A Thought Experiment

» 03 November 2006 » In Funny, PHP »

George related this gem at the Zend Conference. Someone (let’s call him Bob) came up to him, and had this exchange:

Bob: If you were a PHP function.. which function would you be?
George: <unblinking stare of incredulity>
Bob: I am part Native American, so I think I would be apache_terminate_child().
George: <backs away slowly>

    Shouldn’t that be apache_child_terminate()?

    That’s a bit like (tipsy) conversation at the Pirate party:

    >> What’s your favourite PHP function
    > func_get_arrrrrgs()?
    >>> arrrrrray_walk($thePlank)?

    .. yeah.. had to be there, I guess (-:

    I guess each() of us are new() at first and eventually we all die(). Well, some of us may exit() prematurely.

    In between, we sleep() a lot, require($food), include($people) in our lives and aggregate($belongings).

    By the way, one of my ancestors was a pow() before he explode().
