Okay, help me out 'cause I'm feeling dense. I get the cat / dog joke, but I what's the cat / more joke, and what do either have to do with Linux?

Oh, well in that case thank you and congratulations to Mr. Torvalds for inventing grep, cat, cd, etc. – they've been very helpful to me!

He didn't invent them. Those are Unix commands. Linus made a Linux kernel, but the utilities were already there. Things like Bash are older than Linux.
