In the past few months, I’ve been on the receiving end of several conversations to the effect of “Why do you use the word ‘bacon’ in some of your code examples? Are you a flaming anti-vegan, or just a pork lobbyist?”
I learned Ruby from the classic Why’s Poignant Guide to Ruby. Or rather, I read The Poignant Guide cover to cover and then decided to learn Ruby.
I attempted to [read it] then I started sticking a pen in my eye because I was so annoyed.
Unfortunately, The Poignant Guide is required reading for ALL Ruby programmers! Remove all pens from your pockets, then read at least…
Remember, we need to keep up with other developers who are much funnier than us!
This has been a public service announcement.
