While I wait for a response, I'm going to spend some time reading fifty shades of grey code.

Well, look stupid. Thanks.

I worked with a few programming jokes, but to be fair, they probably thought the same of me.

I get errors when I try to compile this code ...

typedef struct n{int a:3,
b:29;struct n*c;}t;t*
v;}int i;h(u)t*u;{t*z,*v,*
w;int c,e;z=u->c,v=z->c,q(
char *sbrk();main(){t*e,*p,*o;
1);}}t*f(){return i||(i=1000,

I am using Windows7.

If you asked me to guess your profession I would have to say engineer. I never knew one who didn't write code like that.

Every bug you find is the last one.
Oh my giddy aunt, computer language is more baffling than bloomin French!!

Every bug you find is the last one.

I've been finding my last bug every week for the past 10 years... yep, that's how good I am. I found my last bug ever last week, now my code is flawless. ;)

Hey, I'm an engineer. Are you saying you don't know me RJ? Or are you saying my code is shit?

I suppose I should have said all but one ;-P. Because I don't browse the C/C++ threads I can honestly say I've never seen your code (although I am sure it is exceptional - grovel, grovel). I should add that my experience is only with engineers who are self-taught programmers and all of them graduated before computer engineering was a thing. Oh the horror stories I could tell. I am pretty sure I shared the worst example of coding (FORTRAN) I ever saw in another thread somewhere. IIt was written by an engineer at Westinghouse who wrote code for a living.

Programmers not only byte, the also nibble a bit.

(nipple was wishful thinking, corrected, thanks RJ)

By the time a programmer removes the last bug, the software is obsolete.

The dynamic declination flag was accidentally switched to EIEIO. Check your atomic memory pool for floaters because they're probably causing the kernel to pop. But be careful because the memory manager is volatile and could cause the entire pipeline to dump core.

Remember that a multitasking programmer is one that can read in the bathroom.

"If debugging is the process of removing bugs,
Then programming must be the process of putting them in."
... Edsger Dijkstra

Theory is when you know something, but it doesn't work.
Practice is when something works, but you don't know why it works.
Programmers combine Theory and Practice: Nothing works and they don't know why.

something right, there's a 90% probability that you'll get it wrong.

Not a joke as such but one I use a lot.

"Ahh that' would be a PICNIC error"?

Problem In Chair, Not In Computer.

Or sometimes in real production code I have been know to use silly variables like Underpants particularly with foreach...

foreach (var item in pairOfUnderPants)

I know, it is a sad joke :P

There were computers in Biblical times. Eve had an Apple.

Mom: Go to the store and buy one bottle of milk. IF they have eggs bring back 3.

I come back with 3 bottles of milk.

Mom: Why did you get 3 bottles of milk?

Me: Because they had eggs.
