    Eight bytes walk into a bar. The bartender asks, "Can I get you anything?"

    "Yeah," reply the bytes. "Make us a double."

    Programming is like sex. One mistake and you have to support it for the rest of your life.

    Also, the first time I saw "<sarcasm> *insert smart-ass remark* </sarcasm>" in an online forum, I couldn't stop laughing.

    A college professor of mine said only programmers would find an infinite loop in shampoo instructions.

    The way I heard the joke back in the day was this way:

    How did the computer programmer die in the shower?

    By following the instructions on the shampoo bottle:

    LATHER
    RINSE
    REPEAT

    Another good one is the old bumper sticker that read "Forth Love If Honk Then". And yes, the wacky syntax drove me away from attempting to learn that particular language.

    A SQL query goes into a bar, walks up to two tables and asks, "Can I join you?"

    The reply: "Yes, naturally."

    i'll see your infinite loop and raise you one.

    while ( ! ( succeed = try() ) );

    epic. also an infinite loop of fail/reload/fail. ;)

    Maybe more maths than programming but -

    f(x) went into a bar. The bartender says "Sorry, we don't cater for functions".
