Make them think they've hacked into one of these:

Download a PDP-11 emulator for Linux

Download a UNIX v5 image (http://simh.trailing-edge.com/software.html)
(circa 1975)

Hook it up to inetd running on port 23 OR make an easy-to-guess username
password combo and have it run the emulator as their shell.

* Make sure to set it up to log everything so you can have a good laugh
afterwards (and share it with us!)

Seriously, I've done this in the past. One very confused cracker.
