    Testing Jokes / Anecdotes

    Hi Guys,

    A guy at work told me a joke today to do with testers putting in a lightbulb. Can't quite remember it, but i wondered if anyone had any other jokes or anecdotes as it seems pretty random!

    None - they just log the fact that the room is dark
    Testers don't fix anything

    Cem Kaner based a whole talk around this joke

    Was quite amused by a photo of a VW Beetle which had a rego plate that read 'feature'.

    I have vague memories of a joke about a guy who was fired for continuously finding fault with everything his company did, but can't remember the set up. [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

    Think the joke was:

    Q: How many testers does it take to change a lighbulb?

    A: None, they have recognised that the bulb has gone, its up to someone else to change it.


    I received it aswell. Must admit I find it slightly derogatory. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Then there's the other side of the coin:

    How many software engineers does it take to change a lightbulb?
    None, it's a hardware problem.
