By humor, do you mean blood, sweat, and tears? That's an integral part of coding.

    Yes. See Humor for a definition.

      This conversation is going too meta for me. :)

      Edit: Added the (famous) limerick below and changed to to too too. Two Os are better than one, i guess:

      A tutor who tooted the flute
      Tried to tutor two tooters to toot;
      Said the two to the tutor,
      “Is it harder to toot, or
      To tutor two tooters to toot?”

        Meta? Did someone mention metahumour?

        This conversation is going to meta for me. :)

        I think that is a fine destination, but I don't think it was headed there just as a service to you. ;)
