Debugging Jokes (Part 1)

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

Just came up with this one for a starter:

Q. Why is the execution of this program so stable? A. Because there is a breakpoint at every instruction.

For those from countries in the past socialist camp like Soviet Union it might appear bugtated from a joke I heard from one Moscow State University mathematics professor when I was a student:

“Q. Why is the Communist Party course always straight? A. Because there is an inflection at every point.”
