Hi there, I'm getting consumed by monotony and lockdown blues. 😒 It's Friday and I'm sure some of us could use some uplifting.

So, by any means:

Please drop the BEST dev joke or pun that you know! Memes are very welcome too!



No joke or pun is too silly. Drop them below and make someone's day! 😊

I'll be lurking...

If you Google javascript async I promise it will get resolved.

Then you'll be like
Aaaaaaaawait

I told this joke when I was interviewed for the job I still have today (eight years on April 22nd):

This one programmer is showing his new keyboard to another one. "Hey man, you've got to see this, my new keyboard is made out of solid metal!"

His friend says, "Why on Earth? Are you using it to stop bullets or something?"

"No, but Java is strongly typed!"

An oldie:
A developer is going to the shops and asks their partner if they need anything, "yes" they say, "milk, and if they have eggs get 6".
When the developer returns they unpack the shopping and their partner exclaims "why did you get 6 bottles of milk?"
The developer replies: "Because they had eggs"

Another time, the dev is at the shop and gets a phone call from their partner, who tells them, "While you're there, get some bread."

The dev never returned.

Why you shouldn't trust JavaScript programmers?

Because they make lots of promises but they never callback.
