Would they perhaps be functional puns? (while t (message "pun"))
Why doesn't corn use Linux? Because they don't know how to use it's KERNEL.

Ha ha. That makes me CORNY.

This whole post was so PUNNY.

Maths rather than computing...

Theorem 2.1: A cat has nine tails.

Proof:
- No cat has eight tails.
- A cat has one tail more than no cat.
- Therefore, a cat has nine tails. Q.E.D.

Theorem 2.2: A sheet of paper is a lazy dog.

Proof:
- A sheet of paper is an ink-lined plane.
- An inclined plane is a slope up.
- A slow pup is a lazy dog.
- By transitivity, a sheet of paper is a lazy dog. Q.E.D.

Theorem 2.3: A peanut-butter and jelly sandwhich is better than life itself.

Proof:
- A peanut-butter and jelly sandwhich is better than nothing.
- Nothing is better than life itself.
- By transitivity, a peanut-butter and jelly sandwhich is better than life itself. Q.E.D.

On the evilness of girls, that is an interesting proof.
However, to extrapolate to women being absolute evil is dangerous, because it discounts imaginary numbers.

I think that Travis makes a mistake in declaring that there is no such thing as imaginary money. There most certainly is, and many unsuspecting souls have been bitten by the unscrupulous money vendor. Hence, I find that, continuing:

girls = (money)2

girls = (√evil)2

Now, since we've established that evil is an inherently negative value, we get

girls = evil × i2

girls = evil × -1

or, rewritten:

girls = -evil

since two negatives make a positive, you can argue two things:

girls = +evil
girls = opposite of evil = good

That is:

girls are positively evil

or

girls are good (but they may occasionally give you the evil eye)

I suppose it depends on the girl.

(And if my wife reads this, I love you dear, because you are so not evil.)
can you be twisted yet inherently good? thas my GF; kind of good thats so misguided shes evil

I didn't learn about imaginary numbers yet.

Explain them to me please.

It's too much to type...

So first an illustrative image:

Imagine by keaton-stoos

And then, a poem!

The Mathematical i

The negative numbers were full of dismay
We have no roots, they were heard to say
What, they went on, would be the fruit
of trying to find our square root?

Matters seem to be getting out of hand
Since the negatives have taken a stand,
On the fact that positives have two roots, while they have none
They plead, would it have killed anybody to give us just one?
The square roots of 4 are + and – 2! As for -4? How unfair,
He has none! None at all. Do the math gods even care?

This lack of roots, our value does undermine
Is it some sinister plan, ‘cos we’re on the left of the number-line?
Among the more irrational negatives, one even heard cries
It is time, they said, it is time, to radicalize!!

Hearing this non-stop (somewhat justified) negativity
The mathematicians approached the problem with levity
And suggested a solution, kinda cute and fun
Lets rename, they said, the square root of minus 1!
In essence lets re-define the problem away, on the sly
by just calling this number (whatever it may be) i.

...

For the rest of the poem, and others, see:

Engllish and mixed in with math just makes life harder.

Why would someone make a math poem?
The real question is why do you spam every forum?
Why wouldn't you make a math poem. ViHart anyone?

The note from editor tells a lot.
Write in C

(To the tune of "Let It Be")

When I find my code in tons of trouble,
Friends and colleagues come to me,
Speaking words of wisdom:
Write in C.
As the deadline fast approaches,
And bugs are all that I can see,
Somewhere, someone whispers:
Write in C.
Write in C, Write in C,
Write in C, oh, Write in C.

Well, there are obviously some people who think Java is a cool programming language:
