It doesn't work at all. We've tried it on all our cisco 2500 routers and it gives an error. I've tried it in config mode as well. It's not a real egg my friend.

On very old Cisco routers, the "me" of "show me the money" seems to be interpreted as an abbreviation for "memory", and the rest ("the money") is ignored. Thus, you get the output of "show memory". Tested on a Cisco CGS running "GS Software (GS3-K), Version 9.1(11), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)". I don't know if this is the "egg" the original poster saw. On all routers running IOS 11.2 I tested, it generates a syntax error ("% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.").

Err, not working. I think this router has IOS 12.x so they probably remove it :( *BAD CISCO* disco>"show me the money" % Unknown command or computer name, or unable to find computer address disco>

It is my understanding that this egg works only in either 10.2 or 11.3, I'm not sure of which.. The odds of finding a 10.2 series software pack on a router in service would make it hard to validate its existence.

It is not in 10.0(6) either (with correct punctuation this time).
