Against my better judgement...

Friday 5 March, 2004 (10:31AM GMT)

Now and then a web maker or two might fall bored, reach the heights (or depths?) of geekdom and come up with some Web Standards jokes...

Q: Why did the XHTML actress turn down an Oscar?
A: Because she refused to be involved in the presentation.

Q: Why was the font tag an orphan?
A: Because it didn't have a font-family.

Q: Why do CSS designers have too many children?
A: Because they employ lots of child selectors.

Q: Why was IE5's 3-metre wide cell in the insane asylum smaller than IE6's 3-metre wide cell?
A: Because the width of the cell included the padding.

And my personal favourite...

Q: Why was the XHTML bird an invalid?
A: Because it wasn't nested properly.

Boom boom.

I hang my head in shame...

CSS = Constantly sucking stuff
PHP = Popa hate pancakes.
Pearl = Pancakes eaten alive really late.
Javascript = Judging a violin alcooholic seemed convenient rapidly in past times. (for JAVA means "Judging a violin alcooholic")
ASP : Alive sucking pancakes !!!
