asks, “What’s wrong?”

“Yeah, you look a bit off.”

I've heard this joke for who-knows-how-many years now. No clue who wrote it, originally. It's FOSS published it in 2017. SwiftOnSecurity tweeted it in 2015 (and mentioned having heard it years prior). If you know of the original author, shoot me a line.
