Programmer humour [spiny]

Just found this on msdn:
#!/usr/bin/perl # # # # If this code works, it was written by Keith Brown. # If not, it was written by Don Box. #
Funny guys eh? (cringe)
So, comeon, what are you're favourite programmer funnies?


  1. A surgeon, a civil engineer and a software engineer were chatting at a bar. The discussion came round to whose profession was the oldest. The surgeon said that his was, since in the book of Genesis, God created Eve from one of Adam's ribs, and that surely involved surgery. The civil engineer countered by saying that before God created man, he created the heavens and the Earth from chaos, surely a feat of civil engineering. The software engineer just smiled and said 'Where do you think the chaos came from?'

  2. Q: How many software engineers does it take to change a lightbulb?
    A: None, it's a hardware problem
