AFAIK you can't.  A ping is just a response that the system is alive and is used to measure reponse times.  You can however have a finger response.  You need to have a finger service running on the system.  mIRC and other IRC programs usually have one built in.  You can adjust the displayed message in the options.  You can also find other finger services available at most shareware sites.

Go to the command prompt and type "ping" with no parameters and it will give you all the availabe options that can  be displayed, for example changing the size of the packet sent, or retrieving the route taken.

Play around with the options to get what you want.

eg. ping -a www.jumbo.com -r 9
