Half-Life: Opposing Force Easter Egg - Poem

Open the half-life\gearbox\pak0.pak file. Go into the gfx\env\ folder. There is a texture, named @hackup.tga or hackup.tga which says:

"HACK HACK HACK
ALL DAY LONG.

HACK HACK HACK
WHILE I SING
THIS SONG."

Not a big thing...

It was the song "The severe beating of a high school janitor."

There is a reason why this poem appears here. A 'hack' in programming/game design terms can mean a way of getting something to work in a less than elegant way. In Half-Life, a level designer is limited to one kind of sky per map (this is just an engine limitation). But the level designer for the ending sequence in OpFor wanted 2 skies, one of the desert and one of Xen (you see both on the same map). The solution was a 'hack', what you see is the same sky, but one side is desert, one side is xen. Because the players movement is limited, this does not matter as you can't turn around and notice this (unless you cheat).

This poem is an adjusted version of an Adam Sandler poem. All I remember was it was about a janitor and the word "hack" was originally "mop"
