Jest for the fun of it

Did you spot our April Fool’s stories?


We tend to take our work very seriously. After all, what could be more serious than playing with gadgets, video games and watching movies. However, ’twas 1st April and we couldn’t let the day go past without a joke or two.

To show that we geeks have a sense of humor too, we posted a number of fake articles across the Tbreak network. The first person who can spot two fake articles across the Tbreak network and post links to them in the comments below will win a really cool 2GB USB Drive Wrist Band from Microsoft.

While you try to spot the articles, we’ll leave you with a few geek jokes courtesy of Slashdot.

Q: How many programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: None. It’s a hardware problem.

A doctor, a lawyer,and an engineer are sentenced to death. Why is not important to the story…what’s important is that the death sentence will be carried out in France – via guillotine.

The doctor is first. The executioner straps him down, hoists the glittering blade aloft, and lets it drop…whereupon it sticks about halfway down.

Now, it’s a well-known tradition in capital punishment that if the execution apparatus fails for any reason, this is interpreted as a sign from God, and the death sentence is commuted. Accordingly, the doctor walks away, still very much alive.

The lawyer is next. The executioner straps him down, hoists the glittering blade aloft, and lets it drop…whereupon it sticks in the exact same spot.
Same rules apply…lawyer walks.

The engineer is last. The executioner straps him down, as he hoists the blade aloft, the engineer twists his neck around, peers up at the blade, and says:

“You know, I think I see your trouble there…”
