I just invented a joke.

Probably reinvented, though I cannot find it in this form via google.

Here’s the joke:

“I’m pretty sure the guy who invented C++ didn’t know the difference between increment and excrement.”

Heh. I make myself laugh. I’ve known the pseudo-etymological relationship between increment and excrement for a number of years, but tonight is the first time it coalesced into a nice joke expressing my distaste for C++. (What other language has spawned a cottage industry of book publishers producing titles like, “How not to shoot yourself in the head with C++“.)

Related ancient joke:

There’s a new version of COBOL, it’s object oriented. It’s called “Add 1 To COBOL”
