On Foot Shooting, a Programmer's Guide

Here is some quality humor for you coder's out there. It is an extensive, multilingual guide to shooting yourself in the foot. Never forget that there are only 10 types of people in the world ...

Some of my favs are:

You shoot yourself in the foot.

You accidentally create a dozen clones of yourself and shoot them all in the foot. Providing emergency medical assistance is impossible since you can’t tell which are bitwise copies and which are just pointing at others and saying, “That’s me, over there.”

After importing java.awt.right.foot.* and java.awt.gun.right.hand.*, and writing the classes and methods of those classes needed, you’ve forgotten what the hell you’re doing.

But my personal favorite is

% ls
foot.c foot.h foot.o toe.c toe.o
% rm * .o
rm: .o: No such file or directory
% ls

See the link for more fun :)
