in reply to Does Humor Belong in Programming?

Yes, definitely. I remember an article in the Sun user group magazine a long time ago about amusing compiler messages. This one is my favourite -

"a typedef name was a complete surprise to me at this point in your program"

I just found them again online here.

Cheers,

    Thanks for the link John. Some of those were pretty funny. I remember learning many a moon ago about one humorous things the UNIX programmers put into the manpage for tunefs (sp?). "You can tune a filesystem, but you can't tuna fish." I think it was an indirect reference to the band REO Speedwagon's "You can tune a piano but you can't tuna fish."
