Brilliant. I'd been using a cobbled together solution that was non-modular, monolithic, and inefficient — kind of a bastardized MVC (Model-View Her-Catch Her) — but it wasn't great and in need of an update, I should rework it. I'm a little surprised that their patterns don't have some of the classics, such as Friend Refactoring — migrating a friend object into a fully entangled object. Warning: decreases portability and modularity and involves severe costs if the objects need to be separated later.

Jokes aren't funny when you explain why they're funny.

Odd, and here I was thinking that jokes which are only funny to a small group of people probably shouldn't be posted on the main page.

Unless i'm wrong, I which case...

Hey does anyone else here find it funny that Brian is getting along much better with his wife now that he's out of town so much? I mean what's that all about!.

Oh, no one else finds that funny.

Guess I have to learn 'bout comedy.

I thought it was pretty funny. MeFi surely has enough geeky types that we're a minortity worth catering to.

The true genius from the Gang of Four was not how to create elegant enterprise software systems.

I am entirely the wrong kind of geek for this website. I read this sentence and never recovered.

It does come across like a late night coding in-joke that got completely out of hand. But it's also quite funny if you do happen to be the right kind of geek.

brool: they had that one listed as the "Friendzone Bridge".

Hey, this is really gonna help all of my friends who have been stuck with the Singleton pattern for so long! *rimshot*


Man, I wanna be a singleton so all the chicks use me! *additional rimshot*


Damn, I bet she's hot when she uses her iterator! I wanna see ALL her private data! *tomatos thrown*

Yeah, to be clear, I think it's funny, but it seemed like a little linkage would help those who didn't, but then of course it's not like they'd figure out what was going on and then burst into laughter or anything and, uh, yeah.
