Programmers take everything literally as our instructions to the device are literal.
So the condition as expressed literally was to bring back 6 cartons of milk if the store had eggs in stock.
A "normal" person would interpret it to mean bring back 6 eggs if they have any eggs and one carton of milk. As they would do what makes the most sense even if that isn't the literal request.

^ Oh -- I thought of the programming 'easter eggs' -- didn't see how there would be any on milk bottles.

I have some other good programmer jokes.

What does a programmer use for birth control?
His personality.

Why did the programmer cross the road?
Because that's what he did last year.

What's the definition of an outgoing programmer?
He stares at your feet when he talks to you instead of his own.

if($eggs){
$milk = 6;
}

return $milk;
}


:D I like the ternary operator version as well:

int
get_milk()
{
	return ( shop_has_eggs() ) ? 6 : 1;
}

Ah, I was gonna use the ternary, but I figured for anyone who didn't get the joke wouldn't get that either. :laugh:

Hahaha! If it wasn't so damn expensive to do that and it would require me to get my lazy ass back to the store, I'd do that!
