JAVA Jokes - The fun side of JAVA

Too much of JAVA technical stuff , now here is a collection of some JAVA jokes that caught my eye..

9:00 AM
Project manager: ” Where is Joe?”
Java programmer A: ” You know he is always lazy loadded.”

1:00 PM:
Project manager: ” Where is Joe??”
Java programmer B: ” He is in passive mode.”

5:30 PM:
Project manager: ” Could I see Joe in rest of my life ?????”
Java programmer C: “Never, he has been garbage collected.”


Why did the Integer drown?
Cos he couldn’t Float!


Q: Why did the Java Chicken cross the road?
A: He didn’t, he was just referred to on the other side.


yo mama’s so fat… she get an ArrayOutOfBoundException!
yo mama’s so poor… she does garbage collection for a living!
yo mama’s so ugly… her java.lang.reflect took down the mirror site!


Two ints and a Float in a bar. They spot an attractive Double on her own. The first int walks up to her. “Hey, baby”, he says, “my VM or yours”. She slaps him and he walks back dejected.

The second int walks over. “Hey, cute-stuff, can I cook you Beans for breakfast”. After a quick slapping, he too walks back.

The Float then ambles over casually. “Were those two primitive types bothering you?”, he remarks.

“Yes. I’m so glad you’re here”, she says. “They just had no Class!”

Buy and Sell Ipod to become richer!!

Australia’s Commonwealth bank uses the comparative price of iPod Nano’s, as an index, to compare global currencies and purchasing power across countries. In the results of their latest survey, Brazil is the costliest place to buy an iPod and India comes second. The cheapest iPod can be bought in Canada followed by Hong-Kong.

Suddenly, iPod arbitrage sounds like a good business plan. Buy them in Hong-Kong and sell them in Brazil ;-)

Yahoo has come up with yet another Web 2.0 gizmo. This one is called Yahoo Pipes. Its like Unix pipes applied to the web!

It goes like this .. anybody with a Yahoo ID can define a “pipe”. A pipe at its most basic form, picks data from “X” source and applies “Y” transform over it and finally provides “Z” output. Here, X could be anything ranging from an RSS/ATOM feed, any URL emiting JSON or XML content (even plain HTML works, I think ..), or it could be user input. Y implies a transform like applying a filter on the data, searching on Yahoo, Google or Flickr etc and Z is the final output you get. The best part is you can do all this “piping” using Yahoo’s web-visual editor (see the pic below), without knowing a thing about XML,HTML,RSS,whatever …

I created a Pipe just for kicks .. its at href=""

This pipe consumes the RSS feed from’s technology section and extracts all posts that have the keyword “Google” in it. Simple, but cute ! ;-)
