Hospitals of Washington State - Dr. Lee G. Bender of Washuck Hospital spoke to reporters after all hospitals in Washington were suddenly filled with programmers that had blown off their legs.
“MacroHard called for emergency assistance about 11:00 this morning. All their programmers blew off their legs at once. By the afternoon every bed was full in the whole state.”
We contacted Dr. Hidde N. Markov at MacroHard to find out the details. Here is what Markov told us.
“Everybody knows about the bug in Windowless X, where all your data gets deleted? Well we were rushing to fix it before all the data of our customers got deleted, permanently.
“Then this programmer checked in a class (program) that everyone used. It called itself forever and never returned. It was hidden, so nobody had a clue how to fix it. All the computers started to overheat at once; then they exploded, blowing all the legs off our programmers on the network.
“Of course we were warned. But who listens to a guy whose first name starts with the letters: ‘B’ ‘J’.”
After a mintute of research, I found that warning, cited below:
“C makes it easy to shoot yourself in the foot; C++ makes it harder, but when you do it blows your whole leg off.” - the creator of C++, Bjarne Stroustrup
