Some Levity For the Programmers Out There

September 21, 2016

Now that most projects are rolling along post-summer holidays, people seem slammed with work. Programmers are typing their fingers off and I just thought sharing a bit of fun would help lighten the mood a bit.

Normally, I try to keep things a bit more serious but I think right about now most of us could use a bit of a chuckle so I would like to pass along a list of jokes that I think are totally hysterical!

First, suppose that Chuck Norris is not just martial arts expert but also an expert programmer. Here’s one tidbit you might appreciate about him: “Chuck Norris can write infinite recursion functions…and have them return.”

If you don’t find that as hysterical as I do then don’t bother reading the rest at http://codesqueeze.com/the-ultimate-top-25-chuck-norris-the-programmer-jokes/ .  😉

    The Chuck Norris one leaves me cold, I’m afraid, but if you want some humo(u)r I’ll dig this one out of the archives in case anybody hasn’t seen it before – it’s only three months or so until Xmas after all…

    Here’s one related to Brian’s:

    A manager, a programmer, and an engineer were riding in a car down an incline, one day, when the brakes fail. By pulling the car into the grassy side of the road and carefully using the parking brake, they were able to safely stop the car. They all got out.

    The manager said, “Let’s put together a committee and study the problem.”

    The engineer said, “No, if you’ve got a paper clip, I’ll just fix it, right now.”

    The programmer, studies the car some more and finally says, “Hey, let’s push the car back up the hill, get back into it, and see if it does the same thing, again.”
