Missing dad jokes

Fellas,
For many episodes haven’t heard any dad jokes. How about “dad’s corner”

Here is a good one
Why did two Java methods get a divorce ?
They had a constant arguments

Why below formula throws type cast exception:
⭐️ * mean([range(1), range(5)])
Stars can’t “float”, they are hanging.

Ya’ll go together like peanut butter and jelly

Love the show, especially boomer hour. Appreciate that you guys include other language tidbits.

Hands down favorite podcast!

I’ve been listening to Coding Blocks since I started my programming journey roughly 5 years ago and I’ve been enjoying it ever since. I have to say, my favorite set of episodes you did were about Uncle Bob’s Clean Code, a book near and dear to my (and most any programmer’s) heart. The show has taught me tons of stuff I would never have otherwise known about and enriched my understanding of topics I was more familiar with. Beyond the technical, my favorite aspect of the show is how approachable and genuine it is. There’s no ego, no judgment, and no competition to be “better” or “smarter” than anyone else. It feels like having a fun (and funny) conversation with your best friends. Anyway, just wanted to say that y’all are great and this podcast is great. I’m not sure what my username is on here, but whatever it is, I look forward to hearing Outlaw attempt to pronounce it.
