This was a lame joke, but you didn't get it. It's unlikely that Dale Fuller

No serious programmer (or at least, no programmer without a good sense of
humor) would use a tool named Minion, maybe for the same reason that nobody
wants to use a picture of a bug to represent anything other than a debugger

co-developers would ask for my head in a silver plate in such case).
