Computer-Oriented Humor (COHUM): ''I get it''.

Friedman L Hershey H. Friedman

All humor is to some extent cultural and, perhaps to that same extent, humor serves to define, explain and enhance our understanding of a particular culture. The computer industry, now over 50 years old, is a mature culture characterized by industriousness, creativity, energy, bureaucracy and wit. The computer itself has lately become something of a cultural icon or signpost. Yet the computer industry has always seemed to breed its own special brand of humor - intelligent, somewhat superior, slyly subversive - even from its very earliest days.
