  2. yes
  3. sl
  4. cowsay
  5. cmatrix
  6. cal
  7. rig 
  8. pi
here another pretty useless command:
~$ figlet apt-get update
             _                   _                     _       _

DESCRIPTION
       FIGlet  prints  its input using large characters (called ``FIGcharacters'')made up of ordinary screen
       characters (called ``sub-characters'').  FIGlet output is generally reminiscent of the sort of ``sig‐
       natures''  many  people like to put at the end of e-mail and UseNet messages.  It is also reminiscent
       of the output of some banner programs, although it is oriented normally, not sideways.

       FIGlet can print in a variety of fonts, both left-to-right and right-to-left, with adjacent  FIGchar‐
       acters  kerned  and ``smushed'' together in various ways.  FIGlet fonts are stored in separate files,
       which can be identified by the suffix ``.flf''.  In systems with UTF-8 support FIGlet may  also  sup‐
       port  TOIlet  ``.tlf''  fonts.  Most FIGlet font files will be stored in FIGlet's default font direc‐
       tory.

       FIGlet can also use ``control files'', which tell it to map certain input characters to certain other
       characters,  similar to the Unix tr command.  Control files can be identified by the suffix ``.flc''.
       Most FIGlet control files will be stored in FIGlet's default font directory.

       You can store FIGlet fonts and control files in compressed form.  See COMPRESSED FONTS.
