JavaScript has definitely arrived when it’s featured in Dilbert.

That actually bought out a chuckle.

Comment by Anirudh — November 17, 2007

@Anirudh: Yeah, me too.

I’d like to see what he’d do with Python or Ruby on Rails…

Comment by BookWise — November 17, 2007

great stuff. …Scott Adams was an AT&T employee I believe…

Comment by Mark Holton — November 17, 2007

Dilbert is always soooo true…

@Dean: notice the Flash reference and the order, though. :(

Comment by Olmo Maldonado — November 17, 2007

I had to read that twice in order to get it. Losing my touch.

Comment by Steve — November 17, 2007

now I understood what is “a movie about coffee”, but what does the last big IF mean?

Comment by chenggn — November 17, 2007

I get it, he wants a spell checker! :P

Comment by chenggn — November 17, 2007

someone says “coffee” is java and the “guy in tight” is flash.

but I thought the “guy in tight” is his programer, and “a movie about coffee” means his programmer works all night with coffee, looks like a movie.

Comment by chenggn — November 17, 2007

chenggn, the IF isn’t part of the joke, he was just empowering the IF (like shouting it…)

haha that was a good one btw :-)

To state the obvious, the “IF” is absolutely part of the joke. The manager (or whoever he is) still thinks he is correct even though dilbert corrected him.

@chenggn: Failboat. JavaScript = Java Script = Coffee Script = Script about Coffee = Movie about Coffee. Guy in Tights = Flash Gordon

Comment by Gavin — November 18, 2007

Gavin,

You would be wrong about that, Flash = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wally_West (Current continuity)

Comment by Artheos — November 18, 2007

@Gavin: The Flash, not Flash Gordon.

Comment by Matt — November 19, 2007

FYI: Flash Gordon also wore tights ;)

Comment by Dustin Diaz — November 19, 2007

Yeah, but he wasn’t fast :-)

Comment by Shane — November 19, 2007

Flash.. ah-hah… defender, of the universe

Go on, try and get that song out of your head :-)

Comment by Dan F — November 19, 2007

Wow, geeks over analyzing a joke and still finding it… um… humorous… once finally getting it, even with the whole timing thing out the window – CAL(chuckle a litte) :). I loved it even though it, um, took me a moment. Wonder what your average non-geek thinks of it?

Comment by Eric — November 19, 2007

@Eric: They probably get it quicker. We’re too used to “Flash” and “JavaScript” having actual meaning to get puns on the literal terms.

Comment by Trevor — November 19, 2007

@Peter Hellberg, I knew he was still thinking he was right but it was obvious so I didn’t think it’s part of the joke but you’re right, my bad.
