Mainframe programmer joke.
Why do programmers confuse Christmas and Halloween?
Because OCT 31 = DEC 25
When I started on DMIV hierarchical databases running on GCOS 8 the above was considered extremely funny.

My A level maths teacher was a tall thin scottish nun who always made me, Mark, Robin and John sit at the back during double maths on a Friday afternoon. We finally asked her why she did this on a week long retreat at a monastery called Kintbury in the South of England. Her answer was, 'If you're all sat at the back I can't smell your breath so i don't have to raise your drinking as a disciplinary issue'.
Always had a lot of respect for Sister *** after that, especially when she demonstrated she could drink us all under the table while we were at the retreat.
God bless you Sister, wherever you are now.
They don't know what's going on do they? So instead of fixing the problem they bodge it. FFS they've had 4 years to work out what's going on. Numpties. And God help Mr and Mrs Martin if they ever ring the police because they need them.
Wanders off muttering to self in search of more beer......
Seriously, I live and work in Manchester and I haven't come across anybody saying they're going to get an ID card. The usual response when you ask people about ID cards is either:
a) No thanks, I know who I am
b) What, you need a passport to get an ID card? Then WTF do I need an ID card for?
This government is a bunch of fucking not rights if you ask me.
Umm, that would be the famous quote where the U-Boat captain demands
'Your name will also go on the list! What is it?'
of the singer of
'Whistle while you work, Hitler is a twerp, he's half-barmy, so's his army, whistle while you work!'
and Mainwaring shouts 'Don't tell him Pike'
You can look it up on the internets you know.
