Is this close to what you came up with?

1) To make Arthur crazy.

2) Branches used for flow control in new "shadetree" language.

3) Diagonal slices across time to *really* test the code.

4) Extending the idea of 'potluck' into IT.

5) The Old McDonald compiler calls for here a tag, there a tag, 
everywhere a tag tag.

6) Security.  Can't explain further without hair and DNA samples.

7) Lawsuit protection -- if the lawyers can't check it out, they can't 
run a Silhouette scan.

8) Head schmead

9) Put the fun in function!

10) Cowboy Neil designed our CM process
