“These are your father’s parentheses”

Posted by me on Tuesday, the 31st day of July, anno domini 2007 at 11:58 PM, local time.

Wow. Sorry guys, I know how you all hate it when I make a blog entry saying how awesome dinosaur comics or xkcd happen to be today, but seriously folks, this is why I love xkcd: I just read it and had to comment.

Seriously, with lines like “These are your father’s parentheses. Elegant weapons, for a more… civilized age.”, while an Obi-wan stick-figure carries out a stack of parentheses to a bewildered Luke, few things could make me laugh harder. This is just great stuff!

Wow, three new posts in under an hour. Now I’m just tired and should go to bed. Goodnight!

    *sigh* only funny if you program… once again, lost on you if you don’t…

    ha ha ha. So after forty more minutes of reading xkcd plus some in the morning when I saw this post, I have just dropped by to tell you this: Blog about xkcd whenever you want.

    But pam, what this comic means is that really, everybody should learn to program just to get these jokes! They are awesome!

    And Darcy, I will take your comment to heart, even if you meant it sarcastically. Xkcd is just so funny!

    After reading 146 of these things, I should say that I don’t get them all either. But I think I found one that Pam may enjoy…I did.
