Gambler Tuesday

A coder’s lament

Doing what I normally do when leading up to Gambler Tuesday, I search around Twitter looking for people talking about “The Gambler.” One day, a couple weeks back, I came across this twoot:

I thought to myself, “Self, this seems really interesting. You should click on it.”

So I did.

What I found was nothing short of magic. It’s a parody of “The Gambler” from the perspective of a commuting code monkey. Here’s a small sample:

Now every coder knows that the secret to survivin’
Is knowin’ what to throw away and knowing what to keep.
Cause every lines a keeper and every line is buggy,
And the best that you can hope for is to manage project creep.

I would love to hear somebody cover this. It’s just absolutely brilliant.
