Somebody left a glass of milk next to the keyboard.
The glass is half full.
The glass is half empty.
The milk's in the wrong half of the glass.
Pascal (Delphi) programmers:
Well, what type of milk is it?
No thanks; I drink straight from the jug.
No thanks; I drink straight from the cow.
No thanks; I'm still breast feeding.
I'LL DRINK IT IF YOU CAN GIVE ME UNTIL NEXT YEAR.
Fuzzy logic guys:
I may or may not have drunk some part of that milk.
I know I drank it - just don't ask me how.
Non-procedural language programmers: I drank it when
nobody was looking.
UI designers: ?What's that crap in my glass?
I drank Glass * .49999999 . . . but don't hold me to that.
Where's my straw?
Where's my pump?
Nahh . . . too easy.
Shareware game author:
That glass is free; the next one you have to pay for.
Where'd the rest of the milk go?
What makes you think that's milk?
We know what it really is.
Copy protection crazies:
Somebody drank half my milk and didn't pay for it!
Free Software Foundation:
That milk is the cow's contribution to all mankind!
That damned cat got into the milk again!
Not enough market share to be Microsoft Milk.
You guys really oughta be drinking Perrier.
Rent the glass from us and we'll fill it with something we know
is good for you.
Thanks for getting your milk witholding correct this year.
