On pre-termios systems it probably turned all the terminal modes off.
Including echo, nl->cr translation, and a few others that are somewhat
helpful. However, on my machine "man stty" says:
>> stty [-F DEVICE] [--file=DEVICE] [SETTING]...
>> The underlying system defines which settings are available.
So in any case the joke is not portable :)
