There are at least two recordings, with slight variations of the phrase: first at YUICOnference:
Now, there are Haskellites, who will say... you don't dare try to learn monads without mastering Haskell first, but I say, my friends, if you have the chicherones, you can
and then at Google:
There are some who say... you don't dare go that way otherwise [i.e. talk about monads out of the context of a particularly typed language, such as Haskell], but I say, my friends, if you have huevos, you can.
I really loved what he did there, and it saddens me that as the time goes on this kind of humor becomes less and less possible. Was it funny? To me, certainly. Was it inappropriate? I'm not sure I know what that means. Was it offensive? I really don't want to care, and I want to live in a world where most people don't find it offensive and don't care if someone else does (because someone always does; that's what people do).
