    Code Monkeys


    something I got in my mail today:-
    -------
    Just for the code "monkeys"

    A tourist walked into a pet shop and was looking at the animals on display. While he was there, another customer walked in and said to the shopkeeper, "I'll have a C monkey please."

    The shopkeeper nodded, went over to a cage at the side of the shop and took out a monkey. He fitted a collar and leash, handed it to the customer, saying, "That'll be 5000."

    The customer paid and walked out with his monkey. Startled, the tourist went over to the shopkeeper and said, "That was a very expensive monkey. Most of them are only a few hundred pounds. Why did it cost so much?"

    The shopkeeper answered, "Ah, that monkey can program in C - very fast, tight code, no bugs, well worth the money." The tourist looked at a monkey in another cage.

    "Hey, that one's even more expensive! 10,000! What does it do?" "Oh, that one's a C++ monkey; it can manage object-oriented programming, Visual C++, even some Java. All the really useful stuff," said the shopkeeper.

    The tourist looked around for a little longer and saw a third monkey in a cage of its own. The price tag around its neck read 50,000. The tourist gasped to the shopkeeper, "That one costs more than all the others put together! What
    on earth does it do?"

    The shopkeeper replied, "Well, I haven't actually seen it do anything, but it says it's a project manager"
