It’s an old joke and probably completely worn out, but I couldn’t resist writing about it. After all, I’m a Geek and programmer from way back, so it hits home.
Q. Why do programmers confuse Halloween with Christmas?
A. Because Oct. 31 and Dec. 25 are the same; therefore, Halloween = Christmas!
If you don’t get it, you’re not a true Geek. A true Geek could give a more sensible interpretation of the relationship OCT. 31 = DEC. 25 than “Halloween = Christmas!”
Can you also explain why 16 = 20 = 10? How about 86 = 126 = 56?
Fun stuff. Geek entertainment.
BTW, Googling is Verboten! Those who Google will receive a Schlag in den Arsch!
