There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer. When asked to define "Great" he said, "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read, stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level, stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!" He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages.

Can't say I have any good IT jokes, but this is by far my favorite joke:

A travelling saleman is driving by a farm, and, of course, his car breaks down. He walks to the farmhouse for help and while he's going there he sees a pig with a wooden leg.

He gets to the farm house and the farmer helps him call a tow truck. As he's waiting, he says to the farmer, "Hey, what's up with the pig with the wooden leg?"

The farmer says, "that pig? I love that pig. It saved my life! I was caught in a fire and that pig ran into the building and dragged me out through the roaring flames!"

The salesman says, "Wow, that's amazing. Is that when the pig got hurt?"

the farmer says, "No way. When you've got a pig that amazing you don't eat him all at once."

Re: ha ha
@ClareCM- That's hilarious. I actually interviewed for a job writing error messages at a major IT company that shall remain nameless. They briefly got it in their heads that friendlier error messages would be read more. 

But funny enough, before they hired someone, they decided they were crazy and didn't fill the job. Would have loved to try it. :)

@David. hahaha. I love a good farm joke. Here's my farm-animal-PG-rated contribution:

What do you call a cow that has just given birth?  Decaffeinated!

I'll try to think of a good IT joke. I don't know if I can top the SQL joke however - that's a good one.

NIcky,

Brilliant! Really Brilliant Joke!



I have to admit iPhone Fanatics won't love it one bit!!!

Here's my Joke(albleit an old One);

A PC Owner calls Customer Support telling them that his Coffee Cup Holder is Broken.

The Customer Support Exec sounds totally perplexed on the Phone and asks the Consumer-Sir,Could you please tell me what is written on the Cup Holder?

It says Play and Eject!!!

Brilliant one![That tray table was actually a DVD Drive].
