this might be an odd request, but please consider it nevertheless.

There is a very popular web comic involving the make command:

It would not be useful, but entertaining, if the make command  would behave
like this. So I’m proposing the following behaviour:

If make is run with the arguments "me a sandwich", and there is no target
called "me", the error message is replaced by "What? Make it yourself.", if
SUDO_COMMAND is unset, or "Okay." if that variable is set.

I think this does not distrub any operations, as it only modifies the error
message. If there is a target called "me", make should behave usual.

If you would be willing to include such a "feature", I’ll provide a patch.
