Overview

You don't have to have a degree in computer science to enjoy this unique collection of funny stories, parodies, laughable true-life incidents, comic song lyrics, and jokey poems from the world of computing. Humour the Computer brings together a selection of some of the best computer-related humorous material culled from a variety of sources: news groups and FTP sites on the Internet, The New Yorker, Punch, New Scientist, BYTE, Datamation, Communications of the ACM, The Journal of Irreproducible Results, and many more. Among other topics, the 70-odd assorted writings embrace the impact of computing on our lives, hilarious hardware, silly software, first encounters with computing, computer companies that we love, programming pains, and absurd academia.
