DEC RT11 Easter Egg - Lonely?

An old one but not listed here.

At the > prompt type "show users"
The OS replies "Nobody but you".

An obvious play on the fact that RT11 is
a single user program with RSX11 syntax.

While using RT11 on a PDP 11 computer around 1982 to train technicians for Pratt and Whitney we discovered that by typing HELP John, the message 'There is no help for John' appeared. John didn't think it was very funny. Typing HELP you produced, as you would expect, 'There is no help for you'. The surprise was typing HELP me and the response was 'There is no help for you'. This was before we had ever heard of Easter Eggs.
