pictures of unknown people?

So looking around in the vox with Astro, I found a folder called etc in the main directory that has, among other things, pictures of men and one of a baby I don't know.

First, does any one else have this? If so, does anyone know wtf?

Second, anyone know how to get rid of it?

Hahahaha! That is so awesome!!! I just finished reading 'Ready Player One' not too long ago, so I am surprised I didn't find this earlier - with Easter Egg on the brain! Especially since I was just poking around in there looking for the folder for my sd card yesterday!

Nice parrot, James!
