A tourist walks into a pet shop in the city and looks around the
cages on display. While he is there, another customer walks in and said
to the shopkeeper, "I'll have a C monkey, please".
The shopkeeper nods, goes over to a cage at the side of the shop and
takes out a monkey. He fits a collar and gives the monkey to the
customer, saying "That'll be $5,000". The customer paid and walked away
with his monkey.
Startled, the tourist goes over to the shopkeeper and said, "That was
a very expensive monkey and most of them are only a few hundred dollars.
Why did it cost so much?" The shopkeeper said "that monkey can program
in C with very fast, tight code, no bugs, well worth the money." The
tourist starts to look at the monkeys in the cage. He says to the shop
keeper, "That one is even more expensive, $10,000! What does it do?"
"That one is a C++ monkey; it can manage object-oriented programing,
Visual C++, even some Java, all the useful stuff", the shopkeeper said.
The tourist looks round for a little longer and sees a third monkey
in a cage on its own.
The price tag round its neck says $50,000. He gasps and tells the
shopkeeper, "That one costs more than all the others put together! What
on earth does it do?" "Well," says the shopkeeper, "I don't know if it
actually does anything, but says it is a Consultant. Comedy Zone
Bill, Jim, and Scott were at a convention together and sharing a
large suite on the top of a 75 storey sky scraper. After a long day of
meetings they were shocked to hear that the elevators in their hotel
were broken and they would have to climb 75 flights of stairs to get to
the room. Bill said to Jim and Scott, let's break the monotony of this
unpleasant task by concentrating on something interesting. I'll tell
jokes for 25 flights, and Jim can sing songs for 25 flights, and Scott
can tell sad stories the rest of the way.
At the 26th floor Bill stopped telling jokes and Jim began to sing.
At the 51st floor Jim stopped singing and Scott began to tell sad
stories. "I will tell my saddest story first," he said. "I left the room
key in the car!". funshun
