10 Funny Programming Jokes and Quotes

As a person who enjoys computers and programming, I have noticed that there are a lot of jokes and quotes that I find funny that other people don’t.  So for all my fellow programmers out there, I hope you enjoy the following material.

  1. This is my favorite cartoon/joke out of all of them.A programmer's take on the chalkboard punishment
  2. “Programmers are in a race with the Universe to create bigger and better idiot-proof programs, while the Universe is trying to create bigger and better idiots.  So far the Universe is winning.”
    (Rich Cook)
  3. “Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.  Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are–by definition–not smart enough to debug it.”
    (Brian Kernighan)
  4. “If debugging is the process of removing bugs, then programming must be the process of putting them in.”
    (Edsger W. Dijkstra)

  5. “Commenting your code is like cleaning your bathroom — you never want to do it, but it really does create a more pleasant experience for you and your guests.”
    (Ryan Campbell)
  6. “If Java had true garbage collection, most programs would delete themselves upon execution.”
    (Robert Swell)
  7. “The most likely way for the world to be destroyed, most experts agree, is by accident.  That’s where we come in; we’re computer professionals.  We cause accidents.”
    (Nathaniel Borenstein)
  8. “If at first you don’t succeed, call it version 1.0”

  13. It is funny and I enjoy reading these jokes.

    This is my favorite joke to tell. It's completely silly, and 9 out of 10 people mess up the answer. It's pretty easy too, you just have to ask the following line of questions:

    What comes after 9, tin or ten?
    What is 5 + 5, tin or ten?
    What comes before 11, tin or ten?
    What is an aluminum can made out of, tin or ten? (aluminum obviously is the answer, but almost everyone will say tin and look like a silly goose and then have a good laugh at their goose-ness)
    You can pretty much use any number combination you want, as long as the answer is 10. It's fun.
