has anyone made this joke yet 

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Mastodon, is in fact, Fediverse/Mastodon, or as I've recently taken to calling it, Fediverse plus Mastodon.

@bekopharm @zalasur @ashfurrow a few days ago I mentioned how long it will take until someone makes this joke. So you could take this as a yes. 😉

re: has anyone made this joke yet 

@ashfurrow It's very reminiscent of how everyone sees the GNU OS and just calls it Linux.

@ashfurrow In fact, I'd propose we call it Mastodiversifedon, to show how the Fediverse is central to Mastodon. lignux.org/the-say-lignux-camp

@ashfurrow I’ll bet you’re one of those GNU/Linux people too, aren’t you? ;-)

(You are, of course, correct on both accounts. I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be silly. :-)
