I've never really associated PMS with that much laughter before. . .  ;)

I admit that I haven't heard this one before. But I like it.  :P I'm going to use it... as soon as I can find somebody who would get the joke.  ;)

Ok, here you go...
from "If programming languages were cars"...
Python is a great beginner's car; you can drive it without a license. Unless you want to drive really fast or on really treacherous terrain, you may never need another car.

This one always incites groans to any group of software engineers I tell it to ( and rightly so )


Did you know why real programmers do not know the difference between Halloween and
Christmas?

Because   Oct31 = Dec25

No it isn't. That's Christmas Eve. :P

I know a lot of people do all the celebrating on Dec 24, but there are some of us (probably nearly just as many) that do the celebrations on Dec 25.

Mouse test: Run all relevant self-tests for 'laser mouse'.
If 'clean'; depress left button, and move hand describing a series of on-screen B's. Check only with the upper case letter 'B' or the test will result in an automatic 'Fail'.
Lift finger from left button.
Wait ten seconds.
Lift mouse from mouse pad, and check to see if the mouse laser left a trail of letter B's anywhere on the pad. Even partial B's matter, so use a good light source and be as thorough as possible.
If no B's are found; Congratulations; your mouse is free from Ray-B's!

I don't get it. What does this have to do with programming?

^^ I'd recommend it (as being more useful) spending time replacing the clock anyway, rather than spending the time necessary to stick a derisive message on its face. It's all about time.

^Deozaan & IainB -- OK I suppose an apology is in order for the taped clock joke. I kind of imagined the unfixable wall clock as sort of a mutually common denominator between computer programming and time. But I realize I left out some helpful hints, such as that the clock would need to be hanging on a wall in someone's residence, or garage, or business, or say, a college professor's typically cluttered office, to be seen as a sort of 'standing joke', a teaser to invoke friendly conversational overtures. Even at that, I have to admit it's a bit of a stretch. The 'ha ha' part could at least be left out, to help avoid offending anyone. By the way, I broke our kitchen wall clock about a month ago while replacing the AA battery. It slipped through my fingers and fell about one foot or 1/3rd meter onto the kitchen table; really not far at all. But after resetting the time and finally getting it to stay put on the wall, there the clock hands stayed stuck 'forever' at eight minutes to twelve.

@holt: Please, don't apologise! None required - for me, at any rate. I don't insist that every joke must amuse me to be a valid joke. I'm no official guardian of "correct" humour in this thread, or the forum.
Everybody is entitled to have a different sense of humour, whether one likes/understands it, or not. Vive la différence!

Here's my opinion, as curmudgeonly as it may be:

Part of telling a good joke is knowing your audience. Programmers tend to (try to) be precise in their language, since being imprecise easily leads to bugs in code. Posting a joke in the "Best Programming Jokes" thread implies it will have to do with programming, and sets an expectation for the reader of what to look for in the punchline. If the joke has nothing to do with programming, then it seems fair that a programmer reading the joke may get caught up time trying to find the programming part of the joke instead of appreciating the joke on its own merits.

If you want to tell a silly joke that's not about programming, go right ahead. We already have the Silly Humor thread, where such a joke can be given all the appreciation it deserves.
