    "Why do programmers always mix up Halloween and Christmas?

    Because Oct 31 equals Dec 25."

    Yes - it's true. Google knows everything there is to know and what it doesn't know isn't worth knowing....

    Nice one, have not heard that one before.
    It's just as good as the old standby -

    There are only 10 types of people in the world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.

    Or

    $DO || ! $DO ; try
    try: command not found

    All these jokes are pretty neat (love me these kinds of things!).

    However, I'm with GlenL - yay for Mr. Google, my best friend! Without him, I'd be all "Whaaaaa?"

    :D

    P.S. Rsava, that's pretty cool! I think I'll adopt that one...

    Funny coincidence! That's exactly the site that popped up when I Googled the joke...

    Too cool.

    And thanks.
