How Computer Programming Pollutes The Mind

This post will probably not make sense to you. Still, I’ll soldier on.

As I had a quick lunch over at the UIC cafeteria today while picking up a schoolbook for MizSplotchy, I noticed a Studs Terkel autograph on a poster where he had also scrawled “Peace = Sanity”.

The first thought that popped into my head was, to properly indicate equality and not assignment, he should have used “==” instead of “=”.

  1. Dear Mr. Splotchy,

    Due to your blogging prowess, creativity, and excellent quality, we regret to inform you that you have been issued a blogging citation.

    You may collect the citation at this secret government facility:

    In order to make it a proper citation, a preposterous yet depressing theme is invoked.

    We feel another award might have sent your ego into critical mass so unfortunately this step had to be taken.

    Thank you for your time.
