You can do this with a shell-script.
You can use for example:
echo -n "so, this is my uptime: "
echo -n "and here is a fortune: "

Put it in a file, let's say
make the file executable (chmod +x or use konqueror -> properties)

You can run it with  './'
The result will be:
so, this is my uptime:  17:32:01 up 5 days, 18:10,  2 users,  load average: 
0.38, 0.26, 0.35
and here is a fortune: Obviously I was either onto something, or on something.

Play with the file, change stuff and have fun :)
