5 terrible SQL jokes from Sam (plus a picture puzzle)
As my delegates can attest, there is nothing I enjoy more than a good bad joke. Here are 5 of my absolute favourites which you will likely hear if you attend one of my SQL courses.
Actually, my all-time favourite SQL joke is this one about "little Bobby Tables", but I think Andy's blogged about this one previously.
1) Better than X-Factor?
What do you call the SQL talent show? Select a *!
The picture shows the front cover of a zine called Become a Select Star by Julia Evans.
2) Would you watch either movie?
If Access is the original ...
... is this the sequel?
3) Just the word Spoonerism is funny
What is the difference between a cat and a select statement?
And optionally a semi-colon too.
4) Dropping the knowledge
How do we know that databases are really clumsy?
They are constantly dropping things ... like the Mic, the Beat, the News and your ex....
5) Who said weddings are a transactional thing?
Two SQL transactions ask the minister to marry them. "Only if you're willing to commit", replies the minister.
Who knew that even SQL statements could form a UNION?
How bad can my graphics get? A final puzzle
Which course that Wise Owl offer is this?
Which Wise Owl course is this?
