These are some jokes I found on C++. Its a valuable resource for people who do stand up comedy or if you need material for your next party.
Q: How many C++ programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: You’re still thinking procedurally. A properly designed light bulb object would inherit a change method from a generic light bulb class, so all you would have to do is send a light-bulb-change message.

“The evolution of languages: FORTRAN is a non-typed language. C is a weakly typed language. Ada is a strongly typed language. C++ is a strongly hyped language.” (Ron Sercely)
“C(++) is a write-only, high-level assembler language.” (Stefan Van Baelen)
“C++ would make a decent teaching language if we could teach the ++ part without the C part.” (Michael B. Feldman)
“The great thing about Object Oriented code is that it can make small, simple problems look like large, complex ones.”
