Puns

Pages: 12
Since the topics here are getting dry, I want you guys to post as many puns here as possible.

I'll start.

I would copy and paste "pun " 8192/4 times here to satisfy your request, but I think that would be considered spam. And it wouldn't contribute to intellectual discussion, either. I guess the post I would have written would have been identical to yours.

Seriously LB, you know what I meant.

cout<<"puns"<<endl;

Which language is that? It looks like either lua or Python.
its most likely not even a widely used language, but an in-house language he/she uses...

@IamaBEAR

Where did you define infinity... and where is your main function?
All aboard the failthread! Will it derail? You bet Jurassic will.

Does anyone know any good programming-related puns? Actual puns, that is, rather than just jokes. Most I've seen are quite lame, apart from:

There are 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

which works, I suppose.

And I quite like:

If you hold a Unix shell up to your, can ear, can you hear the C?

and

Adam and Eve were walking through the forest when they came across some snakes with chain saws cutting down trees and making rustic furniture. Adam asked, "what are you doing?"

One of the snakes hissed, "God told us to go forth and multiply ... but we're just adders, we can't multiply without log tables"

You know when you're in a situation at school or work or something and you're asked to do something you have no idea about? A typical response would be "That's wayyy above me." Like, too high level for you to be able to do reasonably.
It's always tickled me to respond "That's too low level." or, "That's below me." in reference to lower level programming that I'm not able to comprehend.

Its similiar to Python except it has a semicolon to denote the end of a statement were as Python uses whitespace for that.

In Python it would be

1
2
while True:
    print "Puns"


Or if you prefer Python 3

1
2
while True:
    print("Puns")



Though the semicolon might have been a reflex from C++ and other languages ;p I know I do it all the time.

nope print("hello") print("world") is invalid syntax

But yes, it was a reflex

[ 'puns' printNl ] repeat.
I shoot myself in head...

There are 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary, those who don't, and those that didn't expect this question to be in base 3.
There are 10 kinds of people in the world: those who understand binary, those who don't, those that still didn't expect this question to be in base 3 but for a different reason, and those that expected this question to be in base 4.

I think that is BF, but am too lazy to execute it to see what it does. But I think it is the Hello world program, and do not get the pun?
I C what you did there.
