La Coder Qui Rit

LVQRHumor comes in many guises. Coding humor is no exception. Next to jokes in comments like:

  // Message for the dyslexic:
  // There is a Dog!

humor can be be code specific like this LOC from a message server:

  for (-8  ;-(  8)  ;o)

or, alternatively:


Some go overboard (as coders often do) and change the language all together:

likepython latinperl
Like, Python Lingua::Romana::Perligata

To me, it becomes interesting when I have to wonder: “Is it a joke, or not?” Look at the code below and tell me, given that this is part of the MINIX POSIX compliance test set, is this juste pour rire?
