Please Turn Off Your Pseudocode Jokes

Jesper, on his new programming blog:

Programming jokes based on emulating code are not ever funny. They chafe at the mind of their target audience the way the question whether a conjoined twin has “bonded” with its fellow twin must be. Not only are they focused on the form instead of the meaning, they are tired and predictable and don’t bring along insights nor laughs.

I am aware that I sound very convinced of my own opinion, and that I might sound like a bit of an ass because of that. I take comfort in knowing that at least I don't sound like as much of an ass as the people who keep telling those pseudocode jokes. (If I couldn't hold that opinion as a guideline on my own damn programming weblog and espouse it as such, where can I?)
