Me: [tweets joke about being a programmer breaking your brain] [follow-up fictional example demonstrating joke]

Some dude online: “uh that example has an error, it won’t work.”


@ashfurrow see, this is why i don't make jokes

everything i say is 💯% serious

try { example(); } catch (e) { noOneLikesAPedant(); }

This is where having a sock account called "Joke Explain Bot" comes in handy.
