So A Model, A View, and a Controller Walk Into a Bar

archived, code comments edit

At the risk of embarrassing myself and eliciting more groans, I am going to share a joke I made up for my Code Camp talk. I was inspired to come up with some humor based on Jeff’s Sesame Street Presentation Rule post. I fully understand his post was addressing something deeper than simply telling a gratuitous joke in the presentation.

The context is that I just finished explaining the various dependencies between the Model, View, and Controller within the MVC pattern.

UPDATE: Updating this joke as the feedback comes in. The original is at the bottom.

So a Model, a View, and a Controller walk into a bar and sit down to order some drinks from the bartender. The View has a few more drinks than the others and turns to the Model and says,

“Can you give me a ride home tonight? I know I always burden you with this, but I can never depend on that guy.”

Ba dum dum.

I am refining it a bit and posting it here in the hopes that I can improve upon it with your feedback. :)

Here’s the original as a point of comparison.

“Can you give me a ride home tonight? I know I always burden you with this and never ask him, but I can never depend on that guy.”

Thanks for the feedback!
