Q. Why do systems programmers confuse Halloween and Xmas?

A. Because Oct 31 = Dec 25

I got it too. I've been meaning to get a life for some time, but I can't find any on e-Bay or Amazon.

Unfortunately, I'm sad enough to understand it, I really wish I wasn't.

Took me a minute, or 74 seconds.

I had a life, not sure what I did with it.

If getting the joke implies the want of a life. What does it say about the person that posted it?

I think if you get the joke, you know more than you let on to know...but that's just me!

Of course. There are a lot of things I know that I will never admit to. Knowledge is power, you know.

I sort of got it. I sort of have a life, too.

Reminds me of my brother's favourite joke which has some people laughing like drains and others completely non-plussed:

There are only 10 types of people in the world
those who understand binary, and those who don't.


(I'll get my coat!)

I loved this joke and, I have to say, Gillimalta's is one of my favourites - it's just a shame that these only work in text and you can't really tell them out loud:P
