A lady walked into a chemist (drug store) and told the pharmacist she needed some cyanide.

The pharmacist asked: "Why in the world do you need cyanide?"

The lady then explained she needed it to poison her husband.

The pharmacist's eyes got big and he said: "Lord have mercy, I can't give you cyanide to kill your husband! That's against the law! I'll lose my license... They'll throw both of us in jail and all kinds of bad things will happen! Absolutely not! You can NOT have any cyanide!"

Then the lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist's wife.

The pharmacist looked at the picture and replied: "Well, now... You didn't tell me you had a prescription."

Why do programmers mix up hallowe'en and christmas?

Because oct(31) = dec(25) !!!

Thank you thank you!

...that's probably because you're not a programmer then!

[edit] Sorry TPH, that's not very helpful of me. oct stands for octal, an 8-base numbering system; and dec stands for decimal, a 10-base numbering system. To work out the value of dec(25) we multiply the value in the second position (2) by ten and add the number in the first position (5) to get 25. Sounds obvious I know, but you need to think logically to understand this. Now we do the same thing with the octal number, but to a base of 8. Thus we multiply the value in the second position (3) by eight and add the number in the first position (1) to get 25. And there we have it: the decimal value of 25 is exactly the same as the octal value of 31.

And just in case you don't understand the binary joke: 10 in binary is the same as two in decimal (1x2)+(0x1).

There is an alternate:

There are those who believe there are two types of people in the world, and those who don't.

I like that one, it has a nice recursivity to it.

On a similar note:

There are two types of people in this world; those who divide people into two groups, and those who don't.

And a better one Tongue

There are two types of people in the world; those who walk into a room and say "Here I am", and those who say "Ah, there you are".

(rolls sleeves up) right then:

There are two types of people in this world, good and bad. The good sleep better, but the bad seem to enjoy the waking hours much more.

or

There are two types of people in this world: the French and the Vertebrates.

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.
