    Default The Fav. Programming Quotes Thread

    Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far the universe is winning.

    Not a quote, just a joke :)

    A computer program walks into a bar; the bartender shouts: "Hey! Get out! Your kind ain't welcome in here!"
    The program looks a bit startled and asks "what do you mean by my kind"?
    "You know," the bartender says, "PIRATE software."
    "But I'm not pirate software!" protests the program.
    "Yeah? Well then, what's that thing you've got covering your eye?" asks the bartender.
    "That's just my latest patch!" says the program.
    "Well, okay then, what about that peg leg thing you've got going on?"
    "Obviously I'm a crippled version," sighs the program.
    "You can't fool me," says the bartender, "what about that bird sitting on your shoulder?"
    "SQUAAAWK! Powers of eight!" shrieks the bird.
    "Oh don't worry about that," says the program, "that's just my parrotty bit ."
