|A tourist is browsing in a pet shop when he overhears a customer purchasing a monkey for £5000. He is shocked at the price since monkeys usually cost a few hundred pounds.|
He asks the owner why the creature is so expensive.
"Well", comes the reply, "that was a C monkey. It can program in C very fast, tight code, no bugs. It's good value at that cost"
The tourist continues browsing. At the rear of he shop he finds further monkeys, some of which are priced at £10,000! He is astonished, and again questions the owner.
"That monkey", he replies "is the C++. It does object-orientated programming, visual C++, even some java. Excellent value."
The tourist then discovers one monkey, all alone, with a price tag of £50,000! "Hey", he shouts from the back of the shop."With a price like this, I want to hear what the heck this one does!"
The shopkeeper joins the tourist at the expensive monkey's cage. He shakes his head. "To be honest, I don't know if that does anything" he states, "but it says it's a consultant!"
