in thread Does Humor Belong in Programming?

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?”

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