Its funny how the initial response to this was to "change the image if
you don't like it."  Unfortunately, the 5 y/o who updated this image
failed to leave a suitable image to change it to....only the Gnome
splash image remains, and doesn't really match Ubuntu's theme.

Either use the Gnome splash or, go to
<> and update your splash.  Be sure to make a
backup, so this isn't replaced if the splashes are updated.

Please, forgive me for having an adult sense of humor, and leaving the
childish antics to my children.
